Episode 3b: Panama Shenanigans to Newark Airport

Panama City, Panama 2015

There's no where in the world that I'd rather be than traveling, meeting amazing people and enjoying delicious food. 

This is part 2 of my journey from Panama City to NYC. To combine them felt way too long so I opted to cut it into 2 parts. Maybe we even create more suspense that way. :)

Biggest take away, for me, throughout the entire video? The smile on my face in the first 4 seconds. That kind of joy you just can't fake.

As I watch it, I feel envious of that moment. Funny thing, to be envious of yourself, no? How does that even work?

Episode #3: Panama City to NYC (Part 1)

Panama City, 2015

I don't know that I fully could appreciate, previous to this 30 days of #dailyreflections vlogging adventure, the amount of love and labor that it takes to pull this all together.

I am already in love with the output.

I love that I'm able to reflect, document and share these amazing experiences with people from all over the world in such an open, transparent and ideally entertaining way.

It takes me anywhere from 2-4 hours a day to put a video together, from editing to YouTube to this here blog. I've been saying forever that I want this to be my life. I keep repeating over and over "artist and teacher".

As of right now, I'm living the dream. I'm in Montreal, Canada with gorgeous weather and the relaxation and joy that comes from creating these mini stories. This video in particular is part one of my adventure leaving Panama City and heading to New York. Tomorrow you'll get to see the 2nd half.

Episode 1: I woke up like this (and the fear of being seen)

I'm not sure why it is that the work we feel drawn to yields so much resistance. It seems that we think the things we love most are the most impossible and pointless to pursue.

Why?

For the next few weeks, the videos will be retroactive and not totally in accordance with where I'm currently located. I'm playing catch up. For example. this video says that I'm in Panama and well, I'm actually in Montreal! That being said, I should probably talk a bit more about what this whole video things is...

After having chatted with a new friend in Panama (hi Stuart!) and rediscovering Casey Neistat, I felt compelled to bite the bullet and just dive into shooting without much of an idea as to what the final product would look like.

For me, diving into the path of the artist and really committing to blogging has been the product of ghost roads and phantom futures being burnt to the ground in the past year. If you've followed any of the my blog or Instagram over the past 6 months, I talk very openly about the state I was in after some major loss. I'm flattered in some ways by the Universe's insistence that I stand in my true power.
