(For the past 5 years I have used the same journal prompts in December for my personal blog Hurry Slowly. Inspired by the #Reverb10 prompts, I have kept the best and added a few of my own. Interestingly enough, I have 22 favorite prompts, and they match up nicely with the Major Arcana, so this year I’ve decided to call it #TrumpTheYear.)
THE CHARIOT. Where did you go this year?
First, this proves I go to way too many conferences. Also, it is also an illustration that I am an awesome packer as I’m 99% sure I checked no bags this year. Even for the week in Hawaii or the week in Boston.
Los Angeles as a tourist with friends for New Year’s. The Getty Villa! It was awesome.
North Carolina. A snowstorm hit. All of 2 inches shut the state down and I almost didn’t make it out.
Oregon wine country. I didn’t want to leave.
Maui for vacation on saved-up points. Might not go back.
Glamorous Reno, Nevada for a conference. Smoky and depressing, despite the company.
Palm Springs, CA for a party.
Pacific Northwest for a conference. A great one I’d never been to before.
Boston, Mass for a conference. A terrible one I wish I’d never gone to.
Colorado to see family and make sure my elderly parents were ok.
Yosemite High Sierra Camps! And then a suite in Mammoth to take a real shower. Ok, three showers in a row.
Oakland, CA to see friends.
San Jose, CA for BATS.
An island off the coast of CA with lots of teenagers, no running water and no cell service.
Lehigh Valley, PA for a conference.
San Diego for a conference.
Portland, OR for a romantic weekend.
Bellingham,WA for his marathon.
Wrightwood, CA for a romantic weekend and doomed house-hunting.
Colorado to see family for Turkey Day.
Bellingham, WA for Christmas.
