I make love to life…

I have no regrets…

All that will be left of me is my passion… All that will be remembered is my dance…

All that will matter is that I loved… All those things will travel on…

They will gallop on dusty roads of eternity into the hearts of those, who are brave enough to let go of fear, who will strip their souls raw and breathe passion into their veins…

Here’s some of the photographs that were taken of me in the past months…

in Papua New Guinea, USA, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia… just to name a few …

Where I was the first white woman to have danced topless with tribes at Madang Festival in Papua New Guinea

It was an honor to be there that day and dance with other half-naked women, who were rubbing off paint onto my body with their bodies and giving me tribal jewellery as gifts. Locals were thanking me for becoming part of their culture. People in Papua New Guinea are incredible! Even though local press put a very negative spin on my actions… the lens tells the truth of what happened that day.

This moment was captured by the most fearless and passionate photographer I know —  Dmitriy Komarov of www.sweet-studio.com.au

We also got to live in a remote village with local tribe with no electricity or running water and got to contribute our money and time directly to locals and their community, instead of some wealthy Chinese resort owner.

Inside A Soft Cocoon Of Infinite Silence

“If you want to become whole, let yourself be partial. If you want to become straight, let yourself be crooked. If you want to become full, let yourself be empty. If you want to be reborn, let yourself die. If you want to be given everything, give everything up.” ~ Tao Te Ching

Steve – I had a premonition about you before you came here. I was actually very exited to meet you and expecting someone who people call “chica loca” or someone very upbeat and passionate .. but not what I saw. You were in some sort of “soft cocoon” when I picked you up. You were silent and did not talk much at all. And when I asked you what you need, you replied you “needed nothing” and I said yes, when you need nothing, you realize you have everything…

Love or Fear ? — An Ode To Nomads

You know, I have really gave the “normal” life a try. But you know how sometimes you wear a dress, that is gorgeous, but it just doesn’t fit you best — that is the case here. It just didn’t fit.

I can try to pretend that it does, but you can only fool yourself that your dress fits perfectly only for a while, then you have to go to the tailor. Tailor does a great job, but something still doesn’t feel right, so tailor says “Sorry, there’s nothing more we can do to that dress, you just have to get a new one”. And so you do, but the story repeats itself. That’s what happened in my life…
