                            Every horizon, upon being reached, reveals
another, beckoning in
the distance. Always,
I am on the threshold.

This autobiographical pendant tells the tale of my journey from a 5-college town in western Massachusetts to a tiny tropical island surrounded by azure waters and cooled by the tradewinds, the place I call home. Turn the crank below the operating porthole to watch the sailboat sail on the enameled waves. The box is encrusted with ancient maps and ocean talismans...Can you find the secret drawer?
