Images and ideas that set my brain in motion
[I lifted the description from Wikipedia. Definitely come here if you're in Namibia. There are quite a few tourists so if you do, come early and go with a proper outfitter, you can have more solitude and an easier time getting in.] Deadvlei is a...
19 Xinjiangongmen Rd, Haidian Qu, China, 100000
The present-day Summer Palace is China's largest royal park and was once called the Garden of Cultivated Harmony. It took its current name when Empress Dowager Cixi, in a controversial action, used some money earmarked for the navy and rebuilt the...
Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL, USA
Chicago is one of my favorite cities in the USA. It's bursting at the seams with fantastic restaurants, hole-in-the-wall pubs and bars, world-class stadiums, art galleries, and everything else you'd expect in an Alpha World City, though it retains...
South Haven, MI 49090, USA
Rendezvous - Michigan summers at South Haven beach. Picnic, Frisbee, friends, and lots of sunshine. ----- Ritual - once a year, take part in a "Day of Gracious Living" - pause from work/stress & enjoy a good afternoon with good people.
There's a reason this is one of the wonders of the world. No, it cannot be seen from outer space, but it is truly magnificent. When visiting China, avoid the super touristy hotspots. We visited a spot that locals preferred called MuTianYu, about...
Las Terrazas, Cuba
While in Cuba, I visited the nature reserve called Las Terrazas. There I found a coffee shop that served this capppuccino with a surprise cinnamon topping. With a specially designed stencil, the servers offer up a real Cuban coffee with an image...
Abasto, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Turning the corner onto Pasaje Zelaya in the Abasto area of Buenos Aires reveals a shocking array of colors in a celebration of all things Argentinian. The walls on the buildings here are covered in poetry, song lyrics, tango dancers, portraits of...
6 Main St, Bisbee, AZ 85603, USA
In the backstreets of the mile-high mining town of Bisbee, Arizona, some unlikely art: a stencil of Mona Lisa? blindfolded? framed by Buddhist philosophy? This is some of the street-art that inspires residents in this SE Arizona town to display...
Luang Prabang, Laos
This is what you came for. Sure it's the exotic smells, the snippet of a town almost buried between two rivers flanked by jungle carpeted hills... ...but it was somebody's promise that this part of SE Asia had actually held time at bay. And in a...
Concord, MA, USA
Meg, Jo, Beth, Amy - a carer, a writer, a musician, an artist. Many girls grew up with these 'Little Women' in their minds. So did I. The creator of these literary characters rests in peace at the Sleepy Hollow in Concord. It was humbling to have...
San Pedro de Atacama, Región de Antofagasta, Chile
I loved the silence, the peacefulness, of the Atacama Desert. I would ride my bike there regularly and go hiking, especially on the sand dunes. Sometimes, I'd bring some new friends. This is, as you may have guessed, a photo of us running,...
