Frolicking in the Forest

Thank you for being here...
I come bearing some rather exciting news. Coming in February *you* will have the opportunity to pre-order your very own copy of my documentary film, "Where There Once Was Water". Wheeee Haw! After spending some months on this project, I have come to realize that in order make this film a reality, I'm going to need help. In mid-February be on the look out for a super rad Kickstarter campaign and the official release of my first teaser trailer for the film. Holy smokes, I cannot wait to show you what I've been up to! Much Love, y'all.

"In an age when man has forgotten his origins and is blind even to his most essential needs for survival, water along with other resources has become the victim of his indifference." - Rachel Carson

I just returned from a road trip up to the northernmost tip of California. I soaked up the rain in those giant redwoods, and I came home saturated and refreshed - grateful for the natural wonders of our world. Along the way I filmed the devastatingly charred remains of the town of Cobb, I followed the Eel River as it wound it's way down the northern reaches of highway 101, and I filmed time-lapses of clouds flirting with the forest. I visited Shasta Lake - one of our state's largest, and an area of much dam dispute of late, and I stared in amazement at the reservoir's gargantuan bathtub rings.

The theme of cooperation, and little changes making big differences, keeps coming up. As artist & activist Sarah Bellum said to me recently in an interview, "We're all on this abundant garden planet together, and it's a lot easier if we work together". I had the opportunity to interview this inspiring and kind-spirited "Barefoot Trash Fairy" about her zero-waste lifestyle, the health of our oceans, and her work with the Surfrider Foundation. She's about to head out on a zero-waste bike tour up the coast of California - so, as you may have guessed, Sarah and I realized, pretty much immediately, that we were soul-sisters. Beautiful connections continue to happen through this project - I am grateful, and my heart is full.

I've been reviewing images and footage in preparation for the official project launch in February, and there's so much to share already! I am thrilled for the opportunity to give you a sneak peek of this work through my first teaser trailer for the film - set to launch mid-February alongside my Kickstarter campaign. Once launched, you will have the ability to pre-order the film. Your support will mean the world. Thank you for being on this journey with me!

Until next time... Namaste.
