Longing for Home

Since I haven’t had a home of my own for three years, I have adapted to this nomadic lifestyle. Whether it’s in a hotel room, AirBnB, or one of my host’s homes, I can “feel at home” rather quickly. It’s been essential, really. Otherwise, I would always feel out of sorts, like I didn’t belong…

It’s A Magnificent Life

It’s been like two months since I posted. I know…but I have a good excuse! I’ve been traveling and living so fully (most of that time). In no particular order, here are just a few things I’ve done in the past nine weeks instead of posting blogs, in pictures:

Watercolor My World

Although I majored in Art in College before I majored in Drama, Psychology, and finally English, I never learned to watercolor. Most of my training and experience is in acrylics, so I’ve taken it upon myself to learn how to watercolor. Here are a few of my recent watercolor postcards. Much to my delight, I asked…

Stay Left, Hug Right: Driving in the UK

  If you want to venture outside of the cities and towns, you might need to rent a car. There are coach tours that take you around, which are a great way to see the country’s main attractions, but if you crave more independence and solitude, you can hire a car.  The first time I drove…

Major Changes in the Autumn of Life

The past five years have been the most difficult of my life. The person I was in 2010 is dead, but it was a slow, agonizing death brought about by deceptions, betrayals, and even sexual assault. Just when I thought I couldn’t lose anymore, after having lost my community, my faith, my job, my home,…

Elimination Diet: Days 1 & 2

About two months ago, I started really looking into my diet and seeing what I could do to minimize some chronic health issues. This all was soon before I was leaving for England for six weeks, so it was mostly experimentation with some new recipes and tracking GI activity, mood swings, and energy levels. Through…

Original Source Excerpt: (Reuters) – It’s no secret that good storytelling involves characters who are in opposition to generate controversy — but author…

Mind the Gap…in Service

After leaving Cabourg in Normandy where my transportation was limited and dependent on my friend, I was really looking forward to being alone in London where I could continue my work of regaining my balance and be able to get around on my own. FAT CHANCE. Well, I exaggerate. I can get around here, but…

Rocky Start in the UK

After all the planning and hopes and dreams of all that a European working vacation might bring, one is rarely prepared for what reality has in store. I arrived in London on Thursday, July 7th. Exhausted. After twenty hours of straight travel and with four more to go, my stress was rapidly reaching it’s limit….
