    A Conversation with a Solo World Traveler

    Today I have the pleasure of sharing with you an interview with Mary Derouard, a solo world traveler who at the age of 55 when many of us would be settling for a trip to someplace warm and spending time with family, started traveling the world solo. She's now been to 70 countries and visited 7 continents, and is still exploring new destinations around the world.

    James Bond, Dog Pilot to the Rescue

    “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” —Mahatma Gandhi I find it inspiring to read about others' journeys to finding purpose and enjoy sharing stories of the same. Today I'm sharing with you an interview with none other than James Bond (formerly known as Jaroslaw Przygodzinksi), a Polish immigrant now dog pilot who with his wife, Denise, founded "Life Rescue Ministry", a non-profit organization that operates "flights for life" for homeless dogs.
