Traveller, there are no paths, paths are made by walking .  -Antonio Machado

"It is good good to be back home, how I missed this time zone, strangers are exciting their mystery never ends, but there's nothing like looking at your own history in the faces of your friends..." (here)

Beth Nelson is a friend that I met many moons ago on this journey that I've called "You Have Been Here Sometime."  She's become a dear friend through correspondence, an old-fashioned pen pal of sorts, a connection in the vast sea, a light in the distance.

Her online journal  "by land by air by sea" has been a source of continual inspiration, her work is simply visual poetry, reflecting on voyages, the sea, photography, art, and her life with her family. Beth Nelson is an an art director, stylist, print maker, product developer, to name a few. Take a moment to look at her work over the past 20 years, it is simply remarkable. 

Beth, looking forward to your next project, and your next voyage.  X David John
