A Canadian expat in Asheville, NC, I will be ever-grateful for being born on a sunny day.
For as long as I can remember, I've had an affinity for blank books and empty boxes. At an early age, the blank pages became a canvas for words and reflections, evolving into a passion for journaling, while the boxes continue to fill with treasures from a collection of life experiences.
Having traveled to more than 25 countries and connected with people of all ages and cultures, I wholeheartedly believe that as human beings, what we have in common far surpasses any differences between us.
At a micro level, this blog is my attempt to transfer my personal journaling skills into writing that inspires introspection and helps us to feel more connected to ourselves, one another and the world around us. In the big picture, it is my grand hope that through this introspection and connection, we can cultivate more empathy, resilience and optimism in the world.
