journey's end.

My South Pacific adventure is officially coming to an end... as the sun sets behind me I fly over the ocean -headed for a new chapter in life.

Throughout my time in Melbourne -I had the opportunity to meet with beyond blue -Australia's national depression initiative as well as the Dax Cunningham collection -a psychiatric art gallery -1 of only a handful around the world. Both meetings reinforced my passion to pursue art -not necessarily as a therapist, but as an artist -focused on celebration of spirit versus diagnosis of illness.

I am sincerely overcome with emotion as I reflect on where life has taken me/the extraordinary path I am on. My spirit is overwhelmed by the incredible puzzle/inspired to keep searching for missing pieces/motivated to leave no stone unturned. My heart encourages me to travel/learn about other cultures/unite hearts and minds through the universal voice of art.
