New Year’s Wishes

Cow, Lion

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Mark Twain

On this last day of a very long 2011, wishing all of you a very happy 2012. My advice is to feel the wind in your hair, love and laugh hard, seek new adventures and places, make new friends and visit old.

I could go on and on – mostly wishing everyone a year where dreams become reality – a shiny brand new slate to draw new pictures on.


just some lions


Have been a terrible blogger but just know…. this can only mean greatness is coming (that’s what THEY say, whoever THEY are).

In the meantime, here’s a lion video to fill this space. Happy almost 2012 friends! Hope you’re all headed or coming back from somewhere great.

Just for fun…


Just because I love this kind of wacky travel, no guidebook needed – just lots of maps, luck and pluck – via @theAdventurists “10,000 miles in a tiny car from Europe to Mongolia. Travelling is for sissies, come and get stuck in a desert on the Mongol Rally 2012.”

Thanksgiving Sunsets


As the eastern states of the US were treated to such gorgeous weather the week of Thanksgiving and because I have so much to say/posts to write/am overwhelmed by the holiday rush of life/not sure I have the hang of this blogging thing yet, here are some lovely pictures from Cape Cod, MA in the meantime.
