Ragnfrid tells about his Viking journey at VikingsAlive, Stockholm, Sweden

“TELLING ABOUT IT” – A WEBSITE BY DIANNE J.

This website is the place where I share some of my experiences, thoughts, feelings, random musings, and occasional snarky comments during an extended journey to Europe in 2018.

One of the departure gifts I received was a handwritten note from my son. He was passing along to me a nugget of wisdom that he had received upon his departure for a year abroad. A world-wise friend had enclosed the following quote, from poet Mary Oliver, in his Bon Voyage card. And now, I pass it along to you.

Instructions for living a life:
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.

Embracing this strategy keeps me grounded and grateful. This blog is my “step three”. Thanks for listening!
