sunset Our crooked campsite at Joyful Journey. It didn’t look so bad when we were setting up, but the wedged backpack next to the hubster’s sleeping bag to keep him from rolling down hill confirmed otherwise. Moving, keeping still, exposing what I can’t see. This was Juniper’s first camping trip

This fire hydrant is just around the corner from our house, emblazoned, delight of delights, with Portland’s area code. The area code which, nearly three years after moving, I have yet to change. The first time I saw it, I took it as a positive sign – a reminder that everything I am and ever […]

Hi from Rick, Greg, Colleen, and Chris at the Integratron and part one of the California leg of our epic road trip. The hubster and I got up early, early, early in Bisbee to make it here in time, and did, but only by the skin of our teeth and maybe disobeying a speed limit or […] The post

Driving north Friday afternoon, May 19th. May 19th, snowy Colorado cold, my heart cratered and crushed, Chris Cornell dead and gone, and me and the hubster with tickets to a Soundgarden show that will never come to be.
