Updates, Excuses and Things that Make me Happy

Posted on



What have I been up to? That is a good question.

It’s been so long since I’ve logged in that I had to look at my password book to remember what my WordPress password.  Fortunately I haven’t been up to just nothing that may just be an excuse for not blogging but, I’m having fun.

Check out what I’ve been up to:

Aerial at Night Flight 3 times per week.  This is fun and challenging I could probably devote a blog specifically to aerial.

Tarot intensive with Veronica Varlow.

Memoir writing with Creative Writing Now. Just  two days before I signed up for this course I had a dream that I was at the goodwill buying back all my old written in journals. Apparently, they were now important. For some reason had taken my journals to Goodwill and they had accepted (but that part wasn’t in the dream). It took me to the end of the week to put the two together

I’m just about to start the 99 Astro Hacks. It starts on August 11.

30 day body weight challenge with The Betty Rocker!  I was invited by a facebook friend to join and several of us did the 30 day challenge together.

Now I’m doing Barre 3 online several times per week.  This is cool because you can do it from home and it requires few if any props.  They also have 10, 30, 40 and 60 minute workouts.  There are a ton of options!


I drew a tarot deck all 78 cards.  This was such a fun project.

Took a long weekend in January to San Francisco, ate amazing food, and took a tour of Alcatraz.

I have also been able to remember my dreams as of late and have been journaling them.  Have been using this site to do some rudimentary interpretations.

What have you done for your happiness lately?

In the midst of a travel daydream…

When I was a kid, in the summertime, one of the favorite past-times was watching the stars. It allowed me to stay up much past dark with my grandparents. We had no telescope but loved it just the same. Occasionally I suggested counting the stars, to no avail.

As an adult, I am still fascinated with the night sky and I still don’t own a telescope (one of these days). If I were to combine the night sky with travel (a couple of my favorite things) I might wind up in a few of these locations:


Prague: To see the Astronomical Clock. This clock fascinates me it’s not specifically the night sky (hope to have more to say about the astronomical clock other than I want one).

Chile: Apparently is the place to go for observatories and astro-tourism

Alaska: The Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis
