Exploring the World and really seeing and feeling it through art and stories
My first ‘mini-series’ is a painting and writing series about walking the Amazing Tongariro Alpine crossing in New Zealand. Not just a physical challenge, but an emotional and spiritual one as well. Our group of 5 sets out in February 2019 to walk through these 3 volcanoes – two are active and one dormant with any others extinct and turned into beautiful crater lakes. Follow along to receive notifications of this 4 part series as soon as they are launched.
What does travel mean to you? A rest…. or some perspective on your everyday life, a mental refresh, some space to consider a pressing problam, an escape from a pressing problem, a chance to engage with other cultures, or just to see the beauty and variety in the world. Join me to read and see what I learn on my travels.
