Memories and Escapes

 I woke up with such a headache this morning which I attribute to a bad nights sleep and a "kink" in my neck. My head and shoulders carried a lot of weight today. Oh to have "special powers."  I would have given most anything if a "blink of an eye" or a "twitch of the nose" could set me into one of my favorite places in the world.  Laird's Hot Springs in British Columbia, Canada.  We would stop on our Al-Can trips as we traveled to and fro for visists to the lower 48 while living in Alaska. I can't begin to tell you how theraputic those stops were after hours on the road.

I know the thoughts of my sister's passing away one year ago today and the passing of my Dad a few years back  - with today being what would have been Mom and Dad's anniversary - also played heavy on my mind.  Oh how I longed for that beautiful natural setting as a wonderful escape to ease my mind and ward off body aches!!

I can certainly empathize with you on this one. Have a great day Cher... and I hope the kink in the neck and headache go away. Maybe time to power up the spa.
