I’m often asked why I called my blog ‘The Diaries of a Migratory Bird’, and the answer is simple:

“It’s about journal entries that chart my migration around the world, as I learn how to fly as birds do – free of baggage.”

Within the pages of this journal, it’s pictures, posts and notes, I share the lessons I’m learning about life, mind, body and flow. The intention is to connect the people that are questing through life with the techniques, practices and places that have the potential to evolve us. Think of it as a scrapbook of all the things that have nourished, grounded and balanced me the most.
