Hiking Trip Part Three – Camp

So, I left you last time standing atop The Hill, vowing to conquer it one day with a full pack. I really mean that, too. and have taken steps to facilitate a return attack next year. But we went on to camp from there over a few more streams and finally around the bend to where the tent got pitched and the fire built. My partners, Rambo and Bucko,   wouldn’t let me do much. They have a process, they said. They put up the tent first, then built a fire in a fire-pit that I believe was created on a

Vacations: don’t forget the others

Vacations: don’t forget the others

Summer is here and everyone is traveling. At least, that is how it feels to me. Yes, this is a whiny, self-indulgent post about my life and how it is not turning out quite as I had so strangely prepared. If you do not want to read about my efforts at self-deprecation, you might want to click on the little “x” now. So…as I was saying before I rudely interrupted myself… Everyone is traveling to a vacation place. Some with kids, some with dogs, some with other baggage. I used to do that.

Life style reboot and wallpaper destruction

LIFESTYLE REBOOT — defined– “CHANGE” – and not just any old change either. It’s a big thing. It’s a life altering thing. It is the one thing that no one WANTS TO EVER DO.

You will go homeless and hungry if you don’t. Yes, it is that drastic. And (insert maniacal laughter) I am on this path at the

Well yes, I am looking forward to being a member of the panelists at Imaginarum 2015 this week. I am very excited (Don’t let this post fool you…I am thrilled!) and would love it if anyone in attendance who comes by to visit my table in the vendor hall wants to take pics with me. Okay – no denial- I am a photohound. I am also hoping you will make this con a part of your regular planned events every year. I believe it is going to be one of the most outstanding for 2015 and certainly for every year

Day 14- I am thrilled!!!!

Day 14 of my 25 Day Challenge… which you can find out more about here Today really ended up on a high note. I kept telling myself all day long that if I pushed a little harder, I would make it to my goal. I don’t know about you but positive self-talk works for me. I can psyche myself up and get the juices flowing until I am able to put out the effort it takes. So, that’s basically what I did. And it worked! (for editing anyway) I didn’t get any Writer Groupie work done, but I did get
