What Am I Doing Here? Well, let me tell you!

Hello and welcome! I am a 26-year-old Intensive Care Nurse and photography enthusiast from Australia, with a passion for travel and adventuring through the natural wilderness and historical concrete jungles. Appreciative of all things creative and wishing to inspire others, I have created this site as a platform to share my photos, stories of travels, and other creative writings and artistic pursuits of mine. I welcome my friends, family, and you, on a journey with me as I frolic adventurously, exploring and immersing myself in the beauty of the world!

Before you go, I leave you with a simple yet powerful favourite quote of mine… ( and yes I may have this exact quote tattooed somewhere upon my skin 😉 )
“To live will be an awfully big adventure” – J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Perfectly Imperfect

P1020479

I almost called you by an old name
Then I realised and had to refrain
Lost in thought, I wasn’t thinking
But it felt so normal

And we’ve moved on
Or so I tell myself
Because 3 weeks in not long enough to mourn
What felt like a lifetime of love

And I’m wishing for one of two things
But as foolish as I am
I know neither are possible
Despite my belief nothing is ever impossible

These days are long
But they aren’t short of fun, laughter or love
And yet my mind still wanders to a pastime
In those scarce moments of silence

And I find you there
In the sunlight, smiling, caught up in my stare
The humbleness of your beauty
Weaving it’s way through my heart

I could never get enough
They say find what you love and let it kill you
Well I would have let you devour me whole
My heart, my mind, my soul, yours for the taking

They say love isn’t perfect
And ours was perfectly imperfect
But it never felt like I was settling
For anything less than extraordinary

And though the distance has been great
In my heart and in my mind
I have never left you
I never thought it could be possible
But I still love you more than the day I met you
