What are the chances?

You're studying abroad and decide to go sightseeing in Luxembourg and out of nowhere come your classmates from your university back home in the States. Really, what are the odds?            

Before I was an artist…

I’ve worked as a gas station attendant. I once worked at Subway for 4 hours. I’ve collected payments from customers for a sports cards trading company. I’ve been a sales representative at a mall. I’ve taught kindergarten at a daycare. I worked as an eCommerce...

Yusef visits the Middle East and Sudan

I’d like to preface my comments with a quote from Henry David Thoreau: “Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves. Instinctually, we gravitate toward comfort. We are drawn to the familiar. And by that principle, the concept of travel is almost entirely...

Erin in the Dominican Republic

My daughter traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico at 13 years old with her school to study Spanish and live with a host family. I think this trip was important because it gave her an authentic look at a country many Americans equate with tourism. Three years later she was given...

Hi, there. Welcome!

I spent the majority of my career in the financial field. I tapped into service work, hoping to send kids on service projects, but then Covid-19 happened. I had this whole site just sitting here and thought of doing nothing at all or doing something I’ve always wanted to without reservation. I could write; tell stories, mine and others. I could help others.

That’s how people. everyday. came about. I’ve always been interested in other people’s stories. How did you get here? What happened? What did you say; what did you do? Who helped you? How did you find yourself? What were the lessons learned? I’ve grown from my own experiences and from those of others.

I hope you will join me as I begin this creative journey…
