05/13/2006: Starting Another Trip
It's been a busy year, so far. Recently, I finally got myself a new superzoom camera for my birthday (Review and Specs), my mother got herself an emergency carotid angioplasty and stent, in part brought on by the stress of my father's recent demise. For those who may not have heard what became of my father, please browse the memorial website I composed for him. Some of the pertinent details are there.
This trip had been planned in part to help clear our heads from all the grief detritus that builds up in the spirit following a death of someone close. We are heading west to Colorado, Utah, and possibly a loop down to the four-corners area.
