Amtrak Residency

I applied.  In the past, I have sailed on cruise ships for the express purpose of finishing short stories and novels in a new environment.  My favorite "writing room" rocks and rolls but provides a cozy escape with a port to the Caribbean, sea breezes and healthy food.  I write up a storm discovering new faces on deck and on shore.

The Amtrak residency was a writer's idea that took off on Twitter and led Amtrak's social media department to offer 24 long-haul residencies t...

Writing retreat that rocks and rolls

Posted by dkchristi on March 22, 2013 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (0)

At least once a year, I packed up my netbook, a small carry-on bag, and swimsuits for a Caribbean cruise aboard a cruise ship "wantabee." This is not to insult my favorite cruise ship as I picked it every year until it chose a new port of departure and I am now sunk.


Bahamas Celebration is a small cruise ship that once left from Miami on a four-day, three-night excursion to Nassau and back. Docked next to Oasis of the Seas in Nassau, it looks like a Dingy. Yet, we always ...

Valentine's Day - No Chocolate Please

Posted by dkchristi on January 24, 2013 at 9:25 PM Comments comments (0)

No Chocolate on Valentine's Day for me. Chocolate is too ordinary. In fact, it has little to do with the beginning of the myths around St. Valentine and the day of love we celebrate.


Valentine's Day is a day that represents the unique emotions and experiences that love engenders. What is your unique way to express love?


For me, orchids are the most exquisitely beautiful flowers in all their infinite varieties. Their very shapes, colors and unique ways ...

Thanksgiving gratitude list

Posted by dkchristi on November 20, 2012 at 10:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Thanksgiving – one day a year to be thankful – one thought on thankfulness and the other on the shopping bargains for Black Friday, now creeping into Thanksgiving itself.

I am particularly thankful for the unexpected time I have had with my son. Most of his life he spent building his career and dropping in for 24 hours a couple times a year. He came home for an extended time. It was an adjustment for me, but one that has taught me patience, tolerance and accep...

The Little Prince by Antoine St. Exupery

The first day of French class, everyone was speaking French except me.  I managed to enter college without one day of a foreign language.  The professor took a break and the girl in front of me with long, thick dark hair and large brown eyes turned to me and said, "Isn't he gorgeous?  The class is full because he is so hot." 

I never had a friend before who looked so great, talked so brazen and was also brilliant.  We were all part of the "honors" gr...
