New Name. New Site. Same Me.

“I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” ~ Jimmy Dean Cha-Cha-Changes Change while at times can be incredibly scary is something I tend to embrace and welcome. With the changing of seasons and whether, I tend to look at it as new beginnings. I re-evaluate where I am, ….

Wanderlusting: Coronado

“The ocean is a mighty harmonist.” ~ William Wordsworth Most Favorite-ist Place If I had to pick a favorite place in San Diego it would have to be Coronado.

Wanderlusting: Summer in The Concrete Jungle

“Aaah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends.” ~ Darell Hammond Summer has arrived in the Concrete Jungle I can finally say spring summer has arrived in New York! ….

I want to see growth in wood, time in stone, nature in a city, and I do not mean its parks but a deeper understanding that a city is nature too-the ground upon which it is built, the stone with which it is made.” ~ Andy Goldsworthy Tourism in ….

Wanderlusting: The Annual Marik Christmas Party

“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson My last major trip of the year is going to Vermont for my friends’ annual Christmas party which is held on the second weekend of December. While I always fly back to New Hampshire for Christmas, it really does NOT ….

Wanderlusting: Love Locks

“True love stories never have endings.” ~ Richard Bach Symbolism  Locks are symbolic for many reasons. They are solid, all but impermeable without a key. You have to make a concerted effort to break a lock, and even then it isn’t easy unless you have something like bolt cutters. And who walks around with those? Because of their impenetrable nature, ….

Wanderlusting: Pumpkin Picking

“When the seasons shift, even the subtle beginning, the scent of a promised change, I feel something stir inside me. Hopefulness? Gratitude? Openness? Whatever it is, it’s welcome.” ~ Kristin Armstrong  Where are you Autumn? (Why can’t I find thee?) To soon? Bonus points if you know what song I just quoted changed. While Autumn is taking the slow meandering ….
