Years ago I read about Dan Eldon and his short lived but remarkable life.
I purchased books about his journals that his mother lovingly reproduced in order to inspire others about his life and the stories he was telling.
He was an artist and English photo journalist, adventurer and activist. The incredibly talented Dan left a legacy and a powerful humanitarian spirit that can be seen in the many art journals he made.
Eldon, who kept these journals from the time he was a teenager, was killed in Mogadishu, Somalia, in the summer of 1993.
He was twenty-three years old.

Wishing you all a happy new year.
