Big dreams fdotx! I hope you get there.I would go on a 5 year trip around the world, staying places long enough to immerse myself in the culture. New Zealand, Australia, Scandanavia, Patagonia, and Europe would be top choices. I'd go by plane, train, automobile, bike, foot and boat. I also have a dream of moving to Equador for a few years after a friend sent me info on expats living there...
That sounds lovely and I'm sending a wish to the universe for you that you can go see your dad soon.I would go visit my 90 year old father in NJ. He always has to come here because I'm not well enough to go there. I really miss going there! I have so many wonderful memories of my dad's house on the lake. Every summer I tell myself "next summer you'll get there" and next summer never comes........
That's so sweet Telula! Thank you! I really hope you get to see your nana again!That sounds lovely and I'm sending a wish to the universe for you that you can go see your dad soon.
I miss my nana, she's also in her 90s but can't travel or leave her bed anymore, but I so dearly wish I could see her again.
I hope the summer will come that you'll be able to visit!I would go visit my 90 year old father in NJ. He always has to come here because I'm not well enough to go there. I really miss going there!

Wishing you the best with your appeal. SSDI is a brutal process - they really just want you to give up go away, which becomes quite apparent as you go thru the stages. Sorry you’ve had to fight that battle.What comes up for me is transition. No endings, but rather the cosmic cycle alone endures.
I am darn near broke and too sick to work. I have been waiting for my SSDI appeal to be heard at hearing for 13 months. Fear tells me my house will be sold at auction on the steps of the County Courthouse for taxes after the Administrative Law Judge denies me benefits and my savings run out.
Can I embrace fear until homelessness is the vacation? Yes, sdsu, "rinse and repeat" I like that.
Oh Cort, I hope you get to. I made that trip with a friend. I went bed bound for awhile afterwards. But, there are so many wonderful art museums and just museums of so many different kinds of interest there. The castles are endless and serve to be museums themselves. Most ceilings are painted with intricate designs, trimmed in gold leaf. We toured Ireland and England. We left London till last and that was a mistake. We were over tired and there is so much to see there. We barely touched the surface of it. It was a wonderful trip. But, it is not set up for handicap or people who have trouble with mobility. The sidewalks are uneven and cobblestone streets. I thought of those people in wheelchairs and the lack of accomodations for those with limitations. I asked someone who lives there how they managed, as they were in a wheelchair. They have to go to places that they know they can get around and use the train at certain stations that accommodate and help them board. So many people walk everywhere. In London we walked and used the over ground and under ground train. We got where we needed and only got lost a few times. We drove in all the other places. A must see is Phatom of the Opera in the Queens Theater. Ohhhhhhh, so amazing!!!!!I am able to get around. I may even get up to Alaska this summer - all it takes is driving...but since resources in this scenario are taken care of and resources (ie money) are what I don't have - if I had them I would go to Europe and visit art museums!

It's a crying shame I don't live near a good art museum. I can spend all day in them... I wouldn't say I'm good at pacing though (lol)
