We lost our way
We stumbled along the streets of clay
Looking up
We lost the sunshine in those clouds
Of war, and pain
The endless drones of suffering

And after all these years
Past the ages, losses and tears
Our hearts cry out
Longing for Infinity
We’ve never known

A day we’ve never known
Like a whisper in our soul
A seed we’ve never sown
Like stars beyond the moon

We’ve never known

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
