Life is a collection of stories and these are some of mine.
Sometimes I’m asked why I go to the trouble. I get suggestions of monetizing and advertising and what I might do to get “likes”… a dubious metric if ever there was one. None of that matters. I spend hours and days curating this blog and editing endless streams of photographs for one reason.
I want to inspire you.
There is an entire world that exists outside the machine of winning and achieving and displaying and in that world I’ve found beauty, peace, and a truer version of myself. I want to share that world with you and, if I’m very lucky, you’ll be inspired to seek it out for yourself.
I hope you do. All our lives will be better for it.
So read this blog. Post your comments and ask your questions. Dream your dreams and make your plans. Leave this place with a seed planted in your heart. If your life grows into something more grounded and meaningful, I hope you’ll be able to say that I helped in some small way.
The boring third-person stuff is below if you enjoy that kind of thing.
