Many of us instinctively judge everyone and everything that we come across. When someone says something that we disagree with we automatically put them into a specific category and base all our future interactions with this person based on their view which we don't agree with. This, in turn, creates divisions and limits our chances to see the world from the perspective of another.
Hi everyone, I've been taking a break lately from writing my ongoing saga about the incredible wandering hobo known as Hobo Joe and I've been writing poetry. Which has been quite fun and interesting. Are there any poets in the room today? Well, I'd like to share some of my work with you all. I've spent a lot of time being outdoors and observing nature, so here are some of my thoughts and reflections on the subject.
I grew up in a big city surrounded by millions of people so for me visiting the desert for the first time was like taking a trip to the moon. And for some strange reason, I have always been drawn to these vast, dry lands. I wanted to see huge cacti hovering over the line of the horizon, jagged rock formations, roadrunners, coyotes, tumbleweeds, dust clouds and rough looking desert dwellers. So, when I finally had some extra time and money, I went to the desert.
One of the first things that everyone is looking for as a single traveler is love and companionship. But is it something to seek out or does it just magically happen out of the blue? I believe that it’s a combination of the two. It helps to be in the right place at the right time, but where are these places and what time should we frequent them? And how can we increase our personal level of attractiveness while on the road?

She’s the author of my life. She penned me. It took her months of labor. No rewrite. Early on, she felt like scrapping the first draft. The words just wouldn’t come. I guess she always assumed they would, quite naturally even flow from her heart down her wrist and become the ink that inscribed life onto my blank pages.
I’d like to share a story with you all about a random person I met a while back. I know this doesn't necessarily have anything to do with art or traveling but it's a funny/scary story and it shows that sometimes you can sit back and listen to someone talk and then realize that they have something amazing to tell you! We just need to be receptive and let them entertain us...
In April 2017 I got the chance to do something I had wanted to do ever since I was young. I remember discovering about the Australian and New Zealand soldiers that had sacrificed so much for others they never knew way back in high (secondary) school and have always wanted to visit the site where the famous ANZAC battle had taken place. April 2017 was the year I got to make this dream a reality after I booked a tour with G Adventures.
I hiked and hiked and hiked and hiked until my feet were swollen with pink blisters and felt more tender than a chunk of chopped up Italian liver, but I didn’t give a shit and I kept going anyways. At this point, I was out of the wilderness and back on the main road. I kept walking and eventually came upon a gas station late in the afternoon. I went inside, drank some water in the bathroom, and washed off my tired grimy face with my Hobo hands. I saw the attendant at the front of the store and asked him,,

"Hello," I said, "What is this place?” "This is Amish country my boy, are you looking for the trail?” "Yes. I´ve been hiking all day and the trail ended and now I’m here." "Ok well you have to continue a bit further, past those barn houses there, then the trail continues.” He said while pointing at some big wooden houses that had several men working on top with hand tools; saws, hammers, and chisels. They all seemed to be wearing the same type of dully colored clothing and had big beards and suspenders holding up there well-worn trousers.
Peru, homeland of the Incas and stronghold of the Spanish Empire, has a complex history. Alex Trembath of Story Every Day discusses how visitors can explore it today, from the relics of imperialism in the south to the Amazonian influence in the north. Modern Peru is a country of rich diversity that attracts millions of visitors every year. Characterised by colourful towns and cities, contrasting jungle and desert landscapes, and lush countryside scattered with relics of its Incan past, few places are as intriguing or photogenic.
I found broken up leaves and various bugs crawling all over my body as I opened my eyes and realized I was in the woods, safely resting in my hobo refuge. I slept well. Not like in my own bed, but I had an immense feeling of liberation and I thought that anything was possible. I was dry, I was alive, I was hungry. I dug into my pockets and found a little bit of leftover granola and started to have breakfast. Warm water, granola and a couple of insects,

A couple of months ago I received a call about commissioning a transom window. Potential clients had decided to support a local artist (bonus points for that!) to design the transom window for over a set of internal doors within their home; they searched the internet, found my website; LuminousMoose.Glass, liked what they saw, and chose me. The following week we met to discuss the project…
