AUSTRALIA | Sun, 22 Mar 2020 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [215] | Comments [1]

Rocky Mountain High

USA | Wed, 13 May 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [184]

BLUE SKIES.  SEVENTY DEGREES.  CLEAR PINE-SCENTED AIR.  On a day like this Eldorado Mountain Open Space seems like the right place to channel our inner John Denver and maybe see a few birds.          ... Read more >


USA | Fri, 8 May 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [181]

The Company You Keep

USA | Fri, 24 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [160]

THE COVID NUMBERS ARE CLIMBING, LOCALLY, NATIONALLY and Worldwide. I’m not especially anxious nor overly concerned but I do check the new cases on the web every morning.  The odds are still very much in our favor — fewer than three ... Read more >

A Serpent in The Garden of the Gods

USA | Tue, 28 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [160]

The First Cut Is The Deepest

USA | Tue, 16 Jun 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [146]

Moving On Up

A very sad week

NEW ZEALAND | Tue, 24 Mar 2020 | By nomad_kiwis | Views [139]

Man Plans And God Laughs

USA | Fri, 17 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [138]

IN YIDDISH THEY SAY "MANN TRACT, UN GOTT LACHT."   Well She is certainly having a chuckle at the expense of all of us during this Covid pandemic.  It is sunny and 80°F on the Island of Hawaii where we planned to be .  Denver, where ... Read more >

Cowering in Colorado

USA | Tue, 14 Apr 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [137]

THE WINTERY WEATHER ON EASTER WEEKEND made “Cower-From-Covid” a little more palatable.  We did have to brave the cold Sunday morning and arrange for a new rental car.  Denver International Airport was deserted and I was pleasantly ... Read more >

AUSTRALIA | Fri, 31 Jan 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [131]

AUSSIE KIDS ARE BACK IN SCHOOL FROM THEIR Xmas/Summer vacation.  The sugarcane, ankle-high when we arrived, is now taller than I.  And the occasional rain showers have become a daily deluge.  We have been in Australia for ten weeks and ... Read more >


USA | Sun, 5 Jul 2020 | By graynomadsusa | Views [131]

WITH APOLOGIES TO "THE BOSS," we are bored out of my minds stuck here in the U.S.A.   We should have enough to keep us busy with surgeries and rehab, out-of-control Covid cases, racial discord, and a generally upgefucked political situation but ... Read more >

THAILAND | Mon, 9 Mar 2020 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [130]

Only two days left on this legendary Southeast Asian journey. It would only get more legendary today as I set out again toward Thailand. My plan was to stay two nights at Eddielin’s home but I opted to head back today to give myself a bit of a ... Read more >
