In the past I have marked the anniversary of my blog with a review of special moments from the past year.  While in the midst of the horrors and insanities of the year 2020 there have been heartwarming moments, particularly the life affirming support, love and compassion of family and dear friends which were critical in my survival of this past year’s storms, I think at this point however,  I don’t want to look back, but rather look forward.


For each thorn, there’s a rosebud… For each twilight – a dawn… For each itrial – the strength to carry on, For each storm cloud – a rainbow… For each shadow – the sun… For each parting – sweet memories when sorrow is done. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

I look forward to getting my turn to be inoculated against the Covid-19 virus but will remain patient as the timeline will undoubtedly see many hiccups and delays.  I have updated my wish list on future journeys and hope to soon shall them with you.

In the meantime I am continuing to take joy in the simple everyday activities – taking daily hikes with my cavapoo Vee, who at 7 months old  is a ball of fluff and unending energy.   I am also  loving every second spent with  my family and friends.  I also want to thank each and every one of you who not only read my blog but send comments.  I so appreciate your support and am so happy that you continue to enjoy my stories and photos.  I promise to do all I can to keep you entertained.

May you all stay well and safe

Here’s to the beginning of hopefully a purer, more glorious world.
