This weekend I started reading a book by an author whose mother also died when she was younger. Her two page account of that event made me cry 6 times that night. I cried more times in one evening than I had over the entire first year of my mother being gone. Grief is weird. I don't claim to understand ... This weekend I started reading a book by an author whose mother also died when she was younger. Her two page account of that event made me cry 6 times that night. I cried more times in one evening than I had over the entire first year of my mother being gone.
Grief is weird. I don't claim to understand it, but it feels liberating to pull back the curtain and share things like this at times. My mother, although deeply giving, was also incredibly private and I can only recall seeing her cry two times in my life.
Whether or not these traits are good or bad isn't relevant, and probably differs from a case to case basis, but it seems fair to say that I may have inherited some of that stoic nature.

All my other coping mechanisms consist of humor and busying myself to the point of mechanical routine. Since reading and writing are the only things that seem to take enough time and concentration to actually evoke an emotional response in my otherwise normal "life is great routine", I've been trying to make myself do them more often.
When Kid President was big, and my mother happened to love his videos, he quoted Robert Frost's famous poem "The Road Not Taken". After stating the author takes the road less traveled, the character comically interjects "and it hurt, man!" Choosing to face my grief is my road less traveled, and it does hurt! But I'm hoping in the end I can say, like Robert Frost, that it has made all the difference. So thank you Kid President, author Cheryl Strayed, Robert Frost, Mom, and everyone who is taking this journey with me. I'll leave you with a Mother's Day-ish quote from my book, and a promise that I will not be offended if you so choose to unfollow my corny ass on social media. "In this sense, she offers what we wish every mother would: enough compassion to make us feel safe within our broken need, and enough wisdom to hold on to hope"

Orangutans have taught me a lot about our connection to the earth. Sharing 97% of our DNA and having culture similar to our own, it is easy to see just how of-this-earth we really are, one family. In fact we are so similar that pharmacy pregnancy tests can be used to detect a pregnant female orangutan. Despite our similarities, orangutans are in particular need of our attention right now, their populations are in peril. A recent study suggests that with current trends continuing, orangutans will be extinct in the wild by 2030. Their future literally rests in our hands, with palm oil (contained in many of our everyday products) being the leading cause of their habitat decline. I hope you can take a moment to watch, share, and appreciate one of our closest relatives. The research featured in the film is part of a larger conservation effort and is one piece of the solution.
This project would not have been possible without my co-director Tim Laman @timlaman , co-producer Trevor frost @tbfrost , cinematographer Robert Suro @rrsuro , researcher Cheryl Knott @cheryl_d_knott and the many working to protect and learn more about orangutans on the ground in #GunugPalungNationalPark. #savegporangutans #earthday and thank you @Vimeo!
