JACKIE (noun) JOURNEYS (verb)
What is the purpose / theme of this web-site? We ALL JOURNEY — to the beyond and to within. As I share my diverse journeys with you, I hope they will encourage you to think about your own journeys, in order know yourself more intimately. Who we are helps to determine the journeys we choose, and those journeys, as well as unplanned journeys, help us to grown in mind and spirit.– if we pay attention. My wish for you is that this site will encourage you to find significance in your own journeys
The site was first launched in June 2012, right before I set off on what I thought could be my final overseas travel-type journey.. However, it is also a reflection of my interest in “journeys” in general, for this is where I discover diversity in people and places, an interest that motivates my journeys and vice-versa.
