Scotland was the beginning for me. I chose to read Susanna Kearsley’s The Winter Sea, a novel set in Scotland, seeking time in this specific place. Kearsley locates her characters mostly on Scotland’s northeastern coastline, with some of them living during the 18th century and others in the 20th century.

The prospect of going on a trip invites all sorts of daydreaming. Over the last year or so, my wife and I have fantasized about our honeymoon in Paris. We’ve used language learning programs to burnish our high school French, accumulated a worrying amount of cookbooks about French cuisine, binge-watched French TV shows on DVD, and read piles of travel memoirs. But at a certain point, the dreaming must stop and the planning must start.

The open road is whispering your name. Can you hear it? The humming quickly becomes a roar as the first official day of summer approaches. What better excuse to bring the family together, explore and learn than the infinite possibilities of a road trip. Whether you are planning a relaxing Rocky Mountain weekend or a multi-state epic trip, your local Anythink should be your first stop to start checking off the pre-road trip list.

Today I found inspiration in the most unlikely of places – the Obituaries & Memorials of the Denver Post. Yep, that’s right, you heard me. Not in the words of the latest self-help guru or in the pages of the numerous religious, spiritual and motivational reading available, but right there, in the Denver Post obituaries.
