Dark Mornings and Culinary Stuff…

While the afternoons grow longer, mornings are still very dark and chilly, up here on the mountain. First strains of light begin to appear around 6:30. By that time, I’m already working. Not complaining, though. The job is helping me do the needed things. For those who have wondered about my culinary habits, I’ll let…

Back

Once again, it’s been a long time since I’ve written. This time, I’ll make no apology. It’s part of who I am, and I’m learning to accept that. The pics above are a little tour of my experience, so far. I’ve enjoyed it all, and cant wait to see what’s next. You may wonder what…

Mexican Magic…

Here in Colorado, like every other state in the Southwest, there is an abundance of Mexican restaurants. They are woven into our collective fabric. On a cold, snowy Colorado night, there’s nothing quite like a big steaming bowl of posole, except, perhaps, a plateful of freshly made tamales, or chilaquiles. These things are as much…

Vagabond Thoughts 2…

Just so you dont get the wrong idea, I want you to know that vagabonding isnt all fun. There are a lot of struggles, right now. One is just that it’s winter in the White River National Forest, and I wouldnt want to be anywhere else, but the snow is building up and temperatures are…

Good stuff…

This is Kara Artman. She’s an artist, showing her work in Spartanburg, South Carolina. I met her by chance at the Chapman Cultural  Center, which is across the street from Ciclops Cyderi and Brewery. That’s a good combination, in my estimation. The middle of December found me in Spartanburg. I’d gone to visit my daughter…

Frisco at Night…

A few nights ago, I spent an evening in Frisco, Colorado. Did some photography and had dinner at a place named Moose Jaw . I’ll tell you more about that in a minute. Frisco is a cool little town. It sits between Silverthorne, Keystone, and Breckenridge. I dig it because it isn’t really a tourist town….

All Quiet…

It’s been a time of busyness, and stillness, in my life. There isnt a lot going on, and days are pretty much the same. A trip to South Carolina is on the itinerary for this weekend. My daughter and her family are there. After that, I’m not sure what the plan might be. There’s always…

Inside the Stew Wagon…

In case you didnt know, VagabondStew has a YouTube channel (under the same name). There are several things there, but this is one of the most informative. If you’ve wondered about Maggie’s interior, and how I’ve set things up, this is the video to watch. Thanks for commenting, Liking and Sharing. ~Enjoy the Life you’re…

Fort Morgan

On a country road, it’s easier to be mindful and focus on the moment. I practiced, today, as I took a day trip to Fort Morgan, Colorado. Starting with my breathing, I slowed down, in and out deeply, several times. Afterward, I turned my attention to the road. As the lines moved toward and past…

VagabondStew Cover Photo…

Have you ever looked at the cover photo for this page? There’s a lot going on. It’s just one shot, not a composite, but look at the jumble of folks that are captured there. The obvious focal point is that guy with the rainbow bicycle. On the far left, though, is a group of young people…
