Every time you step out the door you are exposed to a mild degree of trauma. Road rage, busy people in a mad rush to move from one thing to the next. No time to spare, we are always multitasking. We are people addicted to busyness.
We long for beauty, adventure, and depth in relationship. But we mostly experience cheap replicas, mundaneness, and being misunderstood.
We long for significance and impact. But we mostly experience un-fulfilment and disappointment.
If we slow down enough to notice the beauty around us, it is usually for only a moment. Notifications, smartphones, and email claw for our attention while true beauty fades all around us.
In many senses; to read beautiful words, to write beautiful stories, to reflect on beauty, and to take in the beauty of creation is a wonderful medicine.
“When I find my hear weary and run down, I don’t find relief in social feeds.To be candid, this is a self prescribed medicine. To assign myself the task of regularly writing and pondering the themes of beauty and adventure.
I wanted to gather a collection of writings that would inspire others. I have no ambition to monetize this site. And that gives me freedom to focus on the most important thing, to simply create.
If you like the sound of that, feel free to stick around.
