LIFE IS A JOURNEY

"The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet." --Lao Tzu
"We are seasoned travelers of the labryinth.  Losing our way and finding 
our way.  Traveling on the beaten path and the road less traveled. 
Eventually finding our way home to the place of spiritual rest and fulfillment.'
