Dare to Read

Every couple of year’s some scary statistics will appear on my radar that say things like X% of high school graduates never read another book again or X% of adults read less than one book a year.  And I think, how…. why?  I forget that not everyone’s idea of a perfect afternoon is being lost […]

Let’s Talk Digital Nomads

Well first, let’s define what it means to be a digital nomad? Like most things, you have to think about what it means to you.  And I have and I’ll share it with you.  So, the digital part means being electronically connected.  It’s difficult to disconnect completely these days and many wouldn’t want to even if […]

Dundee Girl asks…

Are we too caught up in the expectations of the season?  Dealing with… no that’s not the right words, muddling through a serious illness in the family this month has left me not only exhausted but so far behind my normal Christmas preparations that I can’t catch up. Will my family still have a great […]

The Coastal Redwoods – Day Two

This turned out to be my favorite day for Redwoods – the stretch from Cave Junction, Oregon down to the town of Klamath, California on the Pacific Ocean and the Klamath River.  Next time, I think I’ll spend a week right here. There are hiking trails for all levels, including those only requiring a few […]

Experience the Redwoods

I mean really, it’s what we went to the Pacific Northwest to see.  So many pictures, I just had to share them.  Words can’t describe the feeling, the smell, the silence of being among the Redwoods.  It must be similar to what it would feel like to be in space, looking back at earth, and […]

A Night in the Trees

Ideally, arrive before dark so you can explore the grounds before you have […]

Lunch With… Helen Reddy

People get asked that question a lot.  Who would you like to have lunch with?  And most people answer Oprah, the Pope, a President, Warren Buffett etc…  Nope, not me, my top pick right now with would be Helen Reddy. Why Helen Reddy? Yes, she has a fantastic voice and has been a performer, well […]

I have Akrasia. Who knew?

Yeah, Akrasia might be a fancy word for procrastination coined by ancient philosophers like Aristotle and Socrates but seriously, I buy presents. I buy cards. Why do I have such a difficult time getting them into the mail on time? I went to a wedding last Fall that I need to send a present for – […]

Wolves with Wi-Fi – Tattoos

Yep, the oldest wolf has branded himself.  Not once but three times and barely a year into his college adventure.  And he finally decided to tell his Mom – of course, his brothers (aka the other wolves) already knew. I’ve never been strongly drawn to having a tattoo nor do I dislike them.  I just […]
