One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child. ~ Carl Jung

Throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~ Mark Twain
I am blessed and grateful to have grown up with parents who love to travel and who grew up abroad. Because of them, I was exposed to Syrian and French culture and I began traveling at a young age.

These humble feelings arose in the places we went while my heart was jostled in the places in between.
