I’ve been traveling a bit lately.  Did I write that already?  My head, heart and vision have been mightily exercised.

It was wisteria time in SC when I left:

And my lemon tree was blooming, smelling so luscious

But I left to go to an art workshop in Vermont…

…where friends find springtime gardening a bit rough:

After a productive week in Vermont I came home briefly before flying off to L.A., or LaLa Land for a brief two days.  Was shooting a small documentary for ESPN on the history of the Sports Bra, no less.  A shot of  LA’s sunset:

Then back home before heading up to Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley for a Shamanic Retreat.  Such fabulous natural beauty, different from SC.  Although similar to Vermont with its mountains and deciduous forests, it has a quite different feel, a different spirit.  It seems somehow gentler…

Two of my companions wading in the Rapidan River.  I followed shortly thereafter…

I learned a great deal on each leg of my travels…  I find that the body may be aging, but this mind is as curious and inquiring as ever.  It was simply the devilish goddess of scheduling that caused all these

And/but yes:

It’s nice to go home and be greeted by my loved ones…

 

Home again, home again, jiggety, jig!
