“I’m so dizzy, my head is spinning. Like a whirlpool, it never ends . . .” Remember that old Tommy Roe song? Yeah, well, that’s been my theme song for almost a week now. I guess my allergies took the whole “party in my head” thing literally and decided to host a hoedown in my semi-circular canal. Whenever I go from sitting to lying or lying to sitting, or even if I just tilt my head wonky (and who doesn’t do that umpteen times a day?), I have to brace myself and take a little break until the walls find their proper positions again. It’s a bit trippy.

Oh, and speaking of “trippy,” the timing couldn’t be more jolly. Tomorrow I fly to Colorado for the sixth annual FDDDS+M (Father Daughter Daughter Daughter Son + Mom) ski trip. This is my dad’s baby–a chance to spend a long weekend skiing with his children sans spouses and grandkids. We always have a blast, and I’m sure this year will be just as fun–provided my eardrums don’t explode from pressure on the plane, and I don’t take a dive from the chairlift due to disorientation. Note to self: NO wonky head tilts while suspended in a chair swinging far above a steep mountain side.

So, I guess this means I’ll be taking a brief sabbatical from Croatia stories. But before I go, I want to leave you with one more set of photographs. In Dubrovnik our hotel faced west, and every evening God provided an original light show–sometimes subtle, sometimes stormy, sometimes spectacular. I hope you enjoy these images of sunset on the Adriatic Sea.

Good luck skiing (while dizzy!) The Croatia trip sounds absolutely amazing… I’m so glad you’re home, and the richness of your experiences will surely leak out in your writing for years to come!!
