When you get home from a trip, sometimes you slowly, slowly empty your suitcases as if a part of you doesn’t want to admit that the trip is over. It’s a thankless task as you have to decide what to keep as a treasure, a memory, or what would be better left thrown away. This decision is especially difficult after a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, especially if it dares to have the name “Disneyland” printed someplace on it.
That is where I am right now, doing my best to get back to normal life. Just look at last week on the site! To prove everything is back I wrote two articles on the art of writing. Two!
(By the way the art of writing is something I worked hard at NOT thinking about when I was on the trip.)
So… now that I am home and the suitcases are empty, as a final little bit of goodbye to that time, I thought I would share the links to some of the articles I have written on Walt’s park below. After this I am going to take a break from the mouse and Fantasyland (even though normal life can sometimes feel so boring without rides and jungle cruises). I hope you enjoy them.
- Walt and Me. My first article on the park.
- Learning to Share Disneyland. My thoughts preparing for the trip.
- Six Thoughts on Disneyland. My first post about the trip to the park. Some of my observations from the trip.
- Disneyland’s Silent Gift. My last post on the park, and easily my favorite.
