Making the Familiar New

I’m no stranger to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It’s one of my favorite places in New York. Yet a recent visit made me feel like I was in an unfamiliar place. How wonderful. Typically I go with one of my friends and we choose a specific exhibit we want to see. The current popular ones are about Cubism and, in the fashion arena, “Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire.” While both were interesting, we didn’t linger in either because we weren’t compelled to dwell or immerse. Instead, we wound up playing and wandering. We floated and flitted

J is for Jobs

One thing we love about Airstreams is that they allow us to live the life of our dreams! Whether you use your Airstream for family vacations, camping trips with friends or for cross-country adventures, everyone in the Airstream family can agree that a Live Riveted life is the best. We love getting to hear stories of how people live, play and even work in their Airstreams. People nowadays are truly embracing the Live Riveted lifestyle and aren’t just living full time in their Airstreams, but working in them as well!

You may remember earlier this month when we introduced you to Ramona Creel. Like we mentioned, she’ll be sharing her Airstream experiences and organization tips with us to live the best Live Riveted lives we can!

Adventures in a Little-Box Lifestyle

Rolling around the aisles of big-box stores has become a norm in America, but it is not my norm. Not by a long shot. I live in an urban environment where not only would I have no way of getting most of the “big” boxes home, I wouldn’t have anywhere to store them if I did. This is why putting me in one of those stores with my mother in her sprawling suburban area can be the perfect setting for an adventure bordering on a sitcom. The 52-year-old free spirit writer and the 77-year-old feisty retiree. “Yes, Mom, those are

Living Right Now

Once recent afternoon I walked the two blocks to my waterfront park for a work break. The Hudson River beckons most days and I strive to never take it for granted. I work from home and try to always step away from the computer after a particularly long stretch of writing, researching or coaching. It’s autumn in the Northeast and this was one of those gray days where it never rained even though it looked like it might; the sun was trying to peek through the clouds. I grabbed my recently acquired volume of the Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson

Life On The Road: Josh Rogan Part 2

Yesterday we kicked off our two-part blog post on Josh Rogan, Americana, Blues and Rock-N-Roll musician who is traveling the country and playing gigs in their 1962 Safari. Today we’re excited to hear a bit more from him about his adventures:  What has been your favorite part of the tour? My favorite part of any tour is when I can slow down enough in a town where I’m playing and enjoy our surroundings. And there is no doubt that the trailer makes that possible. In the mornings we make our favorite cup of coffee and look out the window of the
