WORD OF THE WEEK: WANDER

The word WANDER is one that, with eyes closed, can take you away from it all. Whether you imagine wandering through a lush forest, a warm sandy beach, or to an ancient city on the other side of the world; the word alone can send a magical wave of dreamy drifting right through you.

Wherever you WANDER, may all of your experiences take you to the places that bring you a sense of awe and amazement.

"All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost."  J.R.R. Tolkien

   Michelle Larson   - It's no secret that I love to travel. It's where I find the most value in the exchange of energy of what I earn and how I choose to spend.  I decided to write a poem that expresses my passion for WANDERing... which reminds me - I need to plan a trip : )

   Julie Cimpko   - I feel a deep desire to wander, to travel, to see and experience different things. It changes me in some way each and every time I'm away. It somehow makes me a better designer, artist, friend, sister...person. (Photo taken at Wanderlust Festival, North Shore, Oahu)

   Susan Shepardson   - Whether it's local or abroad, I love to wander. This is a note to self: wander more!  I definitely need to plan some travel and make more time to stroll the local beaches and hiking trails. Getting lost in an adventure is what I crave.
