Just as it says, this is an attempt at resurrecting the ol’ tumblr.  Also, my Twitter is a zombie.  (And look how jaunty that new Twitter layout is?  Doesn’t it make you smile?  Death did it well, eh?)  Thanks to my pal Courtney for the encouragement!

Since last you read, Traveler was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by the lovely editorial staff over at decomP magazinE.  A huge, humble thank you for the honor.  Also, a shout out to the incredible Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz for the same nomination!  Good luck, girl!  (Not that you need it!)  And here’s her piece in decomP.

And, just for kicks, the last few books I read: Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (Mindy Kaling), Tranquilista: Mastering the Art of Enlightened Work and Mindful Play (Kimberly Wilson), Hip Tranquil Chick: A Guide to Yoga On and Off the Mat (Kimberly Wilson, currently reading).  

Self-help kick?  I suppose so.  But I highly recommend Mindy’s book, which I borrowed from the library (gasp!) and now must purchase because I love it. 

And the other two, well, if you’re into yoga and/or need some balance and tranquility, they’re not bad.  I’ve subscribed to Kimberly’s (free) podcast, Tranquility du Jour, and subscribed to her (not free) Tranquilologie podcast.  If nothing else, it inspired me to start free yoga classes at the campus rec center, which can’t hurt, right?

Also, recently into WhiteHotTruth pretty hardcore.  

New motto: try it.  If you don’t like it, stop.
