I'm a dreamer. This is not to say that I'm goal-oriented or enterprising, words that would far better suit my husband. When I say I'm a dreamer, I mean I can spend five hours of my day researching a weekend getaway to Paris. I'll get price quotes on flights, rental cars and hotels. I'll plan what sights I'd like to see, from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre, and what restaurants I'd like to dine in. (So far, I'm partial to Le Buisson Ardent, I think.)

Oh that man would look to see, the tragedies that continue to be.
I was just recently reading about people who "swim with the sharks." It seems there is some kind of thrill they get from this. I guess it's about an adrenaline rush. They get in a tank with maneaters, and sometimes they even touch them as they swim by.
I remember all of the Easters of my life more clearly than any other holidays. Christmases blur together with only a few standing out in my memory, such as the one when it snowed all day, the year I lost my voice completely and the two times that I wasn't home - one working in Washington, D.C., and another in London.
I always remember Easter as being a wonderful time of year. The colors of spring and the disappearance of snow (thankfully), the excitement of egg hunts and wearing new clothes for church on Sunday - it always was a special time in our house.

Really, we did.
