The most noticeable feature of my office though by far is the large world map containing the “infamous” colored tacks which mark where I have been and where I would like to go. Over the years, I've changed quite a few of the tacks from going to gone.
One of my mottos is a quote by St. Augustine: "The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." I want to make sure I've read my fair share of its pages. Several people have encouraged me to create this blog. Yes, it will mainly be about travel, because it's a large part of my life. But it will also be about the random hobbies I pursue, profiles of fascinating people I meet, crazy endeavors of my career and a whole lot of other things I deem interesting...and I hope you do too.
Mostly what you will find on this blog will be columns that I have written and published in our local small town newspaper, where I am the reporter/photographer. I really enjoy my job. I mean who do you know that gets to go to library storytime, brush shoulders with mayors and the governor, go on drug busts with local law enforcement, enjoy free train rides and luncheons, attend etiquette and art class, be in the sideline action at sporting events, head backstage at concerts...and it's all part of their job. Yep, it's pretty great. God has blessed me so much!
