About Me

Welcome to the online blog for traveler/writer/photographer Steven Barber. Come in. Relax. Take off your shoes and socks -- or any other article of clothing, this is the internet. Have a look around. I hope to intrigue, amuse, entertain, and maybe provoke you just a little. I love to find adventure. All I need is a change of clothes, my Nikon, an open mind and a strong cup of coffee.

Today is the American Thanksgiving Day, a day upon which we take the time to appreciate those things in our lives which are good. My ancestors were at that first Thanksgiving dinner alongside Native Americans, and while we -- the collective we -- have made numerous mistakes over the intervening centuries, we are all merely human and must work to improve ourselves a little bit at a time. We are not perfect, and will never achieve perfection, but believe in the need to strive for it.

Thanksgiving is an American holiday -- Canadian too, on a different day -- but it's a day in which all people, everywhere, may take a moment to themselves and appreciate those things that make our lives worth living.

I am thankful for my family and friends. They are a source of love, inspiration and energy which make my life such a positive one. 

(And one side note: Yes, I know Williamsburg, above, wasn't the site of the first Thanksgiving. I simply have not been back to Plymouth with my digital camera. So I went with the next best thing.)
