When I began Maybe McQueen in 2012, after experiencing the most extraordinary decade that I could have ever imagined, it was with the sole intention of sharing a story or two that might possibly inspire you to explore what more life has to offer, with a view to embracing the ups and downs of life’s journey and the opportunities that a bumpy old ride often invites.
As Maybe McQueen has grown and evolved, so too has my need to co-create with other storytellers who share a common vision of embracing all that life has to offer and who care enough to share and therefore support, inspire, motivate and move those who are feeling very much alone on their journey. I’m drawn to many different forms of creative media, like film, that have the potential to grab you and shout loudly and passionately, “Look…there is more to this than meets the eye and if you open up to the gifts in all, anything and everything is possible!”
For me, storytelling is, in the great words of a dear friend, a ‘connection tool’ that allows us to break down barriers, inhibitions and fears and helps us to identify, accept and ultimately be open to experiencing challenge in a very different way. It highlights that we are not alone in our experiences and are fully capable of making a difference IF, and it’s a big IF, we are just willing enough to share the journeys and insights gained along the way and be a part of a wonderful collective that makes a difference.
So, what follows is the very beautiful trailer from René Eckert’s short film of blickinsfreie.de which will be released later this year. Where Shadow Becomes Light is my story so far and an invitation, from me to you, to explore life, love and loss. It is a wonderful and timely summary, I guess, for where I am emotionally and philosophically, nearly two and a half years later…
If you have a meaningful story that might inspire, move, support or educate in some way, we would love to hear from you.
