Share my experiences here. We need words to describe epic journeys in our life and those secret places we create in our minds. We live vicariously through the words of others so we may enter the worlds they create, the love, the heartbreak and raw emotion they draw out of us through writing and music. We need film to allow us to see through another’s eyes, assist us in understanding human nature that resembles us and yet unlike anything we ever imagined.

We are all different but yet the same. We need travel to inspire us and show us new adventures so we can experience the journey of being human and step out of what we think is normal.
