There’s only one person we’ll ever really have a relationship with, and that’s ourselves. And for most of us that relationship is fractured.

This is my favourite quote, and I try to live by it.

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.

Joseph Campbell

I’m still treasure hunting.

My face

I’m told I have a very expressive face. So I thought, what better way to show the many facets of me than with pictures. As they say, a picture paints a thousand words. Yes, it’s self indulgent and egocentric, yet here we are.
