Hoarders, Maria Kondo, and The Home Edit // Inspiration For You to Declutter and Organize

Throw in a couple episodes of “Hoarders,” and you too will be tearing your home apart!

My First Published Sailing Article // Kim Goes Foreign // 1975 Bahamas Trip

In grade school, I was staff on every school newspaper through high school. I’ve always liked to write, and in 1977, I submitted an article about cruising the Bahamas to the sailing giant magazine “Cruising World.” They published it, and a lifetime of writing has followed. At the time I wrote it, I was eight years old. This year marks 45 years of writing for me, and I still love it. For fun, here’s that early article, my “Throwback Thursday.”

Your Cycling Helmet Can Call For Help // Specialized ANGi and Road ID

The past couple months of working from home has allowed me to venture out on my own for some cycling. Usually I ride with my husband, so I wanted a way to alert him and family if I were struck on my bicycle.

Increased Cycling Speed and Distance Goals // Kicking It Up a Gear During the Pandemic // Necessary Tools

As the Covid Pandemic descended, my cycling partner and I halted all road cycling. Our thinking was that our need for exercise was less crucial than the need to keep health workers safe. If we became injured; we would put a burden on the system as well as potentially expose ourselves. However, I wanted to work on increased cycling speed and distance goals. For three months, we eschewed cycling. I think part of the avoidance was simply depression. We didn’t run, cycle, or do much involving power tools. Anything potentially dangerous, we avoided. Well, we reconsidered, weighed concerns, and we are back on the road now with increased cycling speed and distance goals.

Visiting Cuba // The Island of Doors // Beyond the Tourists

Just the word almost gives me chills – an island, the one island where I could not go. I have flown over it, sailed past it, cruised near it but never set foot on it. I was never free to openly visit. It seemed that door was closed, legally to me, until 2016. Actually, there were other doorways that could have led me to that door; flying through the Bahamas or Panama, but I chose to wait until it was legal. When I finally arrived, I sobbed.
