    Each year, I've watched this globe grow increasingly obsolete. It's political and educational value's been mostly replaced by an aesthetic one. There's a lesson in that, somewhere. Don't you think?

      It's funny how the borders between countries blur in areas where there is peace. (Like saying, "I'm going to South America!" instead of singling out Peru.) But they resolve with startling clarity when there is war or a crisis in a country, and suddenly you go to your globe/map and figure out where exactly is Rwanda or Afghanistan. I choose to look at it this way: every new border implies brand new adventures! J

      Jason, that's a great way to think of it!

      I have a "thing" for globes, but they take up too much room!

      Don't they look so cool lined in a row - big and miniature ones together? I've seen that in magazine spreads before.
