One Week to Nova Scotia

Nothing describes how I’m feeling better than this T-Shirt from Nova Scotia Webcams.

I’ve been going through the motions of my everyday life, but my heart and mind is lost to daydreaming about my journey.

I just want to be in Nova Scotia! Am I there yet?

In a week I’ll be boarding a flight to Halifax, where I’ll stay until Tuesday August 27th. Hopefully on that Tuesday, I’ll be flying out to Sable Island to videotape my documentary.

This journey feels surreal. I don’t think I’ll truly realize this documentary is real until I’m at the Victoria Airport boarding my flight to Halifax. I’ve waited so long to be on Sable Island that now I can’t believe it’s only a week away. I’m half expecting I’ll fall asleep one night and wake up realizing this is all just a dream.

The journey to Sable Island has worn me down and picked me back up so many times. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions. And it’s all been so lovely.

When I begin to doubt myself I just look back at how far I’ve come. I never imagined I’d be one of the few permitted to visit Sable Island nor would I be able to raise the funds to get there. Somehow everything has fallen into place. I want to call it luck, but I know it’s more than that. When you are living your dream, you will find a way to do it and the world will help pave the path. I truly believe that now.

This documentary has shaped into something more than just a movie. It’s the realization that we all must pursue our passions and be supportive and compassionate towards each other. You have taught me that.

I want to give a huge shout out to those in Nova Scotia who will be putting up with me over the next while! Thank you for your hospitality and kindness. I truly can’t thank you enough for your support and encouragement. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you.

Thank you  Kickstarter supporters for travelling along this journey with me. I feel so blessed to have such an amazing team!

Only a week to go! It’s almost here.
