Random thoughts while kayaking

September 16, 2020

Kayaking is my “happy place” these days. When we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. We were out the other day and even though it was a cloudy, cool day, it was still good. There was some sunshine in the distance so I was going to write a deep, serious blog post […]

Summer is here – yay!

The lazy days of summer are upon us. I got to thinking about the summer and how I love it. I am ever more appreciative this year because of everything that is going on. Here’s why I love summer: 1. Many hours of daylight. I am a morning person and I love to exercise in […]

So our dear Mr. Ken managed to really hurt his shoulder, so we have to take a rest from kayaking for a while. We are both bummed since when we are out on the water, life seems almost normal. But, better to be safe than sorry. Since we are still sheltering at home, there is […]

I am happy since we got to go out kayaking last weekend. It was a glorious sunny day, with perfect temperatures. Kayakying is always my “happy place,” but it is especially so this year. When I’m out on the water, life seems almost normal. There are no worries about coronavirus or anything else. We saw […]

It’s that time of year again and boy am I ready for it. It’s kayaking time! We store our kayaks (all 4 of them) in the basement over the winter. It is quite the production getting them up the bulk head and into the garage. Hah, it seems to get harder and harder each year. […]

Now that I am semi-retired, I have a lot more time on my hands for reflection.  My latest thoughts are around inspiration. As most of you know, I am very involved in my grad school alumni volunteer organization, HBS CAP.  We do pro-bono consulting for Boston area non-profits. During June and July we are busy […]

Where is your happy place?

For me, that’s easy.  It’s out kayaking.  I could be having the most stressful day on the planet, but when I get out on the water in my kayak, it all goes away.  I am just enjoying the fresh air, the way my boat smoothly glides through the water and all the wildlife. I am […]

All ready to go!

It is that time of year again, when we bring up our kayaks. I look forward to this all winter. We store our kayaks in the basement and have to bring them up through the bulkhead. The bulkhead is at a very awkward angle, so it is always a challenge to bring them up without […]

It is time for a vacation

August 1, 2018

I had an “aha” moment this summer: “Vacation, for me, is just as much a state of mind as a state of place.” We normally don’t go away in the summer; I don’t like the crowds. It can be fun to stick close to home. Our town is deserted since most folks go away. These […]
