Chasing Butterflies

  There is a moment of my childhood that I keep going back to, a moment that I’m not entirely sure ever did happen or was just the product of a 6-year-old’s imagination. Nevertheless, it is a nostalgic moment that I keep yearning for. I remember I was playing in the front yard of our... Continue Reading →


The In-Between

I can't remember if I've taken this picture of the sunrise or the sunset. In all honesty it didn't matter, for to me they both signify moments of in-between; in between hellos and goodbyes, between sadness and joy, between the events of today and the hopes of tomorrow.

Gentle pain

  I knew from the start you were not meant to stay and so I hoped for that hourglass to break “let it scatter its sand on an infinite beach” so that none could expose the moment that would take you away But you were an angel with reason, ungoverned by time Yet for days... Continue Reading →
