Ours was born of fire
In a heat that merged our souls
Began with Heartbreak, love and desire
That was never meant to grow old
Together we knew hardship
Together we knew pain
Together we knew love absolutely
There was sunshine in the rain Continue reading
What if we fell?
Looking out that window in a cloud,
What if we fell?
Came crashing, burning to the ground. Continue reading
Her hips carry her softly,
Half a smile lights her face,
With ease in her movement
And an elegant grace. Continue reading
Know the sun will always set,
When it seems only tragedy and hopelessness remain,
It is the light, the stars never forget.
Sadness swallows, but in the end reset,
Tears of sorrow move and fall like rain,
Know the sun will always set. Continue reading
A beast is soothed by beauty
His wildness tamed by splendour
A sweet and tender smile
Demands calmness and surrender
I’m walking down Bourbon Street in the middle of the annual Decadence Parade my vision is blurry, probably due to the unnecessarily alcoholic and large daiquiri I’m holding; coupled with the sweltering humidity. I have one friend from Australia on my left and another from Colombia on my right, both feeling the same way. My bus leaves soon but it’s hard for me to care, I’m having such a great time completely enchanted by the madness of New Orleans.
I have only a few hours left in the country that has given me so much these past months. I’m smiling, near tears, I freaking love New Orleans…
A moment that feels infinite
A dream with an open end
If you believe in the impossible
Perhaps Happiness is possible to defend,

What an incredible human being Richard Feynman was not only did he contribute so much to Science and our understanding of this World, this Universe but he also taught others how to learn not What. This whole series is great if you have the time to see them all but this has to be my favourite. The title Beauty is fitting i believe that Feynmans view of the world was nothing short of Beautiful. He reminds us to Question everything and appreciate the craziness of the human experience in a universe of mystery.
How is it that there is beauty in both the ecstasy and the melancholy of human experience? In the passion of love and in the passion of pain. What is beauty but an experience of intensity in highs and lows?
A shooting star burns through the night sky
Replacing darkness with light
In the moment your paths cross
So Beautiful and wondrous brings tears to the eyes,
Life is good now, I am happy, settled, ready to experience what Bogota has to teach me in the time that I am present. It is a meditative experience adapting and integrating into a new culture, situation and perspective. Life right now is so full of that mystery we all crave, the mystery that gives life awe and wonder, and beauty. It is so refreshing living in the unknown, unsure of my destination but ready to take it on.
This video was recommended to me by a friend who assured me it was a beautiful example of human connection and communication. Tony Robbins is able to take an unresponsive crowd and convince them to listen and be inspired, by the end the entire crowd is on the edge of their seats. It also gives a profound message about decision and connectedness, something that resonated strongly with me after experiencing life the way I have these past months.

Making new friends and missing the ones not with me, I have been having the time of my life sharing this human experience with others. One friend in particular made me so happy and proud for the people I have met and shared a connection in this world. Today is the launch of my friends new blog “Adventuring Home” (check it out here) a blog she has spent months preparing and a lifetime gathering her positive outlook on spirituality, life and well-being. I cannot wait to join the rest of the world in sharing in her message.
