* What I am About *
Writings as I travel the worlds. Things that inspire me. Quotes that motivate. Sayings to remember. Notes on workouts that kicked my butt. Poems that I’ve tattooed out in love and tears collected. Pictures of beauty. This is little bit of everything.

“To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable; and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly…to listen to stars and buds, to babes and sages, with open heart; await occasions,hurry never…this is my symphony.”
