Why Write?

……………………………………………………………………………..

In my life, the word “home” has come to mean many things.  It is the address I use for all legal documents, mail, and Christmas cards from out-of-town relatives.  It is the locked structure where I store clothes and equipment not used in my current adventures.  It is where I take care of my pets, and where we play together.  It is where I can be with the people I love.  It is where I relax, unwind, and feel safe.  For all of these reasons, home is the place I return to – almost by sheer instinct – after leaving it.  But what is worth leaving this home for?

Life is best lived by experiencing and exploring.  This could mean travelling half way around the world to a new country, trying a new recipe for the first time, or simply watching birds from a front porch – there is no shortage of new things to experience, notice, and learn from in the world.  These experiences shape the person you are.  They shape the person who returns home.

I’ve created this blog to share some of my personal motivation for enduring the regular stresses of day-to-day life.  Hopefully some of these pictures and the accompanying stories will provide inspiration for any readers to go out and start creating their own motivation – their own reasons to make it through the stresses of daily life.
