I've been mindful thus far, and it feels right & good to be living life by design. I start each week by scheduling my priorities. They come in the form of mountaintops, conversations, and time spent with my feet in the sand. The film is growing, maturing, and inspiring me, every day. I remain immensely grateful for your support, your friendship, and your company on this wild ride. Onward!
And now for the Drumroll... the news I've been busting at the seams to share... the best upgrade this film could possibly receive... Ladies & Gentlemen... we have an EDITOR!!!
In 2010 I pedaled a bicycle across the United States of America to raise money for WaterAid International. (which was beyond awesome, by the way - best bike ride EVER). My companion on that epic journey was none other than Garrett Russell, a good friend from Semester at Sea days, a badass filmmaker & editor, and a fully radical human. Today I am beyond stoked to announce that the one-and-only Garrrrrrrrrr, as we affectionately refer to him, is back in town, and he's going to edit this film like nobody's business. His expertise & story-telling skills are treasured & much needed, and the magic & excitement around here is growing every day. We are excited to continue sharing this story with you as it unfolds.... Yeeee!
In other exciting news... Please Save the Date!
for a fun "Where There Once Was Water"
Art Show & Fundraiser Party

at studio2G Architects, SLO
It was my honor to document the local Women's March Event on January 20th in San Luis Obispo. To see the full collection of images, and to download any that you'd like to keep (my gift to you), please visit the online gallery.
In January I also had the great honor of participating in a community dinner hosted by Edible SLO Magazine, featuring Florencia Ramirez, the author of "Eat Less Water". Florencia read passages from her book, alongside local dry-farmer John DeRosier, and spoke to us about the importance of food quality, dry farming, biodynamics, soil health, buying local, and knowing your farmer. 70% of the world's fresh water goes towards agriculture, so we really do have immense potential in this area to reduce our water footprint, both locally and globally.
