Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.


It’s July, I’ve traveled 4 times this year, been away for 106 days, traveled 124,241 air miles, visited 17 cities in 6 countries and that doesn’t include the land miles… which are in the 1000’s of course.

And the surprising thing is that it’s all in the name of Textile Art.

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

I prepare carefully for each trip, some folk would say that I’m even obsessive about the preparation.  That doesn’t mean to say that it all goes smoothly or as planned. But I give it a good shot and don’t fuss too much if I have a hiccup on the way. I just look at those experiences as gaining new eyes.

What have I learned as I travel?

First of all I learned very fast to become resilient and I have learned to like myself. That’s not being smug, but imagine undertaking that much travel if you had an issue with yourself. Stubbornness helps, determination is a must and you don’t need anyones permission to enjoy the experiences of even to create the things that makes you happy.

 You just do it.

I’m figure I’m not required to save the world with my creativity but I am required to share it.

    Hi Pam, I’ve just joined the world of following your blog. I heard about you from a quilt store in northern Alberta that had a quilt done of your wacky alphabets. The one you color in. It impressed me so much I thought I would check out your other work. Very impressive. I also love your writings.

    Learn so much about yourself when you travel. I think the US gov should subsidize it, a mandatory leave for at least 6 months.
