The Torchlight Travel Blog

  Where I get to muse about my travels, such as they are....and write about some of the fun places I've visited, that you might want to visit, too. This page is a cornucopia of all I decide to add under the blog concept, in chronological order,but you will also find dedicated pages under the main blog button above.

  The primary Torchlight Travel Blog pieces you will find in the top right feed.

  Tales from the Treehouse is a concept I've been playing with while developing a travel diary with the editor of a Luxury Lifestyle and Travel Magazine I've been writing for, (as yet in development.) 

  You will also find excerpts from my book, Each Wind That Blows, and the "I Hadn't Really Lived Until..." is where I collect moments that mattered to me and others but maybe don't merit a full length story.What's yours? I want to know!(And you might win a book.)

Off the cusp that’s really cool and fun, but as was pointed out to me in a fashion tha...

A Word On Dryers and Lint Balls 

Dear Daniel,

Actually, I don’t have a literal treehouse yet, but I will someday soon, I'm told, and in the meantime, I have come to realize that both my home in the US and my borrowed cottage here do a fine impersonation of a treehouse, s...
