Share                I love lights and sparkle and glimmer and shimmer as much as anyone, but I think nature can fit the bill for “festive” as well. Today’s Twitter #FriFoto theme is just that; festive.  My mind turned to this one recent favorite snapshot I took of nearby Lake […]

Phabulous Phoenix – Changing my Rustic Perceptions of Arizona

Thumbnail image for Phabulous Phoenix – Changing my Rustic Perceptions of Arizona by Gina "SuuperG" Stark May 3, 2012 Travel and Adventures

ShareWe all have long-held biases of places. Opinions we formed when we were less open-minded or on family road trips driving through desert territory without air conditioning.  Most of my ignorant perceptions of my neighboring state of Arizona were forged under these conditions.  I’m old enough to have experienced a family car (a Ford Pinto, […]

Gratitudinousness – What I am Thankful for Today and Always

ShareGratitudinousness.  It’s one of my favorite conjured words. And it really works in that gratitude is such a BIG concept…I think it kinda needs more greedy letters “We don’t need more to be thankful for, we might just need to be more thankful.” Unknown Many who know me in my life and on Twitter and […]

For 2011 I Resolve…to Be Cool with Not Resolving

Share‘Tis the season, yes? It’s barreling toward us…another start of another year when we look back and take stock of what we accomplished in the last 12 months.  Another lost chance to be toned and well-honed, loved, rich, enlightened, famous, respected, vice-free (so un-fun!) and any myriad other gag-inducing goals.  OK fyne! Being rich is […]

Oh Deer! An Accidental Way to Feel Grateful

ShareI’m happy to be alive today.  Not just alive, but intact.  My car isn’t. I had a close encounter with a cloven-hoofed animal late last night.  I was actually maintaining a slower speed than normal for me on this stretch of mountain highway because it was so late and I was a bit sleepy, so […]

Drip Drip…a Few Drops in the Bucket

ShareA while back I wrote about my Charitable Drip System, where I pledged a penny per (paid) word of my blogging to charity.  Well, I am happy to announce – albeit belatedly! – that I sent a check in the amount of $73.98 to The Nature Conservancy.  One could snicker at this tawdry amount; but […]

Paloma: Bracing for Loss Part II in a Series

Thumbnail image for Paloma: Bracing for Loss Part II in a Series by Gina "SuuperG" Stark March 25, 2010 Random Ponderings

ShareFeeling Good and Mischievous Our beloved “nut” (rather than mutt) Paloma has endured five radiation treatments.  Perhaps its her “dad” and me who are doing the enduring, as she is happily sedated and gets treats afterward, and gets to ride in the car for two hours each way (her favorite pastime!)  How fortunate that animals […]

New Zealand: Weather…or Not

ShareI can’t believe I’m blogging about the weather…but, well, it’s better than politics! It’s funny, looking back on this collection of entries, how much it seems that inclement weather thwarted our plans.  But thwart or no, we were always guided to some other pleasant discoveries…if only that my traveling companion (my beloved Mom) and I […]
