Just stepped out of my room and found a ‘reminder’ note that I had left on my door the night before I flew to Raleigh. It was written on the back of a bill in left hand script and it reads “Film! Film! Film!”. And while I did just that for a majority of my time in Raleigh/Durham, I realized how I wasn’t driven by the idea of a pretty picture or a perfect scene or what I wanted to capture, it did not end up being that way. It had become something much bigger than that. My drive unfurled into a panoramic of pure energy and bliss, for love of pure song and emotion. To watch these musicians, these humans, laugh and cry together. to make something bigger with each other than the sky can hold. It took me to a place I can not describe to you with words.
It’s funny how these things move you in directions and sort of force your feet and heart to areas you haven’t stepped. How your mind can pulse and sway with the tides of affection and happiness. While I attempted to capture these moments and their multitudes I found my self effortlessly floating in a space in time where certain things were just right and all around me. I was driven by the energy of others as much as myself. I am humbled, to say the very least, by you all. I am stricken with joy and gratefulness, I am not saddened.
