Turn Ordinary Places into Memorable Destinations

We tend to think of the world as being “discovered.” Every corner of the globe has already been mapped out, trod upon, or otherwise known to humanity in some way. As individuals, though, we haven’t been everywhere, nor can we go. Even in our own communities, we probably haven’t visited every single place of interest….

Five-State Roadtrip, Part I: The Road(s) to Memphis

The beautifully choreographed intricacies of circumstance continually amaze me. If it hadn’t been for the twice-postponed travel conference that finally took place at the end of April, I might not have orchestrated my job exodus and resulting three-week roadtrip through five states. Despite some significant setbacks and lessons learned, I pulled it off and wouldn’t…

Twenty Twenty Too

Happy New Year! Let’s cut to the chase. I clearly haven’t been consistent with this blogging business. Quite honestly, the twisted mental vortex that the pandemic sucked me and most of the rest of us into can take a portion of the blame. I spent a lot of the last year wallowing in some self-pity…

I’m kicking up the accountability several notches now by committing to posting a video on YouTube every day this month. I will talk about…

What’s going on with this blog??

It has been over a month since my last post, so I wanted to give you an update on what’s happening. I am working on some posts about our Atlanta trip in April, but they will be posted on my forthcoming website that I hope to launch in the early summer. You will find new…

A Very Cayman Christmas

For the first time in history, my employer decided to close for the winter holidays. I saw this as an opportunity for another trip; somewhere with sand and palm trees, and an even 80 degrees. The prices of flights during Christmas week are astronomical, but we found a fairly good deal and headed for the…
