Opening Of Show

Summer Reading
"It was hard to keep my feet still. A happy crowd of parents and grandparents held toddlers' hands as they bobbed in time to the music. Add the lush trees, blazing azaleas and deepening dusk, and it made for an enchanted hour."
--Naomi Lewin, on how her trip to Spain became defined by the passionate music of the region.

Postcard: The Bookseller
"Eventually he rose, leaving me with four of his favorite titles and the feeling there was more to life than making money. And, that he had found it, somewhere between a child's hopeful smile and the pages of Shakespeare's greatest works."
--Karin Muller, on a chance meeting with a Vietnamese beachcomber/Western book enthusiast who found joy in every new title that came his way.

Travel By Design: William A. McDonough
"Its funny: I thought I'd find a cheesy carnival, lots of video games and fast food joints -- all the wonderful things I remembered so clearly from when I was a kid replaced by cheap imitations."
--Elizabeth Yates McNamee, about to discover how her trip to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk will keep the memories of her childhood intact.

Local Station Break:

Well, in Poland...
"Before this trip, I wanted answers. I wanted understanding of what Poland is -- whatever that means. But you know, it's really not about some foreign country. It's not about me versus Poland, or Justine picking which one of us she wants in her life. It feels like were both winning now, you know?"
--Jonathan Mejivar, coming to the realization that where you come from is just as much a part of you as anything else in life.
