**** Trigger warning****

On September 23, 2018 I wrote the following article for my blog. It was an emotional time for me. I didn't post it. Instead I sent it to a few online publications. Millions of articles went out to hundreds of print and web based news outlets. Mi...

Having a wingman or wingwoman as is the case for today, makes some things better. That was the experience this afternoon. It isn't my first tattoo which is why it didn't happen a few weeks ago, but it is still very significant. 

The back story, I made the original...

I got some interesting news this morning and I didn't have anyone to tell. Well I did but not the person who would understand why it meant so much to me.

Here's a little bit of back story...

As a young woman my mother and I spent a LOT of time watching series television...

Gone Fishing.

I have this new dilemma. I've been writing my 5th book which is all about the last 365 days.

Spoiler Alert!

I'm new at this... being 50.

I was quite an expert at those 40's and I banged out 49 like a champ. I learned a lot in the last 365 days and here's a sum up.

To be honest I’m a little exhausted. 

For my 365th experience I spent the day alone on Lake Geneva having my very first stand up paddle b...

One last creation

The final day of my 40's is almost here and I wanted to create a reminder that this last year was an accomplishment. I didn't do it alone but every single day changed me.

That change was made very clear today when I visited the eye doctor and he informe...

Condiments

It's been quite a journey. In the last year I've eaten so many new things and made food that I didn't want to eat. I have confirmed that I've got great instincts when it comes to the flavors that I like. Quite a few of the 365 day taste bud experiences were a...

Today I built a floating lantern. 

The base is made from sticks I cut in my yard and tied together with golden toned hemp rope. It's primitive and as I worked I couldn't help but think about the raft that saved Tom Hanks in Castaway. I'm not escaping from an island but...

It’s unbelievable that I'm down to my last 5 new experiences. I still have so many things on my list. 

Today I tried to do something I have never been able to achieve. 

Don’t laugh. 

For my 361st experience I learned how to whistle. 

This is some serious shit.

I f...
