Life is a Daring Adventure

"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" has been a favorite quote of mine for years.  And recently one of my friends, Tamela Rich,  turned her life into a daring mid-life adventure by  riding a motorcycle (that she only learned to ride in March this year) across the United States to Oregon and back. Tamela also used this adventure as a way to raise awareness and money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Check out this interview with Tamela on our local television station this morning

I was at her kickstands down celebration when she arrived safely back in Charlotte yesterday and her suggestion to those present was to always follow your dreams no matter what, and to be of service. That pretty much sums up what I think life should be about.  When Tamela first decided she wanted to do this, she had no idea how she was going to get a motorbike or how she would pay for the trip.  Everything fell into place - as it tends to do when you are following a dream that is uniquely yours.

I think it's no so much what you do, but how you approach what you do that makes life an adventure. I think there are many adventures in your photography.

Joanne, I think you are quite right. Your recent road trip could also be classes as an adventure!
