“Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music”. - Ronald Reagan I must admit, I have a tiny bit of an obsession with sunsets and clouds, especially over any body of water or mountains. Being outside in nature and marveling at her unquestionable beauty always brings me piece of mind and reminds me how life is grand. On my 42nd Birthday (where on earth did the time go?) I celebrate some of my most sensational photos of Mother Nature […]
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow.” – Helen Keller To me, light means hope and optimism. Positive energy that surrounds our soul and lifts our spirits. There is no other activist, writer and lecturer who has inspired me more when it comes to seeing the light than Helen Keller (1880-1968). As a blind woman whose eyes only saw darkness, the light from her strength, courage and soul out shown her blindness and enabled her […]

Last May I had the honor of traveling to India for the second time within a three year time span and was delighted by the unexpected views from the street. Anyone who has ever been to India knows what I am saying when I attest there is no place quite like it on earth. A massive sea of humanity lies within its many cities and streets for those who are willing to unravel it and take it all in, of […]

Perhaps one of the most spectacular marvels of Mother Nature I’ve ever witnessed is the majestic Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina. Spanning an area of 250 square kilometers/97 square miles and 30 km/19 miles in length, the sheer magnitude of this massive piece of layered ice is incomprehensible. Ice trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier was one of my highlights to a trip to Southern Patagonia in 2009. Take a peak for yourself and see the immense beauty and power of Argentina’s premier […]

As much as I loved visiting China two year ago, there is one thing about China that still drove me mad. The horrifying, dense layer of suffocating pollution that cripples most of the major Chinese cities. China continues to have a major problem with pollution and not only does it look horrible it is bad for its people. Per a recent report in the New York Times, “Outdoor air pollution contributed to 1.2 million premature deaths in China in 2010, nearly 40 percent of the […]

“My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been”. - Diane Arbus Among one of the most unearthly beautiful places in the world lies the dramatic, stark landscape of Iceland. Known as “the land of fire and ice”, Iceland has by far been one of the most spectacular places I have ever experienced. For you don’t simply visit Iceland; you experience it.
This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge is “The Hue of You” and the goal is to show your personality through a photo or series of photos.

Infinite are the opportunities because you are a girl. Infinite are the possibilities that you will receive a good education, be fed, be loved, and be able to grow. Infinite are the possibilities your small hands hold; for the future is yours to be made. 33 million girls around the world are denied their right to education every single day. Imagine the possibilities if all girls could go to school and learn. Infinite. This post was written in honor of […]

My favorite time of the day is morning and there is no better way to start your day at one of the many outdoor cafés in lovely Paris. Cafe culture has been an essential part of Parisian life for centuries and I can see why. What could be better than sitting outside sipping a dark, strong cafe au lait, munching a buttery, hot fresh croissant and watching the world go by? Not much in my book. During a late April trip […]
Fall has always been my absolute favorite time of year. As the days and nights grow shorter and the sun shines her glorious luminous light, the leaves ever so slowly begin to change. This year, fall has been coming at a snail’s pace given our Indian Summer. Yet during the last few days the leaves have begun to turn into their magical tapestry of colors. Hues from pumpkin oranges, to scarlet reds and golden yellows delight the eyes. It is […]
