Discovery at the Virginia Living Museum

Once in a while, in life you have these Ah Ha moments where you need to stop and just take something in for a bit. I had one of these last week on a gorgeous spring day at the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News, Virginia. It’s less than an hour’s drive from either Williamsburg […]

My Love Affair With The Oregon Coast (Newport, Oregon)

There is a place where I feel completely at peace and energized all at the same time. A place where the crisp, cool wind is a constant reminder of the force that is the Pacific Ocean. The seagulls and colorful houses yards away from the delightful sandy beach are quiet and quaint. The seafood is beyond description.

The place is Newport, Oregon and one of my favorite destinations to dwell and discover.

Christmas Town Busch Gardens

Christmas Town at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Virginia 2016

The article points to a study by Deloitte that claims Americans look at their smartphones more than 9 billion times daily. Seriously? First, I can recognize a […]

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2016

Goodbye and Good Riddance 2016

I know, I know. Everyone is saying how 2016 was a bad year and they can’t wait for it to be over, blah blah blah. ‘Suck it up buttercup,” is usually my go-to thought on this. That is, unless you’ve experienced a great loss. Like most humans who inhabit this earth, at the age of […]

My Word Is My Bond

After a very satisfying Saturday morning run, I made quietly my way inside and headed for my shower. I was now ready to think about everyone else. During my runs, I focus on myself, listen to a couple of podcasts and plan out my day. I basically visualize myself as Brain with plans for total […]
