Random thoughts from Executive Editor Erika Tsang
Geography, Shmography...I've lived on the east coast for most of my life, and, when I'm on the Long Island Expressway, east means towards the ocean, west means towards Manhattan.
One day, I found myself driving on a California highway and the directions said “east”...so, I turned in the direction of the ocean. Unfortunately, it was the wrong ocean.
Road trips...My friends and I were planning to drive across the country this past summer, but when gas prices hovered near $4 a gallon, we decided it wasn't the right time. One of our destinations was Arches National Park in Utah. Months after we cancelled our trip, I discovered that one of the arches fell. Yes, fell! As in collapsed! Now, I'm determined to go to Mount Rushmore before gravity and erosion and whatever else happens.
Magnets...Whenever I go on trips, I bring home a refrigerator magnet as a souvenir. They're easy to pack and unlikely to break. They're also great conversation pieces. A colleague brought one back from South Africa, so that has the distinction of being my most exotic magnet, not to mention the farthest away from home. And then I have one from SuperSoap Weekend, featuring the 25th wedding anniversary of Luke and Laura--this has the distinction of being my most talked about magnet.
Passion...Can you tell that I like to travel? A terrific travel companion is a good book, so try Terri Garey's A MATCH MADE IN HELL, where our heroine Nicki Styx goes on a little roadtrip of her own.
Stay tuned for the rest of my blog week because there are other places I'd like to show you. Until then!
