This is a book of blessings and inspirations for any trip, undertaking, or new phase in life from starting college to moving to a new city or traveling to a new destination. Going Places is filled with humor, fun, and wise quotes to encourage the first step, and to remind us that the journey is the destination.
For this new book, Mina Parker turned to a childhood favorite. She says this book was inspired by Dr. Seuss' "OH The Places You'll Go " about the new ventures big and small. She offers inspirational quotes from Isadora Duncan, Ezra Pound, Dr. Seuss, Thomas Edison, and many others. She pairs them with her own words of wisdom and Daniel Talbott's lush and evocative photographs to offer the ideal gift for anyone undertaking a new life adventure or needing the encouragement to do so.
