Reverb 10: Day 3

Posted by on Friday, December 3, 2010

Today's prompt... Moment. Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

(Today's prompt is from Ali Edwards. I freaking love Ali Edwards... she's an amazing papercrafter, and even though I don't really do much of that anymore, I still read her blog faithfully.  She posts an excellent mix of life and craft.)

I am not sure about most alive... but the most excitement I felt this year is as my plane was approaching the Dublin Airport in September.  It was just like I thought it would be.  Green... lush... I was so excited.  I was operating on about three hours sleep, but approaching Ireland from across the Irish Sea was amazing.

The whole trip made me feel alive (well, except when I was dying of the plague in Scotland), but the time I spent in Ireland was my favorite.  The stories of the leprechauns.  The patchwork quilt fields.

I fully believe that international travel should be at the top of everyone's to do list. For so many more reasons than I can explain, but mostly so that you have an "alive" moment to share.
