Self Portrait – Traveler’s collection 15.5 X 21   Charcoal/Photo

If my generation is going to live up to 100, I am drifting into the second half of my life.  I have never had such an urge to search for a more meaningful and significant life.  I love to travel.  I enjoy meeting people of all backgrounds, visiting places that I have never been to, and experiencing the unexpected encounters and surprises.  During my travel, I collect the toilette from the hotels. When I gather enough free soap bars or shampoo bottles, I donate them to the homeless shelters.  Now my traveling not only gives me great pleasure of getting first-hand encounters of the world, but has I found the impacts on the welfare of others at the end of each trip.
