Within the imaginations of everyone who’s creative ideas and thoughts are inspired or influenced by anything seen on television, read in a book or magazine, can become a reality.
I was influenced by television shows like Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom, hosted by Marlin Perkins, National Geographic magazines and the used encyclopedias my mother bought. I remember the days of quickly skimming through the encyclopedias and magazines looking at the pictures especially the National Geographics.
The destinations around the world I viewed intrigued, influenced, and inspired my ideas of travel based merely on my curiosity to explore and see the locations in person.
My family, friends and blog post subscribers view my photographs, read about my travel destinations, short stories along with the haikus I post are influenced and hopefully inspired. Yet, many live vicariously through what I reveal from my travels.
What I believe and know, is within everyone is the “courage” to do anything and I mean anything imagined, desired created within their mind of free thinking. But, it is fear, rooted deeply in the human spirit, and their soul denying them of the opportunity to travel.
If you dream freely of your desires but, fearful of the journey. I suggest and recommend looking at a mirror and search within your heart and soul to seize the day to make your travel dreams a reality.
Dream of your courageous journey, to influence your reality.
