Second Half Quartet at Memphis Quartet Show

The stage was dim and darkness flooded the rows of seats closest to the stage.  Hanging above the center of the stage, one word hung illuminated in shamrock green – Memphis.  I had not attended The Memphis Quartet Show in 2015 and did not have plans to go this year either, but special circumstances allowed…

Sea Days

The murky water below churned as the ms Paradise glided through the dark waves.  Along the horizon, the sky and water only had one color.  Black.  It was just after six o’clock in the morning and I was determined to see that orange ball pop over the horizon on Tuesday.  Being early in the week,…

Ahoy Mates! Paradise Is Waiting…

The elevator “dinged,” the doors slid open and my sister and I walked into the bustling lobby of our hotel filled with cruise passengers.  Lining the walls and keeping a hand on their carry-on bags, people waited for their shuttle to take them to the cruise terminal.  If you go on the Singing at Sea…

Coba – Mayan Ruins

Cozumel is Mexico’s largest island and the second port of call on our cruise to the Western Caribbean, but when our ship docked, we had no intention of exploring the island.  At least, not this year. In fact, we didn’t even walk to the end of the pier. Just on the other side of our…

Grand Cayman

I stood on the deck of the ms. Paradise and watched Georgetown, Grand Cayman come into view.  Other cruise ships were already anchored in the blue waters closer to the island, and soon, ours would join them so we could be ferried from the vessel to shore.  The sun beat down on me as I…

Summer of the Midnight Sun by Tracie Peterson

I don’t know about you, but I love a good spin-off series.  Every story has an end, but when an author takes the people around the main character in one book/series and develops their own story in another, we get to enjoy the characters we’ve grown to love a little longer. Recently, I finished reading…

Book Review – Moby Dick…or The White Whale

Moby Dick.  What was I thinking?  To be honest, I wanted to see the movie “In The Heart Of The Sea” and thought it would be cool to read the book first.  The books are always better, right?  Well, it took me over 30 days to finish reading this classic piece of literature after I…
