Thank you for visiting. 

Curating these photographs was extremely hard and pushing the publish button was put off for a week.… I tend to be a private person, but lately have felt the need to push my boundaries. I have been through a lot, should write a book, but prefer to work it out through creative means. Current status: Safe, Healed, and Trusting in all things good.

There is always a way out alive and safe.
