“The Road goes ever on and on Down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, And I must follow, if I can.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

Last week I took a much-needed holiday. When I was growing up, my family would get together every year and caravan to the desert and camp out together. So. Last week was my pilgrimage.

Who Am I?

I've had much going on, therefore many thoughts swimming 'round on what to write. I'm going to dither over what to say and give you the usual rubbish about the thoughts being all jammed up and not knowing where to start. So I might as well get that out of the way. *rolls eyes* I have so many thoughts, I don't know where to start. Here's a little mention on what's been going on in general with me.

“Just stop thinking, worrying, looking over your shoulder wondering, doubting, fearing, hurting… grinding, grinding, grinding away at yourself. Stop it and just DO!”

In 1960, artists Sol LeWitt and Eva Hesse met and became close friends. Five years later, Eva was struggling with creative block and self doubt, so turned to Sol with her quandary. I found his letter of response so inspirational and motivating, I have to post it here. This, I believe, not only applies to an artist with a block, but anyone who is struggling with the gamut of other obstacles life hurls our way.

Sneaky Card #1

Last night I went out with some friends for dinner and drinks. We started at one place where I had a happy little whiskey concoction with my meal. This place was a prime people-watching establishment.  Such a motley array of demograph and social categories. So we gave some of them background stories. It’s a fun […]

I’ve been listening to a lot of stand up comedy on Pandora lately. In the car. Between jobs. Today I was driving and listening to Tom Segura talk about his ordeal when trying to get a coffee at a coffee shop. He ends up getting coerced into ordering a “pussy drink”. I’m a Black Drip […]

Had lunch with my best friend yesterday. And how’s this for serendipity – we happen to share the same middle name. So she had to be the one I shared this card with: “Give this card to someone who shares your middle name.” She was just as excited about this whole idea as I am. […]

I went to a couple different coffee shops this weekend and played a couple more cards.  The first one was card #19,  “Hide this card somewhere it can be easily found.” I placed it under a pillow on a sofa. You’re welcome, random sitter.  The next day, I left number 24 a little further from […]

Sneaky Cards 13 and 4

Yesterday I met a friend at a coffee shop. He always makes me smile. The genuine Contribute-to-Your-Crows-Feet kinda smile. So I thought it so very fitting that he be the recipient of card number 13.  “Give this card to someone who makes you smile.” And it was such a feel-good, giving, smiling moment that we […]

I recently bought this game, Sneaky Cards, because I thought it would make my days a little more interesting and bring me out of my comfort zone sometimes. I like the idea of “play it forward”, involving strangers in a perpetual game and giving us all more of a sense of connection and community. Plus, […]

10 Things That Were Wrong With My First Cars and How Looking Back, It Wasn’t So Bad

When I was a teenager with a shiny new license to drive, I didn’t have the best of luck with the automobiles I got stuck with. No pick-up, noisy, smelly, tricky, hazardous, leaky, inoperative cars. But it's cool...
