Wish I was There

Thinking about my trip to China last summer - especially now that the squeeze is on and school has started. This particular picture is of a Dragon Tree - I captured this image in the Imperial Garden on the grounds of the Forbidden City. It was a hot, rainy, especially crowded day. A day in which I slipped on the marble staircases (don't let anyone tell you that Crocs aren't slippery), dripped chocolate ice cream on my white Tshirt, and held my nephew's hand as we commiserated about the eventuality of school starting. Now school has started and I'm thinking about my nephew and the Forbidden City. Sigh. Why is it that vacations are so fleeting and working is so consuming?
