Our theme music for our journey:
Terry and Maggie (Thelma and Louise – NOT!) are embarking on a road trip from ‘The Redwood Forests to the Gulf Stream Waters’, as immortalized in that great Woody Guthrie song, but in the spirit with which Sharon Jones sang it, God rest her soul! But rather than This Land Being My Land, or Your Land – we are in search of the Land that is OUR Land – that belongs to all of us, regardless of color, gender, age or creed. We’ll be sharing our thoughts and images of the people, places, and culture (food, music, art) that we will be taking in along the way…
We’ll be traveling through 7 of 11 North American ‘Nations’, according to Colin Woodworth’s analysis of 11 distinct cultural regions of the US – from The Left Coast, through the Far West, then El Norte, Greater Appalachia, on to the Deep South, and New France, then up to the Midlands, and back home again.

She recently interviewed us for her ‘blook’, The Way of Collage, for her series on Leap, Play, Love . Maggie and Terry are prepping for the spirit of the West by donning their cowgirl hats because it’s all about the attitude, Girlfriends!
Drop us a line, and give us a shout about ‘don’t-miss-this’ sights, eateries, and music on our journey.
