Because you were born with the capacity to love and be loved. Because no matter what happened in the past, you survived. Because your heart is beating and your eyes are open. Because you are a living, changing, magnificent human being. Because you are here to experience a brand new day.
A year ago today, we launched Metastate Movement as a declaration of our creative independence. With two cameras and a voice recorder in hand, we set out to capture the stories of individuals in more than 10 cities. When we returned home in August with full hard drives and memory cards, we sat down to find the heartbeat of each story. Over the next 11 months, we worked to share each lesson we learned with this developing community. To continue the tradition, we set sail again for the next two months to refuel, reflect and reconnect with our creative selves. Have a wonderful remainder of the summer, and see you in September!
