This weekend I went to Wellington for a Directing Documentary Film seminar by Leanne Pooley (director of The Topp Twins). Leanne is basically my filmmaking idol so it was incredible to be able to learn from her for two days.
It was held at The Film Archive which is a great venue.
It was a very inspirational and informational 2 days. And now I am back on track.
I realized that my emphasis had become about inspiring people (which is pretty hard considering I don’t know if anyone even reads this) and not about my mission, and lost my way there for awhile….
I have now come back to my true intention which really is about facing myself. That it’s all about self reflection really.
The water is a mirror into the soul. Mirror Mirror on the Water.
I have come to see that it is all about mirrors and at the end of the day when I look in the mirror do I like what I see. That is the true reason for this journey. Truth be told right now I am maybe 50/50. I am hoping by the time I finish this I will be 100 percent and that will be the true World Championships. Do I like myself at the end of the day?
It just so happened that I got invited to a Fire and Ice party while I was in Wellington. Well of course I dressed up as Fire. And a big thanks to my sponsor Iconic Sport who provided the perfect fire ensemble.
It is always good coming home however and really makes me appreciate my life at the moment.
Keeping it Simple.
