Asking personal questions is the best way of understanding the complexity of life around us. I’ve learned the value of being curious and asking questions. I’ve discovered the power of self-reflection, of self-awareness, of respect and the power of love. I’ve found the spiritual significance of some of the most meaningful journeys of my life – and some of the most enriching adventures of my life – were the moments of admitting that I’d have liked to do more, but hadn’t been given the space, the time, the effort.

Most of all, I’ve learned the value of art. While many people value art, it’s not something many people ever understand. But it is in art that we can discover truths, find artistic patterns and images that bring to life and resonate with our own experiences. It is in art that we get to see our own self-doubt mirrored.
