“We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken.” Fydor Dostoevsky   Brandon Nadeau Photography For more of the inspiring people I've come across in my travels click here....

This is from a research paper I did in my final year of university in regards to perception and positive psychology. It was incredibly rewarding at the time, and I hope its at all helpful to you.... We all desire to be happy, yet we are conditioned to search for this “happiness” outside ourselves, in a never ending pursuit of material pleasures. We are conditioned to believe that by getting “the bigger house, the better job, the faster car, etc” we will fulfill the magic formula for our happiness. Unfortunately studies have shown that these things just don't correlate to lasting increases in happiness. Happiness needs to be approached as a life long “project”, which requires sustained effort, creativity, and internal motivation. But I assure you the rewards of this pursuit will far outweigh the required effort on your part. Comparatively, happier people have stronger immune systems, have higher salaries, better social networks, more resilient in the face of hardships, physically healthier, greater energy levels, and greater self-confidence and self-esteem, to name a just a few of the rewards.

— Inspiration of the Moment

"Well I walk upon the river like it's easier than land. Evil's in my pocket and your will is in my hand. Oh, your will is in my hand"

A friend of mine turned me on to the Tallest Man on Earth a little while back, and since then his been a constant companion on my mp3 player. I've been blown away by his raw, charismatic voice and lyrics that move the deepest parts of my soul. As a musician myself, I'm always on the hunt for new artists who stoke my fire, and he's done that in a big way. I find it hard not to feel inspired after listening to him, and I hope he can do the same for you.. " Love is All "  Tallest Man on Earth
"And I'll throw you in the current that I stand upon so still Love is all, from what I've heard, but my heart's learned to kill. Oh, mine has learned to kill"
