Travel and Writing

Wednesday, January 16, 2008


I just can’t seem to put two words together on a page these days…that’s the real problem. My mind just spins with ideas about how to be the most productive, how to generate more money, how to “prove” that I’m a writer by being published more. But the truth is, despite the fact that I write press... Sign in to see full entry.

Introduction to the Program We had our introduction to the program outside on the patio of Cappucini in the late afternoon. It was cooler and breezy enough not to break a sweat, so it really helped cheer me up. From this day forward, the weather for most of my time in Altamura was pleasant and...

July 24

July 23, 2007 Rome is many things, but easy is not one of them. I think this city could eat you alive if you let it---much like how I think New York and Los Angeles would be—except that English is not the first language here. This morning, I headed down to Termini to try to hunt down an adaptor and... Sign in to see full entry.

Monday July 23, 2007 My internal clock is completely out of whack due to the jet lag. It is 7 AM in Rome and I’ve been awake for two hours already. Tomorrow, I jump on a train and head to Altamura for the work camp, and I still need to pack my stuff. I managed to pack only two bags for my entire... Sign in to see full entry.

That Kind of Writing

I am quickly learning that life is never simple for a writer. Our job is to stick the figurative (or literal) pen in the figurative (or literal) ink well and just put a few words together on paper. Sounds very simple. I think it actually is that simple- until you start to watch your career grow. A... Sign in to see full entry.

On Blogging

Oh, how my little blog has been neglected. I shuddered when I looked at the date of my last entry. Although I haven't been writing in my blogs, I have been busy earning a little green for my writing. I don't know what it is about writing in blogs that makes me think they should be at the bottom of... Sign in to see full entry.

My uncle lives in near the northern border of Italy in Dardago. After months of trying to decide how and when I am going to quit my job, pack my backpack and head out on the trip I've wanted to take my entire life, I finally have determined that Dardago will be my first stop. My first stop on a trip... Sign in to see full entry.

Cabo San Lucas Day 3 cont

The mixture of guilt and pure pleasure for being here is very confusing. Our condominium is expansive and modern. The floors are tile that look like marble, two large sliding glass doors that open out to a balcony- on the balcony a large, private jacuzzi. You can see the Sea of Cortez from our...

Cabo San Lucas Day 3

We arrived at our resort and were greeted by an army of Mexican men in crisp white uniforms. They were smiling, nodding, and grabbing our suitcases through of flurry of "Amigos" and "Buenos Tardes". Again I felt desperately overindulgent and unworthy of the ceremonious treatment that welcomed us to... Sign in to see full entry.

Time Share

I had my first experience with Timeshares today. My family and I are staying in beautiful Cabo San Lucas this week. My parents (certainly not wealthy, but perhaps middle to upper middle class) are the proud owners of five timeshares. Two of them are in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. This is my first visit,...
