Welcome to My World!

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

One can always count on Mark Twain for a relevant and insightful quotation. More than anything else, my primary goal in life has been to live with no regrets, to seize the day whenever possible. It's a credo I don't always follow, but I find myself coming back to it again and again, even as I grow older and more "responsible."

Heeding Twain's advice, I try to travel as often as my lifestyle allowsthough not nearly as often as I would like. So here on this Web site, dear reader, journey vicariously with me, as I travel to distant [Strick]lands!

We escaped the cold Northeast winter for an equally cold long weekend in London, but the great food, cozy pubs and excellent company kept us warm.
