The purpose of this blog is to analyze the world through the open-eyed, open-eared fidelity of a curious mind.

 I cultivate my sense of experiential awareness through interpretive prose, imagery, and illustration. I have designed this blog as a globalized citizen who appreciates the need for multidimensional, multicultural communication. As I travel, live, and work across the globe, I am committed to illustrating all things strange and all things beautiful.

There is a wispy, esoteric consciousness that lies between sleep and awake.  A place where you can confront your fears and speak to the dead.  You stalk through the livid memories of previous days, months, years, playing out the what-ifs in a grand romantic fallacy. It’s in this naked, judgeless state of half awareness that you enjoy a sense of clarity, a tangerine perfection. With the roiling urgencies of life snuffed out, you have the chance to commune with raw reality and, anything is possible.

  1. Hi Jessica, nice to meet you. I’ve been travelling around your blog – you are an excellent writer! I loved the piece on the Titanic – “why didn’t I think of that?”! And the piece on the Fijian boy. We travel a lot in 3rd world countries (though I’ve been told that’s no longer the PC term) and I never never assume that because people are poor that they are also unhappy. I also know that because a person is well off it doesn’t mean happiness. People can be so confused! They confuse stuff for happiness.
    Thank you for visiting our blog and for following. I hope you enjoy the stories of our journey, both inner and outer.

  2. Hi Alison,

    Thank you so much for your kind words! It is absolutely wonderful to hear feedback from a fellow blogger. I haven’t been at the game very long, but hopefully I will have more time to dedicate to it soon and can upgrade my page a bit.

    I find your blog really inspiring and you make some really poignant and illustrative points. I will be scooting around it in more detail soon and I will leave you a comment there as well!

    I especially loved your idea of viewing the body as a hologram, “a structural representation of the mind’s beliefs in physical form”. I am planning to write a post soon that has to do with dreams corresponding with mental and physical health and I find that all three are inherently linked. Having a positive outlook and being enthusiastic about my pursuits actually makes me feel healthier – and couple that with the emotional venting that occurs during dreams….we are surely on to something!

  3. Hi, thank you for stopping by my humble blog. I love they way yours is set up. I was heartbroken to read some of your stats on homeless dogs. I also like your blog on females traveling alone; some of those words were so familiar. I admire your work and travels, keep it up!
