Jump for Joy! Photo Project Mural update July 26

Jump for Joy! Photo Project Mural update: After 2 full weeks of cutting and pasting together posters (usually 10-12 hrs a day)… I’m finally ready to start pasting the posters to the wall!

A pressure washer and scissor lift are being delivered to the lane on Monday.. Excited for the next phase of mural making!

Today, Im running around picking up the rest of the supplies.. which includes a trip to Blaine, Washington for the Tecknabond adhesive. The adventures of mural making :)

Exhausted and happy… loving every minute of the process!

FAQ: When will the #jumpforjoyphoto mural be completed?

FAQ: When will Jump For Joy Photo mural be finished?
A: My best guess: Im shooting to complete the Jump for Joy Photo mural by mid August. I have been working non stop preparing the photos for almost a week and still have about a week+ to go before applying posters to the wall.

If I can recruit some crafty volunteers to help past the posters together, everything will move a lot quicker… Any expert paisters out there want to get there hands dirty? :)

FAQ: Where is the mural located?
A: In the ally beside/on 161 East Pender Street.

FAQ: How long will the Jump for Joy Photo mural be up?
A: 1 year!

Selfie jumpin photo by Eyoälha Baker http://www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

I was feeling like creating some photos and had no one lined up to shoot the other day, so I started looking for somewhere to do some selfie jumping photos and came across these power lines in a clearing in North Vancouver. Sometimes the least likely places provide an interesting backdrop… so I did a series of selfie jumping photos here. Fun!

Enjoy your day today.. get out and play!

This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy…

“Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.” — Erich Fromm

Have a wonderful day!

you are always making up the future as you go…

“Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out. You’re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.” – Randall Munroe

Mikaela Karram, Chad MacRae,

Just love this group of fabulous joyful jumpers :) can’t help but smile when I remember how much fun this shoot was at the Planetarium in Kitsilano.

the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey…

“…it’s amazing that the words “happy” or “happiness” or “joy” are not included in the definition of the word “success.” Unfortunately, our conventional definition of success is simply achieving the goal. Not enough emphasis is placed on the value of experiencing and enjoying the journey, building character, and learning life lessons along the way.” – Steve Rizzo See more at: http://success.com/article/why-we-need-to-redefine-success#sthash.1evJBbAm.dpuf
