  • Saw a fun new musical -- Seussical, via the newest non-profit theatrical organization to join the San Francisco Bay Area arts community. Yup, it's based on all things Dr. Seuss and its closing out its second season at the historical Alcazar Theatre on Geary Street, a 511-seat theatre that is host to many touring productions of Broadway and Off Broadway plays, as well as variety, cabaret, comedians, and other acts. -
-
While I can't sing 🎶 at least not seriously, I have played piano since I was 5, and love playing musicals on my home #Steinway even though I am shy to play publicly largely because I'm so dang rusty.
-
Love this theatre - this shot is taken from the balcony at sunset! We also loved the show since in true Seussical style, it was a great reminder how to be a child again, and that our imagination is always there for the taking when we simply BELIEVE in the invisible. I try to live my life that way - hope you do too! -

  • When you go to New England next or live there and have never taken in this historical lake, consider Lake Squam, which is the state's third-largest lake. We went out in a motor boat with a local guide who knows the lake like her own pulse including where Bald Eagles and Blue Herons nest and hang out, the best swimming spots, how to take in the sunset and more. -
-
Nature is what it's all about here -- they even have a Natural Science Center, which offers wildlife education and history on the ecology, a great stop if you are bringing kids. -
-
Squam Lake has more than a dozen primitive campsites on its islands, and a remote island you can rent out to get married. -
-
It's also the same lake where On Golden Pond was filmed back in 1981. And, if you're a loon lover, they have many of 'em - I grew up on a lake where we could hear that beautiful loon call at dawn & dusk! -
-
Also just a quick factoid, Squam Lake was originally called Keeseenunknipee, which meant "the goose lake in the highlands".
-

Here's an article I wrote on nature and NH's lakes: https://weblogtheworld.com/formats/featured/the-new-hampshire-lakes-district-summer-fall-travel-guide
  • Magical fluffy bouncing clouds flying over Texas. Love it when I get a clear view like this from a window - never grow tired of what I see from above. Never.
  • I love the serenity of this magical moment ballooning over Salvaleon de Higuey, for in this beautiful memory, barely a breathe could be heard. There were no noises from cars or any urban sprawl for that matter; nothing but the sound of air gently going in and out keeping us afloat only slightly above miles of sugar cane fields and pastures of cows. -
-
As if displaced on another planet, I couldn't help but wonder what life would be like if all of our days started and ended with this top down view of the land we walk on every day. How we would see nature and wildlife differently. How we would see air, water, seeds and all the elementals differently. How we would see humanity and the struggle some have to merely be free differently. How we would see the power of one breathe differently and how every one of those breathes matter more than we can possibly imagine. The quality of that breathe, the sound of it. Being aware of it in us and around us.
-
-
As I listen for that spiritual sound that the fire pumped air so magically makes on a ride at dawn or dusk and reflect on all the pieces of glorious land I've had the opportunity to view from a balloon over the years including this one, the word that pops into my mind before any other is GRATITUDE. -
-
If you have had the great fortune to have seen, heard, tasted and touched many a foreign land and viewed it from above, let us not forget to embrace gratitude every day, for as privileged, blessed travelers, it's never about the destination, it's always about the journey and all the lives we have a chance to positively touch and change along the way.
  • Going to Sonoma more often these days, which reminds me that we need to go over the hills to Napa as there are some restaurants we want to review. Ahhh those warm and lush summer days. -
-
I usually spend more time on the East Coast during the summer (my family travel feature on the Catskills is live on the home page of www.weblogtheworld.com btw) than we have this year and 4-5 international trips by August. This year so far has been about hearth, growing our wellness and spirituality section, lots of organic fare and sipping great California wines (though we have some Spanish ones coming soon for review)! Wearing Page Thirty leather and Charleston shoes. And nope this isn't sponsored, just love em!
