Turn on the Front Burner Edna, Something Needs Warming

Would help to shut the valve ;)
Something is percolating.
Lately I have been reading blogs voraciously. Some of which are inspiring and I will admit, intimidating. There are an army of bloggers out there who can make the hours of my day disappear as I read their secrets to pie crusts, tips on roasting chickens, ballroom dance gossip and latest fashion trends. I can't get enough. The variety is outstanding and dizzying. It's so engrossing that I forget to do laundry, call my mother, and I'm down to one meal a day.
I know I've been out of the game for a while so we'll see what becomes of this current obsession and idea-mill. To be continued...

Dominican Republic

I'm feeling some regret for deleting all my old postings about the Dominican Republic from this blog. Why did I do such a crazy thing? So I'm going to post a photo (taken by my sister, Alicia Chavier Caamano) here of my favorite place on earth. The Bahia de Las Aguilas in the Peninsula de Pedernales.  I am feeling a feverish homesickness this season because this is when I normally get ready to leave on assignment.   I keep looking for flight prices but this time I have no real plan for travel. Must find a reason. Press trip anyone?

One of the best reasons to go to the DR is dancing. Merengue (the national dance) and bachata (the naughtier sister dance) light the soul of the nation. You certainly cannot travel anywhere within the nation without hearing either of the tunes. If you vacation there, take a lesson in either or both. Baila. You will be changed for life. Trust me.
