“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” ~ Ansel Adams

I may not be a true “nomad” but I have learnt through life to enjoy the simple things. True relationships, service, unconditional love and companionship make the difference. Do not just take what life throws at you, make it how you want to see and experience it.

“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving” ~ Lao Tzu

For me, it is not about arriving anywhere. There isn’t an end to the journey, there isn’t light at the end of the tunnel. I am the journey, I am the light. Every person I meet with, every experience I face, I celebrate! and add it to my life’s story.
