You guys. Please don't tell my hotel but after the @elizabeth_gilbert_writer @marthabeckauthor #TrueMagic conference I just had to try and #bendaspoon. #postcardfromtheroad #phoenix #arizona Note to self: buy more spoons when I get home. #heyalexa...

Almost forgot to post this from before I hit the road a couple hours ago. Pulled off for a quick pit stop to indulge my guilty #roadtrip pleasure: @tacobell fiery #dorito #tacos and #mountaindew. I don't know what took us so long to put #doritodust on tacos.
Anyway, it's time to play the random roadtrip #questionoftheday game, kids!

Which long lost childhood object would you most like to find? Me: I had kinda forgotten about this till I read the question, but I used to have a baseball signed by the @reds
Including #PeteRose and #JoeMorgan and #joseconcepcion...the whole best team ever. Living in #Cincinnati it would be cool to have. I'd donate it to the Dragonfly Foundation to see how much it's worth these days.
What about you?

On the road. #homewardbound. Its been fun Charleston. Can't wait till next time. Already missing my sister @jbfreshphoto. Here's one more #haiku for the road in my sister's challenge to write a haiku a day while I was in town getting my #sistertime #soulrx
#sisterfix.
The Unexpected

Juxtaposition
Reveals unexpected truths
--Truer than labels.

#postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina #haiku Haiku #8. #haikuaday #challengeaccepted #overachiever

Last day in Charleston. Always hard to leave my baby sister @jbfreshphoto. But I gotta hit the road tomo morning so I can catch #tarathewondertoddler's first #easteregghunt! But first, one more haiku as part of my sister's haiku a day #challengeaccepted while I'm here. Haiku #7.

Current Situation.

Sunny with a high
Of seventy-three. Sipping
Coffee and sunshine.

Surrounded, grounded
By a sympony of sounds--
Tibetan bells and

Wind chimes and rustling
Leaves and pencil on paper
And my coffee breathe.

Haiku #6 in my sister @jbfreshphoto's #haikuaday

Mirror, Mirror

Who wore it better?
--that cloud bling. The sky above
Or the sea below?

Haiku #5 in my sister, @jbfreshphoto's #challengeaccepted to #amwriting a #haikuaday while I'm visiting her.

Later Gator

Why lines in the sand
Don't work like a circle: I
Lived to tell this tale.

Haiku #4 in my sister, @jbfreshphoto's, #challengeaccepted for me to #amwriting a #haikuaday while I am visiting her. #sistertime #follyfound #soulrx #postcardfromtheroad #jamesisland #charleston #southcarolina
The Fine Art of Grace

Windows are cracks that
Let the light in; also out.
Embrace the shadows

Like a broken jar
Of clay grasps gold--becomes art.
Transcendence. No man's

Trash. Behold beauty.
Draw the curtains...draw bridges...
Draw windows not walls.

My sister @jbfreshphoto challenged me to a #haikuaday the other day. This is #haiku #3. Dedicated to my sweet mini me Maya. This pic showed up in my memories yesterday. The last time I saw her when I visited her at @stjude a year ago before she earned her rest. Damn I miss that sweet little bean. I don't know if you can read her t-shirt but it says "Got Courage?" Hell to the YES. She did. It's one of the best lessons I learned from her. #MAYASTRONG #fuckcancer #postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina #haiku #challengeaccepted #becausetheworldneedsmorepoetry
Magic Bean
(For Maya)

Yesterday. Last year.
I rubbed the most magic bean--
Gave some TLC.

Sometimes it's all we
Can Do: Get up & Lace up.
Show up. Step up. Lift

Up. Never Ever
Give Up. Grief: The shirt that says
We've been there done that.

Pink

Azaleas wear it
Better. Than October--that
Time when pink feels like

A scarlet letter
On my bare chest. Or a
Target on my back.

Cancer is cancer.
Mine doesn't make me lucky
Or pretty in pink.

#postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina #haiku #becausetheworldneedsmorepoetry Also because my sister challenged me to write a haiku a day while I'm here. This was haiku #2.

Current situation. #amwriting underneath the magnolia tree. Working on chapter 8 for those of you keeping track. Not a bad gig. Sunny with a high of 72. #thisweatherdontsuck #luckyme #kissmeimirish #happystpatricksday #postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina #sistertime #soulrx

The coffee cup I like to drink out of when I visit my baby sister @jbfreshphoto brings back sweet memories of the #redheads when they were littles #myheart #swoon #postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina

Tonite's #sunset outside my sister @jbfreshphoto's home. Not a bad show, Charleston! Whatcha trying to do to me? Youre wooing is working. #postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina

Oops. Meant to snap a pic of my beloved @smokyoak #cuban #sammich... but it's in my belly already. #postcardfromtheroad #charleston #southcarolina Always hafta pay my respects here when I'm in town. #happybelly

This oughta be a fun #roadtrip #questionoftheday. Yep. Hitting the road again but this time I'm heading SOUTH to #charleston to visit my baby sister @jbfreshphoto #postcardfromtheroad #charlestonorbust #follybound So... have you ever had an experience that led you t okk believe in angels or ghosts? I'll post mine in the comments when I take a break driving.

Grabbing some #sushisunday vibes then hitting the road back home to Ohio. Didn't quite make it to #kripalu cuz the #blizzard2018 shut down the roads down and we got stranded, luckily at an italian restaurat in greentown, PA which literally saved our lives cuz they took us and a whole band of fellow stranded travelers in. We were lucky to find refuge like that. Not everybody did. Yesterday when they finally opened the roads we backtracked to Scranton to check into a hotel to get a good night's sleep-after 2 days of no sleep, trying to get to #kripaluorbust-which uncharacteristically for me, ended up in a big bust #breastcancerhumor. So disappointed BEYOND WORDS that i didnt get to see my #kripsisters4ever and share somethimg so special to me with my sweet Amanda. But. We made the best of our foiled girls weekend away to kripalu that was supposed to he my sweet Amanda's bday present. We hit the hot tub, then the movie theatre next to the hotel, watched 3 movies and ate a large popcorn #gilmoregirls style withcocolate covered raisins. And don't tell anybody but we snuck in wine. Anyway, we didn't let the blizzard rain on our parade and the skies are blue today so there it is what it is. Now for today's random table topics roadtrip question of the day! Which celebrity would you most like to see in person? Me: Alicia Keys. I wanna hang out with Alicia Keys. I wanna be in a writer's room on some show with Tina Fey and Amy Polar and Mindy Kaling. Amanda: I would have liked to hang out with Lloyd Alexander before he died. If that counts? And JK Rowling. oh! Shigeru Miyamoto would be up there too... My tops are the creators of my favorite worlds, BUT if I keep it Oscar themed... maybe Natalie Portman or Emma Watson or Kristen Bell? They all seem down to earth and incredibly kind and brilliant.
You? #postcardfromtheroad #homewardbound #tabletopics
