It’s good to take time, to stop, to reflect. Sometimes life is so busy we forget to be thankful, and grateful for the people who enrich our lives. Sometimes it’s good to stand still. How are you planning to thank the special ones in your life this holiday season? #beingpresentinthemoment #quotes #quotestoliveby✨ #johnfkennedy #standingstill #beingstill #goodfriends #itsawonderfullife❤️ #instagood #instalike #instaquotesgram #love #lovemywork
Never have I thought so much, never have I realised my own existence so much, been so much alive, been so much myself... as in those journeys which I have made alone and afoot. Walking has something in it which animates and heightens my ideas: I can scarcely think when I stay in one place; my body must be set a-going if my mind is to work. The sight of the country, the succession of beautiful scenes... releases my soul, gives me greater courage of thought, throws me as it were into the midst of the immensity of the objects of Nature... my heart, surveying one object after another, unites itself, identifies itself with those in sympathy with it, surrounds itself with delightful images, intoxicates itself with emotions the most exquisite. - Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Confessions

Amen. Throwback to when I was out breaking trail on a mountain pass, delightfully called "Rabbit's Ears", just 20 minutes' drive from where I live in Steamboat Springs. I had gotten back to town just several hours before, after having been away for almost a month. Oh, the delicious solitude, having the snow laden boughs of evergreens all to yourself! We had to break trail. Am presently in California, having arrived here last night, after being in Washington DC for work the past couple of days. I was told by a gf this morning that we will be hiking Crater Lake in Oregon this Friday. Woot! What are you up to this weekend?

"Fairy tales are more than true: not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten. - Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Word. When I set out to write "Survivors: Breaking the Silence on Child Sexual Abuse", my hope and that of the survivors who contributed to the book is that other adult survivors and their loved ones will find the book useful in fighting their inner demons as they wrestle with the issue of incest and/or abuse and the damage it has inflicted on relationships. The book was published in November 2017 by Marshall Cavendish with a chapter written by @danielfungss. To our surprise, it sold out and is now in its second print run. As I plan book readings for 2019, please DM me if you have any suggestions and would like to bring it to your respective cities. I did 12 book readings in 11 cities in the past year.

"Snow flurries began to fall and they swirled around people's legs like house cats. It was magical, this snow globe world." - Sarah Addison Allen, The Sugar Queen. 'Tis winter magic, how true! It has been a whirlwind 3.5 weeks and it is now time to return to my beloved Steamboat Springs. I am grateful for having had the opportunity to reconnect with old friends, those whom I was able to meet along the way. London, Paris and Singapore: how lovely to see these cities again through the perspective of time! I'm excited to start skiing again once am back in Colorado. Are you excited about the outdoors this time of year?

IG fam! So this happened last night Wednesday, 28 November 2018 at 10.50pm Singapore time on Channel News Asia's Singapore Tonight show. Am grateful for the opportunity to have spoken about my work on child sexual abuse, as well as my upcoming expedition to the North Pole in April 2019 to raise awareness on this matter. Huge thanks to @zubnaz, @jeanroca and @gusti_seruni for working hard behind the scenes and being such amazing cheerleaders! Zub: thanks a ton for all that prep work that you did with me, you are such a star. @t_5l5_p thank you for making this happen! Thank you too to all of you rooting for me from afar: you know who you are. Let's all do our bit to prevent child sexual abuse!

"There are no faster or firmer friendships than those formed between people who love the same books." - Irving Stone, Clarence Darrow for the Defense

Amen. Around this time last year, my book "Survivors: Breaking the Silence on Child Sexual Abuse" which I co-wrote with @danielfungss was published by Marshall Cavendish. Throwback to the book launch hosted by the amazing folk at @Twitter which was well attended by so many friends including @fadhlina and @t_5l5_p , with folk like @jeanroca and @zubnaz being such a force of support behind the scenes. Thank you Twitter's @philipchua for believing in this project. Fast forward one year and I've had 12 book readings including at Yale University in New Haven, Yale-NUS College in Singapore and NYU Steinhardt in NYC. It befuddles my mind still that the first print run sold out and that we are now in the second print run. Am happy to be here in Singapore, catching up with friends and family, and to reflect on the past year.

"The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green earth, dwelling deeply in the present moment and feeling truly alive." - Thich Nhat Hanh

Amen. I'm still teaching myself to be more present instead of rushing on to the next thing. One of my favorite things is sitting down by the fire with a cup of green tea and reading. Or to do an intense workout and be truly present in my body, the way my feet feel as they touch the ground, my muscles as they carry weights or pull at something. This morning, I was marveling at the lushness of the jungle green, made even more so by the rain falling down, pearly drops on the leaves, lulling all those who would care to listen. This picture is a throwback to my time in London recently, at Hampstead Heath, taken by the very talented @claudialeisinger.

"Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart." - Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore

How true. Throwback to when a group of us went trekking up to a glacier beyond the well-trodden Triund in India. How lovely to catch up with friends at the summit. But memories can tear you apart: watching my friend break down last week at the thought of not seeing his children again for some time. I was in London for a conference, and while there, I did my bit to help my friend claim asylum from the Taliban. This is serious business and he had been injured in a vehicle explosion set up by the Taliban in 2012. It killed 22 people and injured 67. But I was disappointed with several of my peers who doubted his claim of death threats by the Taliban, and assumed that life would be easier for him in the UK. It frankly isn't: he will not be allowed to work until he receives refugee status, if he gets it at all but it appears he has a strong case. I helped fill up the form to apply for long-term housing and financial assistance while he waits for the outcome of his claim. If approved, my friend will get a paltry £36 a week (US$46) and will have to live in shared accommodation with at least 3 other men. After receiving refugee status, he is not allowed to visit his home country for 5 years, so it will be some time before he sees his family again. Please let us not harbour prejudices against those seeking refuge from harm. They could have been you or I.

"Laugh, even when you feel too sick or too worn out or tired. 
Smile, even when you're trying not to cry and the tears are blurring your vision. 
Sing, even when people stare at you and tell you your voice is crappy. 
Trust, even when your heart begs you not to. 
Twirl, even when your mind makes no sense of what you see. 
Frolick, even when you are made fun of. Kiss, even when others are watching. Sleep, even when you're afraid of what the dreams might bring. 
Run, even when it feels like you can't run any more.
And, always, remember, even when the memories pinch your heart. Because the pain of all your experience is what makes you the person you are now. And without your experience - you are an empty page, a blank notebook, a missing lyric. What makes you brave is your willingness to live through your terrible life and hold your head up high the next day. So don't live life in fear. Because you are stronger now, after all the crap has happened, than you ever were back before it started." - Alysha Speer

Yes. I am a little tired from a whirlwind last several days but am grateful for having been given the opportunity to represent the Global Diplomacy Lab at the Paris Peace Forum. It was opened by French President Macron on Sunday, in the presence of Russian President Putin, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. Naive me, I think I've heard it all, but then I listened to the stories of those involved in trauma-related work and working on healing communities in Nairobi and Mombasa in Kenya, and my heart feels such gratitude. Thank you Angi and Kaltuma for the work that you do, especially as women in an environment that is not always easy. As always, I feel grateful for the ever talented @elsamariedsilva in making teamwork so smooth. The picture above is our attempt at finding a reception last night which seemed to have mysteriously moved without anyone's knowledge! But we of course entertained ourselves with a lovely dinner. What are you grateful for? Photo credit: @elsamariedsilva #projectbeauty #travel #traveling #ParisPeaceForum #Paris #ig_shutterbugs #photographer #pic #pictures #photoart #photography #snapshot

"The yellow glistens.
It glistens with various yellows,
Citrons, oranges and greens
Flowering over the skin." - Wallace Stevens

My IG fam! I got to London yesterday and it was lovely reconnecting with old friends from university days today over hot cups of chocolate and steaming tea. I did a photo shoot with the remarkably talented @claudialeisinger this afternoon at Hampstead Heath. She is truly one of the portraits photographers whom I have worked with who makes you feel so comfortable in outdoor shoots. Tired as I was, she made me run all over the heath in an attempt to get as many good "active" shots of my running. Can't wait to share them with you! Am off to Paris tonight for the @parispeaceforum, an initiative of French President Macron. Am excited to meet up with @elsamariedsilva and represent the Global Diplomacy Lab at this august gathering. What are you up to this weekend?

"Winter is coming." - George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones 
Amen. Am excited about the flurry of snow over Steamboat Springs the past several days. I ventured out for a short walk yesterday, and it was just delightful to hear the crunch of snow under my boots again and to breathe in the crisp, cold air. Is it snowing where you are? Are you excited as I am about winter?

"I was drinking in the surroundings: air so crisp you could snap it with your fingers and greens in every lush shade imaginable offset by autumnal flashes of red and yellow. - Wendy Delsol, Stork

Yes. Throwback to when I was on the beautiful Yale campus over the weekend. I don't think I've ever witnessed such colours before, despite my having lived 10 years in Europe. My heart is full this morning and I feel incredibly grateful for being where I am today. Looking forward to a quiet, introspective day today after a whirlwind of a week last week.

"Be thankful for everything that happens in your life; it’s all an experience." - Roy T. Bennett

Amen. So being a true blue Star Wars fan, I dressed up as Queen Amidala yesterday to go trick and treating, my first time ever. I had long nursed this goal, wanting to dress up as this character at a work dinner and dance back in 2005, but I was summoned to Moscow for a business trip at the last minute. I was sad about that white face paint that had to go to waste! I had a ball last night. It warms my heart how safe it is here for children to wander about at night to get treats. It is how as it should be, but please do not take it for granted. Scroll to the left to see my companion Darth Vader, and us being photo bombed by a cheeky lil' Ewok! What did you do yesterday for Halloween?

"Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life." - Mark Twain

Amen. Got back from Armenia on Sunday afternoon: landed at JFK and took a train straight up to New Haven to speak at Yale University. I was hosted by the lovely @elsamariedsilva who never ceases to amaze me with her talent. We are holding her book "Development as Dignity" published by Aspen this year to which she had contributed a chapter. Elsa and I did a Facebook live session yesterday (now up on my Facebook page), followed by a book reading at Horchow Hall. Heading back to my beloved Steamboat Springs now. Next up: the Paris Peace Forum!

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." - Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches

Speaking at the United World College (UWC) in Dilijan, Armenia this evening on my book "Survivors: Breaking the Silence on Child Sexual Abuse". The student next to me, Daniel, read out excerpts from "Michael's", a survivor's chapter. It was an intense session, with the students asking questions ranging from how to support someone who has disclosed having been abused as a child, the healing journey, and how to join a not-for-profit and work on human rights. It was a privilege speaking to these students. Huge thank you to the International Office of the UWC based in London, and teacher Jaime Nieman, for making this happen!
