Today’s Breaking News

“You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain’t it hard when you discover that
He really wasn’t where it’s at
After he took from you everything he could steal.-”
Like A Rolling Stone- Bob Dylan

Today’s Breaking News: 

Having voted early by mail I skipped both the latest ‘soft launch’ of  Trump TV and the third and last United States Presidential debates, both which aired in the same evening this week.

The townhouse is a clutter with Halloween decorations, the neighborhood flush with political and property For Sale signs. Familial holiday plans are  made, and  people are misbehaving in Walmart. The color and mood of tourists and residents alike is pulsing purple, as Arizona goes  Red to Blue. and JoHannaMassey.com has just over 1000 followers.

Talk about making Granny happy! Thank you so much. I enjoy creating this space. Even more, I love being able  to connect globally with so many interesting people and learn of their lives, interact, and watch their own websites grow and thrive.  It is pure magic. A gift I never considered even possible for most of my life as the technology did not exist.

Two new bookshelves, only a few more boxes until I am unpacked, five pots of privet to grow out to learn topiary, reading The Art of War- Sun Tzu- the Thomas Cleary  hard copy translation, A Reporter’s Life by Walter Cronkite.  Evenings with old Woody Allen movies, Hollywood Ending, and Broadway Danny Rose up next for shared  viewing pleasure. Giving

Bob Dylan another listen, and had quite forgotten just how much I enjoyed some of his music, or how globally relevant it feels today.

Binge  hiking, the weather and availability of so many places to explore making it impossible to remain indoors. Photographing  hikes, being inspired and invigorated by entire days spent with nature. I am  excited to share in a separate photo essay  what was a colorful day out and about yesterday, up Oak Creek Canyon to the Snowbowl to photograph the fall foliage.  Been embracing every moment in a stretch of perfect days.

And again, thank you for your part in making JoHannaMassey.com such a  success. All my best to you. Be safe and have a peaceful week coming.

  1. I thought I would catch up JoHannah, so pleased I did! From 1 to 1000, that is fantastic, well done. I love your fabulous photography and I will be coming back just to listen to your choice of music, it’s so long sense I listened to Marvin Gaye, Bob Dylan and Jethro Tull.
    Hope you enjoy the festive season,
    All the best for the coming year

  2. Johanna, I love the sound of binge hiking – if you’re going to binge on something make it positive and mindful! Wow, you’re going to learn topiary?! How tall will the bushes grow? You’ll probably need a ladder at some stage. Reminds me of the grand old estates we visit during summers and a gardener will be patiently shaping the bushes – always impressed me. Finally congratulations on a 1000 followers; your blog deserves them and I always enjoy reading your posts!! 😀😀
