Do whatever brings you to life, then. Follow your own fascinations, obsessions, and compulsions. Trust them. Create whatever causes a revolution in your heart. @elizabeth_gilbert_writer ♥️🤙🏼🌊 I moved to The Rockaway’s 9 months ago and fell madly in love with the surf scene. I put aside the memoir I've been struggling with writing lately and started telling stories in a different way, photography, but more specifically, surf photography. The surfers bring it every day, which encourages me to do the same. And so here I am, where the city meets the sea, rediscovering myself and who I'm meant to be, embracing the revolution in my heart.
This workshop and working with @bryannabradleyphotography would definitely be a game changer for me--i'm ready to take it to the next level. .

Join us for the 7th Annual NY Women’s Surf Film Festival in Rockaway Beach, August 9-11 at the Rockaway Beach Surf Club. We then head to Montauk, August 16-18 at The Montauk Beach House.
