“The rose has but a summer reign, the daisy never dies” – James Montgomery
MOVED BY MOM-Why This Blog Exists
The idea for this travel blog was a long time coming with several cycles of courage needed to complete it and also bring it to its closure. It was back in 2009 when my friend Miguel originally designed the logo and the seed of the travel blog was born (but not much else). Little did I know how much significance the bee (Hebrew for Deborah) and the daisy on my logo would have! On Nov. 14th, 2013 my mother, Daisy, made her transition and that was The Day That Changed Everything. Her death provided the courage and motivation to move on my dreams.
THE JOURNEY BEE-GINS
On January 14th, 2014, I launched a 10-Month Manifest Your Desires Campaign. My mission was to encourage, inspire and support others in manifesting their desires by blogging about my 10-month commitment to manifest my desires in honor of my mother. While bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert , “Ate, Prayed, and Loved” her way through Italy, India and Indonesia, I set out to “Travel Write, Fundraise and Book Publish” my way through those 10 months. I also began the Pushing Daisy Drive (Driven by Miss Daisy’s Daughter) which is an on-going, long-term vision to build an Eco-friendly home and health education center in Antigua, West Indies in honor of my mother’s legacy of service.
