Sidekicks and Sidecars

After the Writers’ Institute last week, Len and I rented a car and drove to Crown Point, Indiana to visit with dear friends. Along the way we saw the following sight: a man with his companion animal in the sidecar of his motorcycle. It’s hard to see in the photograph, but that’s not a muzzle on his dog; it’s straps to hold on his goggles. I love it!

Traveling companions

We smiled, waved, and laughed, as did other people in the cars around us. Clearly this traveling duo enjoy each other’s company—immensely. It was a real “feed good” moment to witness.

Len and I travel together well. Sometimes—especially when he flies—I’m in his “sidecar.” Other times, he’s in mine. Regardless, we always have a wonderful time.

Who frequents your sidecar?

Doors & Windows of San Miguel de Allende

During the month of November I’ll share photographs from my recent trip to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico where I was one of the speakers at the First Annual Wellness and Spirituality Expo.

While there, my heart was touched—particularly by the work of two non-profit organizations. The purpose of this first blog is to set the stage by asking:

What do you find when you open the door of your heart?
What do you see when you look through the windows of your soul?

Looking Ahead

Where have I been and where am I now? The answers to these questions are easy because I’ve already lived them. Ahhhh, but where am I going?

I want to go where I’ll have the greatest positive effect. Ideally, that place would be wherever I am at the time. Being in the right place at the right time, so to speak. Knowing–with a certainty–that wherever I am is precisely where I’m supposed to be. 

Listen with your heart,

The Destination

 

Arrival N Eleuthera Intl Airport by Laurie Buchanan

Arrival N Eleuthera Intl Airport by Laurie Buchanan

The wheels of the plane touched down on the runway; passenger bodies involuntarily thrust forward in our seats as the pilot screamed on the brakes—we arrived! As we carefully wedged ourselves into the narrow aisle of disembarking people and reached into the overhead bin for our suitcases, it occurred to me again that similar to luggage for a trip, many people carry baggage through life that weighs them down and makes the journey unpleasant and tiring.

My motto has always been, “Travel light, travel fast.” With that in mind, I determined early on that the only items I’ll carrying with me throughout life’s journey are things that bring a return value to the heart—things that benefit my body, mind and spirit with weightless dividends like love, health, wellness, joy, wisdom, integrity, peace, kindness, and laughter—definitely laughter!

Listen with your heart,
