September 11, 2010 – the first piece of luggage.

Seemed an appropriate day.

I love travel.

A few years ago, when I went to Africa; I ran across an old Maasi proverb,

“Eyes that travel…see.”

That statement recognizes how I feel about travel. It keeps us worldly, open-minded, and vibrant. I love seeing new places, meeting new people, trying new food, having new experiences.

Over the years, I’ve picked up several pieces of luggage that I no longer have need for.

I found the perfect use for the one above. I used it quite extensively as I transported my wine collection bottle by bottle to big D. I would carefully wrap each bottle in a t-shirt (see a theme developing here?), and check the bag from Seattle to Dallas.

Never broke a bottle.

At the same time, luggage is a bit of an addiction for me. It’s a great “stuff for stuff” category. I have SO many pieces of it – that today…a day I refuse the shorthand on, and only refer to as “the day the World Trade Center was attacked” — seemed an appropriate day to give it away.

Enjoy the day folks – get out there, experience things, and enjoy life.

In other words,
