Rise Up

Rise Up

Isla de Barú, Cartagena, Colombia. 2018 "Ready or not, here I come, you can't hide." That's what the storm says. That's what time says. That's what nature says. (That's what The Fugees say).

Everything is Everything

Everything is Everything

Cold Spring, NY. 2018 “What is meant to be, will be. After winter, must come spring. Change, it comes eventually.” - Lauryn Hill I’m so ready for it. I feel ready for a lot of changes.

Hello Again, Goodbye.

Hello Again, Goodbye.

This space you are in, becomes your state of mind. Listen to your heart, and pay attention to your body. How are [...]

Like a Bird

Rome, Italy. 2017. Every morning, when I wake up, I am reminded that I am magic. I am powerful, over my thoughts, my words and my reality. I'd like to think that my sense of freedom has elevated in the last few weeks. I am soaring to new heights, and this feeling is extremely liberating. [...]

The Root is Only the Beginning…

The Root is Only the Beginning…

Brooklyn, NY. 2016 Thank God for the morning sun. It's gotten me through many days. Shoved its way through my blinds. The rays reaching...touching my heart and my mind. Bringing me to my feet, to defeat, yet another day. Rise up. Make a way. Make a mark. A new start, toward making yet another difference. The part where I'm in yet, another [...]
