“The geographical pilgrimage is the symbolic acting out an inner journey.
The inner journey is the interpolation of the meanings
and signs of the outer pilgrimage.
One can have one without the other.
It is best to have both.”
I think Thomas Merton had it right and for me, photography has been the passport that drives that journey. I believe that it's essential to follow your deepest passions and I truly believe there is honor in seeking out your calling and purpose. Speak your dream out loud and live it. Whether it be the people you want in your life or the path you want to travel. Live it shamelessly and truthfully, even in the darkest of times. Don't abandon it. In my own life, I've noticed a synchronicity to it, an obvious algorithm. When I'm on course, it flows. Always giving, always moving forward, always enlightening. Fueled by gratitude and stalled by ego.
