I’ve been blogging since probably 2007, and have had the most wonderful and amazing things come to pass from my little ol’ blog.
I really attribute much of my success to digital publishing! (So get on it if you are not!)
I’ve traveled the world filming, owned and created a cult brand, gone on tour, released a full-length studio album, spoken at universities, starred in a tv show, and worked creatively with wonderful partners,, and 100% think its all from steadily documenting what I’ve been up to.
At times I’ve looked good and succeeded, and at other times I’ve failed and looked like crud. And I’m doing great. LOL. …I think that is all part of the process. Life has ups and downs, but its the journey. I stand by the journey and the process.
Lately, as a result of these ponderings of digital publishing and its magic, I’ve taken up vlogging. It’s been so cosmic! I really enjoy the filming and the editing and the publishing. All aspects!
I most enjoy the movement, so much movement, it makes everyday feel like a blur. And when you realize all that you are missing via the camera, you also realize how packed your day is with beauty. The truly effortless beauty of all of life has become so salient and divine to me! The way a kettle boils has become art. The crumb dangling on my lip has become art. The odd stumbling pursing of my lips as a resting, idle or go-to expression, hyperbolized. What an affair this life stuff…
I love it.
…& All the drab and lackluster moments have sprung forth into the spotlight; ‘the mundane risen’ is my ode to my own reality.
I do realize, having reflected back on my early vlogs, that I am sharing very basic moments. And I’m okay with that as well. It’s definitely more challenging to grab the moments of drama or excitement. I guess for now I get to keep those for just myself. Although I will try to grab as I grow in this medium. (And i feel that I am already growing, in such a short time,, & beginning to capture things that truly interest and excite my senses.. and I hope yours too one day!)
I’ll leave you with this, all lives are art and inherently creative. All lives have nuances and peaks and valleys. Remember to do you and find pleasure in your crumbs, or in your awkward gazes, because there is so much beauty in those moments, its amazing!
