This is the beginning of a fearless and most curious journey. It’s not a travel blog and there is no map or definite destination. But there is a traveller.
Her name is Rosie.
She’s on a great human adventure; a quest to meet humans from all walks of life, share their stories and step into their worlds.
On this journey, Rosie explores and champions our humanity and it’s ability to help us understand each other, bridge us and connect us despite our differences.
In a divided world fearful of ‘difference,’ Rosie (and friends) choose to focus on what it is to be ‘human,’ our common ground. Rosie chooses one human condition topic at a time and sets out to meet and learn from people with stories and experiences that will enlighten us, challenge us and perhaps help us reflect on our own life journey.
Join Rosie and the Rosie goes community for an epic human adventure. Together we will explore, learn, grow and share our experiences of ‘being human.’
“Being heard and understood is one of the greatest desires of the human heart.” – Richard Carlson

It was during those first couple days that I self-diagnosed myself as stark-raving mad, however that kind of thinking did not make things better or change the fact that ‘it’s too late baby girl, you’re already in Ukraine.Keep reading
He took her hand for the first time. He was finally old enough to marry her. From then on, Alexander and Tatiana would walk together; again and again and again and even now, when their road is wounded with gaping holes, bombed and obliterated and no longer exists.Keep reading
I’m learning that despite the worst of humanity being in the spotlight, it is also a time when we see humanity at its best and how powerful it is, how it prevails. How what you give out, counts. How your actions have a ‘ripple effect’ that goes on and on, that feeds into a culture and that becomes our experience.Keep reading
