I began this blog for my mother and it was a mish-mash of my daily life. Quickly, however, I realized she wasn’t reading it — so I changed the name and shifted direction. Now I am continuing writing in this space for all things travel: basics and tips; reviews; and profiles of the places I go, people I meet, and the art and performances I see. I enjoy weaving historical or cultural significance into my work and I use credible sources, but I’m not an expert in either of these fields; so I encourage others to contribute knowledge, sources, or information in the comments.
Drifting Softly describes my ideal state during travel: causal journeying; moving at a pace that I can enjoy the scenes unfolding around me; when, for better or worse, I can experience every moment with ease and grace. In all the movement and change that characterizes travel, I am happiest when I am drifting softly.
I have reached my utmost goal when a reader has gleaned something from my writing – whether they are inspired, motivated, educated, entertained, or find my prose even remotely poetic.
When I’m not adventuring, I’m juicing and cooking with the pulp. Check out my Juice and Juice Pulp blog by clicking here.
