Mahalo from the hardest act to follow. // 🤙🏽
So apparently resort hopping is a thing here on the island for locals. We rolled up there as if we were staying and got all the free amenities, ate at the happy hour and watched the sunset from the fountain. Sorry not sorry.
Found a jungle yesterday and this is exactly what it looked like to me at the moment // 😉🍄🤙🏽
I just free climbed down a 100 foot cliff to this absolutely amazing pool and had to scale it the whole way back up. Honestly the climb was one of the scariest things I have ever done in my entire life but I fucking did it man. I LOVE THIS LIFE!!! 🤙🏽
Spent yesterday celebrating my friend Evans birthday at this waterfall with good company, floaties, lots of jumps and plenty of beer. Happy birthday dude. 🤙🏽
Chase after your soul everyday, if there’s something you want to change about yourself, change it. Your own perception of the situation around you is the only perception that matters. No one else can ever be inside your mind or see what you see. Deal with yourself. You are all you have. 🖤
Yesterday I swam with sea turtles, wrote a song on the beach during sunset and met Shep Gordon at a local grocery store. I love this place.
Always strive to find the best in every situation. You will get nothing but bad vibrations from complaining. Remind yourself how much nothing really matters and that will lead you to the things that do. Never become complacent, continue to question, continue to wonder and accept that sometimes the question itself is the best answer. 🤙🏽
Yesterday I pushed myself to my limit and went on two of the most difficult hikes in all of Maui. Commando hike in Paia and the whole way to the top of Frog Falls. These involved literally scaling up the sides of gushing waterfalls, miles of walking through rivers, repelling down jagged rocks with old ropes, swimming across pools, climbing up through pitch black lava tubes wearing head lamps and finally rope-swing jumping off that 40 ft cliff behind me in the photo followed by cracking a cold beer. I am so proud of myself that I was able to do these and I thank the friends that took me so fking much! I would have never been able to do it without you guys. I had my fair share of falls but it was so worth it. Thankfully when we got to the top of frog falls I encountered a new friend with a camera who took this photo. I will never forget that experience yesterday!
In light of recent news I also would like to say that life is so precious and living each day like it’s your last is, although cliche, a very important maxim to understand. We are here for such a short time and our existence is but a blip in the spectrum of the infinite universe. Do your best to love those around you and let them know everyday. Determine what is important to yourself and chase after it. Mahalo, Brennan! 🤙🏽
Figure out who you are by determining who you aren’t. // 🖤📸🎨
At the airport headed to Hawaii to visit some old friends see you soon!
I met an amazing man by the name of Jerod Black last year at Electric Forest. He was one of the main forest builders and took me under his wing, showed me around the secret spots of the forest and introduced me to all the big wigs. Yesterday, exactly a year later, I shot his wedding in the magnificent Redwoods of Northern California. The ceremony was astounding, accompanied by an antique steam-train ride through the towering trees and a stop at a fairy circle of more enormous Redwoods only to witness the beautiful matrimony. This photo was taken right after the marriage in that very circle of trees. Mother Nature is a fkin Church man. I love this earth and the people on it!!
Two days ago Mod had just finished a song he made. He said he wanted to shoot a video but had somewhere to be at 5pm. It was 2pm. I strapped myself in the back of a truck and shot some performance footage in his studio and edited it all that day. I am currently at the redwoods in Northern California shooting a wedding and at the rehearsal dinner last night Mod hit me with last minute changes to the video and song so I ran out to my car, grabbed my laptop, made the changes, re rendered the video, asked the restaurant for their WiFi password and sent it to Mod 20 minutes later, he uploaded and posted all without the bride and groom even noticing I was gone lol. This is one of my favorite films I have ever created. It’s simplicity and message is so beautiful. I fking love this song and I love this life! @modsun
Try to never compare your success or achievements or failures or misgivings with anyone else. You are uniquely your own and no one else can change that. Be whatever you want, wear whatever you want, Love whoever you want to love and listen to your heart.
