Forever on the Far Side

Posted by on Dec 13, 2017 in Observations, Poetry

I wrote this after noticing how a particular someone would consciously and very obviously avoid those who didn’t agree with his way in the world. The effect such obvious exclusion has on the world is vastly underestimated, and we could all stand to examine if we are ever complicit in such behavior. #exclusion #bullying

Forever on the Far Side

On the Possession of an Adventure

Posted by on Nov 1, 2017 in Poetry

Did you ever possess
an adventure
to call your own?

One that ran through
your veins like
blood caught fire.

Causing your heart
to beat far
beyond
its chest.

Did you ever possess
such an adventure?

A Rethink on Leonard Cohen’s Near Immortal Line

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017 in Observations, Poetry, Words

Having re-read the #LeonardCohen near immortal line “there is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”, I got to wondering if perhaps the light might have already been inside attempting an escape. And if that was the case then what that might say to the journey of becoming a someone.

The Man in the Cottage

Posted by on Oct 22, 2017 in Films, Soul Biographies Experience

There was a man who lived in a cottage. He came to a day course I once did, and said ‘I’ve had a lovely day out’. The words were not entirely true. The next time I was in England I felt compelled to drive half the length of the country with my camera. This is the result. Fair warning – this is way out there …

I Wish People Would Understand Each Other. That’s it.

Posted by on Jul 25, 2017 in Images, Soul of America
I Wish People Would Understand Each Other. That’s it.

America has an inner voice. A voice that’s been mostly ignored. A voice that exists beyond the opinions of right and wrong. And so I have set out to capture it on film. America’s very Soul.

In starting such an adventure there have been some definitive moments. In a 3rd Grade in Tucson, Arizona a young girl stood by my shoulder, and when it came time to sit in front of the camera she said ‘I wish people would just understand’. When I asked her ‘Understand what?’ she replied ‘Each other. I wish people would understand each other. That’s it.’

And with that she stood up and walked off. As if she had come from far off to say just those few words. To tell us how simple it might be. But of course hearing the words and the words falling deep and irrevocably inside are so often poles apart …

We Actually Look At Each Other Differently

Olav de Maat and his girl friend came along to an evening entitled ‘How to See the Human Soul’ in Amsterdam a few weeks back. And that is what we set about doing. With the image from the Soul Biographies camera projected on to a large cinema screen. Imagine the subjects – thank you Goor and Carolien – left with nowhere to hide and the beyond intimate black and white image leaving the audience similarly with nowhere to hide.

He wrote me this simple line a few days ago, about the experience of seeing deeper from inside their relationship.

‘… we actually look at each other differently now. Literally.’

In That Silence Everything Changed Forever

I’m often contacted by those who have been in front of the camera. A few weeks ago I received these few words from one such subject, filmed recently on Continental Europe;

“… in that silence everything changed forever.’

Truth, Freedom and an Invitation

Posted by on Jun 3, 2017 in Audio, Events, News, Soul Biographies Experience

It’s 2am. You’re wide awake.
Feeling alone. Unseen.
And inexplicably lost.

Discontent despite all
that you have around you.

The people. Your life.
Your dreams.

You wear a face that tells
the world you’re OK,
but you’re not.
You’re bone achingly tired
from the relentless
game of belonging.

You long for a meaningful place
in the world. And to
belong without condition.
Without struggle.

You long to be seen …

The Meaning of Cake

Posted by on Jun 2, 2017 in Observations, Poetry, Words

Might we exist in a world of too much, where much of that much doesn’t actually bring us what we are truly after.

The Most Unusual Game of Walkabout

Posted by on May 27, 2017 in Behind the Film, Events, Films, Interviews, News, Products

There was a time where I was almost between Worlds. The Business World and the World that would come. But a World I didn’t know existed. And I made a game up. In retrospect it drew my notice to something that would define the way of Soul Biographies. The way of so much that I now experience. Last week I sat in front of the camera, and recounted the experience of this game …
