Cargo Literary Magazine – Review

I discovered this lovely site yesterday when I was doing some freelance work. This is an online magazine which “…focuses on narrative and growth through travel and exploration.” – Cargo Literary, About Us page first paragraph and first sentence.

That sentence right there, that part of the sentence actually, is what caught my attention. I’ve never heard of this kind of magazine before, but I don’t read many so, I could be wrong. Has anyone else seen or heard of this kind of magazine, online or in print?? This site offers up perspectives on personal growth through travel, at home and abroad which I think is fantastic!!

The current issue can be found at :https://www.cargoliterary.com

In this issue, there are three poems, two photo essays, a book review, two visual art submissions and three creative nonfiction works. All of these have something to do with personal growth and with travel. One of the photo essays is about the American West, and they are stunning!! The poetry is beautiful, especially the one by Marjory Woodfield called Thumairi Street. She evokes such imagery it’s almost as if I’m there!

I can’t wait for the next issue to come out so I can see what new things are offered!! Don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself!! Cargo Literary at : https://www.cargoliterary.com

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

Travel Inspiration

I have been having fun visiting the blogs of some of the travelers who have so nicely begun following my own blog though mine is not about traveling per se. Thank you all by the way, each and every one of you wonderfully talented and unique people who are following me! I wasn’t expecting such richness when I began my blog. It’s more me just writing what I want to share, or it was in the beginning. However, I digress. This post is about traveling.

Looking at all the pretty pictures and reading all the lovely stories has me inspired to do some writing. I can’t, obviously, go very far – thank my job mostly for that – but I do want to get out and do a bit of driving! I love to drive – just hit the road and go! Being the person I am, I can’t just go without a plan though. I need to find a place to go to, or a general vicinity. I had once planned just to go to a town about 20 miles away and for once, I decided to take a loop that was supposed to take me closer to where I wanted to go – in theory anyway. I took the wrong exit and ended up in little town I’d never been in before. Best thing to happen to me in a long time!! Their little cafe has the best buttermilk pie I have ever tasted and some of the best catfish in a non coastal town!

Again, I digress but only a little bit this time. My apologies.

As luck would have it, I have a three day weekend coming up this very weekend! I’ll be traveling to visit my gentleman friend and then, I plan to visit a town closer to home called Groveton. It’s a little town, but I’m hoping there’s a library so I can try to get some history on the place. I love visiting places, finding out their history and checking out any old architecture there might be about. I’m doing this on Monday so if there is a library, it’ll be open. It should be anyway, but you never know in a small town.

I’ll be taking pictures I promise! I’ll also be writing about the visit – no matter how it turns out.

All this because of the other travel writers here in my little corner of the blogsphere sharing their own travels with me! Thank you all so much!! I feel so excited and can’t wait to get going!!

King Arthur Virtual Race – Half Way!

I am now half way through my virtual walking race on Yes Fit! I’m logging in a little over a mile every day – mostly at work – and I log in my steps for the day when I get home from work. I’ve been looking at Google Map to see where I am along the route when it updates my progress. 🙂

Currently, my virtual self is on New Road in Boscastle, England. It looks like a lovely little town, and I’m putting it on my bucket list of places to see when I get my passport and can travel abroad. I’m also adding another town my virtual self has passed through called Crackington Haven.

I have 11 miles out of 23.2 left to go, and I’ll keep at it until I’ve gone all the way! My virtual self will be turning on right onto a road that should lead me all the way to Tintagel over the course of next week , week and a half. 🙂

This race has gotten me more active, and I’m feeling quite good about my progress. I actually want to get up and get moving more, and that’s good for my health. I hope this will encourage you to try something, anything, to get moving too. I get a medal once the race is complete – part of the price of the race, and I might order the shirt too. I haven’t decided on that yet. 🙂

I hope everyone has a wonderful evening, what’s left of it, and I’ll see you on the flipside. Don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!!

A sneak peak! — One Chance to See the World

It’s the weekend! I wanted to do a post that will start the New Year as I hope to end it. With blogging. Lots of blogging. But in particular this update will focus on another platform, the beast that is Instagram. Don’t worry if you don’t use it as I will remain on WordPress when […]

Pinterest – Obsessive Much?

Yes, I have a Pinterest existence.  I have about a dozen boards, at last count, and they all have at least 5 pins.  Many have lots, lots more.

I just spent the last 30 minutes on Pinterest adding pins mostly to my Travel, Genealogy Research, Cats and Business Development boards.  I think I added at least a dozen pins to each board and would’ve continued had I not forced myself to leave the site!

I can’t seem to help myself!  I get on just to check out a couple of things or to try a pin, and I end up spending anywhere from 15 minutes to an entire hour choosing pins to save, looking at the boards of people I follow and making a short list of pins to try!

Obessed? Could be.  Still, I’ve found a lot of useful information using Pinterest so this is one obsession I’m not going to quit anytime soon. 🙂

See you all on the flipside and don’t forget your towels and sonic screwdrivers!
