When there is so much in this world to do. so much going on. I find it hard to be ok living in such a geographically isolated place. Is this place a selfish place to live?


I really dig this woman's photography, her blog is pretty awesome if I do say so myself.

Living on a boat. a traveling home. sailing from Croatia to Greece. in a blue white and red boat. on a day on the Isalnd of Lefkas, between Nidri and Lefkada, I happened upon quite a few of these shrines. On closer inspection they contain olive oil bottles, trinkets, paintings of the gilded mother and child, and various other personal little trinkets. perhaps they are at a crash site, and are for the deceased?
IN any case, they were a sweet yet strong reminder of the cathoic influence in Greece, and their devotion to their families...

Drink your tea slowly and reverently,
as if it is the axis
on which the world earth revolves
- slowly, evenly, without
rushing toward the future;
Live the actual moment.
Only this moment is life.

- Thich Nhat Hahn

Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.

- Thich Nhat Hanh

Hometown with a heart.....

I am one of the luckiest people to have grown up in Christchurch, New Zealand. Sometimes I don't realise how much I have been shaped by my culture.....this is also quite true when it comes to the fact of spending most of my twenties so far living in the States....
