“May what I do flow from me like a river, no forcing and no holding back, the way it is with children”
Rainer Maria Rilke
This is a wonderful documentary. It tells the story of someone who found their bliss.
I like it for three reasons.
- This man has found what he loves and has had the courage to forget money and do it. I’m always drawn to stories about people that make a seismic shift from the prescribed pattern of life.
- Through simple living he is able to find the financial freedom to do what he really wants to do.
- The combination of being in the zone (flow state) and his visual degeneration is a perfect cocktail to ignore the opinion of others. Many of us would be too self-conscious and too concerned about what other people think to let go and enjoy life this much.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
