When my son was a toddler, we live
#Repost@therealanniemcq with @get_repost ・・・ When my son was a toddler, we lived in condo in a cul-de-sac in North Hollywood. We had a teeny postage stamp sized lawn in the front where we would play every day with a little boy from across the street. They would poke sticks in the water meter hole, play in the dirt around a big tree they called “the rabbit garden”, and make “cowboy drinks” for their moms. There was a tree in front and for nearly a full year, there was a deflated balloon caught in the branches. My son named it “Famous The Balloon” and he said hello and good-bye to it every time we came out to play. I hadn’t thought of it in years, but the other day driving home, I was pondering the fact that this kid is graduating in a month, and as I pulled in the drive I found this in the front yard. It’s still there, two days later, dancing around the snapdragons. Thanks, Famous, for checking in on our boy. He’s still full of magic and kindness. #balloon#story#childhood#growingup

I get a lot of input on where to find new music. I find some great stuff, but I rarely get my socks knocked off as hard as I did listening to this young woman from England. Thanks, @nodepression#smartrock#playlikeagirl#thatshowyouplayacousticguitar

#latergram#lotsawords I was recently in Copenhagen and stopped posting abruptly. The thing is, the trip wasn’t going good. My ol’ friend the arthritic knee was very present and I was movin slow. My family was going through some emotional stuff and I wasn’t there for them. And I felt like a hypocrite posting so much on social media, because I don’t really use social media until I travel, and if you’re just looking at pics for how good an Instagram post they will be, it can change the trip. So, I decided to not post anything until I got back, which took care of one issue. As I was traveling to Helsinki and pondering why I was even doing the trips, I lost my passport. At the Copenhagen airport. Disbelief turned into a truckload of shame that buried me for a few days. It happened on a Friday and I had to wait until Monday for the Embassy to open. Luckily my hotel had another room for me. My travel insurance should cover all lost $$, and I didn’t get to see Helsinki or Oslo. But I’m gonna try to work on some physical and mental stuff before I travel again. So I’m posting some photos of Copenhagen because even though it’s infrequent, it’s nice hear things from friends old and new. And Copenhagen is a pretty great city. #scandinavia2019#coldandkilted#copenhagenwinter2019#theproperjaunt

So, I know these posts make it seem like I’m some galavanting jet-setter. Maybe it’s because almost the ONLY time I use social media is when I travel. A truth that is behind these pics doesn’t always come out: I miss my family TERRIBLY when I’m gone. I do travel with them, but it’s better and cheaper going solo and I can go places they might not care to visit (i.e., cold places). It’s why the trips are so short. Also, because of an arthritic knee, I’m on some point of the Excruciating Pain Scale every single day. I act like someone who can walk many miles - often over cobblestones- but I have to rest a lot and take the occasional pain pill. It’s the G. Gordon Liddy quote- the trick is not minding. The solo trips are pretty cheap, and they satisfy a lot of urges. The physical price doesn’t feel, to me at least, too expensive. I don’t know what the future will bring- about my health or the health of family or country. I go now because I can, and being able to say and DO that is a blessing I don’t take lightly. And now I think I’ll have another Danish beer. #okwithbeingnotfunny#scandinavia2019#coldandkilted#copenhagenwinter2019#theproperjaunt
