Ever Changing World

And so here we are, up to our eyeballs and ear canals in a virus pandemic. And here I am, currently at 8700 feet above sea level in the mountains of Colorado. During the fulfillment of my duties, I spent hours today driving. I covered a myriad of terrain, weather and sights. I have been…

Time to Chime In

Right now, as I type this, the world is freaking out as a new virus takes hold. Social media has, once again, changed the way we receive information. Hell, it has changed the way we react, too. It literally has changed everything.  I have debated if or when or what to write during this time…

Here is a Thing

I currently struggle with too much free time. Too much time that is not scheduled or committed or filled. I currently have nothing that I have to do. I struggle with time that does not tell me what I am supposed to do or when or how. Open ended, hours and hours of time. I…

What Comes Next

It has been over a year since I started the process of rearranging my life. It has been a year since I started selling most of my belongings and exactly one year since I quite my job. I am quickly approaching the one year mark of the sale of my house and leaving what was…

Bubbles in a Jet Tub

I was instructed not to use bubble bath if I was going to turn on the jets in the tub. That was logical, as I can see the bubbles going all crazy and filling the bathroom. This caution for my bath made sense, until it didn’t. Until there’s a perfectly good reason to use the…

Reality. Check!

I have literally had the time of my life these last ten or so months. I have seen and heard and compiled more experiences that have filled me up more than anything else in my entire life so far. I completed all the goals I had for myself. I saw most of the people I…

That Social Media Life

Social media has changed the world. Literally changed the way we act, interact, share and engage with the entire planet. That is pretty amazing and we, as the human race, were ill equipped for this endeavor. Our global society, in fact, is still struggling with the management of such a deluge of information, interaction, engagement…

Coming Home (?)

The signs became more familiar. I started to recognize cities, highways, byways, and knew exactly where to go without a map. I was headed back to the place where I started. I was headed home… or was I? I have written a lot about this concept of home. Technically, I do not have one. I…

Exploring Libation

It is no secret that I am a drinker. I have an entire section on this web site devoted to my tasting adventures. I am primarily a beer girl, like down to the bone, but I am open to drink, discuss and learn about any alcohol that is out there. I recognize that most towns…

Not as Planned

I am sitting in a real bed in a real motel in Alpine, Texas. It is the second to last day of the year and I still do not know where I will be to ring in the New Year, let alone where I will lay my head tomorrow. This was, after all, not my…
