I never thought I would feel at home in a garbage dump. But then again, I have never really felt at home, at home. And I’ve always seen beauty in the unordinary. And my heart has always yearned for something different.
I’ve read a lot of books that recommend you take heed to reoccurring situations or people you keep running in to or the omens we so often overlook. Everything comes in to your life for a reason, for a lesson. At the age of 29, I have now returned four times to Riverton, a community wrapped around the edges of the Kingston landfill. After my most recent trip, I am now taking heed to this place that the Universe continues to keep in my life. I am now realizing there is a deeper bond between this landfill and I, than just the few months of my life or a few piles of garbage. I believe this is my calling. Supporting Riverton and its audacious residents is my Personal Legend.
