* Sometimes you just have to take the leap and build your wings on the way down *

Welcome to my hub page - please feel free to sit for a spell and wander through these pages - a collection (ecclectic as it may be) of my thoughts, musings, commentary, poetry, and analysis on my journey through life's wonderful tapestry and the people I've had the priveledge to become friends with along the way.

I live in Maryland. presently. I've journeyed through life in circles...starting here and somehow right now, ending up back here. I've traveled all around the world and know not where I'll end up, but I am loving the adventure (in all its facets). This is the main focus of my writing - my journey through life and anything I stumble upon.

♥ YOU NEVER KNOW HOW STRONG YOU ARE UNTIL BEING STRONG IS THE ONLY CHOICE YOU HAVE.....♥

I've realized that journeys take strength of heart, physical strength and if you don't already have it, spiritual strength. And you can't make it alone. I haven't always been able to express myself verbally, but I've kept a journal since age 11, and writing has always been the one place I've been able to maintain purity, honesty and some kind of innocence in spite of what else I may experience. I invite you along parts of my journey and to get lost in my world for a while. Sit down and just make yourself comfortable. Please comment, say hello, send me mail - let me know if you stop by....also if you have a hub you would like me to visit, please send me a private message.

Namaste’ and Kubiando!

Erin

This week I published my 100th hub. I have to say it was a significant milestone for me. I could not have done it without all the support and friendship I have found here in the past year and a half at hubpages. I thank each and every one of you who have helped me through the good, bad and challenging times - I've marked my growth here within these pages. Namaste'
