I love way too many things. Travel, and life in general, inspires me in writing, music and art.

When I’m not out wandering, my husband and I can be found in Austin, Texas, where I work in technology.


“Oh to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for thy courts above.”


  1. Bonjour Des amis m’ont offert une plaque métallique avec cette inscription ;
    I GOT MY KICKS ON……. en dessous se trouve le logo avec la mention Route 66. J’aimerai savoir ce que signifie cette phrase.
    Merci de votre réponse, countrysement vôtre ..MARY

    Hi Mary,
    Sorry, I can’t respond in French. 🙂 The quote “I got my kicks” is American slang from the 1950’s meaning “Having fun” or “To have a good time”. Some marketer probably came up with the slogan “I got my kicks on Route 66” because it rhymes in English. Hope that helps! 🙂
