And The Journey Begins

Your not going to get any flowery writing from me; but what you will get is an eclectic collection of muses, discoveries, trends, great finds, especially fine food, wine and dark chocolate. You may get some shopping tips now and again, as I have a keen eye for the unusual that sparks conversation.

Although I was born an Aquarian, my moon is 11 seconds into Aries. So what does this mean? 11 seconds points due North, the spotlight from the heavens, and the infant stage of the sign that reflects a fearless, risk taking aspect which battles the humanitarian, more artistic side of the Aquarian. Some only see one or the other, the closest to me know both, and the challenge is to find a balance.

While in traveling on Cape Cod with my road trip girlfriends, I had a revelation on our first stop at a glass art studio. I had wanted to take something back as a memento of the trip so I asked each of my friends to pick a little glass dish. Soon after it became apparent that no one cared for the display of small colorful dishes. In a diplomatic whisper, they proceed to tell me there may be something nicer in another shop. My spontaneous reaction was blurted out to everyone, “Let’s leave, there’s something better down the road!” As the elderly shop owner behind the counter looked up to see the source of this outburst, we all politely left and joyfully laughed in the car. What I realized was that even though life in the moment may seem like the end all, in truth, we are on a journey of new discoveries. No matter where you are, “there is always something better down the road!”

Here’s to caring and sharing!
