Always best in slow motion

So, I feel a mild case of the winter doldrums coming on.  Always happens when the time changes.  It's amazing how we rely on sunlight.  How do the people who live above the arctic circle do it?

In two days I'm whisking my almost 10-year old (going on 15) son off a European jaunt.  Will he ever appreciate how lucky he is?  A one week introduction to London with a one night stay in Paris (via chunnel, of course).  I'm terribly excited.  This is one of the best reasons to live vicariously through your child.  What an amazing feeling it must be:  to be a traveler so young and to experience a completely different culture.  I believe that it's essential for my kids to do this while they're growing up.  It's a requirement, from my point of view.  It makes them better citizens of the world.

Also, this may be my precious-only mother-son trip for a very long time, if not forever.  I want to savor each moment like chocolate cheesecake.
