So, where ya going?
Becuase if you've never been anywhere
and you hope to go nowhere
our designs might just bore you.
if you're on your way,
be a journey in a career or landscape, relationship or state of mind,
we hope Of The Free keeps that journey at your fingertips and
Just a map of the world.
That's all it really is. Truly. What you make of it is what counts. I mean that in the best way possible. Maybe it inspires a journey to Norway where you'll hike mountains that look like made up lands. Or maybe Norway is home, and now you live in New York - so it's a reminder of home while you're on an urban adventure! Who knows. It's a ring which carries an individual story of travel, of global-ness, for the wearer.
It was actually designed by myself at a stage where I hadn't even left New Zealand for 3 1/2 years - rough in a land so isolated! For me, the ring was about the journey yet to come. Now sitting in a Brooklyn cafe (BRKN Roasting Co, highly recommend) I watch my fingers tap across the keys and I see my tiny world. I think of the 18 months from Japan to Canada to The States I've had. I think of home. I think of what's to come.
The journey doesn't end. Sometimes on pause, but I'm sure like me, you're thinking of the next road.
A mountain state of mind.
Every day there is a mountain you climb. Some days are about getting to the top. Some days are about knowing your closer every step, you're on your way. Sometimes the mountain is real. You're in hiking boots. And the weather counts. And sometimes the mountain is inside your mind. Getting to the top is what it takes inside your head to keep going.
Reaching new heights and goals is something we are our own masters to create and reach.
Define your own meaning of success. Get there on your own terms. Help others reach theirs.
Personally, I'm climbing towards the tangible and intangible top*.
*Top is yours.
Just keep climbing.
Eyes to the sky. - The story -
Your dreams are not coming true today.
That's the reality life sometimes spits at you.
While the world doesn't purposely conspire against you, it's not as though the starts will magically align either.
So maybe we should all get used to ordinary.
Maybe ordinarily is enough.
Or maybe ordinary will never be enough.
I want to wake up before the sun rises. And work at the things I love until only the last of the city lights are on.
I believe in myself
And I believe in the people around me.
So, dream it up.
Don't just love it. Live it.
Don't wait for tomorrow.
We are all dreamers.
But only some are
Eat, breath, love, scream, hate, sweat, bleed and believe in what you do. What you do with your time is the most valuable thing outside of your friendships and family. Skybound is for the ones who turn dreams into realities. Sometimes this is the longest journey of all. The tiny paper planes flying around my pinky keep my heart light when I'm heavy with the blues thinking my world is coming down, when a year in time feels like only one step in progression. I know I won't make the end if I don't believe.
Chin up, eyes to the sky. You go this. You are the skybound.
