The husband and I recently trekked across the state for a brief respite from all things home – mostly responsibility of any kind – to visit the gulf. I am one of those people who lives in the magical land of Florida. Less than an hour to the ocean, a little more than two to … More Sunset Celebration
I needed just three states to complete my eastern seaboard map: New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine. Only Vermont remains. Last week I accompanied a friend to New Hampshire to visit some of her family. I volunteered to go, as is my way. Sometimes I get a yes, sometimes a thanks but no thanks. My feelings … More The Periwinkle Door
Wandering Wednesday: Cedar Key, Florida. I wish I could tell you how long it took to get to certain places. From my house on the east side of Orlando it took us about 7 hours to get to Cedar Key. I believe it is probably less than a 3 hour drive. Such is the life … More Subtraction = Abundance

Beyond that I can faintly make out the sound of ropes and masts meeting each other as the wind and surf rock the sailboats nearby. It’s a beautiful day, I just know it, before … More Apalachicola – It’s Just Fun To Say
I have had the tremendous fortune to be invited to this natural wonder for the long Fourth of July weekend. The beauty of the water and landscape is just breathtaking. In one day we did yoga on the deck of a private home overlooking the cobalt blue of the Atlantic ocean; took a boat ride … More Silenced by Beauty
My relationship with Florida has evolved much like a good marriage. It began courting me when I was younger, using my grandparents as bait. I would fly from Washington DC to St. Petersburg by myself when I was about 8. The lovely stewardesses (that’s what they were called back then) would take good care of … More I Heart Florida
Day Seven: Pondicherry. Starting your day with yoga on the rooftop of a beach resort has got to lead to only good things. Or at the very least, a good attitude. Our first stop today is the home and ashram of Sri Aurobindo. There are no photos allowed anywhere so I am careful to note … More Maps, schmaps
