Strive to be intuitive, spontaneous,

Travel lighter,
journey farther,
survive longer.
- Lao Tzu

His site celebrates life, art, travel, stories, cultures, diversity, beauty, serious mischief and ephemerals.
When you drink water consider the source.

The University of Life provides evolutionary educational evidence as humans experiment
with symbolic metaphorical ideograms. He has nothing to say and he's saying it.

"Experience is your education. Everything else is information." - Einstein

You are a fluke of the universe. Take advantage of it.

One life, no plan, many adventures. 

You can't step in the same river twice.

Celebrate your integrity and authenticity. No attachment, no desire.

Joyful existence. Practice love, awareness, tolerance and compassion with gratitude. 

Suffering is an illusion.
Fear is ignorance.

Live broadly, create boldly.

Vita brevis,
ars longa,
occasio praeceps,
experimentum periculosum,
iudicium difficile.
Life is short,
and art long,
opportunity fleeting,
experience perilous,
and decision difficult.

Life gives us art and we use art to celebrate life.

Art, like life, follows the creative path of nature, not the values of human society.

A poet, like a gardener or chef loves everything because they need everything.

Live forever.

Lao girl reflects her happy world.


Walker, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more.
Walker, there is no road, the road is
made by walking.

Walking, you make the road, and turning to look behind you see the path

you will never walk again.

Walker, there is no road, only foam
trails on the sea. - Antonio Machado
