Ramblings and Observations

What’s It All About?

Since I love to wander, Ramblings and Observations are exactly that. They’re the geographical and philosophical ramblings of a mature woman while traveling and living daily life. Like the cork sneakers from a shop window on Madeira, I hope the concepts are familiar yet with a surprising construction and a shiny new idea.

New experiences and observations help us change our way of thinking. They change our impressions. They often change us.

I hope to incorporate a bit of inspiration that encourages you to try, think or do something in a new and different way. To paraphrase Darwin, “We change or we die.”

Welcome to Ramblings and Observations. Keep changing! Drop me a line in Comments.
