Hey, There!
I’m Kendra.

This is me trying to leave my footprints behind.

After a gratifying career in IT, my focus in life shifted to me. No spouse, no children, no parents, no siblings, no boss, and fewer friends meant I could take the following path in my life without having to reconcile the intrinsic complexities of human relationships with my journey.

I’m a free spirit, older, wiser, and yet still a hippie at heart. I seek pleasure, not discomfort, and my bohemian values define My Tao in life.

Fusing June Cleaver, Joan Jett, Victoria Barkley with Kathryn Janeway is a fabulous, imaginative vision of presenting myself to the world. “Welcome home, dearest. Kick off your heels, freshen up, fix us a drink, then join me for a bit of drama in the kitchen.” Yes, I’m charming, intelligent, resourceful, vain, and captain of my starship.

Kendra In the City is my Starship Log. Have a leisurely read and come along for a few away missions.

Kendra, out.

Age with grace, dignity, and intelligence
Thrive with gusto, variety, and spice
Advocate not agitate
Keep the happy light on
Eat, drink, and be merry
Practice my ikigai
Create and share wabi-sabi
Absolve my sins, regrets, and failings
Go forward, not straight
Be proud of who and what I am
Leave footprints of my existence
