Dancing in the Dark

Lots of dancing in the dark in lots of lovely romantic places. Maybe even some moonlit woodsy options and a few mountain tops. This is what I need right now. Perhaps a SL vacation is just the ticket. There are certainly tons of available and willing partners.

Improving your photography while sight-seeing in the Nation's Capital

This is a sort of cross-over post. I could easily add it to "Just Another Artist" but I won't. Mostly it's a vacation to Washington DC. Yes! For a mere couple of thou and a laptop you too can sit at the feet of the National Geographic wizards and learn to create exciting photos of stuff we all look at every day. While I would love the luxury of joining this expeditionary workshop, I believe the money could be much better spent on a semester-long professional photography class. After all, this workshop teaches you how to put the NG spin on your work, not how to improve your personal vision.

Been There - Would Like to Go Back

Feeling nostalgic for the canal boat trip I took in the 80's. The boats have changed a bit but the canals are the same. A few things stand out in my memory: the Wedgewood Visitors Center and the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct (breathtaking and frightening – my first and only case of fear of heights). I suppose I should also mention my two pre-schoolers and the fact that I was pregnant. The country side was lovely. Nothing is better than finding a pub on its good day at the end of a canal drive. I still have the hand painted slate coasters I got on that trip.

Ah, yes! I need this break so badly. I'm incredibly out of shape from forgoing too many daily walks while snowed in. I'm also feeling just a touch of isolation. Going away to an exclusive resort with fellow yoga buffs is perfect! Let's go together!
