hit play, keep moving your feet. then hit play again. dance.
trust has been the driving force for the past month. admitting that no one knows the answers, my answers. it can be and has been painful to listen to myself because sometimes it’s easier to listen to what others want or expect. sure, why not. if it doesn’t work it’s their fault not mine. it’s whole heart rewarding - though, when a big or small action rooted in trust creates a vibration in my chest. the echo lingers yes, yes you listened. thank you. | via nevver: artsy.net

worn wear – a film about the stories we wear
presented by patagonia
directed by keith, lauren, chris, and dan malloy
worn wear is an exploration of quality – in the things we own and the lives we live. this short film takes you to an off-the-grid surf camp in baja, mexico; a family’s maple syrup harvest in contoocook, new hampshire; an organic farm in ojai, california; and into the lives of a champion skier, a national geographic photographer, and a legendary alpinist. It also features exclusive interviews with patagonia founder yvon chouinard. - wornwear [emphasis mine]

the knowing. it’s there. Home.
drawing has taught me the more you don’t know in your mind what you’re going to do, the more it comes out in your hand. you learn from looking, and look from making, and make from looking, and it’s all part of this ongoing process.
if you’re going to realize your intentions, what you stop doing is just as important as what you start and continue to do. that is where ‘quitting’ crosses over into enlightenment. stopping = the white space. stopping = room to run free and create from the deepest place of being without restraint and compromise. stopping = more time for what matters most. you know how to go, go go. stopping, however, is the stuff of smiley zen masters with all the time in the world
stopping what’s distracting, draining, or aggravating does’t require any heavy lifting or extra stamina - just love and self-respect.
