A few years ago, I unearthed a travel journal from a month-long trip to Europe that I took in 2006. As I reviewed its pages, I was struck by just how many details of the trip I had completely forgotten. And if the memories of a once-in-a lifetime trip that was so impactful to me could fade away – how much of my day-to-day life is lost? Sensations, emotions, achievements, losses, experiences from the mundane to the exceptional, all transforming from that specific moment in time to become that day, that week, that year, that life…

As I get older and gain a better understanding of how fragile, how brief, and how precious life really is, it's become even more important to me to me experience it to its fullest and to try to retain all of those little moments that might otherwise get lost. It's with this idea that I started the process of recording these moments – a travel journal, of sorts.

A travel journal for life.

The dinosaur terrarium on my desk at work. 
Thanks, Megan.
Seeing Prometheus in IMAX 3D
with my hunny.

Falling asleep in our new comfy bed
next to this sleepy-head.

And this silly, sleepy head..


  1. You make us smile! Love your blog! Hubby went to see Prometheus and liked it a lot. He said I would've been grossed out by some of it. ;) Happy Tuesday, cuz.

    1. Awww - Thanks! So glad you like it! Heck, I'm glad you read it!!

      Prometheus was good, but had some graphic, slimy bits, for sure. And in 3D, no less. Not for a weak stomach!
