September 9th Update

Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Since leaving Eugene, Oregon on August 12th, I have been on the road with stops and explorations in Washington, Alberta (Canada), Montana, Wyoming, and finally a brief return to the state of Utah where I am updating from now.

The final weeks of my journey that began last November are beginning to make their appearance in my life now. Since the beginning of these travels I had intended to learn to make a career out of my passion, as well as push myself to actualize my art and vision in a way that could be spoken and received visually without words. I can say that I am beginning to recognize a firm ground in my own spiritual journey. 

From my jeep breaking down to buying a van in Tucson, Arizona to discovering a puppy companion days later, to the beaches of Southern California, to the high sierras and rocky shores of Oregon, to the majestic Cascades of nothern Washington to the divine and powerful Canadian Rockies of Alberta. I found myself making my way back to San Francisco in California where I am beginning to discover a drive to create a home and community outside of what I grew up with in Michigan.

I will finally be updating this blog more frequently! I hope you all enjoy the photographs and journey in its always improving visual glory!
