Kuri: Where have you been?

Me: Traveling. You had exemplary care.

Kuri: You left. Then you came back and then you left again.

Me: I picked up some wonderful stories, some great new mythologies, and some fantastic pictures.

160207-6D-9419Hiyu: You didn’t have our permission.

Loki: What’s more fantastic than us?IMG_4504-small

Me: You’re all fantastic.

Hiyu: The dog isn’t well and you left for almost a whole month.

Kuri: I’m glad your laptop broke. That’ll teach you.

Loki: I’m not glad. I like to snuggle with the laptop. It’s warm.

Me: I’m back now. Laptop is being fixed. Dog is being taken care of.

Hiyu: I think she’s really sick.

Me: I know.

Loki: Where did you go?

Me: Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Palm Desert, New York City.

Loki: Why?

Me: One has to live life if one wants to write about it.

Loki: So where are all the pictures?

Me: After I get the laptop fixed. Then I will have lots of stories to tell.

Hiyu: What about the dog?

Me: She’s very old. She’s my top priority now.

Hiyu: That’s fair. For now.

Me: Thank you.

Kuri: I’m glad you’re back.

Loki: Me too.

Me: And I’m glad to be back.

Rainbow Hill Meanders Report

2015-SX50-0187

In the paradox of the space/time continuum, while the goats of Planet Goatshttp://www.planetgoats.com/ gave Rainbow Hill a much needed haircut, the Hill meandered on a cross-country adventure. 2015-70D-7520

I was, perhaps, a little too adventurous, but I wouldn’t change anything about my three weeks on the road except for the long fall, the painfully bruised ribs and the fact that I’d use several more layers of bug repellent.

As usual, there was so much more to do, explore and experience than I could fit in. Just means I’ll have to go back. I love road trips.

As my son retires from dance, we say goodbye to wonderful Kansas City, Missouri and hello to NYC.

I will miss KC, but I also love Manhattan. It’s another chapter in the ongoing adventure of life.

Confession time:

I am a random stop, follow-that-sign type of traveler.2015-SX50-9970

One of our first adventures was a sculpture garden. I saw it from the road, but there was no signage after the freeway off-ramp.

So I super-navigated by that little compass hidden in my brain.

I followed along the curves of a dirt road and then it was there. The drive into the unknown was so worth the dusty road.

We discovered sculpture Wayne Porter at Porter Sculpture Park http://www.portersculpturepark.com/ 2015-SX50-0107

His garden contains a wide array of fun, wacky, thought-provoking sculptures that makes one feel like Alice entering Wonderland.2015-SX50-0131

And did I mention there were dragons?

I would love to hear from you about the best places to discover and explore. My list is long for the known adventures, but I also love the off-key and unusual. Send me suggestions.
