I feel like every post I have made so far is about the spring. I seem to especially like to focus on the sun and warmth it has brought with it. This post is going to be no different.
Though the rain has come and gone, I still cling to the smell of fresh blooming cherry blossoms (which BC is blessed to have many of) and the smell of slight smoke from the farmers burning the left over signs of winter. This is the best time to go on adventures. My mom and I are big explorers! We'll get in the car and purposely drive down roads that say no exit or get "lost" out in the country searching to see what we can find.
We went on one of these adventures the other day. We hadn't done this in a while, but we had the windows down and the wind was blowing through our hair. We drove down bumpy country roads, and avoided going home at all costs. We even occasionally parked the car to the side of the road (or sometimes in the middle of, if it was a dead end) to get out and take pictures. My mom is a photographer, and she passed that spark down to me.
I don't just enjoy taking photos as we go along these adventures. As an actor and storyteller I find exploring like this ignites a light inside my soul. We'll drive by big open fields, small hobby farms, houses with a white picket fence. monster homes, small towns, tree lined driveways, abandoned old cars rusting away being over taken by nature. All of these things create one question over and over again. I wonder what story has, is or could take place here? My imagination soars and I begin to build it as I know best, like a movie.
I may never reach the worlds standard of stardom. But if there is one thing I want to do with my life, it will always be to tell stories. These adventures I take remind me that I'm not doing this for fame, money (definitely not money) or validation. I'm telling stories because I want people to experience this light, this spark of wonder, the rush of emotions as they take an adventure through a story, via, cinema, TV, or books. I want to evoke emotions, make memories, and build dreams. Taking adventures, also means taking risks. So I dare you to risk this week, I dare you to risk towards your dream, to do something that brings you to life. Go on an adventure, smell the cherry blossoms, and ignite the fire in your soul.
