Free flying


Oh my, my, how I had forgotten the joy to be found in driving – particularly driving a responsive, well-functioning vehicle where gauges and issues did not have to be monitored. It’s glorious. You feel one with the car. The radio playing classic sounds – The Cranberries, Aerosmith, The Beatles, Panic at the Disco, Plain…

Pack and Play


After almost two weeks of talking mainly to myself, plants, and inanimate objects, I need some socialization. Yes, an introvert just wrote that sentence. I too, am surprised. I’ve figured out that introversion is how I process the information I take in over time, but it doesn’t really define my personality type, now that my…

“I’m all alone, with no one beside me..”(Donkey in Shrek)


And so it goes! After traversing Arizona moving south and westward, I finally arrived at the RVing Nirvana known as Quartzsite, or “Q”, as one mountainside proclaims visually.

Looking Back Over My Shoulder -Humanities at (roughly) 450 mph


(Oooh, a fragmented lost in draft post, just found, from earlier this year) Now that was a catchier title than “Getting to know ¬†my fellow air travelers”, was it not? Feet firmly back on the ground from vacation, I’ve been in hibernation from over-socialization. It isn’t that anyone was rude or intentionally draining either. I…

Discovery


There is nothing quite so heady and energizing as the time of discovering a new person, learning what makes them the unique individual that they are. ¬†Some people are torrents, filling in all of the rich details in an open, exciting rush – emotional Instagrams if you will. ¬†Others let themselves develop their ¬†emotional shading…

A Way With Words


Did you notice ¬†there are two ways to read the title of this post? ¬†The difference is simply space. “She has, you know, quite a way with words.” I looked into his eyes and thought, “Away with words.” Words. ¬†With them you can paint a picture, engage in a debate, enrage someone, cut to the…
