Three years ago, before I started blogging -- I cannot believe that I haven't been doing this for decades -- my dad and I took a trip to Fiji and New Zealand with his alumni group from USC.
On our way west, we spent several days as guests of my father's friend at his home in Rancho Mirage. Tony, who had recently returned from a trip to Egypt, could not have been more gracious.
I intended to come home from our vacation and put together a little gift for Tony using photographs from his trip . . .
Except I didn't.
It took me three years to get around to this project. And it will be the most overdue 'thank-you' a person has ever received. I'm pretty sure of that.
Anyway . . . this little Egyptian cigarette tin holds a small coptic-bound book that is filled with Tony's photos and room to record his thoughts about the trip. I just hope he remembers the details after so long!
This is another glimpse of the round robin I've been working on.
Mandalas. That's the theme.
