lets go to jersey

IMG_0104While Jersey has gotten a few shout-outs in my webland pocket, I’ve never impulsively jumped a bus there. Not until yesterday…

That’s right blog tribe, I bussed it to Jersey yesterday. Why? Exactly.

Sometimes things just happen.

The bus adventure was entertaining. First I went to Penn Station instead of Port Authority. I think the whole “P” word / west side thing scrambled my brains a bit. Fortunately, I was still listening to Allen Stone with a backpack of notebooks and ink – so I wasn’t tooo bothered with the wander between stations. Continue reading

R.I.P Syliva Browne.

While I was running around Colorado last week, I learned of Sylvia Browne’s passing on 20 November, eleven days ago.IMG_1613

I’m here… I’m here!!

Namaste cult of all things blogish!!

I arrived in Arizona this morning after an intense over sleep and near flight miss. Because of beautiful Manhattan creatures keeping me occupied and out very late, my fate landed in the hands of an enthusiastic cabby more than happy to zoom me to JFK at 100 m/p/h.

I made it!! Continue reading
