Live TV! Overcoming My biggest Fear! June 16, 2007

Well not the live part… that feels like second nature…

In a post some weeks ago I wrote about the hardest thing I’ve had to overcome and that thing of course was my fear… lotsa varieties that manifest themselves in oh… quitting, failure, overeating, procrastinating… you know… but they all boil down to one thing… fear that who I am is not enough.

Well.. here I go… tellin the world that I who I am is enough.. that I am passionate and powerful and I believe in me….

(I know…that sounds so dopey and self-helpey… but its true..if you have a better way to say it please submit!!!! I would be ever grateful!

A fantastic DP just signed on…we will be shooting virals in a few weeks…..Everything is falling into place…. Here I go!!!

You can here their single “Whatever it is” on this week’s episode, “Are You Good Enough?” (and audio supplement) and you can support these indie artists by buying their fabulous 4 song EP on itunes!

From the Mouths of babes….Julien Smith Gives children a Voice April 13, 2007

Filed under: children,inspiration,juliensmith,kids,life,parenting,podcasting — kveljones @ 8:34 pm

scream

Its all about the children really….probably a not so veiled attempt to resolve some of my own childhood pains… never the less…

This past weekend (see previous entry) I had the great joy to meet Julien Smith… whose podcast Listen to your Kids “connects kids that want to share with parents that want to listen.”

Julien hosts a phone line… kids call in and anonymously record their thoughts, and then Julien posts them to an rss feed so that parents can listen to the things their children are afraid to (and yet desperate to) tell them…

The kids cover all sorts of issues, but one moved me especially…

If I could tell my parents anything, I think I would tell them to lighten up, you know… you might have the greatest kid in the world and not trust them at all, and then, so, you squeeze em and squeeze em and squeeze em and don’t let em do anything even though he’s probably the best kid you know and while other kids whose parents trust them completely are going out and doing whatever…

I don’t think this child is really asking his parents to “lighten up” I think he is screaming..

SEE ME… SEE ME… NOT ME AS A REFLECTION OF YOU, NOT ME THROUGH THE LENS Of YOUR FEARS, OR HOPES OR FAILURES. I AM STANDING BEFORE YOU AND ASKING YOU TO LOVE ME FOR ME, UNCONDITIONALLY, AND FOREVER.. THE WAY I DESERVE TO BE LOVED.

SEE ME FOR THE WONDERFUL PERSON I AM, IF YOU, MY PARENT CAN’T SEE THAT IN ME, HOW CAN I SEE IT IN MYSELF?

Julien has given this child a voice. What an amazing amazing thing. Thank you Julien!

 

Recovering from Podcamp NYC April 9, 2007

Filed under: Podcamp NYC,podcasting,video podcast — kveljones @ 8:35 pm

I had the amazing honor to be one of the organizers of the behemoth this weekend that was Podcamp NYC…. I spent all day yesterday recovering from the podcamp whirlwind and have thoughts and feelings galore…. and will get to them as soon as I cross some of the tasks off my list from those projects that pay my bills that I have sadly neglected for the past week..

but I do want to say this… what an incredible gift to have worked with such an amazing group of people, I am a little bit in love with each member of the podcamp nyc team…with their wisdom, their kindness, their incredible grace in the face of a lot of unnecessary dramas, their unique visions that they pursue with such courage and tenacity, and their plain old wonderfulness… I miss you guys already and I so look forward to more more more!!!!!!!!!!
