(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.

In order:

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.
