Hakuna matata, the Kilimanjaro way

By in another witty life lesson., something new., World Vision.

Ordinarily, I’m not one for bragging since I think it errors on the side of pathetic. But I must be in the lower percentile of people who have managed what I did yesterday, so brag I will: I was carried (technically, pushed and bounced) down Mt. Kilimanjaro on a stretcher with my own rescue crew. […]

When in Tanzania…

By in something new., World Vision.

I will be a happy person two weeks from today — I will have come off climbing a gigantic mountain with no less than all my limbs still attached, 10 toes and fingers, and nothing bitten by frost. Colin will be arriving in Tanzania, I’ll drag myself out of relaxation mode to grab him at […]

Rainier (Seattle, Washington, USA) – 14,411 feet C. Mt. Kilimanjaro (Arusha, Tanzania) — 19,341 feet The correct answer is *not* C. And still, I have non-refundable tickets to Tanzania […]

Day 1: New…. year, new resolution

By in another witty life lesson., life., something new.

Day 1 of January blog a day — New: New year, new resolution. If my life were some sort of book, last year would’ve been a notable chapter, I think. Words and phrases like ‘beautiful’ and ‘incredible’ and ‘so damn tough’ would fill those pages. I suppose it might be a worthwhile read since nothing […]

The anti-boring January project

By in collections., something new.

January has a terrible personality — bipolar really. In the beginning January is actually quite ecstatic… a little over the top even. She makes all these lofty goals and sets ridiculously high expectations of herself with a can-do attitude that makes you believe she really will “be more patient”. She’s even kind of nice to […]

Can Kris Jenner make you more adventurous…?

By in another witty life lesson., something new.

Update: Katherine Bach’s automated emails are persistent. I’ve received three more since this first one urging me to try out some Zestra. Still not giving in…. *     * I received the following email today…. It got me thinking a lot about how some people have a greater sense of sensual adventure than others. For instance, […]
