Playgrounds come in all shapes, sizes, and materials. Some are in sunny locations, others are hidden within the shadows of surrounding trees. A visit to one park led to the visit of another park, and this write-up summarizes the mental notes taken (okay…at least those mental notes I can remember 😉 ).

Yes, I did write about this in 2019.
Yes, it did involve an actual obstacle course (for kids).
Yes, it was fun to watch the gkids run around and try to beat each other’s time.
Yes, I am done writing these “Yes” statements. Continue reading “Overcoming Obstacles – 2020 Edition”
A brief (or permanent?) interlude while the mind recovers from all of the attempts and self-imposed pressures of posting thoughts and reflections.
The domain and this material will remain for a while (after all it’s already paid for it) but new material may only appear…well, nowhere on-line.
Well, let’s just say life hands us new challenges…ones that require more attention and therefore pull us away.
And so, though I am still writing…short-ish stories…I will not feel the pressure to post new material.
Basically, I’m putting my Shoes On A Rail as far as these on-line postings are concerned.
When or if I return, I will ensure this site has an operable subscription link.
But for now…

So it’s been a busy time already. People are using the year 2020 to express their hopes this year will be filled with 20/20 Vision plans: where people can get back on track and have a real vision for their future. Continue reading “One Month Down Eleven To Go!”
“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously. And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is amazing how I can go through a year being busy, being frustrated, being excited, being tired…and not take a moment to sit quietly and express any gratitude for the time I share with others. Continue reading “Adventure Gratitude Moment”
It’s been a few weeks since my last writing. Life has a way of interrupting the best of intentions. Between illnesses, hospital visits, trips, travails, time with friends & family, and other events, time slipped away between posts. I have started a couple but they are waiting for my “final” thoughts to wrap them up…that or no thoughts and a full closure (hmmm, another life metaphor?).
So today is a note about “keep moving” (an active version of “don’t stop moving”) and a short write-up on one of the days’ activities. Continue reading “Don’t Stop Moving”
The thermometer read over 90 dF so what was the brilliant plan for an adventure day? Miniature golf, of course! Out under the blazing blue sky of North Carolina sans any wind is perfect for standing still and just putting a round or two of golf, right? Continue reading “Landing in Adventure”
This was a busy week. We managed to enact a bunch of verbs: climbing, fishing, casting, spinning, swinging, acting, singing, dancing, playing, riding, casting and teaching to mention a few. Continue reading “The Verbs”
As our family comes into celebration week, named such due to the number of birthday and anniversary events during this 7-day period, I realized I had missed writing about several outings and was remiss in getting them put together. So here are several brief adventure highlights, comments and tips (making it a really long writing!) without any attraction note summaries but perhaps with some typos 😉 .
