Finding Our Own Adventure on Day One and Two

2 Jan

Signs from the universe are usually incognito for me, and I have to be a secret agent in order to discover a clue or what’s in store.

But not today.

When I saw this … I knew I had found my theme for 2016.


Yup…Big Magic happening this year.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still on the quest for The Juice, finding pockets of it, keeping it, defending it, relishing in it, and maintaining it. This just added another level.

Whether I’m in the Great Outdoors, reading a book, watching a movie, writing my stories, parenting the crap out of parenthood, or hanging out with friends, I’m gonna find Big Magic, My Juice, Adventure in the year of Guat Flawsomeness, with stubbornness, humor, and gratitude. It’s gonna happen.

Now being that New Year’s Eve was the mark of endings and new beginnings I set out on a quest for all these things, not even knowing I had begun the journey. And even if New Year’s wasn’t filled millions of people, rock stars, and Times Square it was filled with an electric vibe and  adventure energy. I set a date with the most important people in my life … my kids. And we rang in the New Year with love, great food, and memories.

But it didn’t just stop there, it continued onto Day Two. And that surprised the hell out of me. Usually good vibes only last 24 hours before someone tries to take my juice away, but it was all good.

The Juice and The Adventure Seeking stayed in tact.

I was on a Buen Camino … Here’s hoping you are too.



We started off with an amazing light show, with disco balls and music under the moonlight.



Electric snowflakes in the Southern California sky.



We watched magic storytellers illuminate the sky.



This one was my favorite … made me feel like I had The Juice, and the adventures were unlimited.



Feeling some love and strength in 2016.



Loving the Easy Rider vibe.



This looked like a guy who had found his adventures and loved them. I want me some patches like that.



Star Wars was everywhere. This one was out of this world … and my son’s favorite..



This one reminded me of my beloved Pinta … definitely missing my puppy.



Brought out the history buff in me.



Los Angeles sports fans definitely enjoyed this spectacular float. Swoosh!



Then we headed home, like this Fearless Flyer, ready for another adventure.

    You weren’t kidding about that light show, Holy Pink Floyd!

    And you mean to tell me your mojo went into overtime? That is a great sign for 2016, no doubt about it. And look! Your good vibes traveled all the way to Denver where your boy got back and now, it seems, is gonna be piloting the Broncos once again. Yeah, I remember your Peyton Manning post, quite well.

    You are all that and a bag of chips. (I’m partial to plantain).

      Duuuuude it was a Pink Floyd trip! And you’re right, my mojo was in full effect. I was really enjoying the two-day streak. Plus the fact that my boy came in and handled his business duuuuuude it was like a trifecta of mojo.
