ADVENTURE

COLOSSAL

I PONDER SELLING EVERY OBJECT IN MY LIFE, KEEPING WHAT I CAN CARRY, AND VENTURING OFF TO SEE EVERY LAST CREVASSE OF THIS EARTH. THERE IS NOTHING THAT COMPARES TO THE VASTNESS AND SCALE OF THE NATURAL WORLD, AND I REVEL IN THE FEELING THAT I AM A BRIEF, SMALL BEING GROUNDED BY COLOSSAL FORMATIONS THAT NO HUMAN CAN EVER REPLICATE. I STRIVE TO CREATE SPACES OF BALANCE, HISTORY, AND INTRIGUE, BUT THERE IS NO RECREATING THAT WHICH IS TIMELESS BECAUSE IT HAS INEVITABLY BECOME A PART OF TIME.

LOST + FOUND

"TRAVEL IS FATAL TO PREJUDICE, BIGOTRY, AND NARROW-MINDEDNESS, AND MANY OF OUR PEOPLE NEED IT SORELY ON THESE ACCOUNTS." - MARK TWAIN

OUT OF ALL OF THE STRANGE PLACES I'VE BEEN IN THE WORLD, I HAVE NEVER FALLEN SO HARD FOR A COUNTRY. COLOMBIA IS THE EMBODIMENT OF RESILIENCE, AFFECTION, AND A SPIRIT UNLIKE ANY CULTURE I'VE EVER WITNESSED. THERE IS A POWERFUL BEATING HEART WITHIN THAT NATION AND IT HAS CAPTIVATED MINE INDEFINITELY. 

NATURAL WONDERS

NATURE HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MAIN SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR ME. IT'S FOREVER IN STYLE, YET COMPLETELY EPHEMERAL. IT'S THE ONE PLACE WHERE I CAN PUT MY MIND TO REST AND NEVER WANT TO CHANGE A SINGLE THING, UNLIKE EVERY INTERIOR SPACE I HAVE YET TO GET MY HANDS ON. THE COLOR PALETTES AND JUXTAPOSITIONS OF THE NATURAL WORLD ARE ABSOLUTELY SUBLIME AND HAVE THIS WONDERFUL ABILITY TO BE PERFECTLY IMPERFECT. 

IMPRINTED

I'M FINDING MYSELF COMPLETELY DISTRACTED BY IMAGES OF ROCK FORMATIONS AT THE MOMENT, WHICH MEANS IT'S TIME TO START RESEARCHING MY NEXT ADVENTURE. THE NATURAL WORLD HAS THIS WONDERFUL ABILITY TO REVEAL THE EPHEMERALITY OF HUMAN LIFE, ADN IT'S WHAT AIDS MY DESIRE TO WORK WITH STONES AND METAL . TO LEAVE SOMETHING BEHIND THAT WILL MAKE AN IMPRINT.
