  •  you still can. . . (8+ / 0-)

    show your child what you saw, surelyujest, simply by relating the stories through your eyes and memories and enhanced by imagery. What you just wrote would be more than ample to keep your child's interest, or anyone else's, because YOU WERE THERE. You lived and did what you say. Indeed, why not write a diary and share this info with the rest of us maintaining the front or back lines of our great Daily Kos community? Why not, indeed!

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

    •  Well, you are so right about sharing stories (8+ / 0-)

      about our lives with our kids (and we all know how they hang on our every word about "when we were young"  LOL!)  Nah, mine would like it much better to actually see it, and I would love it too.
      About writing diaries...I was wondering if the travel diaries are yours alone or are you starting a group?  Is this a site wide invite to share our travel stories?  I do like to write about MI and have written diaries about some of the things I love about it w/pics.  I'd love to write a diary and share pics from my trip a couple of months ago to the Upper Peninsula (Whitefish Point, Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum, Hiawatha National Forest, Tahquamenon Falls) / Mackinac Island/Mackinaw City/  Mackinac Bridge/Wilderness State Park/The Straights of Mackinaw.  I have so many photographs of such gorgeous fall views here if anyone has an interest in them.  And some cool history, too.  But...none of mine are nearly as breathtaking as yours are in this diary--I'm afraid I might bore you.

        if you haven't done so already. When I write diaries, I usually post through the Backyard Science group; that gives me a built-in audience.

        My stories tend to combine my forestry work with my travels. Here's an example from last fall, just to give you an idea...Idaho photo diary

        Your photos don't have to be as spectacular as richholtzin's. You just need to tell a good story. At any given time, there will be a certain number Kos readers ready to click on a story that does not involve politics.
