What I learned flying with a Tesla executive

I like her dress, was my first thought. So I made the comment to the tiny woman with the long bob as she sat next to me on the plane. “Thanks!” she replied, her eyes revealing surprise that I’d acknowledged her presence. She put her bag under the seat in front of her. I returned

How To Begin Again

I stood at the bottom of a hiking trail, staring at the path ahead of me. While there was still plenty of light in the sky, the canopy of leaves from the trees blocked out most of the light, making the path seem foreboding and dark. I closed my eyes for a moment, listened the

A Novel Idea

Before I left for Nashville I had a strange urge… One that I, sadly, often fight. I wanted to READ something. Much like traveling, I feel like reading is an integral part of self-growth. But I don’t do nearly as much of it as I should. For one, I lack the time to commit to

It’s amazing what comes to light when you think you’re going to die. Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. I hear your skeptical voices. But you weren’t THERE, okay? And before you judge, let me explain my crazy. I was house sitting out in Red Rock Canyon in a beautiful community that backs up to
