    February 2024 Newsletter Reprint – Hands, Hearts & Fun Stuff

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo, and here we are, together again in my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world. How happy that makes me. I hope it does the same for you. Three or more weeks before Valentine’s Day, hundreds of flights from Colombia and Ecuador delivered around 18,000 tons of flowers to the Florida hub in Miami this year. There were roses and carnations from Bogota; pompons, hydrangeas, and chrysanthemums from Medellin; and roses, carnations, and gypsophila from Quito to name just a few. All in the name of love. Or lust. Or hopefulness.   UNTAMED! But I reckon we should go back to basics. What happened to good old hand-holding? It’s free, you…

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo, and welcome to my chilly camo jeep! Please reach for your warm hand-knitted blanket below your seat ;o) Imagination is required on our safari, but I know you have it in grandiose volumes. UNTAMED! One of my followers is ONDIEKI ONTWEKA from Kenya. He sent me some gorgeous photos, taken in and around his area, and I couldn’t wait to share one with you. Imagine yourself right there, on the plateau. Smell the oldest red earth on the African continent mixed with the dust of billions and billions of animal hoofs and paws on a continuous migration over earth’s oldest surface.

May you find many things to be grateful for this holiday season and may you share them with me to make me warm and fuzzy too! jillwallaceauthor@gmail.com. I’m always here to lend an ear.   Since my new series TIME FLIES, is all about airline travel, I am interested in how the crew copes these days. I discovered Captain Jo showing off the modern-day crew rest. In the 80’s on a 747, near the AFT galley with only a thick curtain for privacy, we grabbed at…

    October 2023 Newsletter Reprint – Braais, Prizes, & Bucket Lists

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo, and Welcome to my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world. I love that you come back for more. Thank you! Our boychild came to visit with his lovely new bride. (He is close to half a century but he will always be my ‘boychild’ just as his sister, Lesley, will always be my ‘girlchild’.) Terry and Trwinka showered us with kindness. Terry did chores neither his dad nor I can do with ease, and they even cooked us two glorious meals. We thought we’d died and gone to a posh hotel. Not just quick omelets you understand, but meals that took time and forethought. Perfectly grilled steaks…

    September 2023 Newsletter Reprint – Little Pigs, Squirrel Brains and Music, Music, Music.

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints Helloooooooooo, and Welcome to my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world. I love that you come back for more. Thank you! This is the most unusual safari. It’s a hodgepodge of human delights to take you away from hot weather, hurricanes, floods and fires. You see, my beloved has discovered the wonder that is YouTube. What was once a blissfully silent house where I could think my own thoughts, well when the dogs aren’t barking, has become the noisiest house in the hood. Athol’s debilitating disease renders him homebound. His eyesight is deteriorating but his love for music keeps him excited and entertained. Now he has found the…

    Read Previous Newsletter Reprints   Helloooooooooo, and Welcome to my Safari! It’s always bliss to have you along as we explore my Untamed, Unexpected, Unforgettable world! Today I received a note from one of the most tenacious women I have ever met. Her name is Patsy Blake. She’s been my dentist; my real estate client; and she’ll always be my friend. An American, she moved to New Zealand to be closer to her rugby-mad boys and their families. Faced with a recent and profound loss, Patsy tried working for a corporate group dentistry but was bored to tears. She’s deliberately ripped herself from an easy job and chosen to work…
