Travel: Beirut day dreams

A planet of song …

Mosque along the river in Mostar, Bosnia.

By Garrett Palm

I daydream a lot. Often these daydreams are of whole new worlds that I think I am creating. A while ago I had a reoccurring daydream where I took Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation to planets throughout the universe that I found fascinating.

I wandered down Main Street in Breckenridge around noon today and checked out some of the really good-looking work in progress on the snow sculptures. Judging is tomorrow, December 11, 2010. I’m looking forward to seeing the finished sculptures.
