I Suck At Goodbyes… Like, REALLY Suck At Them

I was thinking this morning while I was eating my breakfast at the dining table by myself. A scrambled egg with salsa verde, avocado, one tortilla, and a side of a gluten-free frozen waffle (actually toasted not frozen) half with butter and half with almond butter and honey.

Visually Impaired People Share Their Travel Experiences

Humans naturally take for granted most of everything we have and if we think about it, we can’t imagine being without it, including any of our five senses. If you are fortunate enough to have all of your five senses working, I bet you haven’t even thought of how it would be to travel without any one of them. Can you imagine walking into a brewery in Dublin and not smell the hops? Or walking into a chocolate shop in Belgium and smell nothing?

Weekly Small Pleasures #95

 

So many changes in the last couple of months. Big changes still occurring. Transition time. I’ll probably make an official announcement about one of those changes in the next couple of weeks. I hate transition time. You’d think I’d be used to it by now considering I have moved almost every year, sometimes multiple times a year, in the last 8 years.
