"Individuality".  That each of us was born unique and it is best served for everyone that we don't oppress this or block it in others. The human spirit and mind are so much more capable than we realize. 

When I was 9 years old I lost my sight to a horrible accident and although very painful, it was my fondest memory.  A month of having my eyes bound only to have the bandages removed in a dark room for salve from a caring father.  When I was finally allowed to go out into the sunshine I saw the depths of colours like never before.  The world before me was 3-D in form and hue and brightness of colour.  Somewhere in my childhood, I developed Chromethesia where when I hear music, I see beautiful colours moving through my head.  I am blessed.


I believe all lives are difficult, as is my own, and we solve struggle by being true to ourselves from the core of the person we were born to be.  Own thyself.  I am inspired by those who do so, against the normal and find the inner strength deep within our reserves, to guide through uncharted waters.

Every moment is an incredible blessing and it is in the moment where I reside.
