In the same thought current as "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" and "The Alchemist", "The Tree That Wanted to Travel" explores the powerful pull of a deep-seated and heart-felt passion that drives the fulfillment of a dream - even against all odds.Such 'super powerful thoughts' change lives, bend our perspective on nature, and allow us to reach our true potential while escaping the undertow of the limiting - although often rational - reasoning of the brain. A short but enriching story, a true odyessy, The Tree That Wanted to Travel parallels our own dreams and struggles to reach beyond patterns of self-limiting beliefs, to see beyond adversity for the change it invites, and to embrace nature's rich journey of creation and trust.The Tree exemplifies the human experience and shows that any journey of self-discovery is actually the art of self-creation, which leads to the realization of our deeply held dreams of the heart.This is true of all of us as we create our lives with our thoughts. Enjoy the journey from wherever you are right now - as this journey never ends, and there is no final destination.So start dreaming...Anything can happen - and it's always right now"The Tree That Wanted to Travel" is intended to instil in us an empathy with nature that is ours to share."Nature always seeks to bloom," said the tropical bird. "To grow, nature shares exponentially and everything is connected; this helps everything grow - even your dreams."

About the Author

Stephen Prinselaar is a professional copywriter and experienced traveller of the land and seas. At eighteen, a sailing dream prompted him to take time out of a budding writing career in advertising and go to sea. He discovered yacht hiking as the ideal way to travel to the lesser-known and most beautiful parts of the world, and to rediscover the inner magnet that guides us all. While journeying, he freelanced for advertising agencies in Perth and Cape Town and compiled a CV that looked more like a sailing log.

Returning to New Zealand at 35, a new adventure began: beginning a family, starting up his own creative agency, and eventually getting his own yacht.

Then, as his children, Luca and Saskia, reached their teenage years, Stephen's next stage unfolded: "Parallel Life", his 38-ft ocean-cruising catamaran has become his home where he lives and writes as he fulfils yet another life-long dream: to bestow upon them the beauty of nature at sea.
