Road trip

Most road trips make one feel better and this one was no exception to the rule. Travel is getting easier and easier with the trailer. My only outburst was when we were sailing down a 7000 ft pass at 70 mph and I "calmly" ask my husband if we should be driving so fast. I did not get the response I desired so hanging on tightly we quietly but quickly descended the mountain top. We arrived at the bottom safe and sound my heart was a little rattled but it quickly recovered and the rest of the trip was uneventful. Halloween at dusk, I took a walk it was a quiet still evening, the sky was that twilight shade of blue and a large silver platter of a full moon was on the horizon. Tiny bats were dancing in the air above me chasing invisible dinner flapping their quiet wings. It was then I realized I had my joy back and that my own small little world was at peace. As mysteriously as the sadness had come it had gone. I had learned a little more in a lesson about "this to shall pass" that everything changes good and bad nothing ever stays the same.


  1. Glad you are feeling good again! Love your photos - as usual, you show you have a wonderful eye for the small details! Gorgeous!

  2. I'm so glad that you're "better" because the world needs those beautiful photographs that you take! We used to do a lot of pop-up camping and I was always amazed at how it slowed life down ... and I was thankful for that.

  3. Welcome back Lorrie,
    looks as if the trip was a very good one.
    The lady bug picture is wonderful.
    Are you on Flickr?


  4. I am so glad you're back...and feeling good. I know....the dark days do pass......

    Sounds like your Halloween walk was wonderful..I too took the peaceful approach..I was pretending I was at Deetjens in Big Sur. I put on my George Winston "Autumn" c.d. got all my candles glowing and watched the moon rise over the mountain.....

    More later,
