Last week I started a project that I have wanted to work on for as long as I can remember.
Inspired by the Earth and the call of nature, I am creating this project of my journey through spaces I hold sacred, places right in my backyard.
I am trying to get to know myself, my passions and my relationship better than I ever have, by learning from my Earth and home.
I constantly challenge my fears, my passions and myself for my art daily, and I want this project to be indicative of that.
The first location we used for this is one that has come to grow deeply into my world; the one place that never ceases to leave me in awe.
Every time we visit this place, it illustrates itself to us in a hundred different ways.
These dunes have taught me so much over the three trips we have made out here.
By having to illegally camp in complete darkness with no service to send a Tweet or post an Instagram photo for miles, you learn a lot about yourself and your relationship.
Stepping out of the car to a new moon’s sky where you can see the milky way with your naked eye, or the unbelievable amount of stars you can see even when there is a full moon; it's something that, living in Orange County, you would never imagine possible.
Here, I have found that no matter how many times you go somewhere, there will always be different obstacles and you never stop learning.
The same goes in my life and my relationship.
Whether it be a new or full moon, or it being impossible to sleep because it's thirty degrees and windy or so hot that the tent feels like a magnifying glass, you find that you can deal with it in a new and, most of the time, completely unexpected way.
The most important thing to realize is that your life and relationships are ever-changing and evolving.
Discover a place that does the same for you.
