“We are one”
“If you can’t see God in all you can’t see god at all”

I recently became very aware, that I am in fact….. ‘a dream chaser’.
In my quest to find happiness, contentment, find my place in the world, I realised I have in fact spent most of my life in a state of chasing such feelings.

So what’s contributing to this?
Whilst being confined during the isolation period… My thoughts wander to this prison of my mind. Which now extends to the bricks of my home.
