Man, oh man, if I didn’t have a hundred million things going on, I’d totally sign up!!!

That is my Writer Wish.

How about you? What does your writer self wish for?

  7. I would love to be able to afford a trip to Greece. But, I’m not excited about all of the political and economic unrest that is plaguing that country right now. It’s pretty terrible over there according to the news as “austerity measures” are choking everyone. They have 20% unemployment!

      Michael, the news blows the whole thing out of proportion. Believe me. I live here๐Ÿ™‚ Plus those riots you see on TV? They make it look like the whole country is going up in smoke, when in actual fact it’s just a really small area in the center of town, which is easily avoidable. Also, that’s in Athens, not on the small quiet island of Ithaca … which, by the way, relies on tourists to live!๐Ÿ™‚ So your visit would benefit our economy, yes?๐Ÿ™‚ Please don’t be afraid of Greece because of the horrid media terrorism going on. It’s NOTHING like they show on TV.
