I’m still in the elementary phases of getting this blog underway. Not sure what this will do, as it has been a few months since my last correspondence. Looking to upload the latest research and writing projects I have commenced since I started school at Fuller.
As of right now, things have been going well. Looking forward to the start of the quarter, and I will be more smart about the system and flow of the quarter system!
Peace for now,
Greetings loved ones.
Getting involved with the LA Film Festival is a passion come true! I discovered the festival about a year or so ago, and vowed to attend and/or serve the people who put on such an elaborate venue. Last week went to a meeting where they invited us to explore the variety of departments in which a volunteer may work. Phenomenal people, phenomenal experience.
I wish to make the LA Film Festival a place to call home. I wish to help cultivate independent film as a medium for influence.
More details to come later. For now, I’m enjoying the exploration!
So things are looking up.
Upward and out of the atmosphere, I seek that which lies beyond my purview. I am looking to transfer to a different school. Not because the school I’m at is not sufficient. No, I am transferring in order to engage the atmosphere. I’m transferring (hopefully) to expand my awareness of that which lies in the unknown. I know I’m not the only one doing so, which is why I wish to be engaged in conversation with those presently asking the same (or similar) questions of faith, logic, reason, and perspective.
Okay, I’m back at it again. Probably don’t have any followers at this point, due to the fact that I have not checked this in a long while. Looking to revamp this blog a bit more. This summer will be filled with travels and mini-photogenic adventures.
See pictures later. For now, the end of the semester is beckoning me. Catch you on the flip side of this week. Papers due, so see ya in a week!
It’s 6:06 in the AM on Monday, March 21st. I slept a great deal after I got back from work at the church yesterday. And now I’m wide awake. I wonder why… trust me, I know why, but I’m intrigued.
This is my first blog post.
I was encouraged by a friend to begin blogging. I have never done this before. I am merely entering text at a coffee shop in hip Eagle Rock (Los Angeles near Pasadena). I have resorted to what my mind’s image paints as a “typical blogger and java drinker.” Is this the typical way one does blog? Are these the online journal entries people resort to when seeking an audience? Again, these are the entries of a mere traveler who sees the surface as dimly lit.
It’s up to me and you to discover that surface (and below said surface) despite the fact that light has not penetrated the depths as we might expect. This is fun.
As the title of this post reads (“Great Expectations”), I could not begin any other way. Since this is the first post, what should I say? Should it be a preamble of information? Should it be a list of things I wish to achieve in this process? Should it be the most random thought in my mind?
I feel my obligation herein is to present what I wish to do. I often see films. I often relate those films to my philosophical and theological and ethical outlooks. I know I’m not the only one who has a perspective. I know I’m not the only one to have ever had a second (or fiftieth thought) about a recently seen film. But what I do wish to dissert (new word, of or relating to a “dissertation”) is to reflect on the possibilities of influence. How might we be inspired by the creativity in life?
How might the culture in which we live in be brought to a greater light? I don’t know where to begin. That’s what I hope these blog posts will be. I hope you read further and I will read your posts.
