About the Call For Entry
We all have those special places in times, locations, that exist in the back of our minds. 
Show us a place you see when you close your eyes before you sleep. Show us a place
you have seen that makes your heart skip a beat, gets your adrenaline running and pumping
makes you want to be "there" and keeps you longing for more.
These locations can be from your favorite childhood playground, your favorite vacation getaway
and even your secluded mediative background oasis.  Show us your destinations and adventures.
