Linda Higdon on a Womens Journey to Kenya

I recently returned from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and my first Women in Travel Summit conference organized by Wanderful, “an international sisterhood of women who support one another — before, during and after travel.” The conference brought together a lively, diverse (age, race and ethnicity) group of women travel writers and bloggers, along with destination and resource […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #307 — From Hawaii and Mexico to a Blizzard Edition???

March 13, 2017 17 comments

(If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here.) I was feeling a big smug, thinking that Mr. Excitement and I had managed to escape what I was sure would have been the worst of Philadelphia’s winter by escaping leaving for a month from January 22nd until February 21st. We started with a week in Honolulu, […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge #289 – “Ahoy Thar” Edition

October 18, 2016 16 comments

Once again I was MIA for another week. This is becoming a disturbing unfortunate habit. I’m going to blame it on watching too much TV coverage of the United States’ election and thus becoming paralyzed with depression. (That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. After November 8th, I’ll have to come up with another […]

Dreamcatcher Zentangle tangle compositions

This week’s Zentangle Diva’s challenge was to use Dreamcatcher, a tangle by Certified Zentangle Teacher Daniel Lemothe (yay Daniel). Daniel developed Dreamcatcher by deconstructing the pattern used in Native American dreamcatchers. Dreamcatchers were originally used by the Ojibwe (Chippewa) peoples who live mostly in eastern Canada and some northern mid-West states in the United States. […]

Zentangle Diva Challenge Straight Lines

For the first time since I started doing the Zentangle Diva’s weekly challenges some time in 2014, I missed several weeks in a row. No excuses. I left my summer digs in Brigantine, New Jersey on August 29th and left for two weeks in England and Iceland two days later, but I’ve participated in weekly […]

Touring Iceland’s Golden Circle Route from Reykajvik

The flag of Iceland at Thingvellir National Park

I don’t like to drive. Mr. Excitement, my traveling companion (through life and on the road), doesn’t like to drive when he wants to be able to look at the scenery and when we don’t want marital discord about directions marring our sojourn. Therefore, whereas the word “tour” has some dismayed, seasoned travelers heading for […]

Celtic knot tangle pattern

(If Zentangle is a new concept for you, start here). This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use the new tangle, Skye, by Margaret Bremner, CZT. For this tangle, Margaret deconstructed a type of Celtic Knot pattern she saw on a box for the game, Isle of Skye. I don’t know anything about the […]

Baby Boomers Hike Diamond Head in Honolulu, Hawaii

Aerial view of the Diamond Head crater on Oahu, Hawaii

We live in the City of Brotherly Love (and Sisterly Affection), Rocky’s hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am positive that in this city of over 1,500,000 souls, quite a few of them have never visited our most iconic landmark, the Liberty Bell. When you live somewhere, you figure you’ll get around to visiting the important […]

Boomeresque’s Visit to the Philadelphia Flower Show

Tulips at the Philadelphia Flower Show

One of the few years I missed visiting the Philadelphia Flower Show was the year our older son was born on March 8th during a snowstorm—across the street from the Flower Show. The first Philadelphia Flower Show was held in 1829 and it has been a March fixture in Philadelphia since the 1920’s. Today, the Philadelphia […]

Hindsight – A Somewhat Self Indulgent Look Back on 2015 Travels

January 5, 2016 19 comments

Zentangle Inspired Art Peace Bird

Actually, this look back is probably more like full on self indulgent, partly so I will be able to remember the pretty good year that just passed and partly for the few people who bemoan the loss of our my yearly newsletter that was tucked into the snail mail holiday cards I used to send. We […]
