Calgary, AB to Portland, OR (Reckoning and Revelling)

Reckoning and Revelling

How do you begin to let go when your rational mind tells you to hold on good and tight, to the familiar, the comfortable and the normalcy of your life. Urging you to cling to the things that feel real and safe in your everyday. This can be challenging for a nomadic soul that has […]

Box Paper Scissors, Kensington

The First Wave Goodbye

Kensington is a quaint little area of Calgary, close to where we currently live and is one of the first places I came back to after arriving from NYC in 2006. Only one week had passed since my three day drive back from the East Coast with a puppy and a rental SUV, filled from […]

Lost for Good

With big dreams comes bigger responsibility. Most importantly the responsibility to ones self, I believe, to try to see those dreams through.
