Knowing right from wrong.

I’m completely jonesing for Magnolia Bakery cupcakes.  (and apparently I’m not the only one in this house who is – just saying).  If we were in New York I’d already be down on Bleeker Street deciding between white cake and red velvet.  (oh heck I’d pick red velvet if it was available we all know…

NYC – photos

I have no belief that I can recapture our week long visit to New York City  and adequately blog about it. Chris took photos with his camera, I took photos with my camera, Chris took photos with my camera, and sometimes Strangers took photos with my camera.  I journaled on most days but some days…

Elemental

While Autumn has been quietly advancing I feel as if I have been rushing about and too busy to enjoy the beauty, the colors, the brisk air, and the wind.  But not for long.var gaJsHost = ((“https:” == document.location.protocol) ? “https://ssl.” : “http://www.”);document.write(unescape(“%3Cscript src=’” + gaJsHost + “google-analytics.com/ga.js’ type=’text/javascript’%3E%3C/script%3E”));var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker(“UA-xxxxxx-x”);pageTracker._trackPageview(); The wind –…

A few days ago we received an email from another Warm Showers traveler, Miguel from the northern region of Spain. Miguel arrived in New York in June and is planning to bicycle across the US to California, for starters. He…

Real Music

While the MTV generation is zoned out on what’s happening in LA, let me tell you about some good music – music with integrity. One of our favorite Oklahoma summer events happens this weekend. Woody Fest! Folkies and music lovers in general from across the country descend on the little town of Okemah, Oklahoma to…
