We are all sharing this planet called EARTH.It’s a wonderful place with lots of inspiration all around it.Let’s be kind to every living organ on Earth ,protect it as it’s the only place we have to share,travel the roads ,swim in the oceans and lakes.If you could travel anywhere on Earth which content would you choose to explore?My curious mind wants to know where your best adventures have been.
I am working on my new book called “Sleeping Is For The Dead”.Today I sure one of the paintings and captions.
