#289 Oh, the Places We'll Go!

When last we sailed with Semester at Sea, Kelly finished our journal with this final entry dated December 13, 2006:
"We're on the last leg of our trip around the world crossing the Indiana border on I-74 toward Indianapolis. Thinking back now, the trip dissolves into uncountable little segments. We didn't go around the world. We went to Chicago, then Los Angeles, then San Diego. And each little trip generated its own memories – people, sights, and such. It's like life. You live a whole bunch of days with countless choices along the way and at the end, you look back and realize, that was my life. We saw too many people who don't have the luxury of choices to alter the direction of their lives, so we're returning with a new focus. We know that what's important is what you do along the way – the journey, the days, the choices. As we think back now, we're really thinking ahead, eager for the chance to make good choices every day."
As we prepare now for our second semester at sea, we're thinking about the effects of that first voyage. And we're wishing for more of the same.

Yours in still trying to make good choices,
