Time to get moving

Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs

Ah, the writer’s life. Hours slip away while sitting in a desk chair in front of a glowing screen. Then its off to find a wayward address while fighting traffic behind the wheel to get to a program or presentation book event. Gears shift again as the holidays loom and linger, allowing attention to divert to family and feast.

It is also time to get moving. When the body feels sluggish, a walk in a beautiful park or a cemetery sounds inviting. Better yet, an outing can be combined with research. Small history museum’s continue to surprise me with the treasures they display. The latest happy discovery was the El Pomar Carriage Museum near the Broadmoor grounds in Colorado Springs. After a meeting, I stopped by to study historic vehicles and carriages, to learn, and to clear my head. It was outstanding. So much to see, so little time. What a gift to myself during the holidays. This is the finest display of vehicles and carriages I have seen south of Cheyenne’s Frontier Days Museum.
