I want to go on vacation, I think.  The holidays are over, the weather is cold (and occasionally, though not as often as we need right now, precipitating), the Canadian geese are waddling over parking lots and leaving their … marks.  Hobby Lobby, all ready for the next revenue-extorting holiday, has a whole section of Valentine’s Day swag.

I can’t help thinking about how lovely it would be to sit on a patio somewhere balmy, listen to the shush and sough of a calm, turquoise shore, and enjoy some sunshine.  Who’s with me?
