“At such times, I can always steady my life once more by returning to my soul. I ask it, “And what is it that you want, dear one?”

“The answer is always the same: “More wonder, please.”

“As long as I’m still moving in that direction—toward wonder–then I know I will always be fine in my soul, which is where it counts. And since creativity is still the most effective way for me to access wonder, I choose it.”

― Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear


A Modern Mystic’s Journey to the Cradle of Monotheism is a photographic exploration of three countries, Turkey, Greece, and Italy. My hope is to remain open to creativity and  bridge history with a modern mystic’s understanding of how my Creator interacts with us in in our world.

I am traveling light with just my camera and one lens and a pilgrim’s heart.

For my Indiegogo Patrons and Patreon Patrons

For My Parish Family

For my parish family, I have also created a space for you to follow along (pending wifi access). Log in details can be found on the Holy Redeemer List service.

Creativity and insight almost always involve an experience of acute pattern recognition: the eureka moment in which we perceive the interconnection between disparate concepts or ideas to reveal something new. –  Jason Silva
