What we're about

This meetup is a collective of creative and curious souls who want to be inspired by the world and each other. Whether it’s a visit to a Museum in New York, a concert in Princeton or watching the sunset on a junk in Ha Long Bay, we can share the wonders together.

I travel for inspiration, for connection, for knowledge and just for fun. I have wandered around the world quite a bit, but it’s a very big world and there are many places yet to see. From my travels I have learned what a wonderful journey can be from an artist’s perspective. It’s really not about how many cathedrals you can see in a day but how greatly you have been inspired. Inspired by beauty, by people, by culture, customs and even food; I have had a dream of creating experiences for those who want to take in the magnificence of this world at the right time of year, the right time of day and sharing it with kindred spirits you already know. Sounds about perfect to me! For example, if I’m going to Provence, I want to go in July when the lavender is in full bloom. I want to go to the fields later in the day when the sun is golden and stay until the sun goes down. I want to search out the most wonderful restaurants in Provence and savor their amazing cuisine and I want to do this with a group of people who know each other a bit. And let’s not forget, the inspiration can be as close as our own back yard, such as a new museum opening or a Tony winning Broadway show!

A little about me…. I’ve been a professional photographer for over 18 years. I’ve actually been designated a Master photographer by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). I am one of the few women to have this distinction. I’m also a lover of travel, food, art, music, theater and great conversation! This group should satisfy my many pleasures. I presently facilitate Princeton Fine Dining also. Whether you are a painter, a writer, a photographer, a musician, a gourmet, an architect or just someone who enjoys all the wonders and culture of the world, please join me. You may reside in Princeton or San Francisco; it really doesn’t matter. This group is about travel, beauty, culture and camaraderie.

Join me for the adventure.

The Deep Blue Sea at the National Theater

Online event

Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece contains one of the greatest female roles in contemporary drama. Helen McCrory and director Carrie Cracknell reunite following the acclaimed Medea in 2014. A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer of post-war civility burns a brutal sense of loss and longing. The play will begin at at 2:00PM To view the show just log on to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uw68DjwzexU
