About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Curious. Always on the move.
Love getting lost... whether it is in beautiful cities or in dramatic wild landscapes.
Music Lover & Art addicted.
Always, always see the positive side of things.

“I am one of the searchers. There are, I believe, millions of us. We are not unhappy, but neither are we really content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves, hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power, its unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests and mountains deserts and hidden rivers, and the lonely cities as well James Kavanaugh

PHILOSOPHY

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget."

Arundhati Roy

I can either be found with my camera or my backpack... pretty often both, and even sometimes horse backpacking while tacking picture.
If not, I must either be found with a huge book and some dark coffee.
