The luxury of time to break away from the routines of everyday life.
The resources and good health that make it possible to travel the world.
My dear husband, a loving and congenial touring companion.
New places and old haunts that offer joy and beauty at every turn.
The hospitality and skill of those who have served our needs along the way.
Adventures and delights in abundance.
Challenges and disappointments in very small measure.
Fresh images to paint, and new stories to share.
Interesting and engaging work to head back to.
Family and community to anticipate our arrival back home.
Safe passage and safe return.
Life has been and continues to be very, very good to me.
