We carry within us all the mystical power we need to transform our world.
Anthon St. Maarten
I am from a small town in British Columbia... and although I grew up here, I have been traveling all of my life. There is nothing I love more than exploring the world and I might even be addicted.
I have always been a writer, either obsessed with highlighting the excitement of my exploration .. or focusing in to the characters that make the trip interesting. Join me as I celebrate the journey...

Happy set up Perfect Vision as a way for struggling women to support each other, stop the shame, learn new skills, and improve their lives. The group has roughly 10 members at a time, and aims to provide the women with the necessary skills and means to live independently.
This bridge will only take you halfway there, to those mysterious lands you long to see:
Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fairs and moonlit woods where unicorns run free.
So come and walk awhile with me and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I've known.
But this bridge will only take you halfway there...
The last few steps you'll have to take alone.
Countdown to Southeast Asia trip!
