Out of Chicago - Chapter 1

Last week at this time, I was hangin’ out in Chicago.  I hadn’t been to Chicago for years, and I’d forgotten what a thriving and beautiful city it is.  I took the Megabus to Chicago from Detroit.  I had not done that bus trip before, but it was well worth the $55 round trip fare that I paid – including reserved seats.  The Megabus has WiFi, electrical outlet[...]

Chapter 2 - Wandering in Iceland

If I have to get lost, Iceland is a great place in which to be adrift.  Though not really lost, I am without a map of this country so I have no clue where I’m going.  That might be a good thing really.  It will force me to go with the flow and stop being in charge.  It’ll feel good to just be a follower. So, on my second day in Iceland and my first day wi[...]

2015

I'm glad today is the last day of 2015; it was a terrible year. Maybe not as bad as some people had, but it didn't do me any favors. Good riddance!
