January 2014

I found the ideal suitcase a few months ago-it weighs 4 pounds! I fit all the necessary belongings in it-and even had room for “un-necessities”! The bonus? It was easy to push and lift. I breezily walked through the airport.

Now that I had found the perfect suitcase, could I find a matching carry-on? Yep! My pint sized carry-on weighs 3 pounds! Fully-packed, I lift it with one hand! The wonder of light-ness, as I cheerfully set it into the small overhead compartment!


…the way I like to travel.

My history is fully-packed with interesting events. To carry these packages, do I really need a black 30-pound suitcase? Or will a 4-pound neon pink case do the job? Do I really need boring, drab luggage? Or would a colorful, compact piece be more fun?

The color encourages me to smile. The weightless case lightens my step. And knowing I cannot pack everything, I carefully select contents.

I travel light!

What’s a non-post?

My definition: A post that’s not a post. Text on a blog that says I don’t feel creative today. No witty or interesting subject comes to mind. And can include a photo that does not match the subject.

In reality, there’s been great stuff going on. My journey has taken some interesting turns and at times has been at 70 miles an hour…a bit fast for me, yet I’m keeping up! Yet there are times when I feel that I must move back down to 55 miles per hour and pay closer attention to the road. Like now. I’m slowing down to watch the scenery–there are some mighty pretty sights out there! And I’m slowing down long enough to figure out what I need to take along on the journey.

Stay on the beam in 2014!
