"next blog"

I am suddenly much taken with observing the travels of younger people. Right now I am living vicariously through three young people, all of whom have blogs that I stumbled on just by chance by clicking on "Next Blog" at the top of my own blog.

The first is a young man who is teaching in Japan. Blair's wonderful prose and photos of Japan and the children he is teaching can be found here.

The second is a young woman who has traveled to Paris. Misadventures of an Art Student in Paris tracks her days in beautiful Paris.

The third is a young man who is traveling with a group of friends on motorcycles from Atlanta, Georgia to Alaska, then south to Key West, then back to Atlanta. Curtis Bonds Baker has some spectacular pictures and the story line is wonderful.

I am so impressed with these young people. I am suddenly possessed with a strong desire to get my own son out there on the road. I think I will share these with him to see if I can get a fire going in his belly.

Thanks for leaving a message on my blog! I hope you manage to get through your list of things to do. Bricklaying sounds mighty fine and rather therapeutic - do let me know how you get on!
