What did you listen to this week? And did anything you heard make you stop for a minute?

I started by making a list of the reason I love blogging and what has kept me going for 4 years.
- It's an easy way to keep a journal of my life and travels (the reason I started blogging in the first place.) I love going back and reading about my time in Delhi and I'm sure down the road I'll be glad to have a record of my time in Istanbul.
- It's a fun way to keep my friends and family up to date with where I am and to share my experiences.
- It's a great way to make and build relationships with people who share my interests in travel, photography and music.
- It gives me a creative outlet - something my job can sometimes lack - and having that outlet makes life more beautiful and more rewarding.

Yesterday I carefully packed my bags, said my goodbyes and headed to the airport.
After four hours I was back home with a new set do tickets to try the whole thing over again today. Luckily they found the mechanical problem before we were in the air and I got stuck at home instead of mid-trip.
I'd liked to say things are looking better today, but my flight is already delayed an hour, putting my connections at risk, so Dallas and London friends, I could be dropping you a line if things don't go as planned I wouldn't mind a chance to catch up.
UPDATE: I am still in Salt Lake - the delay got worse and I missed all my connections, so instead of flying and getting stuck in Dallas they sent me home to try again tomorrow. Fingers crossed the third time is lucky.
In the meantime, I'll enjoy some music and people watching. When I typed the title of this post a song instantly jumped into my head and is still playing, Whitesnake's Here I Go Again. Pin It

The second we were through the door he started telling me all the things he want to do - first up, ride the elevator. I've never been to this museum before - but he has so I thought we'd be taking the elevator up to some of the displays. Turns out it is just an elevator to classrooms and he just wanted to ride it for the sheer joy of riding an elevator.
Next up he started talking about the computers - it didn't take long until we found one and he settled in and tried to make the games and learning activities work, I think he'll do better when he can read. But man, has he mastered that mouse.
All in all, it was a great way to spend the morning and I can't wait to spend more one-on-one time with both of my favorite little ones.
I liked Jakob Dylan as part of the Wallflowers back in the day, but I really love his current solo work, including this one: "Nothing but the Whole Wide World to Gain."

Today is about getting back to real life, catching up at work and enjoying that extra hour of sunlight at the end of the day.
I think today calls for some Black Keys: Lonely Boy.
