My relationship with this special place has always been quite an elusive one. Over the last several years I’ve been privileged enough to learn of its history, its culture, it’s beauty, it’s language, it’s resilience, and its people...through its people. Love brought me this, and as an extension, gave me friends that have become family since. Yet, things don’t always turn out the way you expect them to and opportunities to experience this place for myself seemed to continually fall through like it was nothing new. So I just let it go and let it be, knowing time will play things out accordingly, and of course as soon as I did, along comes this unique opportunity. A chance to finally visit this place physically in exchange for sharing the work I’ve put myself into passionately. Man, what a dream this was turning out to be. And so it was, as new friendships formed through collaborative creativity, and old bonds calcified through the reconnection of family. I sit here thankful for everything this journey means to me, and I look forward to the next time I can come back and create more memories. With this place.
Big mahalo to @picpacific and @guamfilmfestival for giving me the opportunity to come learn, share, and reconnect. 🙏🏽
