I am so ready to get back on the road again.


IMG_0183-XLI am so ready to get back on the road again and get to traveling.  This staying in one place and not getting out to see the world is wearing on me and is definitely getting way to old for my liking.  I really miss the sights and sounds and smells that I encounter when I’m someplace new or even revisiting someplace that I’ve already been to.

Take Vienna for example.  It’s so beautiful during the day and especially so when the lights come on.  Whoever said Paris with “The City of Lights” has never been to Vienna.  I would give almost anything to have the opportunity to eat at the little Italian restaurant that I found.  It’s not that far from St. Stephen’s and you can go for a nice stroll after you’re done eating.  That would so nice and relaxing.

And then I think of how I got lost in Lucerne and found this wonderful Catholic church.  They don’t build churches like that here in the states.  I don’t care if you’re religious or not.  It’s amazing what you can see in a church like this.  The artwork is phenomenal. 

And now it has me wondering when I’m going back to Austria.  Ugh!  There’s too much to see and not enough time and money to do it all.

IMG_0012-XLI am exploring black & white as a medium and I’m liking it more and more.  There is something about it that speaks to me and maybe it’s just a throw back to a long time ago when all our pictures were in black & white.  I still need to figure out how to do a watermark so I can identify all of my pics for the future.  It’s not like I’ll make a fortune off of them anyway but it is my work and not the work of someone else. 

Slow but sure we’ll take this place one thing at a time and one step at a time.  It can’t be rocket science to get done what I want done.  It’s just a matter of trying things out and seeing what works and what doesn’t.  Now I’m wondering why my MacBook isn’t making this place any easier.  It must be the operator.

Why is this so difficult?


It started a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.  That sounds almost poetic if not a downright plagiarism of someone’s literary effort.  But that’s not the point.  The point is I’m trying to figure out why it’s so doggone difficult to find a place to land since the “Ply” died. All I’m looking fr is a place that’s easy to use and where I can express myself without all of the angst and drama that I experienced on Yahoo 360 and more recently on Blogster.

Is it really that difficult to find that place in this world?
