Ignorance on display! 🙂 So, we are at the airport, getting ready for our great adventure. It’s about 6:00 AM and, as you can see, there are a lot of folks in the airport already. When I finally get up to a kiosk, I insert my card, find our reservation, and make my way through the “wizard”. When we I got to the point about baggage, it asked me how many bags. I indicated one per passenger. Click. Next screen…

Well, metaphorically speaking, a road. One can drive from Charlotte to Antigua, Guatemala, if one is willing to drive about 2700 miles. I prefer a quick flight. 🙂 As I’d mentioned in a previous post, I was taking my niece, Kayla, who had never been out of the country. Also, she’d never been on an airplane before.

I was reviewing some of the photos from the first half of this year and, compared to previous years, the number of photos that I’ve taken and the number of posts that I’ve made are declining. I think that this is kind of a normal thing. I did see a slight uptick for 2015, considering that I went to Guatemala, Europe, and India all in the same year. I had lots to talk about 🙂 Last year, I stayed in…

I used to meditate quit a bit, daily actually. However, of late, I’ve not been doing it and can feel, from time to time, a bit unsettled. Looks like it’s time to return to that and become an observer of my thoughts, again, rather than a participant. Thoughts are interesting things … they are that grand drama, that movie that plays out in your head, always seeking to take you away from the here and now and transport you to…
