Beatrice, my second given name, is a name derived from the French name Béatrice, which came from the Latin name Beatrix, which means “she who makes happy” or “bringer of joys and blessings.”

Beatrix is also said to have been earlier derived from Viatrix, a feminine form of the Latin name Viator which meant “voyager, traveller.” The spelling was later influenced by association with the Latin word beatus or “blessed.”

Through meditation, seeking, traveling, photographs, and words, I hope to create and bring happiness to my world.

I hope my search inspires yours.

Mabuhay. Aloha. Namaste.
