I have held myself back from gypsy wanderlust for as long as I can bear. My daughter says she remembers me talking about a cross country trip when she was in high school – and that’s been a while. (Probably longer than even she cares to admit…)
So, when the year turns, I’m planning to light out for the territories. My goal is to be gone for at least two months – and to travel mostly on what William Least Heat Moon referred to as “blue highways” – the lines on his map that represent the two lane roads through the small towns and forgotten parts of the country.
When I’m not on the road, I live in an old house built in 1842 in Deer Isle, Maine where I design websites, make jewelry from precious metals and found objects, and paint with encaustics. The web design pays the bills, and the other stuff feeds my soul.
MAX – daring travel companion – is a sweet standard poodle puppy who shares my love of life, and has his own great sense of humor and adventure.
I’ll do the writing and take the photographs. Max will be the icebreaker. Together, we’ll have a wild ride!
