If I Do Not Have Love, I Gain Nothing

Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all […]

Tree Climbing at sunset

Weekly Photo Challenge: Down

What goes up must come down. On this particular day though, I was way up on cloud nine and nothing in the world could bring me  down. This was our first date. We climbed 90 feet to the top of the tallest tree in town and watched the sun set over Long’s Peak. Who knew […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret

REGRET. What was I thinking?! Why, after a half an hour in the hot oven, did I think it was a good idea to add a tad more water to the  squash? Evidently hot Pyrex + cool water doesn’t mix. Duh. Note to self….

Awareness and Appreciation, Part 2

My prayer for the world is that we  all come to find true internal peace, and to be radiant examples of what it means to be the […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready

Over the weekend we skinned up to the top of the trees just below the North Diamond at Cameron Pass. It was a quintessentially bluebird day. We were ready to get out, ready to play, and, after earning our turns, we were ready to go down! Related articles Weekly Photo Challenge: Ready (beijingcityphoto.wordpress.com) Weekly Photo […]

Awareness and Appreciation, Part 1

So there I was, in a moment of simple appreciation. It didn’t start out as anything profound; I was just enjoying the moment and grateful for the opportunity to be in that moment. It occurred to me that in order to appreciate, we must first be aware. Obviously our awareness ebbs and flows and is […]

The Results Have Spoken. Lucy Wins!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the What Interests You? poll – it was fun to follow. You want to hear more about living intentionally and less about medical academia. I love it! If you haven’t voted, it’s never too late. I’ll check back on the updated results from time to time and will take your suggestions […]

The Makings of a Butternut-Inspired Smoothie

When Life Gives you Lemons, Make …Smoothies?

Surprises are fun, but the anticipation kills me. Long term goals are nice, but I want to reach them now. Budgeting is necessary, but dangit if I have to save up to afford a nice purchase. See a trend here? The latest obsession (and I don’t use that word lightly) in this household is a […]

Let’s Get This Blog Rolling, Shall We?

Blog numero duo! While I still intend to keep my family and friends and random lurking strangers fully in the loop on my personal exploits via blog numero uno, La Vita e Bella, I am now embarking on a new and more formalized blog, the Literary Gadabout. There is no shortage of curiosities floating around in […]
