It's been a few months! I'm enjoying getting settled into my new home in California, reflecting on months past, and looking ahead to new things.

A final day in Grand Canyon, a flat tire in the middle of nowhere, and a whirlwind tour of five Utah National Parks in just two days. I tell you that Arizona and Utah should be called "The land of canyons". Utah alone I could have explored for a few weeks itself. Maybe another time.

The universe continues to produce. I've had some magical moments this week. I saw a psychic, took a risk, asked questions, and it all paid off. Letting go works. Doing things outside your comfort zone works. Oh right, and the GRAND CANYON! Click on through for the full story.
