Cultivating Your Happy Place
Set-up: After buying supplies (Must read Nutjob, Part 1, to know exactly the list.) I stop at the end of the checkers counter and prepare to re-bag my groceries. You do that, right?
Because, you know how willy-nilly these baggers can be with their youth and devil-may-care attitude. Kids today.
That’s okay though. I don’t mind re-doing the job at the end of the counter next to the real bagger guy who isn’t, at this point, exactly my friend. (I think it had something to do More >
Dateline: Cabo San Lucas Hilton International Branch Headquarters. Best value for obsessively collected Hilton points. Note: the real resort people wear something called “resort wear.” I took that to mean cargo shorts and flip-flops, so half right.
Set-up: Each of us has a basic self that rests deep inside. Our ethics, values, and beliefs. This is the part of us that we’ve formed based on “best thinking.” Makes us humans sound pretty great, right? Well, hang on. Each of us also has a pseudo self, that is the part of us that is formed by “emotional pressure from within ourselves, or More >
Dateline: Thirty-Two Thousand Feet Over Death Valley, California. All sorts of prospectors met their fate in the desert below.

Madrid Death March, Episode 5, The Spanish Stress Crawl
To appreciate the misery of the Spanish Crawl, you must first read, Episode I, Episode 2, Episode 3: One Wrong Decision Can Cost You Your Life!, and Episode 4: Lost in the Underworld.
I survived intact off the train at the transfer point. I only wish I’d gotten off at the right station. Now what? I locate another map and reroute my journey. Lucky me, I could reach the correct transfer center through the pedestrian tunnel. Lucky me there were several two and three level changes, but there were escalators. Lots of escalators.I only wish More >
Madrid Death March, Episode 3, One Wrong Decision Could Cost You Your Life!
Dateline: The not so fabulous Plaza Real Moderno Hotel, Madrid. Ernest Hemingway drank his way through the night just around the next corner and the next corner and the next . . .
How I got myself into this mess can best be described by thinking about the afternoon you bought something outrageous and daring thinking someday… whatever you bought would be the perfect choice. Only that day never More >

LAST TOURIST STANDING
Lesson: Why it’s never a good idea to judge how other people spend their money. And, yes, I was that woman in cargo shorts dragging my luggage (bang, bang, bang) up and down the two-story non-working escalators in the subway. Up and down and up and down. More >
