It’s a week I look forward to all year: tour guide summit week in Washington State. So many wonderful people, sharing this lucky career, and an employer I believe in.


I had a delicious meal in this sidewalk cafe in Brussels. The rain only added to it all.

So I’ll be learning and sharing and laughing a lot these next 9 days. But not much sleep. And nearly no free time. So the next few posts will be photos that have been lingering on my computer, unused, but in which I find some version of beauty, and a post link for each place.


A friend my lady and I made in Greece, a time that feels both near and unbearably long ago

How wonderful to live in a world with so many facets of beauty!


So much beauty in Istanbul, it was hard to pick just a few for a post about the city.

Happy January!
