Ocean and Devotion
OCEAN AND DEVOTION
When I was ten I read the book Dove and did an 8mm movie book report about it. Even then I knew I wanted to be a photographer and after reading that book I knew I wanted to sail around the world. I feel like I have been on that path my whole life and along the way, I have taken many side trips. I feel like my goal is still the same but the depth and purpose of it keeps unraveling.
I have been inspired by many people along the way but most recently I read the book Swell and immediately connected with the life Liz Clark has created for herself. She has the same sense of independence, adventure, and tenacity I have had since my twenties. I haven’t always had the confidence to engage my dreams, but I have always had the dreams. Every person I meet who has followed their dreams through highs and lows brings me closer to achieving mine. Thank you Liz for living life wholeheartedly.
I have continued to make work in the ocean because it is the sweet spot of devotion and ocean when I'm there. Even though I haven't accomplished my youthful goal of sailing around the world I have stayed true to my dreams and know that I am living my life with integrity day to day.
