December 31st, 2015, we set sail from a Fort Lauderdale Florida. Three filmmakers and a cat-sized dog on a 44-foot sloop taking our first definitive step toward circumnavigating the world. We are out here to test ourselves, to grow and to learn – to dig through this world in search of life’s lessons. We don’t look at this as a vacation, but an expedition. We are here because in the landscape of each and every human imagination lies one special place. Our inner compass keeps pointing us towards this spot, which is magnetic, mysterious, exotic, and alluring but, alas, always fringed by the frontier of our fears. Still, it is to this specific place that we are compelled to travel in order to know ourselves and in so doing, call our lives complete. We are here in search of wholeness, for in our chests, hiding just beneath each breath lies a hollow, and always it has cried out to be filled. Traveling under sail has provided the opportunity to connect deeply with the people and places we encounter. We’re taking our time, becoming a part of the landscape instead of just observing it. This is just the very beginning of a life-altering expedition and we are excited to share our progress with you.
We’re attempting to sail around the world: helm in one hand, camera in the other.
