Last summer, I told a dear friend of mine that I wanted to start a blog.  Again.  This time, I wanted a great name.  Something snazzy and peppy — like me.  I knew that this dear friend of mine was the person to consult, and he didn’t disappoint.

Yes, “BhanVoyage” is a spin on my given name.  But it’s more than that.  It is a reminder that our lives are a journey.  While there are some great destinations along the way, arriving isn’t the goal.  It’s the process of getting there.  Staying afloat, bailing buckets of water as I go, is what this blog is about.

It isn’t always easy or graceful.  My suede stilettos get wet and my mascara is often running from the ocean spray.  I say prayers of thanks for smooth waters and prayers for protection in storms.  I look to the lighthouses the Creator has placed along the shore as my guides.  And I cling to my traveling companions, whether they be for a day, a month, or a lifetime.  And when it all shakes out in the end, I’m sure that I’ll be able to say “it’s been a very good journey.”
