Miss Rumphius

Miss Rumphius

Young Alice confides in her grandfather that she knows what she will do with her life:  travel to far off places and live by the sea.  Her grandfather wisely advises her that she has left one very important life task off her list:  to make the world a a more beautiful place.  

Come along with Alice as she travels the world and searches for the way she can make a beautiful mark on the world.  Gentleness, adventure, and the wonder of the differences in the corners of our world gather together with whimsy and delight to celebrate life and Alice's zest for it.  

Eventually she discovers her own mission for creating beauty where she lives.  The quiet challenge to us is to go on our own quest and to uncover our own individual way to contribute beauty with our lives.
