A special excerpt of ‘A Christmas Carol’ recorded by a group of my voice acting friends at our holiday party at soundBox:LA, the professional studio where we work out. Dawny shares some new holiday Foolish fun, Mark and I talk about our unexpected Christmas at Disneyland and our resident Singer-songwriter, Fionna Lane, leads us into our new year with a beautiful new rendition of Auld Lane Syne.

I’m smiling despite being eaten alive by flies! But it was fun trying out a new podcast rock and seeing a new view.

Podcast Recap

I let go of being controlled by results after discovering a new podcast rock and battling flies. An update on how I’m doing letting go of eating before eating from last show. The show’s monthly iTunes worldwide review report. A special thank you to an Amazon shopper from the US. Shows from my old podcast, Daily Adventure Tales, are recommended. Welcome to new BC Karen. Guy BCs are encouraged to participate. Comment reactions from last show by Dawny, Dave and eM. What do you do when starting or restarting a fitness program?

I feel surprisingly cheerful hiking in my rainbow jacket in the windy weather.

Podcast Recap

Frustration is my target today. It’s windy, it’s crowded, and I have to park my good car in the rugged mountain hiking lot! Thank you to BC Dave for his 5-star review on USA iTunes and to tech guy Mikey, from Jetpack, who helped me solve the technical snafus I shared last time. We celebrate the Bravery of new BC, Shannon, who posts her story and asks for our thoughts on the ‘Want Advice?’ page. Dawny steps in to welcome Shannon as well as to give us a funny joke for Foolish Fun. We hear what’s up with Amy from WI, Sue from the UK, Jill from the UK and Stéfanie from Quebec. BC Dave sends his list for things he does that add value to his life and his request for your list. Stéfanie sends her latest Secret Topic of the Day. Why do we do things we know aren’t in our best interests? I sneak in some singing bravery of my own.

Here’s the view from my convertible, Red Baby, in the crowded hiking area car park.

Home made sound booth solution with blankets and foam draped everywhere!

Here’s why my list of items to work on to make my life better includes researching a more permanent home sound booth setup. My current procedure of dragging out quilts and foam rubber and draping them over laundry racks every time I need to record inside is getting a bit old.

Me being arty with my shots again. Glad I didn’t have to photoshop anything out of my nose! It’s a cloudy day, but not too windy on the way up the mountain.

Podcast Recap

I recover my Zen on the mountain. Waiting is on my mind. We welcome our newest BC, Jill from the UK. Featured comments to her from moi, Dawny and Sue from the UK. Dawny Jumps right into our new Tricks and Tips feature with a great tip for those who enjoy their mocha java. Carol from Detroit sends in her kiwi tip via email. Mark’s touching comment for BC Dave, who shared his truth via the bravery hotline last show. Some great bike jokes sent in by Dave for today’s Foolish Fun. The story of my ironic descent from Zen and how I got it back – including me reading one of my errant blog posts.

Grey puffy clouds over the foothills in the distance.

Here’s the cloudy view from halfway up the trail. Pretty cool.

Stack of white rocks along the hiking trail.

Here I discover someone’s prayer rocks along the trail. I stop to send them positive thoughts and move on encouraged.
