I know it’s been ages since I’ve written, mostly the Dark Ages. Hell, it has seemed like ages since Election Day three days ago… This will be a short post to get back on the horse. I’ll be writing more frequently and if you haven’t checked out my website, do a little tour as I’ve […]
As I enter week 4 of quarantine since hoofing it back from Patagonia in an impromptu 48-hour travel marathon, the new norm is feeling oddly normal with punctuated pangs of panic against a backdrop of low key anxiety.

What a crazy world I reemerged into last Friday after just a week off the grid in Patagonia!  After a couple hours of waffling, I cancelled my trip to Easter Island and flew all the way back home to Hawaii in a 48-hour marathon travel to get back before borders/flights got complicated and be nearer […]

I decided to take a much needed break from traveling for some family QT, babysitting my nephews during Thanksgiving week. They were off school but their parents still had to work, so I embarked on my short-term immersive internship as a stay-at-home aunt. At 6 and 8, they play a lot on their own, and […]
