Besides the stress, time constraints, and general craziness, going to school gave me something else, peaceful joy!
My time in class is like meditation. I could worry about the laundry not getting done or the business call I probably won’t be able to return until morning or that I missed tucking my daughter into bed, but I don’t… OK maybe a little… but mostly I feel quite present while in class. I’m able to concentrate on my lectures and projects and find complete joy in their completion.
My first film project was a “Mood Project” shot on 16mm black and white reversal film using a Bolex. Little P is such a big part of my life and wanted to be in my film so I added her, even though it was against the ‘rules’ to use an actor.
Peaceful Joy conveys how I feel about finding myself in school at this point in my life.
