I'm currently pondering thoughts of some small, meaningful treasure that I will take along in my luggage to leave on each island that we visit. Has to be non-harmful to the environment, not showy, ornate or obvious - just something that I will know I've left behind. Any thoughts or brainy ideas that come into your head(s) regarding the item? Have you left treasures as you've made especially meaningful journeys somewhere in your life? I would love to hear about those treasures.
I'm planning to prepare several soul collage pages to fit in my new journal - pages that I'll "listen" to from time to time while we travel. The journal - oh, yes, I have a new journal and of course, I have several books downloaded on my Kindle for those days at sea made for relaxed reading, napping, reading. I'm wondering about a daily book of readings/devotions/contemplative writing for the trip. I know that you readers have favorite "reads" that you use seasonally, yearly, daily and I'd love your suggestions about a small volume (I might just Kindle it). So, please give this some thought and send me your list of favorites - there must be one out there that is just yearning for my attention.
Now, lest you think that I'm overworking this pilgrimage stuff, you're probably right. On the other hand, the planning is so delightful and it seems to be putting a couple of my creative activities in gear - i.e. the writing and as it happens, the painting as well - so I'm letting the planning do its thing and I'm going along for the ride:)
Again, put on your thinking caps and send me a few thoughts about the treasures to be left behind and the volume of daily reading.......I look forward to the thoughts that come from you!
