The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Good-bye my Friend




1999 - October  6, 2016
Sinbad passed away peacefully at home last night by my side.

You were my most faithful and trusting companion ever in everything we did.
I don't have the words to express how much I will miss you.
