It is said that we create our reality with our minds. I believe this is true. Even from a young age, my dreams of exotic adventures were fired by such classics as Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time and Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days”. It was then just a short leap from fantasy travel to the real thing. Books such as Karen Blixen’s Out of Africa inspired the adult me to finally leave my safe zone and explore the world with my partner. For some years now I have enjoyed a life of international travel, living in cultures much different than my own. This has given me a broader perspective of the world and myself.
Surprisingly, life on the road revealed that I love to write. Previous to that, the creative aspect of myself had been a professional artist. Now I was painting with words, and I realized that they have possibilities that far exceed paint on paper. I can reach many more people than I ever could with my art!
What do I write about? Real life miracles in parks. Meaningful serendipitous meetings with people I will never see again. Friendships with amazing people who follow their soul’s calling. The power of our thoughts. And our hearts. My love of the Earth, and the connection I feel with her. A new paradigm that I (and many others) feel is coming. My love of Hawaii, and the spirit of Aloha. The concept of One. And there is more. I hope that somewhere in my stories, articles and poems, you will find a little seed of inspiration to take away with you.
