If you have come this far, then something has made you curious. Hopefully over the coming months and years, this will be come a journal of adventure of the crazy and mundane type for every voyage his its own story of relevance. There will be stories of play and work, stories of life and love, pictures to add colour to the palette and to keep it interesting, hopefully some insightful comments from you too.

Now its time to get up and start this adventure. With a quote:

Humilty is nothing but the proud fear of stumbling in front of others. Stumbling is nothing; the wrong is in the diverging form, leaving ones path, no longer paying attention to what one says, forgetting what one is. So follow your path.
- Jacques Ranciere

 

Let the journey on this path continue.
