Okay that was a longer break than I had anticipated, but in the end I realized it was what I needed. Sold a house, moved across the country, and finished school. Endings and beginnings are difficult, exhausting and somewhat exciting, depending on how you choose to look at them. I'm still deciding on the  exciting part.

Things in general are rolling along. I've started a podcast, My Views, Extended. I'll have links when the first episode is posted. It will consist of possible extentions of this blog or other topics, that I feel will come across better in voice. Or if I'm honest, it will be a quicker and easier format than blogging. Record it and post it. Permissions for songs/music, getting all the legal ducks in a row is the hold up.

I'll get back to My views, of course. Recipes, because the holidays are coming up and I just like to share what works out in the kitchen (and sometimes what doesn't). Reviews of products that I love/like. And anything else that I find interesting/exciting. Maybe sippets of poetry or other writing. Who knows? I'll also finish out my vacation series from earlier in the year. Hopefully someone visiting, or wanting to visit can get some use out of the series.

Finally, I'm not a huge fan of the various other social media platforms but they are necessary in this day and age of business. So, I will try to be more interactive on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. I'm still working out how and the frequency but there it is, and so it will be.


Till next time,


It's been a decent week. Nothing too dramatic. I did get to see someone at the Hospice where mom died and I'll definitely be utilizing their services. Group work after I get back from BC, and wellness therapies as soon as possible. Those include complementary massage therapy, Reiki, and reflexology, etc, for up to two years. The insomnia is back in full force and I need the help in getting my body back in balance.

School is bumping along. The business planning is bumping along, although slowly. It's a lot on my plate and I'm still trying to figure out the schedule, without becoming overwhelmed. Any suggestions are more than welcome!

I've also decided to go ahead and get my drivers license now, instead of waiting until I move. (I've had my beginners multiple times, but let it lapse. I guess I wasn't ready.) At least it will be in process, plus BC credits the time put in, from another province. Not that I'll get a car right away, but it will give me options for short getaways and such.

Still figuring out how the podcasting thing is going to happen. Just audio or audio/video. Topics will be varied like my blog. I know I just have to do it and work out the kinks along the way. Too many years have passed since my first vision of it, so it's time to move ahead. The editing or recording of it, is what I'm still trying to figure out.

Getting to know my new camera. I'll take constructive criticism, because I'm always willing to learn, as long as I'm alive and able. One of my muses, is not so amused, but that's life sometimes. Although I do thank her at the end of a photo session, for allowing me to annoy/blind her with flashes.

Have a great weekend!
