2012 has been a quiet year since January

compared to other recent years.I spent most of the year at home

in Athens working on my laptop and

the internet occasionally wandering around

Athens and its various sites to see.

I did some internationally traveling

and wandering beginning in March.

March I drove to Sarasota for the 9th

Florida Creativity Weekend and then

across Florida to Palm Beach County

and Boynton Beach to spend some time

with Scott.

August I flew to Brasil for the first time

and spent two and ½ weeks in 3 cities:

Recife, Aracaju and San Paolo thanks to

a mix of Brasilian creativity friends. Those

were two and ½ wonderful weeks filled

with walking, wandering and making

presentations in the 3 cities.I walked beaches, wandered through

several parks, toured museums & several parts of

Recife, Aracaju and San Paolo

After returning from Brasil in August

I traveled to Geneva Park, a YMCA camp 3 hrs

north of Torontoto be part of the 10thMindcamp.

The park is surrounded by water on 3 sides and is heavily forested. People came from Canada (mostly) some from the US and some from Europe. It was a beautiful place to walk each day

from sunrise to sunset.

In October I flew once again to South Africa to wander, travel and to be part of 3 creativity conferences

that friends put on:

18th ACRE, 7th ACRE Edn and 1st ACRE-Namibia.

After the program in Namibia 3 friends and I traveled to Swakopmund, Namibia on the Atlantic Ocean coast where we wandered around and played on quad

bikes on giant dunes.

In South Africa I walked beautifully

residential landscaped streets, cable-carred

to the top of a mountain, climbed mountains.

After the conferences I spent 7 days with friends

at their beautiful Casa Lee and Casablanca

wedding and events country estates

enjoying the area and great meals.
