This is an invitation to us travelers to explore where we are in the journey of life and understand why we are there.
Some of us may have travel companions, while some of us may be traveling by ourselves. The journey is represented by five travel personas:
◆ for the ones who are on a path to self-development and growth;
◆ for the ones who are leading others, and sometimes, themselves through the motions of change;
◆ for the ones who are on a spiritual journey to healing and happiness;
◆ for the ones who are trying to overcome self-doubt, as they try new things and embrace transformation;
◆ for the ones who are defining and redefining their identities, through their relationships with other people.
In Judy’s words, her debut collection of illustrations and poetry will spark your inner childlike curiosity.
"Wow, just finished reading this little treasure. Couldn't put it down. The author takes the reader on a journey of love, loss, compassion, grief, hope, inclusion and community." - Reader review on Amazon
""I love the subtitle “Stories contoured by poetry” because that’s exactly what this lovely book is and I related to so many of them. Others painted pictures for me. I learned that Saudade means melancholy and that Vilomah is the saddest word of all. The author says “I give you these incomplete maps drawn by the frayed hands of us explorers, us guides, us pilgrims, us pioneers, us settlers.” A beautiful journey."" - Pat Fleming, Reader review on Amazon"
