About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To Enjoy This Life

ABOUT ME

A friend titled me once as "tryer of new things" So I love opening my mind to possibilities that exist everywhere. Learning and deep exploring different aspects of life daily, is essential. I craft, live music, see music, play music (attempt ukulele), write, rock climb, extreme picnics, do yoga, read, walk, jump in waves, spend a decent amount of time socializing. Have high appreciation for inspiring conversations, alternative lifestyle, ocean life, DIY, design, delicious foods, spanish coffees, organizing, tree houses with hammocks, ridding motor bike in foreign lands, reflecting, hot springs, building, and those moments where you feel so happy to be here right now. Fancy or dive, pretty open minded. There's a little mystery to be discovered. I'm attracted to and dig sincere passionate people.

"Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.”

PHILOSOPHY

Currently ...

"Everybody has to leave, everybody has to leave their home and come back so they can love it again for all new reasons. I want to keep my soul fertile for the changes, so things keep getting born in me, so things keep dying when it is time for things to die. I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago, because a mind was made to figure things out, not to read the same page recurrently. Only the good stories have the characters different at the end than they were at the beginning. And the closest thing I can liken life to is a book, the way it stretches out on paper, page after page, as if to trick the mind into thinking it isn't all happening at once.

I want to repeat one word for you: Leave. Roll the word around on your tongue for a bit. It is a beautiful word, isn't it? So strong and forceful, the way you have always wanted to be. And you will not be alone. You have never been alone. Don't worry. Everything will still be here when you get back. It is you who will have changed."

-Donald Miller, Through Painted Deserts
