Paths To Take – Sienna

It has been more than a year since I was in this beautiful and peaceful location.  


The Best Kind Of Jewels – Rare Design

They are jewels and rocks,

Shoulders to cry on,
scraped knees to laugh at.
They are boulder carriers
And mischief makers.
They know when to stay,
They also know when to walk away.
They brighten up your life with their stories, laughter and incorrect grammar.
They know how you feel without a single whisper. 
They’ve been there through the thickest drenching rain,
Silently or in loud remarks.
They’ve been there when the sun’s shining on your life, 
Laughing along and making plans.
Best friends are easy to find,
But not you, you’re a rare design. 
Always and forever by my side. 

South Of France Adventures 

I disappeared to the South of France because… well, why not? 

Keep an eye out for the write-up on the beautiful villages.

If it’s both terrifying and amazing, then you should definitely pursue it. 

Anyone have this feeling when they make a life-changing decision? It makes me want to run away screaming but the opportunity and gain is too good and rich to leave alone. 

Today’s Quote #138

We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place, we stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there.

– Pascal Mercier 

Today’s Quote #137

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.

– Mark Twain
