Do or Die

Daily Prompt: You have three hundred words to justify the existence of your favorite person, place, or thing. Failure to convince will result in it vanishing without a trace. Go!

It is my refuge, my office, my sanctuary, my sanity.  Parked in my driveway or in a grove of oak trees next to a river, it is my younger years denied, the dolls and toys I never had, and the places I never experienced.  It is my first and second childhood.   I need only my computer, my books, my phone, some food, a couple of bottles of red wine and a full tank of gas.  Then I hook up my little Casita camper and go exploring for a safe place to reflect, refresh and rejuvenate my spirit.  My camper provides the freedom I crave to discover myself in new sights and sounds, to meet people and explore places I’ve spent a lifetime bypassing.

When I am ready to return to my beloveds, I am calm and eager to join them in our daily real world adventures.

  1. I am right there with you. Awesome! In love and light Cheryle


  2. So well written! Exactly! I was wondering had I made a mistake buying a car and trailer to go alone. I have a little home I love, why giving out most of my savings for camping? It is because I love it and if not now then when? I am feeling so much better reading your blogs! Thank you for posting, they are exactly what I need.


    • Thank you for your kind words. I need to catch up on blogging my last couple of adventures but I’m having too much fun. I hope you’re out there camping solo or with a friend. Enjoy your freedom.
