Never timid, she has used color as an intimate expression of her inner self. These forays into her expeditions of psyche portray revelations of a playful yet sophisticated voyageur, and we are happily embarked with her on this personal journey of self discovery. A trip such as this challenges even a Marco Polo. You travel through emerald valleys, magenta rivers and climb to heights of golden mounds, you explore down paths deeper and more mystical than when you are just out walking, all in the blinking of an eye or digital conveyance.

In Human History, there have been many Great Explorers. From all that has taken place, from those who bravely risked their lives to search out what very few others would, these daring individuals... More > have left their mark within the hearts and minds of many. There have been many such as, Christopher Columbus, who is the main character for discovering the New World. Ferdinand Magellan, who is credited for the first voyager around the world. Marco Polo, who bravely went to explore China and Asia, and was heavily mocked by the existing Belief Systems at the time, to name a few. I would say that the Astronauts, those who flew up in dangerous mechanical rocket ships, would most certainly be at the top of the list as courageous Great Explorers. They too, only scratched the surface of what is really possible. But, so very little is known about The Greatest Explorer of ALL, of the earth world and what is known as The Real Far Country, and that is Rebazar Tarzs. www.DuaneTheGreatWriter.Info< Less
