Welcome – Bonjour – Hola – Hallo – Salem aleikum – Kia Ora
I am travelling around the world in person or in mind, trying to find out how life can be meaningful to me. Along the way I get to explore beautiful places and meet amazing people who now and then inspire a discussion, a thought, a poem or picture.
I am a book lover, picture taker, animal cuddler, peace maker, poet, country explorer, a big sister, a daughter, star gazer, karaoke singer, music addict, adventure seeker, life-long student, Christmas fanatic and I am on my way.
My unfulfilled dreams: visiting Peter Pan in Neverland and becoming an astronaut.
“So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we’ll never know most of them. But even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from here. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them. I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won’t tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn’t change the fact that they are upset. And even of somebody else has it much worse, that doesn’t really change the fact that you have what you have. Good and bad. Just like what my sister said when I had been in the hospital for a while. She said that she was really worried about going to college, and considering what I was going through, she felt really dumb about it. But I don’t know why she would feel dumb. I’d be worried, too. And really, I don’t think I have it any better or worse than she does. I don’t know. It’s just different. Maybe it’s good to put things into perspective, but sometimes, I think the only perspective is to really be there. Like Sam said. Because it’s okay to feel things. And be who you are about them.”
