there is magic, wonder and beauty in every moment of life if we choose to be open to it. in this rapidly changing world there have been countless times i have struggled to find purpose in the daily routine. struggled to stay connected to those important when there is physical distance between. after experiencing some of the invasive and unforgiving aspects of our digital world, dealing with privacy and pressure from society to fit into a certain category it all became too overwhelming for me to stay 'present' in the digital world. after taking a massive leap away from social media, removing all aspects of 'seeking approval or feedback' from others and travelling inwards to rediscover who i truly am and what this life means for me has been the best journey yet. whether i am ready or not, our world is evolving and i finally feel open again to the experience of sharing and evolving with it.
to quote Paulo Coelho "to realise one's destiny is a person's only obligation" - The Alchemist. my destiny is to create and share. ever since i could remember i have been creating, and for me creation is a fluid form of therapy, discovery and love. i am constantly surprised by the many ways in which i can express myself creatively, most passionately through cooking, art, photography and movement. i see this photo blog as a new and exciting expression of my creativity, a space to journal my thoughts, share my worldly experiences and create community with like minded humans. i intend to use this space as a photo journal of my travels, artwork and above all showcase the incredible nature we are lucky enough to be connected to on this earth.
peace and love to all.
