Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia

Highlights of my Week in Sydney Australia My trip to Australia was ten years in the making.  In December 2006, I had a plane ticket to Sydney.  I canceled it because I felt overwhelmed with the planning process and I was only going to stay for two weeks.  I realized it wouldn’t have been enough time.  This will be the first of several posts and photos of my 4...

Goodbye 2016 – My end of year review.

Goodbye 2016.  2016 is one year that I am glad is over.  There were some highs and a whole lot of lows. I use to believe that how you start the first day of the year is a sign of how the rest of the year will go.  The first day of 2016 I was sick from treatment, but I was with someone I cared about, and I felt optimistic about the future.  It wasn’t a good sign...

Today is My Cancerversary!

Today is my Cancerversary.  I can’t believe it’s been a year already.  November 4, 2015, was the day I got the call.

The...

Highlights from my trip to Rome Italy

Highlights from my trip to Rome Italy I instantly feel in love with Rome.  I love the streets.  I loved the food.  I loved the history.  I thought to myself; I could live here.  So many of the streets remind me of being back in New York.  I can’t believe I only had five days.  I didn’t go to any other city in Italy.  Just Rome. And I’m glad I...

Seattle Wishing Chair – Do Wishes Come True?

Seattle Wishing Chair – Do Wishes Come True? On my first day in Seattle, I took an Argosy 3 hour cruise on the Puget Sound.  I was able to see the city and get suggestions of things to do.  Now everybody knows about the views on top of the Space Needle, but the guide suggested to go to the observation deck of the Smith Tower.    Not only is this building known...
