(Disclaimer: Original post written 12/2012). When I was growing up, mental illness was shunned. We did not talk about it in my household. The first time I was exposed to the mentally ill was when I visited my two aunts at their job. They were nurses in a mental hospital for chronic patients in Kentucky. As a young girl of 17, I was immediately drawn into the strangeness of this new world. ( Today a person would not be allowed to visit like I was able).

Travel blogging can be full of surprises. Readers, my recent trip to St. Augustine, Florida was a vacation spot you do not want to miss. It was quite a special experience seeing the oldest European city in the United States. I thought it would be fun to begin a blogging series of random photos and share of few interesting facts along the way.
I just got out of the hospital. I am learning not to advertise much of my life on social media, but we all still need to reach out for help. If any one knows me very good, they know I love watches. Here is a bit of my collection. I love swatches the most, but there is a Gucci in there somewhere.
Sofie just came hunting in my backyard. I see her, but she does not see me. I watch. I enjoy. Sofie went MIA after neighbors shot off obnoxiously loud fireworks July 4th. It is no surprise She went into hiding. She showed up a few weeks later in the postman’s arms to the delight of my heartbroken neighbors!
