Dream. Decide. Do.

If you have landed here, I welcome you, my fellow explorer-wanderer-wayfaring adventuring lover of life!

This place and space was created for you and me to journey together.

To take moments away from our busy lives just to “be”.

To experience new thoughts and new things together.

And then to be inspired to do the things that we often put off doing because we think we don’t have the time, there aren’t enough hours in the day or we get caught in the “I’m too busy” trap.

I’ve got much to share with you. From Musings to Random Treasures, from Songs of a Subway to Postcard Vignettes, I’ll regale you with stories, writing, photos, thoughts and experiences. Let the journey begin.

Wonder

Breathe deeply. Smile. Imagine the feelings of wonder and awe you once experienced as a child. Reconnect to those feelings. Be present. Be in this moment.

“Great is the human who has not lost his childlike heart.”

~ Mencius

Broken Pieces and Wabi-Sabi

By | Musings | 6 Comments

I collect antiques. I love things old and vintage, especially since they often express themselves in a wabi sabi way…perfection in imperfection.

I love the dents and nicks, marks and wear that vintage items possess.

I imagine what each piece might have experienced, endured and triumphed through.

I never lose pleasure in taking a closer look at a piece, feeling its texture and smiling at its imagined story.

The other day, when I was being quite mindless, I smacked one of my flow blue dishes to the floor accidentally, and CRASH!!!…it broke into bits.

Dear Mary

Marguerite and the Road Trip

By | Postcard Vignettes | 8 Comments

Whatever possessed me to think that Marguerite would be a perfect travel companion?

Although we’d known each other for years, we’d never travelled together, save for a few local car trips. She’d been perfectly fine then. Oh, there had been a bit of griping and moaning, but nothing I couldn’t handle. I would simply smile and try to change the subject. But changing the subject didn’t change things at all.

The Wrong Stop

By | Postcard Vignettes | 2 Comments

It was really quite comical. I was sound asleep despite the constant shifting movement of the train when all of a sudden there was a loud banging on the door of my berth. It took me a moment to get my bearings. Where was I again? Oh yes, somewhere en route to Thunder Cape.
