ABOUT US – CARPEDM ADVENTURES
Seize the Day: Carpe diem is a phrase from a Latin poem by Horace (Odes 1.11). It is popularly translated as “seize the day.” An interpretation of the phrase might be as an existential cautionary term, much like “eat, drink, travel, and be merry, for tomorrow we die” with emphasis on making the most of current opportunities because life is short and time is fleeting.
Carpe diem has been modified to CarpeDM to reflect an evolution in meaning that not only encompasses the idea of “seizing the day” but of also adding the element of “doing more ” (hence DM) in terms of giving back to the local community.
