🌺 Life in the Oasis 🌴

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig


We’re back home from and back to the daily grind, if sleeping in your own bed, making home cooked meals, and returning to a happy routine is the daily grind.

Getting out of one’s comfortable domain is good for the mind and spirit—new sights, smells, sounds, schedules, and such to soak in is spectacular.

On this trip to New Orleans and Cozumel, was, at one time, something that I only read about in books, saw in movies, or studied in atlases. When I was little, I used to pour over maps and atlases, measuring distances between my home and places I dreamed of visiting: Florida, Mount Rushmore, New Orleans, New England, Egypt, Portugal, Italy—a list too long and would bore my readers. In fact, the list of places not on the wish list is much shorter—Antarctica, the North Pole, and Siberia.

I’ve been lucky to do a little travelling, and some of it resulted from business trips, some from wanting to visit certain places, and some not by my choice. Nevertheless, I take each memory and keep them as positive episodes in my life. Some of those travel anecdotes come in handy at cocktail parties.

I feel happy that I shared with you some of the things I saw and experienced on this trip and was thrilled to hear from many of my readers about that. There are so many, many more photographs; it was a dangerous thing when manufacturers put cameras on smartphones! There are countless stories and quips I could have related to go with each photograph, but time was limited, and I didn’t presume to bore anyone to tears.

Now rested and refreshed, there’s hope that my writing will likewise be refreshed. My goal this year is to finish a couple of books I’ve been working on and publish them.

Thank you for coming along on my little spring vacation. I means a lot to me.
