Voted yesterday, Nov 3…traveling all day on Election day Nov 8.

 

While i was voting yesterday, a text came in…

“Do you want to go on a Disney Cruise for Thanksgiving?”

Twist my arm, right?

Hours later the text said we’re good to go.

Happy 45th Birthday Walt Disney World

Sanibel Island Pinocchio's Ice Cream
It took 32 visits before we discovered Pinocchio’s ice cream. Life IS cool.

 

Sanibel Island Pinocchio's Ice Cream
A Disney-style trash can?

 

Sanibel Island Pinocchio's Ice Cream
Sanibel Island Pinocchio’s Ice Cream parlor literally had a line out the door.

 

People always ask, “Where do you go for vacation?”

Answer, “Sanibel Island, Glacier National Park, and home to Pennsylvania are the annual destinations.”

A non-Disney “Disney day”

Disney Speaker
McDonalds is open 24 hours a day.

 

Disney Speaker
Needed a wifi network that could handle a simple process – downloading photos to iCloud. Note the 4:46am at the top?

 

Disney Speaker
Starbucks was much closer (than McD’s) to Disney’s Grand Californian Resort.

 

Disney Speaker
The Disney Star Wars 10k began at 5:30am.

 

Disney Speaker
Arrived at Starbucks in the dark before 5am. Left at 7:15am (and daylight).

 

Writing five daily, differently-themed posts would be so much quicker and easier if it weren’t for my desire to add photos to help tell the story.

Photos are evidence that something happened the way it was written.

Without the photos, many writers default to, “Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.”

i literally despise that premise.

Being inside the storytelling (professional speaking) arena for 16+ years, i’m here to tell you it’s rampant. And i believe it’s criminal – the antithesis of building trust and offering hope.

The juxtoposition is stunning

Mitchell's Sandcastles Breakers Cabin
Before sunrise yesterday getting ready for 8am departure for WDW.

 

From a cottage on Florida’s Sanibel Island to a cabin in Montana’s Glacier National Park, within 48 hours.

The juxtaposition is stunning.

From one beautiful place to another.

Same thing happens in life except it’s roughly 48 years between the juxtaposition of youth and middle age.

Stunningly beautiful?
