The Nations are calling…

You know that feeling, urging to do something. You know like Moana and being drawn to the ocean. Over the years I have had this urge that draws me, speaks to me and drives me slightly crazy. Maybe you know what I mean, when the thoughts can’t stop, and distract you from other things. When
