Travel Sketches And More

November 9, 2019

When I was a kid I could only imagine what the world of 2020 was going to look like. When you're ten years old and it's 1974, you imagine a future filled with the stuff of science fiction. I expected starships and flying cars, androids and world peace. Okay, maybe not world peace, but definitely a futuristic place. The imaginary future of that ten year old has yet to come.

Today we have awesome computers, cell phones and the Internet, all working together to democratize information. Medical advances mean people can live longer, healthier lives. For the first time in history, we can have a live video chat with someone half a world away or up on the International Space Station. We have some of the greatest minds working together to plan a trip to Mars.

We live in some pretty amazing times and yet the sweetest things in life have little to do with technology. The love of family, friends, meaningful work and the opportunity to travel and experience new things is the stuff of a life well-lived. I am thankful for these things and mindful of their blessings in my own life.

Here are some of the sketches and photos from recent travels and some just for fun.
