Morning Passages began as a way for me to chronicle inspiration I’d collect: Instead of clogging up my hard drive, I decided to put it on an open forum where it could be organized and shared. I began noticing themes in each post, which in turn crafted little tell-tales. Soon enough, I was receiving kind words of admiration from friends and strangers across the world, and as my blog seemed to be influencing and inspiring others, I decided to spend more time on it as a project. I view Morning Passages as my own personal magazine and a look into my subconscious. I am drawn to creations that get under my skin, raise questions and move me toward both the light and the dark: I’m more interested in stories and concepts than that of beauty or glamour. As our society thrives off routine, fixed ideals and stifles youthful curiosity, I thought it selfish of me to keep so many treasures to myself! Here you will find visual candy that focuses on fashion, style, design, photography, visual art, music, film, subcultures and interiors.
