Although it is not an easy time here in Haiti, in the aftermath of Hurricane Mathew, I wanted to share a little bit of the beauty that is always present...the captivating beauty of Haiti.

From the busy streets of the city, to the tranquility of the countryside, I am continually amazed by the inexplicable beauty of Haiti. A land a lens cannot fully capture. A country that uses all the senses to even grasp a portion of understanding. To explore the land and the rich culture is an endless journey full of new discoveries. The language, like music, matches the vibrancy of the culture. Haiti is a country easy to fall in love with, a country that continually captures my heart.
