It’s Melancholy Monday again. It’s appropriate because I’m just a bit lonely. I returned from a month in New Zealand four weeks ago and have been here alone since then (except for my amazingly wonderful blackitty, Leo the Magnificent). CD stayed longer and will start her long journey back home tomorrow. Looking for an appropriate image to reflect my mood, thinking of her forthcoming almost 24 hours in transit, I came across this one that I made in late July 2007, visiting one of my best friends in Ashland, Wisconsin.
During a stroll along the waterfront, we came across a replica of the Niña, one of the three vessels that made Christopher Columbus’s voyage from Spain to North America in 1492, that was moored there at the time. It wasn’t open for public boarding, but I managed to maneuver myself to get a silhouette with the setting sun behind it. I wish you, once again, safe travels, CD–I’m very glad it won’t take you as long to get here as it did for him!
