Hello fellow bloggers, readers and internet surfers. For many years I have liked the idea of having a blog but have never managed to find the right style or category for my ‘blog’ until recently. After two backpacking trips through Europe and some corny-sounding mindfulness I finally feel as if I can express myself in the desired manner.
Why do I write? I write for myself, I write to try to understand concepts or themes that I am grappling with; I write to get to known myself better, but I mostly write for the love of it. For me there are few greater feelings after writing a passage that truly grasps the essence of life or the nuance of language. Other moments where this can be felt for me is taking a photograph that accurately captures the beauty of a moment, preserving it for a lifetime.
More about me – I am a person with way too many passions; photography, music, art, literature, travel, dance, to say a few. I have a yearning to live my life consciously, and to understand the beauty of a moment. For me this blog is a way to capture my journey of experience, and to share my thoughts and ideas with the unknown void, to send a part of me out into the universe – it’s not about being read, but about being written.
My inspiration: a quote from Max in ‘The Book Thief’, a line that has stuck with me; If your eyes could speak, what would they say?
