Talent has many faces. I find it refreshing to see others embrace creativity with the same sense of intrigue that I do and although I do not know these people personally, I find myself looking forward to hearing from them around the expansive universe that is the World Wide Web.

There are many places in this world which offer us solace; a break from the stress and constant busyness of our everyday lives. At times, we become so complacent with our fast-paced society that we forget to seek out those moments where we can be completely content in that precise moment.

These are my places...

  • Learning / Library
  • Relaxation / Starbucks & Second Cup
  • Delight / Yogen FrÜz
  • Discovery / Chapters
  • Reflection / Bower Ponds
  • Coziness / The Little Ice Cream and Soda Shoppe
  • Calm / Garden

"Cherish the moments of your life, whether significant or subtle. They will exist but once, then pass like a shadow into memory." S. L. Emslie
