A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

Capturing Moments - Kat

 

My camera see's what my heart sees, and what I saw in Kat was nothing but good since first meeting her her. A kind person, intelligent, beautiful and somewhat stubborn at times haha. One day we went out for a run, she danced after a small adventure we had, and I felt compelled to put together a little video. 

 


 

Zip - Lining

 

Melena and I were going through some difficult times, each of us on our own little journey to re-identify ourselves. 

 

"I always wanted to try Zip Lining. My dad and brothers did it in Nicaragua. It sounded like fun. "

 

"Yeah? So why don't we go zip lining!?"

 

"Umm, where?"

 

"There's one near Orlando. Let's go! Like, this weekend!"

 

"OK!"

 

Sky Diving - Facing Fears

I want to travel, but flying has been one of the major obstacles why I have not traveled much.This fear crippled me and made me come up with excuses time and time again as to why I shouldn't go to X destination or Y destination. I wanted to do something about this fear by facing it, and what better way to do so than by jumping out of a plane?! It was an incredible experience shared by others who have never skydived before. After the skydive, we formed a pact to do more things akin to this as a group! Peru is on our targets, and I look forward to it! I will be publishing a new group video soon.

 

Special thanks to Nava for identifying my stress during the flight up and holding my hand throughout the ascend. That was powerful.

 


 

New York City Marathon 2016

 

So back in November, I went to NYC to run the NYC Marathon. I stayed with my cousin, Joanna, who made my entire weekend enjoyable. While she made me walk SO MUCH before the race, she treated me to experiencing life through a New Yorker's eyes, not just the tourist spots. I love it. I have a tremendous amount of gratitude for her. From taking me to get my BIB, showing me places to eat, cooking for me, leaving me food before the race, waiting for me at the finish line with clothes to change into (it was freaking cold!), I am fortunate to have her in my life. Not to mention how much she was there for me during my divorce.
