If any phrase could describe my current perspective on life, it would have to be from the wonderfully pointed poetry of Brian Andreas:

“Deciding everything is falling into place, perfectly.

As long as you don’t get too picky about place, or perfectly.”

// Brian Andreas 

Presently place, and perfectly, are constantly changing. Although originally from Birmingham, Alabama, home is now an accumulation of spaces, places and people. Sewanee, Tennessee was home for 4 years meanwhile studying for my Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies at the University of the South. It was there on the Cumberland Plateau that I was reintroduced to (what I once learned in a different context with the Alabama Waldorf School), that nature and the outdoors are the most wonderful resources of energy, community and adventure. This is a truth that inspires much of what I do, professionally, recreationally and artistically.

For over a year, southern Chile has been home, between teaching English and taking every opportunity to explore the very diverse natural spaces and cultures of the country.¬†Artistically speaking, watercolor and photography have been recent, travel friendly mediums while oil painting will have to wait until gifted with the joy of staying in one place…or a travel set.

My place and “perfectly” currently has no permanence nor professional title. So for now – environmentalist, explorer and artist will have to do.
