The Artist’s Diary

Sometimes we meet people in life and feel an instant soul recognition. Rachel Clift is one of those divinely orchestrated connections, and I wrote a poem for her after our road trip to the mountains in North Carolina.

In 2014, I set out to live a life crafted with intention and depth. I bought my first VW and started taking solo road trips to discover pieces of myself that I knew were buried in adventure.

One of my dearest friends, Rachel Clift, wrote this poem during the reception at a wedding she recently attending after hearing “til death” knowing twin flame souls are beyond this lifetime.

Inspired by the emotional depth of poetry, I decided to give my creative skills an attempt at writing my own. Dated July 2019, I mediated on self-awareness and wrote my first poem.
