“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” ~ Maya Angelou

..with passion, like fresh water.

“She is free in her wildness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. ‘Time’ for her isn’t something to fight against. Her life flows clean, with passion, like fresh water.” ~ Roman Payne

“If you catch me dreaming, please don’t wake me till I’m done. Just leave me sleeping until  the morning comes…” ~ Anthony Hamilton, Pass Me Over 


“In the light, we read the inventions of others. In the darkness, we invent our own stories.”
~ Alberto Manguel, The Library at Night

“My body needs laughter as much as it needs tears.” ~ Mahogany SilverRain
