OTOH, friends and family who like to keep track of the tangled (pun intended) recesses of my mind—read on. I admit I thought today was August 1st, […]

Tangled Zentangle Tile using N'zeppel as a string

Much of the United States, and indeed, the northern hemisphere in general, sizzled last week through the weekend. After a stormy night, the extreme heat finally broke. Dino (our ancient cockapoo) and I have been pretty much confined indoors as we enjoy a rainy, cool-ish day “down the shore” in Brigantine, New Jersey. However, we’re […]

Zentangle organic tangles in color

Disclosure: I am hopeless at keeping plant life alive. Before I was an almost recovered lawyer (i.e. when I was a more than full time lawyer), Mr. Excitement and I realized that our home was a living example of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Any living thing that could survive with the amount of care we […]

You know how we try to teach our children not to leave things til the last minute. I had to tell our sons: Do as I say, not as I do. Emulate your father, that guy over there focusing like a laser beam on his work. Unlike Mr. Excitement, I do my best work with […]

Zentangle tiles

Some Boomeresque readers know that in addition to being addicted to Zentangle®, I’m also very fond of Mr. Excitement, travel, sunsets, flora (even though no plant species is safe in my care), and dogs.

Andy's Old Port Pub Portland, Maine bacon lobster mac'n cheese

In early spring, I traveled to Portland, Maine to attend the Women in Travel Summit conference. I was happy to learn that some of my baby boomer travel blogger peeps would also be attending.

When Mr. Excitement and I had the chance for a two day getaway in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, I immediately knew I wanted to build our visit around exploring historic sites north of Philadelphia. It has been many a number of years now since I was a college history major, but I’ve continued to be drawn to the […]
