NPM 29 / 30

Love is… doggy kisses in the morning wearing a face mask on a walk respecting mom’s hours blooms of a recently planted flower hand-drawn signs on a garage tree faces new music from an amazing songwriter bees buzzing in hazy sunshine warm concrete under bare feet water from hose dripping on toes calls from a…

When This is Over give me a crowded bar with a rockin’ band hittin’ all the high points bringin’ the people to pulse like the heartbeat of the music promising happiness, good vibes like everything is right in the world where the beer is cold as we press forward closer to each other to be part…

NPM 16 / 30

Started this one last night but didn’t finish it until this morning. No title yet. Will post another one later today. ~~ today is a friend’s birthday I probably haven’t spoken to her in close to 20 years I’ve never been able to pinpoint why maybe I wasn’t a good friend too focused on managing…

Always have a plan or, at least, have cookies

The day started well. Becky & I chatted a bit then said our farewells then I met up with Lindsay at Better Buzz in Hillcrest where I had a DELICIOUS breakfast sandwich & a YUMMY iced mocha. We had a wonderful conversation, I do love her so. After that, I wasn’t sure what to do….

After midnight

Just a quick post to say I’m in San Diego. I started with a visit to a friend’s music studio. It was my first time seeing it even though he’s been there 2 years already! Then I got to my friend’s house where I’m staying. We lounged & caught up then went to dinner at…

life so far + Escondido, Lady Brain Fest & Ugly Mug

Hi friends! I’ve almost been home now for as long as I was on the road. I’m in my 3rd week in my new (old) home in La Mirada CA. The first week was basically relaxing and recovering from my trip. It felt good and familiar to think of my mom’s house as the place…

Day 14 – Ann Arbor

Shortly before the kids went off to school, I made my way downstairs at Laurel’s house to see the fairly typical morning at her house. Then, Laurel & I had coffee and chatted. I took a shower, then we left for breakfast at Anna’s House which was really good. It wasn’t raining yet, so we…

Day 13 – Rochester to Ann Arbor via Niagara Falls & Canada

(writing this on Thursday about yesterday) I said goodbye to the little trailer (they call her Loretta) pretty early and headed out. I realized I could stop at Niagara Falls on my way out to Ann Arbor so I did. For breakfast I had what used to be my staple for road trips when I…
