On the Road…Stuff

What’s my solution? Taking road trips seems to help, seeing new places, visiting old friends, seeing old places again after some time, the lure of the open road and meeting new people. So, I’ve gotten “on the road” many times to get my fix of these things. I must have a travelling bone, as they say; and some of us just like to wander from time to time – growing up in a family who took many road trips is no doubt part of that.

Right now, I’m on a road trip, took my camper van out to see some of eastern Canada,(but it’s turning out to a short trip, due to the heat, wasn’t my ideal time to go, long story, but it’s still been pretty fun). I’ll be making some entries here and sharing some pictures from it soon. Then later, I’ll put together some writings and pictures of my past road trips; if you are interested in that sort of thing, then you can check it out.

As I’ve indicated, this time of the year here it gets very hot. It’s not the best time to be on the road for me, but it is nice to see the growing things of nature in their lushness, and the long days of daylight. I’m planning to make more road trips in the spring (which I did twice in the last three years, blog entries/memoir to come), and also in the fall and even winter (very doable if you take the right preparations with the right vehicle).

More on all that later.

(Mid) Summer Heat

One of my favourite singers has an album titled “Crazy From the Heat” and I have often been able to relate!

I’ve been feeling (and reeling) from the heat this season, which is now mid-summer since June 21 here in the “northern part” of Earth called Canada (don’t be fooled, the days have been getting shorter again since the mid-summer equinox, it’s NOT the start of summer; we are now in the “dark part” of the year). The heat continues to build, however, not one of my favourite things, I’ll take it cooler, thanks; fall and spring are my favoured times.

There have also been the many forest fires going on in Canada (and others places, too), which have been adding to the difficult times many have been having this year/summer, not only with financial issues, but with natural disasters.

But there is also abundant good, and there must be, in this world of duality.
