My Trip to Kenya – Part 1of 3

My Trip to Kenya Part 1 I’ve wanted to visit the African Continent for as long as I can remember. I finally did earlier this month for two weeks. Right off the bat I have to say two weeks is not enough. I wanted to visit two countries Kenya and Tanzania. I ended up just…

Letting my Soul Shine

My niece gave me this journal for Christmas and I intend to follow her mandate. I’ve been looking forward to this day since April 2012. Initially I was supposed to go to the African continent for three months and planned on visiting three countries, but life happens and I’ll only be there for two weeks…

Dating and Religion (or the lack thereof)

Most of my writing lately has been very personal and maybe a little controversial so I’ve kept everything in my journal under wraps. However, I decided to share this piece. I feel like I’m putting myself out there naked by sharing this but somehow I don’t think I’m the only one who feels this way….

One of the things that really pisses me off

Excerpt from post that I highly agree with “The only problem with off the grid living is that corporations lose their ability to control others. With a completely self-sustaining life style, no body would ever have to work. What would happen then? Think about that for a moment. We would be free to expand and…

Inside her head

The life she has always wanted is hers for the taking. However there is an invisible string drawing her back to the life she wants to leave behind. Even as she basks in the freedom of having her time all to herself the string keeps tugging at her head, heart, and soul. Sometimes she wishes…

Grounded

If someone had said to me in January of this year that I’d be stationary for the remainder of the year I’d have laughed at them. However, here it is July 2014 and I’m grounded. I’ve planted a garden (already started reaping a harvest) and picking out furniture. I haven’t stopped traveling, I just won’t…

Change of Plans

At the end of my current trip, upon my return to the US of A I will be laying down roots for a while. I’ll still be traveling out of the country but only for short periods of time. I’m also going to take the opportunity to explore the state of Georgia. My sister N…

The best laid plans

I’m taking off tomorrow for 31 days to St. Martin and Guadeloupe. Looking forward to spending time at the beach (sun, fun, rum), enjoying the company of extended family, and hopefully making new friends. We are in the 4th month of 2014 and it’s looking like visiting the African continent which is number ten on…

Trusting the Universe

Even when it seems like the gods are conspiring against you the Universe is aligning things in your favor. If you go with the flow and take advantage of the opportunities which are placed in your path everything works out for the best in the end. I took a four nights/three days trip in February…

A New Year, Embracing Life, and Turning 50

I welcome 2014. I intended to post this at the beginning of the new year, however I never got around to it. Now, I’ve turned around and it’s already 21 January. I’ve already listed my goals and aspirations in an earlier blog enter so I won’t hash it out again here. I had a travel…
