Set. Rest. Rise.

Set, rest, rise again.

In this process it transforms, dissolves, descends - its undoing, an art in itself, Built on brushstrokes of goodbye,
The composition illuminates the fiery sky -
A bold farewell to the day.

No concern for what has passed, unencumbered by what may be. The day is settled. The sun's job for now, complete.

Emerging gently, gradually creating its display
A dynamic kaleidoscopic embrace -
Though a repetitive routine, never a repeat
Each new rising unveiling its own expressive feat.
Set, rest, rise again.

Personally, I've had enough of seeing the effects of the 'not good enough affliction'. I've had enough of seeing beautiful, lovable people completely oblivious of their worth, …

This has hands down been one of the most amazing experiences I've gotten to enjoy; being immersed daily in this stunning place with amazing people and countless new experiences and adventures. I honestly couldn't have asked for more from it (not even better functioning internet or mobile signal!)

As with any new experience, particularly for the sensitive souls like myself, it has definitely come with new learnings, the occasional challenge and some acclimatising, but ultimately these all just came together to give a wealth of thorough enjoyment.

New environments and new experiences can bring different things depending on our mindset, perspective and attitude at the time. If we're showing up to these for example with a self we…
