Mother Earth, Our Home

We live on a beautiful and magical planet, where everything from the smallest flower to the biggest thunderstorm live and co-exist harmoniously. Too many times we can get caught up in the fast-pace world that we live in and forget to look up, look around, and appreciate the amazing planet we call home. All too often is the very place

Thailand From Under the Sea

A moment of suspension in the air, flying for a second, then a huge splash and a rainbow of colors explode before me.

The Red Sunset of Wadi Rum, Jordan

I am sitting on the untouched red sand dunes as the sun sets and the wind blows gently. A red and white Bedouin scarf is wrapped loosely around my head. Little plants sprout out of the desert sand, showing how there can be life in a desolate land, and how there can be hope in a hopeless situation. Hundreds of

A Dream of Change – A Poetic Longing For A Better World

I can remember scribbling down these words after the first time I saw a refugee camp in 2016 in Jordan with my own eyes and made friends with people from Syria. I heard the real stories of lives affected by war and their dreams for the future. Little did I know that for the next 2 years I would be
