For the Love of Cheese and Boats
Last weekend I spent a day at Cocoa Beach walking on a riverside harbor beside rows and rows of docked boats. I don't know much about boats, but since my co-captain on this day trip is a boat aficionado, I've been trying to learn more about them. I've ridde...

When You Want a Warm Place to Wait
The chalkboard at the park ranger’s station at the entrance gate announces that 371 manatees have been spotted today. I’m eager to see them. I've never been to Blue Spring Park on the St. Johns River, but I've heard that this is one of the best places to ca...

Tearing Off a New Page
It wasn’t until this third week of January that I realized I have six calendars for 2018. Five of them are at my office, and since I work in a cubicle it seems everywhere I turn I meet a calendar. It's a little hard to find space to display them all. I have...

Take the Twilight Tour
I’ve been on this boat tour around the lake maybe a dozen times or more. I’m here the day after Christmas and I’ve never seen it so crowded. Four boats are leaving the docks by the time we reach the ticket office and the last tour of the day is full. This s...

Rising from the Ruins
I knew there were ruins of an old sugar mill off the main road to the beach just an hour's drive from where I lived, but I’d never visited them. I'm not sure why I've missed this little piece of history in my own backyard since I'm quite intrigued by broken...

Finding the Divine in the Ordinary
Sometimes it’s hard to know if someone takes their job a little too seriously or if their disposition is just generally disgruntled. In the middle of a skinny street in Rome I encountered a woman who I think could have been a member of the pasta patrol. Or ...

Growing into Small
Fall is the season that gets me thinking that I'd like to grow a garden. Even though I live in a townhouse with no yard to speak of, and should face the stark truth that I’m not very attentive to the plants I currently have on my courtyard, I still wonder i...

Let the Hurricane Roar
I have an old copy of Rose Wilder Lane’s Let the Hurricane Roar  that I found at a vintage shop a few years ago. I had read it as a middle-schooler, thinking it would be similar to my beloved Little House books, but it was much more somber with the undercur...

I'm proud to announce that I’ve joined the ranks of e-readers. Thanks to your encouraging comments on my last post and recommendations on books and e-readers, {along with a timely email from Amazon with a special price} , I took the leap and bought a Kindle...

Literary Journeying
Almost every evening I watch jets taking off into the sunset. I live near an international airport and my neighborhood walking trail curves around the back of the runways. Sometimes I wish I were on one of those planes, flying to Italy or Paris or some othe...
