I am passionate about STORY. Story connects everything I do in my life. .
When I choose to do a film, I believe that its story can touch, incite, excite, or inspire a viewer. When I write stories or even these posts, it is because there is a part of MY story I feel compelled to share or my story is missing an answer that I long to discover. When I make choices about what I'll do, or where I'll go, or who I'll do it with, in my heart I'm authoring my own story, shaping it to fit my dreams and longings.
And even when I workout, when I am needing that extra push for that extra mile, or that extra rep, or that extra stretch, or when I'm bored running up and down the stairs to my kid's rooms in my rented home in American suburbia, I use story to motivate or inspire myself.
Story transforms me from a mom, taking advantage of nap time, to a young girl from a rural, valley tribe who's father is dying in a dark hut, and if she can't reach the nearest city, mountains and valleys away, on time, he won't make it. As my imagination takes over, I get swept up in the story and find that before I know it, I'm sweating buckets and my kids are awake.
PS - turn the sound on the vid for the story 😉😉
