5 days left. We can do it!
Oh My Universe.
What a week. Game changer, thats for sure.
So much has happened, but it all comes down to one important note. Let go and trust in the Universe.
I tend to have a problem with this. Not with the idea or notion, just with the action. I think its a wonderful philosophy and I try my best to abide by it, but I gotta be honest: It’s hard for me to let go. I like to have control over certain things and the thought of me just letting it all go and trusting in a force I can’t see rattles my bones.
If overanalyzing were a job, baby I’d work overtime every week.
But I have to do it.
Valerie and I are going to go on this journey…this mission.
We are going to take photographs and capture people and places in small town America, and we’re going to share these photographs with the rest of the country. Nay. The rest of the world.
We are going to take great photographs and create a legacy.
We’re going to remind the rest of the country that film photography is not dead, and neither are the people and towns just off the old highways.
We’re going inspire other people that they can live their dreams, no matter how impossible it seems at the time.
The most important thing I’ve learned is that when you have a goal and are true to yourself, then the Universe will provide the means to achieve your goal.
For the first time, I know that this is much bigger than either one of us thought.
Its not about us and what we can get. Its about what we can give back through our photographs.
We appreciate everyone's contributions so far, and we're excited to reach our goal. Thank you so much!
