So much colour on Tortola despite all the destruction. Soon, all the greenery returns; it will cover the metal roofs blown off people houses; it will grow stronger and wilder; it will learn and create new patterns and pathways - for itself and for us. I’ve met the next team heading out tomorrow. So much to say, although no words or images will be ever enough. It’s the breathing in of the salty air; it’s the feeling of the rain and wind on the cheeks; it’s the strength of the hug you give and receive from the people you meet; it’s the warm ‘good day’ you hear from each and every person you meet (...). Today I’ve been working on some write ups from my sessions; planning more travels; finding out how; finding out when. Photo taken right beside Tortola’s artistic ambassador Joseph Hodge’s beach Home/studio/open house. Ten square meters. Maybe less. One of the warmest welcomes we’ve received whilst strolling along the pier #traumarecovery #bvistrong #arttherapy #artpsychotherapy #bvi #tortola #irmahurricane #hurricaneirma #creativerecovery #recoverythroughart #caribbean #caribbeanarchitecture #caribbeanartist #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #naturecomesback #rebuildinglives #ecotherapy #mindfulpractice #mindfulness #mindfullifestyle #naturaldisaster #disasterrelief

West End, leaving Sopers Hole area heading towards the bridge. A very different view but things are getting cleaned up at a great pace considering Novembers weather. #novemberrain #rainyseason #bvistrong #bvi #tortola #1lovevirginislands #1lovevi #onebvi #sopershole

Rainbow over Road Town, after a storm on the island of Tortola, in the British Virgin Islands. Hopefully a positive sign for this future of this beautiful but battered place. Hope the people here get the help that they need in order to be able to rebuild.

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind
.
The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart | 👁️ | IRMA
.
And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
.So darkness I became.
.
I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating,
you were in the darkness too
.So I stayed in the darkness with you. . . . —

Mexico sabbatical flushed w anger. always in this Twilight.
I’m in the shadows. To forgive is not to forget. If possible to forget, will this End regret?

Huge thanks for the folks at this weekends amazingly successful Turn the Tide BVI/USVI fundraising event for letting us set up shop to sell our #bvistrong tees for @767visar this weekend. Also, huge thanks and shout out to my sailing/writing sister and partner in crime Tasha from @turftosurf for flying out to help (and have fun with) me... she is the yin to my yang and it was so fun selling shirts, meeting new friends and getting into trouble in the city with her! If you want to sport some BVI strong gear, head to www.remembertheadventure.com/BVI strong - all proceeds go to VISAR!

Couldn't have been possible without an A+++ team. Thanks Eno and Blake. #BarnesPR is here supporting our islands rebuild. You can view the Facebook Live replay on Premier Smith's page. #BVIStrong #WearestrongerTOGETHER #PRGirl #letmedowhatido #BVI #HBCUPride

Joy is believing The Best Is Yet To Come even when you're going through your worst! Sneek Peak Vlog! My primary assignment during this event was to capture the philanthropic efforts of the Fearless Foundation through the work of @ariansimone of @fearlessmag !  This Foundation serves to provide support to homeless women across the country! As a resident of the Brirish Virgin Islands, Kristin faced the worst of circumstances when her home and all or her merchandise inventory from her line @trefledesigns was washed away during Hurricane Irma! She chose joy and God is showing out in her life! Tune in for the 1st Friday spotlight of December for the full story!  If you choose joy today can I get an amen!!!!! #simplypassionatelife #trèfle #bvibrand #bvistrong #womenempowerment #networkmarketing #fearlessreloaded #caribbeanlove #strength #unity #love #instalove

A rainy day did not prevent HRH the Prince of Wales from paying a visit to the kids at YEP in East End to hear about their hurricane recovery experiences. #bvistrong #royalfamily #royalvisit #princeofwales #yepstrong #bvi #hurricaneirma

The last few days have been a real showing of what the hurricanes have done here in the islands. Homes are gone, docks are gone, boats are destroyed, etc. People still live in boarded up houses without a roof or walls. There is a curfew in effect on Tortola because of the looting that ensued. Out of 67 boats a smaller charter company had before the storms, only 6 remain operational (and some of those not so pretty). Other fleets of charter yachts were demolished. There are boats and debris on every beach and bank. It looks like Road Town was bombed. Foxy's on JVD is partially operational (if the generator is on), but Foxy is still playing his guitar and singing and smiling. Next stop Anguilla to deliver bucket water filter systems to the schools and kids because their water is contaminated and they are relying on the purchase of bottled water (at almost $5 each! And what to do with all that plastic pollution!??!)
We are very happy to continue to bring clean water to so many people who need it. Thank you to all the contacts down here distributing to those in need, and thank you to @yachtaidglobal for helping us be able to do this. #onelove

8 weeks after the storm, we can see so much progress has been made by the valiant recovery efforts and everyone who has stepped up to help make BVI great again. But there is still extreme need. We were very excited to see Prince Charles, tour the BVI and hope to see the U.K. aid in the recovery efforts after seeing the desperate need for their resources.

It was so cool to experience today! We met Prince Charles, but also got to meet with some locals who had lost everything - specifically their roof - to Irma. We are working with a team who is fundraising for repairing these family's homes. The stories are shocking and the people are strong.
