The beginning of a new beginning

December 28, 2016 ~ Wednesday 7:45a Morning Pages ~ Appalachian Coffee Co., Brevard, NC I had a “late” start this morning. I was up talking with Edward until well after midnight, and I slept until about 6:30a. I don’t feel half bad either. I…

December 27, 2016 ~ Tuesday 5a Morning Pages ~ Avery Creek Camp, Brevard, North Carolina My #walkabout #roadtrip is concluded. What’s left for today and tomorrow are the reflections. Instead of taking the trip in two parts over two days, I decided to drive…

Walkabout: Day 64, Vulture comes to call

Walkabout: Day 60, A chance to practice forgiveness

December 18, 2016 ~ Sunday 7:15a Morning Pages ~ Blue Cypress Lake, FL The Universe gave me the opportunity to practice forgiveness yesterday. I was sure to avoid Wanda, Larry, Kathy, and especially Becky at the funeral service. I assume all of them played…

Walkabout: Day 59, Another puzzle to solve

December 17, 2016 ~ Saturday 5:30a Morning Pages ~ Blue Cypress Lake, FL I have been hearing strange noises in my tent for about the last hour and a half. It sounded like a small animal was walking in or pecking at my tent….

Walkabout: Day 58, Orange sun in a low arc

December 16, 2016 ~ Friday 7:15a Morning Pages ~ Blue Cypress Lake, Florida Well, I attempted to be the rescuer, but I was fortunate enough to have the kids decline. (Every time I call them “the kids” I think of Rob’s Mom. She always…
