Photo: Wind Chimes in the Storm

I love the moments right before a thunderstorm. I love the smell of the rain and the feel of the cool wind. Our weather in New Jersey has been interesting and unusual. We have moved from 80 degree days in December to single digit temperatures in April. This thunderstorm seemed so normal…and peaceful.

Travel Throw Back (TB): Roman Baths, Bath England

I could just imagine the fun the “Wife of Bath” had during her pilgrimage.

I remember reading Chaucer’s Tales when I was an English Major at Douglass College. I had always loved British television (thanks daddy). Traveling to Great Britain had been a dream since I was 18 years old. The MTV British Invasion during the 80s, when I was in high school, was my inspirational soundtrack. This picture was taken during my first visit in 2004 during the first of my three visits. I love the peace and serenity of the green water.
