WIDE EYED AND FULL OF WONDER
It would be a merry Christmas indeed if under my Christmas tree I were to find a box with a subscription to this magazine. When I was little, one of the reasons I liked going to old people’s houses was because I thought they would have National Geographic. I kind of thought only they were ALLOWED to have it for some reason. Old people, doctors and libraries. And, there was this one lady, Miss Liz, who had a collection of NG, going back forever, all stored on one huge shelf. Can you imagine? All that yellow, just waiting to be explored? I’d rather sit there and look at those than watch TV (probably the same way I’d rather read them on the net now than watch TV). I remember one issue on pandas, and one on emeralds, and one on volcanoes, and sharks, and jellyfish, and India… Just now I remembered there’s a whole WEBSITE, too! Ah well…I don’t think I’ll ever be anything but that big ol’ nerd with the big ol’ glasses that took up my whole face, sitting in the corner reading my books about the earth. 😎 I mean, have you “been to” Africa lately?
