The price of poker has gone up here in the housing market, at least what people are asking for their houses. I'm afraid the housing rush from CA to Bend was years ago. There was a house right by the State Parks in kind of a track home place that looked cool, had to wonder … Continue reading Floating & Houses, Bend
This has been the summer of the kitchen so far, my work day starts up again after I write this. Instead of writing this un-read blog, I did submit a few articles to AOPA magazine and Latitude 38 for sailing. Of course, haven't heard back from either. It takes awhile, they get a lot of … Continue reading Pacing myself
April is pretty packed, Arizona this weekend then back to Manhattan Beach the next. But first, I write... There's a house in Bend, Oregon that is within reach and is absolutely beautiful. Whenever I go through a town I like, I obsessively Zillow it to death to see if it's feasible. Bend seemed great, until … Continue reading Cat Lady
Not really, I did mean to get up early to catch the sunrise on the top of Mt. Diablo, that just didn't happen. The alarm went off at 6:30a, I had to tell Alexa twice to turn it off before I woke up at 7:30a. Another reason I'll never be a great photographer, I can't … Continue reading Snow Day!
Still nursing a bruised tailbone from my Tahoe trip, it's such a bummer!! Every time I feel good to go, something happens to disrupt my flow (or bum my high). At least it wasn't my back again, that takes me out for months. My truck is pretty much the only car that's comfortable at least, … Continue reading Where to live??
Despite being rainy and cold everywhere I've been and being publicly called out on FB as looking to move into a trailer. I covered a lot of ground this past few weeks, now I just need to get back into shape which was not even on my NYR list of things to do. I have … Continue reading So far, so good 2019
It's been pouring in LA all week, with no plans to get back to NorCal on my journey I figured the best thing to do is have an adventure and take the train back. I love trains, a friend of mine took 13 hours getting back over the Grapevine on I-5 - normally a 5 … Continue reading Stuck on a Train
9.4.18: Let your mind wander, and make sure to write down the peaks and valleys of your journey. You are exploring new mental territories, and they demand being recorded and shared. Take heart if you experience writer’s block. Slow down and pace yourself through your cerebral landscape. The words may not come quickly, but they will … Continue reading Horoscope for Today
Next stop, Bingo. Really though, I'm totally unmotivated and stuck with piano let alone not getting any better. It could be the pieces I'm playing are just way too hard for me? Lately I've been hacking away at Phantom of the Opera. When I was at my mom's house I thought I'd bring my book … Continue reading Piano Lessons
I haven't been to Manhattan Beach all summer, not that that's a big loss or I haven't been busy with other things. If I don't get out on the water sailing once a week, it's twice. MB seems like it's not "my town" anymore. I see all the FB pictures of people still looking awesome … Continue reading Heading “Home”
