Gems 4.143

I hope you’re having a beautiful day. ♡
Here’s another light-filled ¤ Gem ¤


“This will take your undivided attention. Which is not an insignificant request…Warning. This is haunting. You might be haunted. It was filmed in front of an audience in the INNER VIEW METHOD.”


A man looked for meaning.
For his very place in life.

He searched high and low.

He’d often hear a whisper, calling
his name from the other side
of what seemed like a door.

A door that remained hidden
from his ability to see.

Frustrated, he’d knock on
everything that resembled
a door. Turning here,
and there. Turning
just about anywhere.

Then one day,
it opened.

And he realised that he’d been
knocking from the inside.
And that the whisper
had been an echo.

The echo of his own soul
reminding him that
he was already home.

-Nic Askew


I hope you have a moment to watch (full screen, with ear phones) this beautiful video, the latest of Nic Askew’s “Soul Biographies.”  I have wanted to take Nic’s “Inner View Method” course since I first saw Amo La Vida with Julio Olalla.  His incredibly beautiful method of interviewing is exactly the kind of biography I would love to offer for Volunteer Biographers.   It’s a dream.   Until then, Volunteer Biographers has three clients and we just assisted in the biography of a fourth client through transcription.  Also, today I’m very happy to announce that one of our homeless artists (who has made incredible changes and is no longer homeless) will be our next Volunteer Biographer client.  More on that in the months to come.  Meanwhile, if you are a photographer or videographer, you might find Nic’s course as compelling as I do.

We are photographers,
writers, artists & advocates
serving and connecting
homeless creatives.
