Flights of Fancy

Flights of Fancy

I traveled to Skopje this past weekend for a meeting for the Environmental Working Group (we are planning a Green Architecture Conference in partnership with a local university), and I had a pleasure of meeting a few Peace Corps volunteers from the previous group.  We were productive, but also squeezed in some fun – wandering around the old pazar, and visiting everyone’s favorite Indian restaurant (likely the only Indian restaurant in Macedonia).  The food was delicious, the company was delightful and the conversation veered from the usual small talk to the ridiculous. We somehow ended up discussing “flights of fancy”, which is how I coined the question written above. It was suggested that I have a future writing Valentine’s Day cards…hmm.  I think that I will remain a Peace Corps volunteer for now.

  1. Hi Rach,
    First of all, you are way more than a Valentines day card writer. Insight is what you really have and I know you will use in some way to make the world a better place.
    We depart for Florida tomorrow, then our journey begins Thursday as we fly to Lima ,Peru for 2 days, then to Cusco , in the mountains, then to Macchu Picchu for two days, then onto the Galapagos Islands for 7 days, then three days in the Amazon. Everywher we go, there will be nature at its finest, at the ocean, in the mountains, and in the jungle. We will also meet people, kids and families, share their food and learn how they live. It is a lot to digest in 18 days, but we are more than ready.
    I will take lots of pictures and hope that you can see them sometime.
    Love, Aunt Carol and Uncle Mort

  2. I bet you would be great writing quirky love cards…but I have to agree with your auntie. You are a distinguished writer, gaining international stature sharing detailed perceptions and sensitive observations of human nature. You’re blogs change my view on the world. Thank you for sharing!
