Back in LA

Dear Loved Ones,

So I'm back in Los Angeles, not as a stop over point, or to catch some shut eye between travels. For the first time in a long time I'm really back. If you know me, you  also know I've been avoiding Los Angeles/being in one place like the plague, but I finally feel good about being here. I know that it's the right move for me to stand still for the time being.

I've been super blessed to be able to travel for the majority of the year thus far--and to make art while on the road. My time in Japan refreshed me in so many ways. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed taking photos and sharing stories via Honey and Smoke blog. I feel recommitted to something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember--tell stories in any way or medium that I can. So, this won't be the last you hear from me. The project of Honey and Smoke will simply take on a new form, as I settle into the changes of life here in LA.

There are a couple of video projects in the oven right now, featuring footage from Cuba and Japan, so definitely stay tuned. And in the mean time, here are a few photos I took in Kyoto that I think capture the essence of poetic, meditative travel.

Thanks for your support so far.

With Love,
