May 20, 2016 marks the beginning of a new chapter –
This was the road out of town on that Friday afternoon.
I’m still not sure what my next adventure looks like, but sometimes, you just have to make the leap and hope to land on your feet… um, right?
As scary as it is, I know that it is time to move on.
“To see the change, you have to be the change.”
(Or… something like that)
After all, life is a Vagarious Voyage…

In a stroke of incredible luck, I got a two-day beach vacation!
The best part — being surrounded by people that were there to have fun.
Smiles! Positive Attitudes! Goofing off!
It was a not-so-subtle reminder that my mood has been sliding a slippery slope – down, down, down….
I think some of that has been absorbed from some of the people around me.
Some of that is my own head-game.
Some of it is expectations that I have for myself and a (possibly?) unreasonable lack of patience for “achieving” greater goals…
But, in a beautiful New Year cliché, I’m going to do my best to hold on to the sunshine… both internally – my own mood, and externally – expressing gratitude and openness.
It’s amazing what a smile and a “hello” can do!
Here’s to the beach! Here’s to the sun! Here’s to waking up and thinking, this day is the one!
Here’s to a rum drink and here’s to dancing on the roof! Here’s to believing in tomorrow, even without proof!
Here’s to a good morning! Here’s to a good week! Here is to the new year and reaching the next peak!
Racing away from open pits
Under Wyoming skies.
Carrying Black Coal, Pay Dirt, Energy… Racing,
