A thought derived from my writing.

An exploration of primordial passions,
“We are all akin to the physical phenomenon know as lava- our metaphorical selves brighten and alight from our base, the rest of our lives we find running in the tracks of paths and depressions already left before us. The struggle is in directing ones flow in a new direction"

Long Lake

This is a trip Karolina and I went on. We rode out bikes out along the highway and about 45-60 minutes later we got here! It was quite nice.... as you can see :)




Life in Halifax

These are some photographs of my life, since september.
My kitchen

The metal shop at NSCAD, where I have made a steel shelf. Painted it black!


Here is a really cool tallship in the harbour. This is looking out the window in the port campus.


Here are some herbs, parsley and bay tree.

Life attending Nscad university



I live in an apartment that is north of the picture of building in the far left. That brownish coloured place is the Granville Campus where I will be spending most of my degree.

The red brick building is the alliance atlantic film building.

The black building one on the right is called the port campus. On the waterfront of halifax, near the seaport where cruiseships arrive, but is also close to farmers market, and the boardwalk.

Soon the farmers market should be moving next to it! I hope this happens, i will go there often.
