Feb 4th 2013 12:09PM I have experienced the same stomach dropping "OH NO", followed quickly by "oh, well...I love the adventure that unintentional mistakes can bring when traveling: the small street filled with vine covered arches in Istanbul, the wrong train from Venice to Florence, where I sat with Gypsies and old women and tried to communicate about being a lost American, and ended up sharing lunch.
If you don't enjoy the heart thumping bump of the occasional miss-step...uh, don't leave your living room.

There have been years when I had a tree, and years when I did not. But the BEST tree was one that I had during a very broke, on wellfare kind of Christmas in 1972. No money, no job and a lost wallet went into the mix. There wasn't gonna be a tree for me and my 3 year old, but yep, like magic one small but very pretty tree appeared on my porch very late one night. We made decorations out of flour, salt and water and popcorn strands--it was the best tree. Ever. Every tree since bears some of those ornaments to make sure that I remember what's important about this season. Thanks for your reminder.
