Here are my answers to Glen’s questions:

  1. Why did you get into or what motivated you to start blogging? I love to write. I started writing and reading at a very young age. I’ve always been in a serious relationship with words, and have had a deep yearning to discover many of the answers that seem to have been hidden or forgotten in today’s world. Over time, I’ve come to know the power of words. Words can lift us up or break us down. Words literally have the power to change our livesEven those words we read on a page can change our lives drastically. Considering the power of words to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble, I started blogging as I’ve always been filled with passion to writing. Blogging is a great opportunity to share thoughts and experiences with the worldwide community. So in January 2018, I started blogging which helped me muse at the world through a lens steeped in mindfulness, adventure and tenderness in hope of inspiring as many people as possible through my writings and photography.
