It Is Possible
While sitting on a little couch in the upstairs loft of a favorite coffee shop in town, listening to the little snores of the child I was taking care of as icicles hung heavy in the window, More Than Lyme popped into my head.
I was 22, new to Oregon, and had absolutely no idea what or how I was going to anything in the face of this disease, let alone connect, form friendships, and share parts of my story. But here we are, and not without the help of all of you.
Community, empowerment, creativity, story telling, and adventures, were the building blocks, and now, as I watch the lights from the ferry dance across the water, making our way to the little Island I called home for most my life, I’m humbled, in awe, and so incredibly grateful that today, we set the foundation for the first ever in-person MTL Adventure.
I really cannot wait to meet you all! Still doesn’t feel real, but before we know it, the first #morethanlyme meet up in Portland (March 2018), will be under way. 🙋🏻♀️ who’s coming?! Snap by @elliexplores, post inspired by a sweet message I received from the angel @thehaileyallen
In the end, we will conserve only what we love. We love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are thought. - Baba Dioum ///// 365 days ago, I was in the Rockies, photographing and freezing my little hands off! Now it's learning all about geology, human history, and flora & fauna!
We're living in the weirdest place in the world. We go to nude beaches, we dance ecstatically. We work in exchange for a place to live, we grow our own food to eat. We speak the language of aloha and walk in our bare feet. We ride on the back of strangers' trucks and keep our bodies hairy 😂💜 To some, this would be the oddest place ever; But it's the only life that feels real to me.
La capacidad de estar solo es la capacidad de amar.
Puede parecerte paradójico,pero no lo es. Es una verdad existencial: solo aquellas personas que son capaces de estar solos,son capaces de amar,de compartir,de ir al centro más profundo de otra persona,sin poseer al otro,sin ser dependiente del otro,sin reducir al otro a una cosa y sin convertirse en adicto al otro.

This boulder and I have some unfinished business. After a few burns of butchering the beta, @hipmitch showed up to spray me down on the v8 exit that features a rad dyno to finish this bad boy. Unfortunately I was exhausted and had to take the easier exit bypassing the dyno.. 😓😓 I can't wait to hit the southeast soon !! #adventurevisionaries#visionisourpassion
This time of year gets reallllll quiet... but whose dreaming about their 2018 goals!? I sure am! And I want to help all the people around me succeed and reach their goals too! We need each other. Whether it's inspiration, motivation, support, resources, knowledge, we all have something to give each other. What can I give you?
Just reminiscing on one of the more memorable lessons I gave @mavsmerrill this summer. At the end of it, she wanted to try and jump onto Jack like I could. You can tell Jack is not amused, but used to it 😂😁
I was falling. Falling through time and space and stars and sky and everything in between. I feel for days and weeks and what felt like lifetime across lifetimes. I fell until I forgot I was falling. 💕
There’s one little duck, two little ducks, three little ducks 🦆🦆🦆 ok this won’t work, there are too many ducks in here 😂😂😂 had such a lovely afternoon walk and was not expecting to see so many busy little duckies on this lake, but our babe was so mesmerised so we had to stay a little longer 🦆👀💚🦆👀💚 #quackquack#busyducks#wildvancouver
Was so great to be back to one of our fav places and catch up with this sweet mama @poploredanaa and her gorgeous babe @eva_maria_ca 💙 Then see you guys soon on the other side of the mountains? 😉😎🐞#vancouverisawesome#kitsbeach
For some reason, I can't stop thinking about my trip to South Africa two years ago. There was so much meaning in that trip that re-visiting these photos are bringing so much joy to my life at the moment. If only I had a better camera during that trip. 🙈
