About Me

I am a writer and artist with the soul of a swing-dancing Pony Express rider. Interests include consumerism, classic films, environmental issues, scent-free living, health, science, writing, and robots. My blog reflects exploration in word and image. I can’t promise how often I will or won't post. 2017 explores identity and boundaries beginning with nature vs. man.

My Writer's Bucket List: Travel-Writing Wings On!

I'm spreading my writer-ly wings. Here is my first travel-writing piece! 

Point Reyes National Seashore is one of my favorite places and has captured a piece of my heart. I'm so glad I can share a little about this area just north of San Francisco, California. Somehow a little bit of spooky seems to get into my writing. That's what happens when kids read Edgar Allan Poe... possibly too young.

  1. What a fascinating travel piece! I felt as if I were there in every aspect. Gorgeous photos of the sites. This may be your first travel piece, Alonna, but it won't be your last. (Tell Stephen that's not fair. A silhouette of his back? C'mon. We want more.)

  2. Thanks, Carol. I wish I could step right into those photos. I do miss the seashore.
    And... sometimes models don't cooperate. ;)

  3. Have you ever visited Indonesia? There are a lot of beautiful places there. The culture. The nature as well. I bet you'll get a lot of writing ideas there. :)

  4. Hi, Brahm! Thanks for the suggestion. Indonesia is on my list of places I want to visit. I can imagine it is a very inspirational place.

  5. Alonna, congrats on your book! Point Reyes is so special. Check out a fun summer stewardship activity: 2013 Point Reyes Trails Challenge http://www.ptreyes.org/pointreyestrailschallenge2013.shtml

  6. Thanks, Jessa! The Point Reyes summer hiking challenge looks like great fun and a wonderful way to support the seashore. Thanks for sharing the link.
