A little love from the trail…

Ok so it is true and my beloved mountains won in the decision of where to escape in the battle over mountain or sea. Stories will follow soon to explain more about the pictures, the adventure and an amazing, way too short get away.

Here is a little trail love from today and a heart shaped rock I found laying on the path. Sending you much love and will catch up reading you very soon. 

Xoxoxox ❤️



I'm a dreamer and hopeless romantic who believes that there is always a silver lining to everything. Now, inspired by the simple life, I have learned that less is more and that we find magic all around us if we take the time to notice. Life is a journey and a process that is ever changing. We are constantly evolving in the matter of who we are as we align our stars and shed a past no longer in line with our highest self. I don't easily fit conventional norms, not because I'm a rebel, but because of resenting the pull that threatens to take me away from my true beliefs and my unique personal identity. I support the power of "Choice" and the ability for us to be the architects of our own lives. Some of these choices should have something a little wild about them as they form the moments that forever stay edged in our memory and make our hearts beat with wonder. Nobody will remember the ordinary. For myself, I'm a warrior who has fallen many times, who has gone through trails an tribulations and who is no stranger to adversity. After all, my choice remains clear, to get back up and stand stronger than ever. To recognize that it often takes our darkest moments to mold us into who we were meant to be. I have learned to trust the process and stay positive through the challenges. I trust it to be the only way to prevent my heart from hardening and allowing bitterness to creep in. I believe in the power of "NOW" as it is the only moment we truly ever have. The past is gone, unchangeable and the future hasn't happened yet. All we can impact is the current moment. Everything starts with a choice and hopefully with one that has something wild about it and may even scare you to death to execute. DO IT...I promise you won't regret it. This blog is my voice to share my Journey. If I could describe this adventure in short, I would call it "Spiritual awakening" with a yearning for "Freedom" and going after the things that truly matter. To seek a less complicated life that is stripped down from the many obligations and responsibilities that often tie us down. For me it is a life free of rules and regulations, one that allows me to escape the must expectations while jumping off the hamster wheel that is spinning faster all the time. To be on my own time and live each day to the fullest, to make it all slow down by banishing routine and unleashing my creativity/artistic values in an effort to entertain whatever subject comes to mind. And if lucky, to perhaps offer a different view to my readers, one that speaks to your soul vs. the demands of what society might expect. It is one that empowers you to be your unique self and follow the beat of your own drum. I am dreaming big as I trail blaze the path to a new life and becoming a storyteller. I find my inspiration in the little things in life, in Mother Nature and on the trail that provides the adventures and the backdrop for a book someday. My hope is to inspire "Courage" in others who might find themselves on the brink of taking that first step. This blog serves as a foundation for my collection of personal thoughts, opinions and experiences and by no means am I an expert on any topics mentioned. To my readers I would say that the universe connects us by a common thread, we all search and we all have something to say. We don't always have to meet in person to share a strong bond and people enter our path for a reason. Some stay for a short time and serve their purpose, while others teach us a lesson and help us become stronger through experience. And a few special ones remain as the treasures we hold dear over a lifetime and touch our hearts beyond means. In whatever way we are meant to be, I thank you for crossing my path and for stopping by. I hope that I have left you inspired, full of wonder and with a few "Wild Choices" to make....Hugs XO

  1. The beauty lies always in the detail my friend, thanks for sharing this! Sending you hugs from Amsterdam (in transit). I had hoped ( and still do) to see some beautiful mountain scenery later today when I will drive from Seattle to Portland, but the weather gods are calling for torrential rains. Have a blessed day tomorrow (for me it is already Wednesday 😉)

      1. Thanks my friend, this means so much! I sure hope I get to taste your tiramisu one day! Arrived safely and are now in my hotel after a 26 hour day, including the last 6 at work. But that’s life. And it is not too bad. Today only torrential rain, no mountains. But there will be plenty time in the summer to explore the Columbia Gorge, Mt. Hood, Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens and the Cascades. Looking so much forward to it! Hope so much your are still enjoying your trip! Marcus

      2. A beautiful area indeed to explore. Mount Rainier especially during wildflower season when the top is still snow capped.
        And I’m sure we will visit over tiramisu some day 😉
        Have a great trip my friend.
