SUNSHINE & PEACE OF MIND

(SUNSHINE & PEACE OF MIND) This is such a solid quote that resonates with me at this very second. There's so many moments along ones journey where we want to pull the plug and feel the act of defeat is winning.

New Changes In The Air

Got a chance to do some exploring this morning / afternoon in a sweet spot called Paia, Hawaii.
