3,500 miles, 14 states, 2 provinces, lessons learnt: We are not built to do big things alone, we are built to do them together

Today’s been my last full day in NYC, and in America. And I’m a bit sad about it. This nearly month trip has been a blast and an inspiration. It’s been a frank reminder that our time is too valuable to let a moment go to waste. We need steal as much life as weContinue reading “3,500 miles, 14 states, 2 provinces, lessons learnt: We are not built to do big things alone, we are built to do them together”

A New Way. Can You Help Some People Who Mean Alot To The World, and To Me?

Throughout our lives, we will come to find ourselves in a lot of different places. A lot of different rooms. A lot of different corners. A lot of different wheres. Those wheres will be unexpected. They will surprise us, scare us, change everything, change nothing, and break our hearts. I’ve found myself in some prettyContinue reading “A New Way.

Adventures Ahead: The Lake Moon

I got my 6th USA work visa approved on Thursday in London and now I can allow my trip to feel real. It’s been 3 years since I had the real freedom to leave the UK for a long-ish period of time. I’ve been pretty poorly in-general and then clinical placement or school work andContinue reading “Adventures Ahead: The Lake Moon”

On Navigating Stuckness

I’ve loved a lot of cities, but I didn’t know what it was like to be *in love* with a city, until New York.  Today I take my flight home (and i’m bringing the shingles back with me too). Whilst I’m not best pleased to leave, it marks another summer that I’m still here, kickin’Continue reading “On Navigating Stuckness”

Skateboarding produces space, but also time and the self.

My bike (which I made from scratch) is pretty mushed up from when I got hit by a car 2 weeks ago. The front wheel is about as damaged as my ribs. As a result I was feeling pretty lost at getting from A to B. Sure I can walk, but it’s slow and boring.Continue reading “Skateboarding produces space, but also time and the self.”

Everything is fragile.

Mid-20’s isn’t that old, but I feel like I’ve aged 2 lifetimes in the past 3 years. Maybe aging like that makes you look back a bit more. Just as you can see from my blog, my focuses in life have shifted; I’m not just looking for self-improvement in what I can change per-say, but  moreContinue reading “Everything is fragile.”

The Perfect Summer

This image pretty much encapsulates the awesomeness of the summer. I’m sad to say my American 2011 adventure is coming towards the end – but maybe I’ll do the whole thing all over again next year. Try and get another show in NYC. The more I do the job for the Y, the more IContinue reading “The Perfect Summer”
