I am now on vacation.
Above is a picture I took last year of Cincinnati, Ohio. Cincinnati is again my destination on the upcoming trip.
Here are my vacation objectives---
1. Visit mom & have good trip with wife. 2. See longtime friends. 3. See fabulous Cincinnati & thank my stars again I'm a 47 year old midwestern punk rocker. 4. Use down time to consider ways to best communicate my view of a complete life as being effort to make good use of each day, maintaining longterm relationships, having well-considered political and social views & having good mental and internal life that is yours alone. 5. Read books I'm bringing about George Washington and Tecumseh and ponder early America. 6. Call my dad's sister Mary and his brother Tom in Rhode Island over Fourth holiday. 7. Look at Earth below from airplane & wonder what people down there are doing. 8. Take some walks. 9. Stay out late at least a few nights. 10. Follow baseball season as normal. 11. Tell my nephew Thomas he should stop briefly and visit in Cincinnati on drive from Indiana to R.I. because seeing me is useful example of how not to live when older. 12. Remind all to read NeilAquino.com as often as possible and to pass the link on to others.
