33 hours in Hong Kong for my beloved @elephantfamily. Thanks to @cosdestournel and @sothebys we raised money to preserve elephant habitat and prevent human-elephant conflict in a magical corner of the world. Even as the US administration quietly passes grotesque laws that allow for trophy hunting we will continue to fight for creatures that can not protect themselves.

Deep respect and admiration to all the high school students that walked out of class today in protest of gun violence. The kids are alright. Keep pushing and lead the way.

I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers - Pablo Neruda
Good morning baby.

Let’s you and me start a revolution of love. This one’s an inside job. It starts with me. I’ll put love into everything I do. I’ll work harder to not make decisions from fear. I’ll watch my love blossom into compassion. And in turn, compassion into healing. I’ll learn from my mistakes and find a better path. I’ll challenge myself daily to be a better human. That’s how it starts. A little manifesto. From the inside. Love into action. One small spark can turn into millions. That’s a revolution my love.

It’s true - I’m not a fan of winter but I’ll always make an exception for the Alps. Thank you @cnttravelerspain for a thoughtful conversation and a verrrry cold but super inspiring shoot in one the most beautiful places on the planet. On newsstands (in Spain). #yosoytraveler #lovenotfear
