After all, couldn’t we all use a break from our computer screens and mobile phones? Well, I suspect that, for most of us, the answer would be “yes and no.”
As far as adventure travel goes, I’ve been luckier than most. I’ve slept in desert tends, rainforest treehouses and mountain huts. I’ve trekked through the remotest areas of Myanmar and seen the Aurora borealis. Each and every adventure that I went on changed me in one or more fundamental ways.

Every Artist struggles with insecurity, and those of us who started making art in our 60s, suffer from it even more.
Inner self-talk often includes thoughts like: Who am I to think I can be an Artist? What if people hate my work? Can I actually make a living doing something I enjoy? Can I hide while making my work visible?
