Holiday topics to share at our first meeting in late February (or earlier if you would like to add them to your webpage):
'One Moment, This Year' “Looking back on 2020, what single moment stands out for you? Whether it be loss, love, discovery or disappointment, share your unforgettable moment.”
‘A Love Letter to Travel’ "Write a love letter to travel about one place in the world that is special to you. It can be a popular tourist destination, or a place that’s largely overlooked. You might inspire someone else to go there one day, or to reconsider their assumptions, or to spark their inquisitiveness about a new piece of the world — all the empowering things that travel brings to our lives. (Some additional prompts to help you: How did this place change your perception about something? What do you wish more people understood about this destination? Did you have an experience there that couldn’t have happened anywhere else? What would you miss most if you couldn’t visit this place for a long time).
This topic was suggested recently by the New York Times... "while the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted global travel in unprecedented ways ...and we can’t know what lies ahead, we can still share the places we’ve loved, and continue to inspire curiosity, open-mindedness and awe for the wider world."
If you are thinking of joining ‘As Time Goes By’ next year, feel free to start writing on these topics ready for our first meeting in late February. All welcome.
