It's a Privilege'Every single day I live life. It is living today. It's not about 'someday I'll do this'... that may never come. You do it now.'
Prelude to Perfection'I always say that perfection is something you aim for. You mustn't ever get there. If you did, then it suddenly becomes a bit boring.' - Bill Selway Robson
Everyday Miracles'I never knew that this kind of a life existed. Here every single day is a miracle. Every single day there is something to be grateful for.' - Tracey
Painter and the Portal"If you don't take reality for granted, at all, any of the time, then whatever is in front of you is absolutely miraculous, particularly natural beauty. The richness of reality is this constant feeding frenzy for my brain. So I'm like a kid in a sweet shop the whole time. Everything you see, all the time, could be used in a painting or in a story or in a song." - Peter van Straten
Island Of PlentyEva and her family live an isolated life on the remote island of Stóra Dímun, in the middle of the North Atlantic Sea. While they are geographically isolated, they never feel lonely.
Reflection"I lost about 70% of my eyesight in my right eye. I started understanding more about what it is to see - you are seeing with your eyes, but how you perceive things is actually what has any meaning." - Brandur Patturson
Happy to BeWe spent an afternoon with Warren capturing how he sees the world. Thank you Warren and Elizabeth for sharing your home and wisdom with us.
A Good LifeFor young people today, there is a lot of pressure to conform - worrying about how they look, what they wear... It is important that we learn to focus on the the REAL beauty of a person - the beauty that goes far beyond the physical appearance - the inner beauty. 'It is not so important to be beautiful. It is important that you are smiling and have a good life.' - Borgny Patursson
A Coming Home"These animals are so incredible and so entertaining that they make our most extraordinary science fiction seem dull in comparison." - Craig Foster.
A Strange Beauty'Everything has a strange beauty to it, if you have the right way of looking.' - Simon
Capturing Magic'There are only a few people who ever get to experience what animals do in their private lives. We only ever get to see glimpses of it.' - Steve Benjamin
FreedomDeep down, inside our bodies, lives the soul. No one has ever seen it, but we all know it's there. There is a 'soul bird' who lives inside us all. Tróndur Patursson is a Faroese artist, who has become famous for his trademark stained glass birds. For him, his job as an artist is to capture the soul of those beings represented in his work. And he believes that just like the bird is free, so we must allow our soul to be free.
A Sense of Humour"Advice to younger people? Keep your sense of humour. It's important. If it wasn't for my sense of humour, I'd have no sense at all." - Paul Dixon
Inside Your Heart"Anything you need to achieve in life is determined by what you feel inside your heart. There is no external force that can effect your internal, without your permission" - Vuyo Katsha
Sew Many Days"That you can pin things down and stitch things in. If it's emotions or thoughts, you've made something out of something that was sitting inside you or worrying you." - Gina Niederhumer
Do What You Love"Do what you love. Do it until it feels done, with no expectations about outcome. I think if you see anyone who is happy, go and ask them and they'll tell you they are doing what they love." - Dorien Du Toit
Finding Meaning"The light makes no sense without the dark. It needs the dark to have strength."
Fascinated by Nature"I'm dying for everybody to see what I see, because it is so wonderful. The world that I dream of is the one that we've got, because I think it is absolutely incredible." - Vicki Thomas
Behind the Mask"Nature inspires me to let go. There is no pretending. No masks. I can just be the best version of me." - Gershan
Learning to Love‘‘We have to learn to love ourselves. We have to learn to be really good to ourselves. We need a revolution. And the revolution needs to start from our own self worth’’ - Sam Althaus
Celebrating Life'‘Death is a part of life. But it's how we live that is more important.’'
Rhythms of Nature"You can find rhythm everywhere. Pulse and cycles and nature and moonphases. It has a rhythm." - Ronan Skillen

Paradise Island"Always look to the bright side of things, and never let little things get you down. Just think of what lumps of gold you've got in your hands that you can't see."- Gary Stevens
