Seeking Diversity

Seeking Diversity

Too often we rally against those who are different. Their differences are the fodder of our hate while our lack of understanding and empathy is the very oxygen breathing life into the flame of indifference, unkindness, and disregard. When we become comfortable with the idea of placing people into inferior categories, the substance of our differences can adopt many faces: cultural, racial, sexual preferential; gender, occupation, shape, fashion. Doesn’t matter. Our prejudices will hone in on the divisive and equate it with the negative, the wrong, and the less than.

The Value of a Global Perspective

How do we get from commercial outrage to united understanding? One step at a time.

Traveling Beyond Tourism

Traveling Beyond Tourism

You are walking down the bustling town center with your overflowing Osprey 75 Liter strapped to your back like a turtle shell, last night’s laundry drying from every available strap.  Tourist tassels at their finest.  But hey, who can fault you for being efficient?  No matter; right now, fashion is the obvious concern.  Your day pack does the trick, goofy-footed to your chest so that your head floats in a mass of ErgoFIt, AirVenting, GoreTex-y goodness. Congratulations, you’re now a pregnant turtle.  With flair.
