Headed to Baja, Mexico for the start of 2018, then Chicago, IL, and plans for Aruba, Peru, and Panama in April/May.
Completed a Shakespeare monologue class in Chicago with Susan Hart and Jeffrey Carlson. I’ve done a lot of Shakespeare training and performance and was curious if there were still items eluding me. The class gave me a great sense of confidence that I “know” enough; it’s more about practicing and executing it now (or as much as I like). Worked on a speech from the Bastard in King John. Mad world, indeed!
- Developing customized online solutions, including websites, membership sections and courses, and other online support for small businesses. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a project.
- Recording audiobooks for self-published authors, and articles for online writers.
- Continuing to run the Free Meditation Course—join now!
- eBook and audio versions of the Meditation Course (possibly in 2018).
- The Audiobook Club
- Shakespeare video project that helps kids (and others) understand the language (would love to revisit this, it’s just takes so much dang time to produce!):
- Brainstorming a guide to help retirees learn more about and earn the Southwest Companion Pass (to me, one of the best and possibly least known about airline perk)
- Developing small travel tours to Panama or Belize
The More Mundane
- Meditating daily (since 5/20/2010) and exercising regularly (Sworkit, tai chi, yoga, strength, flexibility, balance, inverted wall-assisted push-ups, and swimming).
- Getting back into reading: recently completed On the Move by Dr. Oliver Sacks and A Man Called Ove (really took me by surprise how much I enjoyed it). Follow my list here.
- Documentaries and Netflix: re-watching Frasier and, most recently, Cooked, and Chef’s Table. I also highly recommend The Great British Baking Show (delightful, beautiful, and engaging). Are you seeing a trend here? Other seasons recently completed: Westworld, Santa Clarita Diet, The Crown, and Master of None.
- Going to therapy weekly; started this back up in fall of 2014 after a break of 4 years (constant travel), then took about 16 months off since then—now back to it.
- Cooking. Lots of cooking, including baking bread. It’s actually one way I can really zone out and enjoy myself.
- Playing the ukulele.
My favorite food video right now
- Have plenty of ideas, but haven’t done anything lately with my original blog and travel site.
- Editing together videos for my healthy food/travel show (still looking at how to continue this).
- Looking to be the Healthy Houseguest
- Offering omg budget travel advice
- Coaching public speakers using Shakespeare’s advice
- Thinking of a travel hacking course (with a specific market in mind).
- Developing a possible game or app that helps you decide where to live or travel: NomadList is pretty close on this one.
- Doing “VA” (virtual assistant) work—I really enjoy more creative and longer-term projects.
