Choose worship

This Christmas, choose worship. Carry that worship in your life throughout the year. God said, 'For I know the plans I have for you, to prosper you.' May you have a very prosperous new year.

Remember those less fortunate, those in war torn countries.

Travel alone

Its tough, one has to suffer a lot of indignities like getting lost in the rain. I envy those travelers when I pass their expensive hotels to see hotel staff helping load and unload the cars in front of the hotel. Wow, No one has ever helped with my luggage, in fact, the day before this picture, someone helped themselves to my luggage and walked off with it. What irony! Here I am, getting off the train in Bath, England, in the rain, all wet and bedraggled, trying to locate the hostel. I must look quite a sight. Anyway I'm scheduled to leave again, alone, in April, for a short trip to Japan.

Choose joy

'Joy to the world', says the carol. This season, choose joy, simple joy. Cafe in Stavanger, Norway where I found such joy.

Choose adventure

Happy birthday, Vienna 150 years. Here, a few years ago at the Kunsthistorisches museum, having lunch. I returned to Vienna 2 months ago. This building is a gorgeous palace and house some of Vienna's most priceless art. If you do visit Vienna, take your time, there's so much to see and experience.

Choose beauty

An old wooden house, a yard full of tall grass and fading lupins, its summer time in Aland in the Turku archipelago of Finland. Who would have thought there was beauty here? The sun was hot and as I hiked alone that day I wished the day would never end. The summers here, albeit brief, is so beautiful here. Its a beautiful world. Cherish this beautiful world, Cherish this beautiful life.

Choose life

'I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly'. In light of the terror attacks in San Bernardino, choose life.

Jamie Oliver's restaurant

The restaurant was simply named 'Jamie' but everyone knows its a Jamie Oliver restaurant in Bath, England. It was very tastefully and simply decorated. I walked in the day of my arrival, it was raining as it does in England. I had a very pleasant experience, eating 'porchetta' or roast pork which was a recipe that belonged to Jamie's friend, the great Italian cook, Genaro.
