What began as a visual catalogue of eastward travel from Hawaii, Los Angeles, Black Rock City, and New York City transformed into a capture and praise of vivid, trancending experiences with nature, people and dreams. I handed the camera off to close friends to spread the storytelling across multiple perspectives, allowing for a depth in this film that I couldn't imagine alone. This abstract story is assisted by the reciting of a very special section of Ram Dass's masterpiece of coming to awareness, "Be Here Now" and the upfront, jarring tones of the Tibetian Singing Bowl provided by Anne Spinner.

I welcome you to envelope yourself in this 1-year project and I am excited to share it with everyone involved.
