"I don’t want to be
the other half of your soul.
I want to be the one
who reminds you
that you’re already whole."
"I have lost and loved and won and cried myself to the person I am today."
My tendency is to get so distracted by the diversity of the many spokes of life, that I am busy but not truly life giving, all over the place but not focused. Henri nouwen
For his collection I Traveled the Seven Seas and I’m Still Alive, photographer Alessandro Puccinelli captured images of garbage taken from the ocean. Puccinelli says of the project, “I wanted to idealize the objects found on the beach, pointing attention to the fact that after being in between storms, waves, and hot sun, these objects are still there.” The photos are an example of how, despite many trials and tribulations, resiliency allows us to remain intact.
"It always seems impossible until it’s done." - Nelson Mandela
