Cliché incoming: I can remember still remember it like it was yesterday…
With Yes, We’re Open completing its screening run at the 2012 Hawai’i International Film Festival I’m flooded with emotions that have arrived from the joyful realization that everything I’ve been doing has helped me move forward as an artist.
I learned an important thing. That is, to give yourself permission to talk out loud about what you want to do, despite how improbable it seems. “Enchant the cosmos” as it were. With so many things I’ve put out in the Universe in my earlier youth coming to a full circle, I can’t help but remind myself to continue dreaming.
Dreaming, saying, and doing.
By no means has this journey been a solo one. I’ve had a lot of help along the way- most have come in positive light, and others, not so much. Regardless, I’ve kept my philosophies held out and in constant use: Hakuna Matata and, Onward and Upward!
Special thanks to Jesse for posting that photo and kind words. And to everyone who continues to support me (and hey, even the ones that prefer I don’t continue with this career choice), thank you.
