Today’s haiku is dedicated to Karen Walrond in celebration of her 48th birthday. Karen Walrond is someone who deeply inspires me on a daily basis. We share a lot in common.  An engineer and attorney turned photographer, Karen is a renaissance woman who serves as a highly sought after keynote speaker, author, and activist. Her book, The Beauty of DIfferent is a number 1 Amazon bestseller, her 2012 TED talk  went viral and she regularly serves on the ONE campaign as an advisor and a resident photographer. But most importantly, Karen is a mother and wife, who has found a way to integrate her work and personal lives. Like me, Karen is third-culture -she is Trinidadian and American and has traveled around the world. 

I discovered her work during my participation in the Oprah-Brene ecourse 2 years ago. I also attended her lime retreat last year which really deepened my art journalling practice. Check out her website at www.chookooloonks.com.

By sharing her Daily Haikus (#HaikuRx – Prescriptions for an inspired life) and lessons along the way (Mondays and Thursdays), she hopes to serve and inspire a tribe of wholehearted idealists like you, to “live your ideals, thrive in your calling and change the world.”
