James Trevelyan

What would constitute a perfect day for you?

Framed by a sound sleeps, it includes a relaxed evening with family or friends. I am blessed because most days I am so thankful I can do something to help others. Maybe it’s teaching, maybe photographing flowers like this: https://adobe.ly/388CJ8r and distributing the image to friends and family. Maybe it will bring another step to enable affordable access for anyone wanting a sound and healthy night’s sleep in a hot climates with a sustainable cooling solution that won’t heat the local or global climate. Or a step towards another of my dreams: affordable 24/7 access to safe drinking water for everyone.
