  Yesterday I was whining to myself about not having anything special for my Christmas Eve blog. Nothing cool like this video from Quinhagak, Alaska. Nothing remotely interesting like this light show on the side of a building across from Rockefeller Center in New York City that entranced me on a Christmas Eve walk down [...]

Why you don’t need to be afraid http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/08/why-you-dont-need-to-be-afraid/ http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/08/why-you-dont-need-to-be-afraid/#comments Sun, 11 Aug 2013 22:22:52 +0000 http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/?p=3742

As for you do not seek what you are to eat and what you are to drink. Do not worry anymore. Luke 12: 29 It’s not unheard-of to walk away from normal life, sell your stuff, and travel. People do it. More people do it than you may think. But only two people whom I [...]

Peace Pilgrim–extraordinary wanderer http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/08/peace-pilgrim-extraordinary-wanderer/ http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/08/peace-pilgrim-extraordinary-wanderer/#comments Fri, 02 Aug 2013 20:55:25 +0000 http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/?p=3726

For almost 30 years, Peace Pilgrim traveled on foot with everything she owned in her pockets--a toothbrush, comb, a pencil. No backpack, no food, no shelter, no fancy performance wear.

My run-in with the Mexican police http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/05/my-run-in-with-the-mexican-police/ http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2013/05/my-run-in-with-the-mexican-police/#comments Fri, 03 May 2013 01:12:39 +0000 http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/?p=3140

  This week, I’m interrupting our romp through Newfoundland for a little story that was prompted by this post from a well-known travel blogger. These folks are living in Mexico, and were stopped several times by the police for what they thought was la mordida –the little bribery “bite.” You can read their story on [...]

St. Anne’s Lobster Supper–and Some Fairy Dust http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2012/12/st-annes-lobster-supper-and-some-fairy-dust/ http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2012/12/st-annes-lobster-supper-and-some-fairy-dust/#comments Sat, 22 Dec 2012 00:00:39 +0000 http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/?p=2869

  I woke up in a dark mood this morning for no particular reason. In fact, I have every reason in the world to be joyful and grateful. But sometimes the neurotransmitters don’t get the memo. So, before noon the universe—or “grace” as I prefer to call it—had given me a nudge in the form [...]

  It’s been a long time since I’ve posted. This wasn’t my plan, but then, what in life goes according to plan? After returning in September from my trip to the Canadian maritimes that I’ve been telling you about, I had intended to move into my “home base” and have all kinds of time to [...]

  I am shouldering my way through the Christmas Market at the tony Columbus Circle in Manhattan where the well-to-do, if not the rich and famous shop. The crowds are thick, and the shoulders are fierce. I am in my nearsighted Mr. Magoo MO, bumbling, stumbling, uncertain. Until I am brought up short by what [...]

Patagonia: Black Friday done right http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2011/11/patagonia-black-friday-done-right/ http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/2011/11/patagonia-black-friday-done-right/#comments Wed, 30 Nov 2011 04:04:55 +0000 http://www.wanderingnotlost.org/?p=1662

  Ok. So this isn’t a post about travel, but it’s pretty cool anyway. The cynics among us might call this full-page ad in the New York Times a brilliant marketing ploy: combine a jot of reverse psychology with a dash of green, add a large dollop of ethical high road and voila, passionately loyal customers who [...]
