oh, the places we'll go (in three days!)

"Oh, the places you'll go! 
There is fun to be done!
There are points to be scored.  
There are games to be won." 
* * * 
Less than three days until my sister and I are off to great places!
After a refreshing sunset jog tonight, all I wanted to do was veg out 
and reminisce on last year's adventures in the U.K. and France

You'll be on your way up!
You'll be seeing great sights!
You'll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.
* * *
I am excited for . . . 
new memories and stories to tell
seeing my sister's face when she gets her first sight of the Big Ben + Eiffel Tower 
walking through Monet's gardens with my green-thumbed mum
  hearing the waves of the coast in Nice

“You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So... get on your way!” 

be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O'Shea,
you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on your way!"

{excerpts from Dr. Suess'  Oh, The Places You'll Go}
