Sands of Time

     Wanderlust is defined as 'an innate desire to rove or travel'.  I'd prefer to think of it as a need to explore; a need to know what is beyond the next river bend.  It is a passion for experiencing new places and meeting new people.  No matter your age or place in life - time is running out; Today, it is time to explore.
     The beauty and wonder I've experienced in the past three weeks in the mountains of Virginia, the deserts, mountains and dunes of Death Valley, and the life of the Florida seas makes me more realize my smallness and insignificance.  I've met interesting, talented and artistic people and renewed friendships with equally intriquing and cherished people.  I've experienced magnificent sunrises and sultry sunsets, yet I look forward to my next foray and the wonders it will bring.
