Wherever I May Roam

and in honor of
One hundred years of National Parks
enjoy my post.

It's all about the journey.
No matter where you are
or where you travel
make it worthy.

I've got a plan for 2017 and it's all about more
 journeys away from my own backyard.
I'm excited about meeting new places and people
and animals 
and yes, even trees.

I've never met a tree I didn't like.

Even their shadows are gifts.

"If you don't have any shadows
you're not in the light."
Lady Gaga

Sink, swim or float 
it doesn't matter.
It's your boat.
Be yourself.
No matter

Feeling out of sorts?
There are, So many places one must visit to feel.

Friendship Bridge


Make new adventures with family and friends too.

"Best friends (and family) are the people in life that
make you laugh a little louder, smile a little brighter,
and live a little better."

Even in the worst of circumstances
you can always find a little peace.

The Peace Monument at Peace Circle

From Guadalupe Mountains National Park

America has so many National Parks just waiting
 to be enjoyed and explored.

The Statue of Good and Evil
Part of the Peace Fountain
outside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine
in New York.

So when I'm feeling blue or overloaded by so 
many dumps 
(you know the ones that tug at your very soul)
then it's time to re-boost and reload.


So let's start making plans!
America we love you.
No matter what,
it's home.

God Bless America
God Bless Us All

Take good care of you,
and spread your goodness everywhere you go.
