New Beginnings

I am beginning a new chapter in my life and this one promises to be the best yet.  When I travel I feel such a sense of wonder and delight and suddenly everything seems possible.  Things that I only dreamt of as a girl now are within my reach.  Every new place I visit only deepens the desire for more.  Every trip touches me and changes my life in so many ways.  My view of the world expands and I have learned something I would never have known.

This lovely poem by Michele LeDoux sums it up nicely -
As I begin this journey of mine, I will loosen my laces and remove my boots to protect me from absolutely nothing.

Every trip to Ireland is a good one

Just returned from the TBEX conference in Dublin, Ireland and even though I missed the entire event due to illness it was still a great week.  I truly love the country and the people so just being there was grand.  It made me very happy to see so many people discover what I’ve always known – that Ireland is a very special and magical place in the world!
