making shorts

a little more than a week away from principle photography on my short film/directorial debut. things are coming together, falling into place...

there's a certain amount of delusional grandeur that's required to be a beginner at something. I remember thinking, all those months ago when I first started writing the script, that I'd just make a short film, that it couldn't be "that hard".

it's laughable now that I thought it would be something I could churn out in a weekend.

but after months of getting things together, planning & rewriting, we're finally on the home stretch of pre-production. we shoot the final weekend of January & then the new adventure of post production begins!

weekly griffith park wanderings...

I like these trees, the way they curl & crawl
toward the sun.

new year's eve tarot

a little tarot spread for the last day of 2015, looking forward to what 2016 has to bring... using the star spread from Rachel Pollack's New Tarot Handbook.

A: Hope
8 of wands
entering 2016 there's positive movement in your life. things are moving. this won't be another year of stagnation...

B: Guidance
9 of pentacles
follow your inner guide to satisfaction & fulfillment this year. but also remember to stay present & grateful for where you are, how far you've come, & what you've achieved.

C: Peace
the hanged man inverted
peace comes from moving on. this year you're ready to untie yourself from a binding situation that no longer serves you & let go.

D: Healing
10 of cups
I think of the 10 of cups as the happiest card in the entire deck. your healing comes through happiness & fulfillment but it is also its cause. healing creates happiness & happiness creates healing. cultivate both in 2016. 

happy new year everyone. may 2016 continue to be weird & wonderful for you & bring many moments of learning, laughing, & a lot of burritos.
