With the heat being what it is, I had to continue being creative with what I did during the day, unless I wanted to hide out in the air conditioned hotel room with the dogs. But there’s no shortage of exploring to do in Tulsa, so the dogs and I had a wonderful day. One … More I love Tulsa
My entire schedule around when to leave home and when to get to Tulsa was designed to get me to Tulsa in time to surprise one of my besties for her birthday. Pre-covid, I had visited Natasha every other month or so, but now it had been 2 years since we’d seen each other. Our … More Surprising The Unsurprisable
The title is a quote I saw somewhere that I take some issue with. Its like the “Happy Vibes Only” idea. Its nice in theory, but its ableist as heck. For those of us with an anxiety disorder, its not possible to always be present and always be happy. But it is something worthy of … More Wherever You Are, Be All There

The longer story is that Poe and I took a rather long time to drive from Kingsport, Tennessee to West Memphis, Arkansas (yes, Memphis is actually in two states! ). The day started earlier than planned, thanks … More From there to here
Poe-the-dog and I are off on another road trip. Today we traveled from the eastern shore of Maryland, through Virginia and ended our day in Tennessee. It was a beautiful drive!
