Greetings!I'm Valarie and I am committed to Improving Life through "People/Planet Relations.” Whether it’s via the books I Write and Publish, building Labyrinths and Secret Gardens all over the World, living in a world of sound as a composer, musician and sound practitioner, or immersing myself in Urban Exploring and Global Wandering, my ultimate Goal is to share the Beauty and Wonder of the World we live in with Like-Minded people. As a Business Woman, Mother, Author, Publisher, Musician, Teacher, World Traveler and Explorer of Ancient Ruins and mystical places as well as being a complete Yarn Harlot, my mission for the Second Half of life is to share my Perspectives and Insights with fellow Roamers, Students of Life and Renaissance Women. So Welcome! Have a look around, find a few Adventures, and Discover exciting inspirations. I am so Glad you are Here.
