Mental Travel [Mar. 13th, 2018|12:25 pm]
Tony Grist
I've done a lot of jigsaws this winter. I started off with maps and moved on to landscapes. I'm not saying it's a substitute for travel- though perhaps in a very limited way it is because I've spent a long, long time gazing at a river in Alaska with the Northern lights dancing in the sky, Mont St Michel in Brittany and the bridges over the Moldau in central Prague. And now I'm viewing a park in downtown Cuzco. It's extraordinarily unlikely that I'll ever visit Cuzco in the flesh but if I did there's a little section of it I'd feel right at home in. Cuzco is beautiful- or at least my corner of it is- with the lower slopes of the forested hills stacked with tier after tier of adobe wall and orange tile.

we used to set up a jigsaw puzzle on the table in the back room at camp and work at it. One summer Mom and I did one that encompassed the Adirondack Region. It was amazing how many places were named 'Long Pond' and how many duplicate names of rivers there were.

Argues a certain lack of imagination among the pioneers.

When I was a kid I loved doing puzzles with pictures of what I thought were exotic places. Little did I know that I'd end up living in one of them. For some reason, my parents had a puzzle with Seville's Giralda on it and I thought its Moorish architecture looked so lacy and beautiful. I still do though I live almost in its shadow.

I've always liked jigsaws. When I was a kid we used to take one on holiday with us for
rainy days.

Yes...I have loved jigsaws all my life. They are good for rainy days and also for relaxing.
