These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

I'll get there, but I'm not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel yet.


  1. I didn't know you were going to Oaxaca! Lucky you! I love Oaxaca. What takes you there? Have you been there before? Enjoy your time in one of my most favorite places.

  2. Have a wonderful time!!!! Can't wait to hear all about it and see pictures of the Birthday girl.

  3. Have a wonderful time on your trip. I have no clue where this Oaxaca is, but I'm guessing you do not need directions from me. Ha. You must be getting some of the aweful heat your way., stay cool and enjoy the rain.

  4. RET, this is my first time! I am very excited! My DIL is from Oaxaca, and we are celebrating her Quinceanera!

    Caroline, there will certainly be pictures! Thanks!

    Dar, Oaxaca is in southern Mexico, and no, I don't need directions, as long as the pilot knows the way. I'll ask him before we take off. I don't usually get severe heat here, but it is pretty hot right now. And it looks like we will have showers every day in Oaxaca! If only it would come here, we are sooooo dry. And thanks, I will!

  5. Fellow blogger wishes you good luck traveling and have lots of fun ... Check

  6. Your trip does sound like fun. Enjoy yourself and the showers, lol.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
