Hola!

I know it has been a while since I blogged, but enjoying my family time here in Iowa. I had promised you back in March I would tell you the real reason that was behind this road trip when it was coming to a close. (Now, just hear this, My Magical Mystery Tour may never end. Hoping to checkout music around Florida when I get home and I still want the Pacific Coast Highway next summer.  ; )

Hello again!

I hope this finds you enjoying you summer! Ok, Ok, I admit it…. I love living like a Hippy here and wish I could do this indefinitely. ;) Not sure yet when I will return to Florida, but I know I will continue recording more local musicians and travel around Florida on the weekends once in a while to find more music when I do return. I am simply following my instincts on this one, which is God leading me when I am calm.

This is the week of house sitting in Ar...

How Do You Deal with a Death of a Loved One?

Posted by Merna Throne on Wednesday, June 29, 2016 In : My Magical Mystery Tour/Music Marathon 

Hola people!

            I will be here in Arizona till around July 20th. I have been having so much fun with Lisa Brooks family and she has an awesome one! I will be house sitting with two of their dogs. Yogi and Daisy, so they will keep me company during the 10 days they will be gone. It will give me time for solace, reflecting, working out (get rid of the little chub I gained), swimming, working online, and blogging. Oh yeah, and finding music around this city... but the rest time is oh...

I Had My Plan & God Had His of My Road Trip

Posted by Merna Throne on Tuesday, June 28, 2016 In : My Magical Mystery Tour/Music Marathon 

Hola people!

            When I began this Magical Mystery Tour I really didn’t have a plan, then I began to put one together. I had my agenda and looks like God had a different one. Ya know, I had a feeling it would be different. The music is here and there, but always on with my headphones an...

But for the Grace of God, There Go I....

Posted by Merna Throne on Sunday, June 26, 2016

Hola!

Today I am blogging from Phoenix Arizona! The temps have been 106-109 and honestly, I handle them fine. I am handling them as well as the hottest months in Florida, but this is a dryer heat. Of course, it is still hot. I am liking the dryer heat tho… Visiting all these different climates, elevations, places, etc it is always in the back of my mind if I would like to move there. I think once I return to SW Florida I will be able to reflect all in hindsight.

I have some true blue f...

Healing Unresolved Grief......

Hey!

As I sit here this morning on June 17th without the internet, it is giving me time to write this blog out and publish it later. Funny how so many things in life that stops these days if no Wifi access. However, you can still find things to do if you try. I have been in Colorado almost a mont...

Some Things are NOT Meant to Be...

Posted by Merna Throne on Wednesday, June 8, 2016 In : My Magical Mystery Tour/Music Marathon 

Hola!

            I am still in Colorado until June 17th or 18th, then I road trip down to Phoenix for a while to see another GREAT friend in my life and her family! True Blue friends are rare in life, and I feel so lucky that I am visiting them on this journey. Getting away from SW Florida has helped me with clarity and working out all the things that are weighing on me and have for some time. There isn’t one person in my life who knows all the details, but a handful or less know most. It...

Loving Colorado!

Posted by Merna Throne on Friday, June 3, 2016 In : My Magical Mystery Tour/Music Marathon 



Hey All!

Just a quick blog here to stay caught up.... I must say this road trip has been one of the best decisions I have made on many levels. Here in Colorado I am staying with a friend of mine. Our friendship goes back to the later 1980s on Sanibel Island, FL. We have stayed in touch since. They have taken me on so many mini road trip to see waterfalls, the Rocky Mountain and the incredible scenic drives too. I have some local places I will be checking out in the next couple weeks for music...

Colorado Here I Come!

Posted by Merna Throne on Thursday, May 19, 2016 In : My Magical Mystery Tour/Music Marathon 

Hola!

I have been in Iowa now for about a month and getting ready to leave for Colorado on May 23 (Monday) on my Music Crawl across the USA. Can’t believe this trip here I have been this sick, but better now than when I get on the road again. I was so fatigued I had begun to wonder if my motivation and energy was gone for good! I am on the mend and getting my FIRE back every day. My next festival is Bands in the Backyard, Vineland, CO June 17 & 18. Sawyer Brown, Kid Rock, 3 Doors Down, Alaba...

Music Marathon begins in May - 2016

Posted by Merna Throne on Saturday, April 30, 2016 In : My Magical Mystery Tour/Music Marathon 

Hello all!

Today is my first of (hopefully) many blog posts during my road trip of music festivals across the USA. There are some areas that do not have a festival of my liking, so I will be visiting Cancer Centers too.  My sister died in June 2014 from Cancer about 11 months after her diagnosis. I lost a lifelong friend suddenly last year too and it is still surreal. Hers stemmed from her demons of addiction she fought. I will talk more about this during my blogging time too. Enablers ca...
