Alas I wish I could place this blog in the travel category, but for today it belongs in the literature category. I was in my local book store, perusing the cheap paperback section (a favorite past-time of mine), and came across "Congo" by Michael Crichton. I had heard of Crichton from someone in my book … Continue reading The Congo: A World of Mystery and Beauty

Once again my book club pulled through and introduced me to a book that may have never crossed my path, yet I absolutely loved it. It makes me wonder how many other books are out there screaming "Sarah, pick me! You and I will get along so well!" Alas, so many books, so little time. … Continue reading Circe; Everyone Is Human
Man it feels good to have a keyboard under my fingers for something other than work. I know everyone else had an interesting 2020, and I am no different. And because of that, I kind of forgot this thing existed. But I am happy to be back. I got a lot of reading done in … Continue reading Well Hello Again!
Thought the title might be appropriate for a blog that speaks about literature and the wilderness. As an Arizona native, I never feel prepared when the summer hits. In a year in which I rediscovered my love for the outdoors and being in the wilderness, that lack of preparedness had me sitting in my air … Continue reading Where My Wild Fern Dwells
Holy smokes it has been quite some time since I put any sort of words on digital paper! As many of you know life happens, and I took some time to just experience it and mentally process it which led me away from writing. So what brought me back to my laptop? An idea in … Continue reading An Idea That Sparked My Body and Soul
Well it's that time of year again! The. End. Of. It. I know these posts are all over the place, but I enjoy reading them, so I might as well give my own take right? Alright friends, here we go. I think it is appropriate to call 2019 the Year of Rediscovering Myself. Because of … Continue reading Sarah’s Cliche Year In Review
I love live music. I love not-live music. I love Beethoven and Black Sabbath and everything in between. I love watching one person create numerous sounds on a synthesizer or a marching band creating a melody with a plethora of instruments. I am that person who taps their fingers, pens, or whatever else is lying … Continue reading Red Rock Amphitheatre, You Filled My Soul
August. Triple digits and humidity. By far the worst month of the year and the price us Arizonans pay for perfect weather eight months of the year. However, this August proved to be a great month as I experienced some great moments with some very important people in my life. These moments also helped this … Continue reading August Friendships
The journey continues. My specific journey has been up the coast of California to visit two of my great friends who live in San Luis Obispo. This trip has become an annual tradition since they moved a few years back. I always took a plane as it was always for a long weekend and wanted … Continue reading Leaving My Comfort Zone
When I was a kid, road trips were a regular event. We used to load up into our huge van and just go. My dad, being a former truck driver, knew how to navigate the roads without a map and this always impressed me. I remember him teaching me how to identify landmarks and the … Continue reading How I Fell In Love With the Open Road.
