I’m at home whenever and wherever I roam. Exploring is to experience a place or moment with all of my senses. The soothing smell of salt air, the clatter of a thousand hermit crabs crawling in the tidal flats, the stars reflecting off the mirrored ocean surface, salt water on my lips, toes dancing in the sand as the waves recede. The exquisite taste of low-country cuisine, goosebumps on my arms from the 2:00 AM “chill” from old graves in downtown Charleston, the pungent sweetness of nocturnal Jasmine blooms, damp garden soil clinging to my fingers, the boisterous cacophony of tourists calling it a night, all the while oblivious to the quiet splendor of a city that is just now awaking for my exploration.
My senses take it all in and those moments become my drive for art, writing, and all the creative inspirations that flow within me. Come, let’s roam, wander and meander through this rich and complex world.
