Welcome Back To LOCHNATION

I remember when I first started the first version of this blog 5 years ago, my world as i had known it had changed. I was trying to find my old self in a new world and failed. However, in failling, I found something awesome instead; I found passion and purpose. I was inspired by the words of encouragement & comfort written by a mother to a daughter who felt lost – She said, “ Look inside yourself and find what’s holding you back, you can create whole worlds girl” (Ntozake Shange, Sassafrass, Cypress & Indigo).
I remember exactly where I was when I read those words for the first time. I especially recall what I thought my life would have in store for me. I’ve never been so glad to be wrong! Ntozake’s words will remain with me forever , reminding me how i started discovering & believing in myself.
Your girl can create whole worlds plz. It’s me, im your girl. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how LOCHNATION was born. A world, my world, where I am King.  A place where I  celebrate and share my  love of life, art and culture and of the pursuit of happiness. I needed & wanted a space to document how I can create and celebrate myself (again) and find special ways to celebrate others while I’m at it.
This blog is inspired by my journey and fight from darkness; my pure and raw desire to design life, the pride in showcasing my work & the art that surrounds me and, most importantly, the audacity to explore, find and be my true authentic self. Here you will expect to see all the things I truly enjoy about being able to be alive ; from my work in the arts, my travels, my health and wellness journey and all the fun things I’ve always been too scared to try. 
I have reconnected with all the “lil’ accents that make me a King” and  I’m glad to be brave enough to restart my blogging journey again. Im shit scared because right now, today as I write this I really care what you think, I really want you to like what I have to share and I really want you to like me. But my goal is that somewhere along the journey, that will change, and I won’t give a fuck.
I DO hope  though, that every time you visit LOCHNATION you leave with some bit of enlightenment, entertainment, education or encouragement.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
I hope you have YOUR year
