Alone in Rome for a few days and thinking of y’all. I miss you. Grateful for so many good people in my life.
I’m in Brazil to screen the film with some participants. It’s an opportunity to reconnect without the camera and get their feedback to ensure they feel well represented by what I’ve put together. It’s been an amazing time. We’ve all matured in the two years since I first started filming, and I’ve enjoyed following Ale, Cata and the rest of the crew as they do workshops around the south of Brazil.

Artists exist adjacent to markets. When the muse calls us to forms orthogonal to current monetary value, we need space to live and do our work. The hosts of this home in Albuquerque provide this space for artists. Simple, needed, effective at filling the world with more beautiful things.
A beautiful spot in the New Mexico desert, and a welcome break from the city.
