I left Los Angeles to find new trees.
Born and raised in the Valley, I dreamed of one day living in a forest.
Tired of rocks and sand and barren views, I found a way to achieve this dream by traveling, thanks to the support of my project, Typewriter Poetry.
Typing FREE POETRY for strangers meant I had the chance to explore and live in some pretty interesting places–including an off-grid writing cabin in the remote wilderness of Sweden.
Eventually, I left the woods to see if I could work in the city until I could purchase lush green forest land of my own. This was my goal for years—to have my own land in a forest or an island.
But that all changed with the conscious conception of my daughter, Mayari.
Desert: “to abandon”
Flow The Desert is a journey of return. Return to my hometown, my city, my so-called barren desert views.
Having fallen in love with the beautiful browns of this place, I am seeking to give back, to give my all to the only thing that matters.
Flow The Desert is my love letter to the earth.
What better way to spend a life than pursuing the impossible?
My hope is to grow at least one tree, one patch of grass, one piece of fruit, one flower in the desert.
