serendipity

Have you ever told yourself that the thing you wish most for in life is too far fetched to ever become reality? Have you wondered if you are sitting still, getting older, just watching life go by without you being an active participant? Have you ever struggled to silence that very loud voice in your […]

Toothpaste Pants

“I have toothpaste on my pants.” I looked up from my squat position in the driveway where I was saying hello to my friend Ole’s two exuberant little dogs, Ziggy and Perdy, who had just jumped out of her car and were running in euphoric circles around me. “I need a washcloth right away,” exclaimed […]

One of the many gifts the road has sent my way is a friendship with an inspiring woman named Carlyn Shaw.  We were introduced through an equally inspiring woman, Shanti, whom I met on my road trip in Boise, Idaho.  Although Carlyn and I have yet to meet in person, through social media, e-mails and […]

Sometimes an experience touches you deeply, where you know you are witnessing something profound and important, but you don’t know exactly what it is. That is what happened to me today.

One year ago today I plastered a decade old Post-it Note to Princess’ dashboard with duct tape.  The Post-it Note read “I Welcome Change.”  I stared at these words realizing I had been seeking change […]

I usually don’t like to blog out of order, but right now I’m compelled to share what’s going on.  So, you’ll have to wait to hear about some of my unique and unexpected Arizona road trip adventures.  For now, I want to tell you about my journey back to Santa Monica.  After 5 months on […]

One of the most rewarding parts of my road trip has been meeting new people.  By traveling alone without an itinerary for 4 months now, I’ve found that conversations with strangers and new friends often point me to the next road on which Princess, Yoda and I travel.  These conversations take place anywhere from a […]

Yes, I was a sourpuss of colossal proportions. I really was. But seriously, being stranded in Ozona, Texas was like bathing in a big ol’ rotting sour lemon. I swear my fingers are still puckered from the acerbic soak. I think my problem with the town is that it is pretending to be something bigger […]

When I left Santa Monica on my road trip in October, 2010, I felt completely alone.  I felt like I was the only person in the world going through an existential crisis.  Having had the realization that I didn’t like who I was and I didn’t like where I had found myself in life, I […]
