Derek Hunter

I'm Derek. I grew up in the heartland of Indiana so, naturally, my religion is basketball, and my team is the Indiana Pacers. I love urban exploring, adore the music from my heyday in the Indianapolis Children's Choir, and I am the world's biggest bookworm not to hold a library card. I'm fascinated by the art of Henry Darger, Adolf W├Âlfli, and other outsider artists. It's hard for me to sit still given my love of travel, so if you think to yourself "I know that guy!" as you walk down the street, well... it's probably me.

THE UNLIVED LIFE.


THE UNLIVED LIFE.


MY STORIES BEGIN HERE.

THE UNLIVED LIFE. Be excellent at what you do. Be the best. But don't let your vocation become your identity. You're not a wine rep. You're not a car salesman. You're not a lawyer. You're a specialist in one thing: YOU. There's an unlived life that has been beckoning you, practically begging you to live it. I'm right and you know it. This unlived life screamed at me everyday, and I decided I couldn't take it anymore. I'm going to live it. I'm going to live my unlived life, and you must live it, too. I'll write about my journey here. Let's go for a ride.

This won't be easy, but it will be worth it.
The photos below will frequently rotate, and clicking on each one will give you a very personal, intimate snapshot of my life. I'm doing this for two reasons: to inspire you to do the same thing, and for you to hold me accountable to continue to live the life I've imagined. I took these little moments for granted for over 30 years. These are the moments I've been waiting for. We have one chance to swing. This is it. You have two choices in this life: Regret or Choose Yourself.
