Post #120

October 26, 2021

Hi there!

Dennis Adams here. In my “HQ”, Dreaming Wide Awake!!

The number “120”, itself, has no special significance. It’s simply the 120th post I have written since 2014, when I started this site. But this post is not a typical post like I normally would write.

In this post, I want to give you some general information about the first 119 posts, which you may not know, and some tips which might make it easier for you to find certain posts, in case you ever want to go back and re-read any of them.

So it’s kind of a “reference post” to help you navigate through the site. And I decided to name it that way because it’s an even number and perhaps, easy to remember, if you want to refer to it again and again.

“Best Trip Ever” (SEA-KEF-CDG-BUD-VIE-ZRH-KEF-SEA)

May 1, 2018

Three weeks ago, I was gratefully and gleefully heading to four cities in Europe, for an eleven-day stay.

Lizz Wright was progressing through her 2018 European Tour to promote her new CD, “Grace”, and of course, to build her fan base.

I wanted to go to the segment of the tour which included Paris, Budapest, Vienna and Zurich. I had front row tickets to see and hear her in each of those four cities. I also wanted to be “bask‘ing in the sun”  (i.e. basket balling in the sun) in each of those cities. I always use the satellite image on Google to find a court that looks ok and is near the venue so I can usually walk to it. I wanted to walk the cities with camera in hand. I wanted to try foods which I’d never had before. I wanted to see and do a few other things if time would allow.

For four years now I’ve been traveling to see and hear Lizz sing. I’ve enjoyed each trip very much. This was my most complex trip, logistically speaking.

I thought it would be my best trip ever.

Lizz sang beautifully, much to the delight and enjoyment of the fans.

Old Landmarks

March 2, 2015

Leaving Seattle, heading east to Asheville, N.C.

Taking Off For A Three-Day Trip

As the plane took to the skies at 6 a.m.,  on Tuesday (Feb. 24) morning, from Seattle, Washington, I leaned forward slightly to peer out the window from my seat.

I’ve always liked sitting by the window, not only to transform my body into the shape of a crescent moon, but to take in the view, and try to identify familiar buildings, sites and old landmarks along the way.

I was headed to Asheville, North Carolina, for an Excellent Adventure!
