'What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? '
-Thomas Merton, The Wisdom of the Desert, 1960
Total inspiration...this quote.. (I replace God with 'Universe')
"Our deepest fear... is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
by Marianne Williamson
spoken by Nelson Mandela, 1994 Inaugural Speech
and.. inspire. I think if you've inspired others around you and been inspired.. you've been and are adding to a fabulously meaningful life!

Human by Yann Arthus-Bertrand
- incredible quote from José Mujica (former President of Uruguay 2010 to 2015) during the interview for 'Human' :
'We have invented a mountain of superfluous needs. Shopping for new, discarding the old...that's a waste of our lives! When I buy something, when you buy something, you're not paying money for it. You're paying with the hours of life you had to spend earning that money. The difference is that life is one thing money can't buy. Life only gets shorter. And it’s terrible to waste your life losing your freedom.'
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Travelled to 27 international events in 2015 for tango!
Visit a teeny village in india, everyone was so happy to see us even though they couldn't understand us, the children were amazing!I felt so at ease and loved by these strangers!
In Jaisalmer, we got to know some locals, who offered us to go camel riding with their friends, just my sis and I running through dunes away from any other typical tourist spots..spending time with musicians in the jaisalamerian desert in India- incredible to feel so part of a group of people, more than i have felt in my life! so comfortable with myself!
Flying through the rocky, sandy terrain in Pushkar (Rajasthan, India)with my sister on two incredible horses, no fears or worries! whoooosh!
studying PHOTOGRAPHY so fun and evocative!
