Helen Keller described life as "a grand adventure or nothing at all".
This blog is about my own grand adventures over more than seven decades. I could tell you about my family, friends and loves; or my experience with loss, death, divorce, betrayal, and other life tragedies.
But life remains a grand adventure,
and its those experiences I'll pass along to you. LIVE LARGE & LONG!
A Philosophy of Radical Aliveness
"Yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; but today well lived, makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope."
On our trip to and from Ethiopia we did a stop over in Frankfurt, with side trips to Heidelberg and Rheingan to visit Kloster Eberbach built in the 13th century - and once the home to a thousand wine-making monks. We had the good fortune of picking the Villa Orchard Bed and Breakfast whose owners, Joan and Chris Weber not only were great hosts, but picked us and dropped us off at the airport, gave us advice about where to visit in the time we had and took us to the train station. The first night we ate at a German restaurant they recommended, only to find they wouldn't accept dollars or our credit card. Joan came and rescued us with Euros.
