An Invitation...

Technology and social media have become monotonous and stressful.  I want to use technology to build something that enhances our lives and connects us as a community of people with a shared spirit.  I want to create a pause for self reflection and gratitude for the physical world we live in and the relationships that make everything worthwhile.  This journal is about being on a path to wisdom.

Each issue will be available as an eBook or printed journal filled with essays and photos.  This website will be a place where you can find out more about the photos and learn some photography tips along the way.

This website is also a place for you to share your feedback so please take the opportunity to tell me what you think as you dream, explore, and create.

Thank you for being here!
