Travel the World

Standard

Travelling appears to be in our DNA.  Given the migration patterns throughout the centuries, travelling appears to be a survival impulse, a necessity for continued existence.

Today, we travel to explore, have fun and flee the chains of labour.  We plan our vacations with careful precision; when we return to reality, we are already planning our next excursion. This week, I will be posting thoughts about travel – where we go and where we come from…which, in many cases, may be the same place.

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.” 
Swami Vivekananda

Art Nouveau in Paris – Art in Action

Standard

The first thing I noticed about Paris was its transit stations called Métropolitain (French: Métro de Paris). And there is a reason – influenced by Art Nouveau, it is art in action, a symbol of the city famous for art and culture. May 10th marks the beginning of my study of Art Nouveau.
