I love making movies. I am convinced that it's what I'm supposed to do with my life.  What specific area I will be making money in, that I do not know (and hope and pray that it is a specific area that brings in a lot of income...teehee). BUT that's the fun part right now. Not being funded whatsoever and having to do every little bit of a project with a handful of people is exhilarating and I would not trade this experience for the world (or for an expensive film school for that matter).  I LOVE it. I want to make films every single day. I have withdrawals every day that I don't work on something.  It even makes me want to quit school for good and go for it (but not in the "i'm packing my life in my car moving to LA to become FAMOUS" kind of thing). I think I'll stay right here in Nashville.  There are some good people here who are aching to do the same things I am.  That is so incredibly exciting to me. Thinking about making movies makes me feel like a kid at Christmastime. 

That being said, I'm not sure why I haven't properly advertised this on my personal blog.  Probably because we already have a million websites which are seen only by maybe 3 pairs of eyes at most. However, for the off chance someone else reads my blog, go check these out for realz...


I'm proud of my buds and I for actually making a freaking short film and for continuing to write even though we are often sorely tempted to wear snuggies (see below) and watch summer heights high instead. It's all part of the process though, I suppose. 


Our quiet dwelling place...

If you like reading the Bible, you should go read Psalm 90 & 91. I find it extremely encouraging in my life right now.  If you don't like reading the Bible, you should probably give it a try.  If you like smoking cigarettes and eating chocolate, read the Bible while smoking a cigarette and eating a chocolate bar. I love that I have finally discovered that the Bible is not a salad thing. It's a dessert and cigarette thing. If you've read Blue Like Jazz, that'll make a lot more sense. ANYWAY.

Some food for thought... I have not ever thought about this part of God's character before...

"The Israelites in the wilderness were continually exposed to change.  Whenever the pillar of cloud stopped, the tents were pitched; but the next day the morning sun arose, the trumpet sounded, the ark was in motion, and the fiery, cloudy pillar was leading the way through the narrow mountain passes, up the hillsides, or along the arid wastes of the wilderness.  They scarcely had time to rest a little before they heard the sound of 'Onward! This is not your rest; you must keep journeying onward toward Canaan!' They never stayed for long in one place.  Even wells and palm trees could not detain them.

They had an abiding home in their God; His cloudy pillar was their roof, and its flame by night their fireplace.  They must go onward from place to place, continually changing, never having time to settle or to say 'Now we are secure; we will stay in this place.' Moses says, 'Though we are always changing, Lord, you have been our dwelling-place throughout all generations."

My unmoving mansion of rest is my blessed Lord.  Even when prospects are few and hopes are squashed and joy is waning, I have lost nothing of what I have in God.  He is "my refuge" to which I continually return.  I am a pilgrim in the world, but at home in my God.  In the earth I wander, but in God I dwell in a quiet dwelling place."
