My mantra of late; “change is good”
Having been born and raised in Victoria I never imagined wanting to leave the Island, but with a grandchild on the mainland my mind quickly changed.
I’m rather excited about the move, my husband and I are looking forward to being closer to our grandson (there is a second one on the way as well).
“20 years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the one’s you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
I love Nepal. My trek to Everest base camp in 2012 was a true life enhancing experience.
Something so special, that I revisit it in my mind on an almost daily basis.
It breaks my heart to imagine what people in Nepal, must be going through after Saturday’s devastating earthquake and resulting avalanche at Everest base camp.
It doesn’t feel like enough, but a donation to the Red Cross will be my start.
Hope everyone who has ever visited Nepal will do something similar.
Canadians are encouraged to support people impacted by this disaster by making a donation to the Canadian Red Cross Nepal Region Earthquake Fund at http://www.redcross.ca, by calling 1-800-418-1111 or by contacting their local Canadian Red Cross office.
As a wrap up to our North India Photography tour, Marlin Travel hosted an exhibit showcasing the wonderful images created by the participants of our tour. Many thanks to Peter, Orysia, Josh, Karla, Lynn, Kim, Keith, Ann, Margaret and Ernie – by the end of the evening we’d raised over $500.00 for Asha Ka Jharna, a children’s charity in the area of Rajasthan that we visited. Congratulations as well to Peter, his vibrant fuchsia and blue image of Jodphur was selected “people’s choice” winner.
