So, as some of you know, I’ve been working with a teacher, Vidal, who lives in Guatemala. Over the four years that we’ve been working together, he’s become my very good friend, like a brother, actually. Naturally, when I go to Guatemala, I want to see him, hang out with him. And, so it was on Saturday, July 1st. We decided to meet, the 3 of us: Vidal, Kayla, and myself. We met near the market and headed for a…

No. Not like Colorado Rocky Mountain “high”, but a few feet above ground level 🙂 On Sunday, I went with a group on a hike in Crowder’s Mountain State Park. I’d been there a few times before. It was a great day to be out and about, walking through the woods and up the mountain. There were 10 of us, 8 women, 2 men.

So, Tom, Don Brown, another one of our photographer buddies, and I got together, boarded the train, and set off…

So, there I was, after work, minding my own business. Y’all know how I do! 😀 I was walking across the street and towards the boardwalk for a little quiet time, gazing at Lower Manhattan, waiting for the crowds to die down a little bit in the subway. From my left, I heard: Hey! Don’t forget to smile! I told her, no worries, it’s all good. I just finished the day and am headed for a bit of quiet time…

This post has been rolling around in my head for a while, but never found its way out. Then, today, I read Tom’s excellent post entitled: But, it’s on sale!. In his post he talks about marketing and buying more stuff, but he also talks about his, and his wife’s efforts to downsize. While I was in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I met a couple, Will & Karen. They were taking beginning Spanish. During our breaks, and sometimes after…
