BLC28 is almost here! (May 12th) Yay!!!
I have been SO out of the groove since I fell out of BLC27 due to medical issues.

Twelve weeks ago, BLC26 began and I got to be a part of it.
The Blue Lion Trackers welcomed me to their team, and at first all the chatter was intimidating. But within a week or so, I was chatting right along with the others, and we were be... Read more
There are couple of places I'd like to go for my new virtual walk:
1) Fallingwater, as mentioned before, about 90 miles outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
2) Art Prize 2015, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
