I Guess I’ll Pack Up My Mind

For spring break 2017, I took my daughter Lana and her boyfriend Michael on vacation. Another long road trip to Florida... I thought about going to California, but that is WAYYY too long to drive, and airfare for three people was a ridiculous price. Florida has the nicest, clearest water within decent driving distance.  Besides, … Continue reading I Guess I’ll Pack Up My Mind

The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On

In recent months, I've been busier than a three-balled tomcat.  Not having as much fun as the tri-baller, though -- mostly work, work, work for me. It was time to take a much needed break. For the second year in a row, I was able to take my daughter away for a nice beach vacation.  … Continue reading The Tide Is High But I’m Holding On

After the … Continue reading But When She Stops Dancing, Her Mind Turns To The Sea
