Wow. What a long strange trip it has been, as the Grateful Dead said. I actually have been up and writing for a month or so now, but I haven’t been able to log into my account here. Magically, I tried again a moment ago, using the same password I had previously tried, and this time, it worked. Whaddya know!?
I have been craving an update like you would not believe! Firstly, during my absence, my blog turned ONE YEARS OLD! Wahoo! I would come down on myself more for not maintaining a constant presence on here, and not having more followers, but I can’t very well blame myself for being the victim of an accident, and recovering from surgery. The ONE YEAR mark for the accident has passed as well. Believe me, that day was well remembered through a celebration of life party amongst the friends who have supported me through all my challenges. But, I do apologize to my readers for the silence, and hope that you will continue to be interested in my blog.
In the past month, I have been fortunate to travel to multiple destinations. I traveled to Mexico (where I celebrated my birthday!), the U.S. and British Virgin Islands (which had served as my light and dream at the end of the dark tunnel of pain post-accident), and took a short jaunt to Mammoth Lakes and Yosemite, CA.
My travel pieces have all been written, so that I could take part in Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in July, which means my readers can look forward to consistent posts! Each piece has a different tone. Some are more geared towards a hotel or destination review, some are more lifestyle pieces, and some have a more narrative flow to them.
I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have. I am so grateful to be alive, and to have the continued opportunity to create, love and explore!
