About the Journey: You're crazy! Aren't you?

About the Journey: You're crazy! Aren't you?: I'm thinking that being crazy (at least the delusional part) is required, if you set out to be a successful female screenwriter at sixty...

HIT IT! The Road That Is!

My new book is out and I am so excited!!!  HIT IT! The Road That Is!

The book is a resource for RVers and those interested in RVing. Book sections include: Getting Ready for RV travel (especially if you are new to RVing), resources and tips for the road, profiles of fascinating people out there traveling in RVs, places to see, handy RV businesses, recipes for the road and even a section on unusual RVs spotted by the author while traveling. There are hundreds of links to helpful websites, blogs and videos. Color pictures are included to illustrate people, places and things RV.




This is the culmination of three years of writing about RVing! Please pass along to friends and family!  Thanks much.  Levonne  (Can see it on Amazon.)

Don't Just Accept Any Old Dog Into Your Life!

That's what I'm reminding myself as I move into first gear of  dog walking here at the Petaluma KOA this year. I need something to get me up from "sitting" as I make art and write. So I'm dog sitting/walking for people that want to go into San Francisco for the day.

Daisy spent the day with us last week. She was a piece of cake to have around.
Spending time with dogs fits perfectly into my life, as long as I discriminate on which ones I let in. I don't say that to be prejudiced or mean. I say it because I know how easy it is for me to say "yes" to a pretty face.

Saying yes to every pretty face got me in trouble when I dog walked at the KOA several summers ago. I remember that crazed pup lab that nearly killed me with his antics! His owner told me he was a handful. But I said "No worries! I can handle him." Well he never stopped moving and he was strong! Strong enough to wear me to a frazzle mentally and twist my back with his jerking and pulling.
Raya, the crazed lab pup pushed me over the edge.


So, I've determined this time around that I will say "no" to a dog that is a deadly combination of strong, active, big and untrained. After all, I want to be able to help out with as many dogs as I can. For that I need a healthy body and mind.

So be in touch if you stop at the San Francisco/Petaluma KOA in your travels this spring or summer and need someone to look after your pooch while you tour for the day.

Create!



I spent quality time in 2015 making art. I didn't make it to sell it. I just made it for fun and to grow as an artist. I'm involved with the same art group this year and enjoying my journey thus far. Here are some of my favorite creations from last year.

I created blog posts for RVT.com until recently. I wrote those posts for pay. It was a good discipline to create a new post every week for three years! And it was great to get paid for my work. (I will release a book based on the RVT.com posts from the past three years - over 150 of them - this spring (2016) called "Hit It! The Road That Is." So stay tuned.)

At the moment, I am writing a TV series called "Utopia." The theme of the series is: "Prejudice is everywhere." Here's the story-line.


"It's 1948. World War II is over. Servicemen have returned home to rebuild their lives. A wealthy land developer named Henry Blackstock decides to build a community of many races where people can live in harmony. He calls his community "Utopia."

So as you can see, my creative life is in full swing. When John and I began our "California Odyssey" over seven years ago, my dream was to live in a community that I would love and to be a full-time writer and doggie mom. Dream fulfilled for certain!  (If you haven't read about our journey, you can still find my book about it on Amazon - "This Restless Life: A Dream Chased Through California Parks in an RV.

What kind of fun things are you doing at the moment? I look forward to hearing from you!
