The Road Less Travelled

Photo taken by contributor Leya, a single mother working in the mental health field. She has a child with multiple barriers, including severe anxiety, and grew up in a highly anxious household with a family that experienced significant historical trauma. Leya believes that the key to our collective functioning is finding ways to calm our overactive minds, and for her that is walks in nature, photography, poetry, painting, dance and yoga. Cooking and eating delicious food is also a passion of hers. She primarily deals with nature and historic sites for her subject matter, and only sites that grab her and convey a story or emotion or sheer beauty. She challenges herself to capture those moments and convey the same sensation to her audience, and hopefully heighten that experience through artistic expression.

About this photo: “The Eastern Shore of Nova Scotia, “the road less travelled” is a beautiful drive along the Atlantic Ocean. Takes much longer than the freeway, but the rugged and lyrical beauty makes it worth the time.
