I’m Conrad, a 31 year old writer from Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve been on a self care journey for almost a year now, which has really changed my outlook in a big way.

My goal in life is to connect with as many people from as many different walks of life as possible. Conrad was here. is my journey, my story, and my way of trying to connecting with others from around the world. Some of my posts have been geared towards mental health, others more towards general happenings in my life, and there is even some advice here and there. More recently, I’ve used the site as a form of creative expression. By navigating the various sections, you’re able to read some of my poetry, learn about my novel project, get access to some of my photography and even join our exclusive online community, which launched in July of 2019, called The Gentle Collective.

I hope you’ll find my posts helpful in some way. Perhaps you are able to take something from my experiences so far? If so, please let me know about it. Thank you for visiting the blog and sharing in my story: here’s to hoping we can connect very soon.
