The Benefits of Going MIA

On January 28, 2013 By

So yeah, it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on this blog.  I needed a break.  A long one.

Right around the time of my last post, I was in one of those “What am I doing?” phases.  I was questioning my trip, my job, my passions, my next steps – basically everything.  I felt out of [...]

While I’m the one setting everything for my trip in motion, I’m thinking the Universe may have other ideas.  Would I love for my house to be sold?  You bet, but it’s not happening.  Would I love for my house to have a renter in ASAP?  You bet, [...]

Today’s photo(s) come from the Okefenokee Swamp.  A bit out of the way in a corner of southeastern Georgia, the Okenfenokee Swamp is a naturalist’s delight.  After reading a National Geographic book about it when I was in junior high, I was fascinated by the place and wanted to go see it.  I finally got my chance [...]

Happy Friday!  I’m excited for the weekend because my dad is coming to visit.  We’ll be chatting, BBQing and opening up a bottle of wine or two - all of which are fave ways of mine to spend a weekend.  Hope you enjoy the following posts from around the web!

1. If you’ve ever been through [...]

Who Knows What’s in Store? (photo courtesy of gutter lane/flickr creative commons)

Growing up, I was big into the Magic 8 Ball back in the ’80s.  After awhile, the prism inside would inevitably get stuck and give you the same answer no matter what question you asked it.  “All Signs Point to Yes” was [...]

Today’s photo is from Taos Pueblo and the cemetery there.  Taos Pueblo is the oldest continually inhabited pueblo in the US.  When I was in New Mexico on my quest to photograph the same places as Ansel Adams, I spent an afternoon here and wasn’t disappointed.  The cemetery was fascinatingly serene and made for a great setting against [...]

Life is Worth Celebrating – Your “Offer” is Too! (Photo courtesy of sirwiseowl – flickr creative commons)

Recently, I posted about my fears about leaving on my trip.  I’ve been thinking about them more and realize there’s something more to it than what’s [...]

This holiday week, and in the spirit of independence, I wanted to share some great posts about making your dreams happen and some reflections on happiness.  Happy weekend!

1. Searching for happiness in the “someday”?  Look at what you have in the moment to be truly happy writes Eric [...]

It never fails – everything happens all at once.  Amidst my crazy last few weeks, I got some news I wasn’t ready for and I’ve hurt my shoulder somehow so I’ve been jonesing for some good vibes and positive karma.   

When I get run down or stressed out, I rely on three easy exercises to feel [...]

Today’s photo is from a recent trip to Carmel and Big Sur, CA.  I love the Cali coast, but I hadn’t been to that area before (which is why I was super excited I was able to spend a weekend there between work trips!)  Pfeiffer State Park is a pretty popular destination, just south of Big Sur.  After parking along [...]
