For those who struggle, it is a nightmare.  For those who have had their lives torn apart because a loved one committed suicide, the pain continues.  The questions continue.  Suicide of a loved one often destroys the lives of those left behind.

Please join me for a free online webinar as we discuss a mother's promise to help prevent suicide.

A Dream I Have

Sometimes this blog is just a personal journal space for me.  Maybe these posts that I write which are more personal, connect with others and maybe they don't.  If they don't connect with you, feel free to stop back tomorrow for something different.

I have a dream.  Yes, I do.  It may be nothing more than a dream at this moment, but its my dream.  Ever since I was a little kid, I always loved being in a car going down the highways and seeing all there was to see.  There was never a shortage of trees and hills and roads and everything in-between.

I love all of it and to me there is nothing like peace and freedom getting out on the road for a road trip.  On top of that, I love to take pictures.  The pictures help connect me to the moments of joy that I find when I travel.

So, my dream is that if I could quit my job right now, I'd take off with nothing but my suitcase (and some munching goodies), my camera and a good map or my GPS.  I wouldn't even worry about where I was going.  I'd just go.  Each day, I would take pictures and then at the end of the day, I'd upload the pictures and tell a story of what I saw.

It sounds like so much fun and I don't know if I could ever pull it off or not.  My camera is my painting canvas and my words.  It would probably tell a story unlike anything I could ever write.  At the very least, it would be nice to throw care and concern away, and just take off.  Hit the open road!

Its a dream I have.  Who knows - maybe one day it will be more than a dream.
