We love all the incredible women in this community and are always blown away by the passion and creativity that shines through. Los Angeles based creative @kristinelliss is one of those women and she captures emotion and the natural world in a way that forces you to pause and take it all in.

This capture by @clo.photo reminded us of the beauty that’s found in the in between. Never doubt the power of each of the stops along your personal journey. All the places in between your present and the future reality you seek.

On this day we pause to reflect on the thousands upon thousands of men and women who have given their lives for the sake of freedom and justice. We have come so far, but we still have far to go to realize a world where all are free. Today we honor each and every person standing, advocating, and fighting for freedom.

Over the last few years we’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing partners, and this past month we’ve been focusing our attention on the incredible work being done by our friends at @knownsupply and @krochetkids. One of their founders, @kohlgreyson recently shared a powerful TEDx talk on the power of knowing who made your clothes. These guys are changing the landscape of the fashion industry for the better and we’re proud to stand with them. You can watch the talk via the link on @kohlgreyson’s page.
We’re excited to present "From the Dust" a short film by @rjbruni in collaboration with @israelcollective featuring Scott Bakken (@scottcbakken), Sam Kolder (@sam_kolder), Morgan Harper Nichols (@morganharpernichols), Raan Parton (@raanparton), Brook Mosser, and Christian Watson (@1924house). You can watch the full version of the film via the link in our bio.
From the Producer, Scott Bakken:
We all have our origins when it comes to our story. How we live, what we create, and what we offer this world all stem from a deeper place. We took creators to the land where history has been shaped so we could dream together. Whatever season you are at in life, I hope this film inspires you to create and causes you to dream. It will take work, sacrifice, and commitment but we can all bring something of value that can come from the dust of our lives.
From the Director, RJ Bruni:
When seeing Israel for the first time instantly you feel moved by the landscape. Beautiful vast horizons with so much history that you can deeply feel. Through this film we want to touch on that specific feeling by seeing it through the eyes of creatives and hear how it inspires them to keep making art. We realized quickly that this would be a trip none of us could ever forget.

“We are all messy miracles. We could so easily give up, so easily break down and stay on the ground, we could so easily choose to never get up from our mess yet there’s something (or someone) in us that keeps us going from strength to strength, from grace to grace, from one crying sesh to the next. What is it, if not a miracle?”

“A joyful rebellion is you living differently not because you're mad at how things are but because you are swelling with joy at the thought of how things could be. When you joyfully rebel against your circumstances, against mediocrity or negativity, you invite others into something really beautiful.”

As the calendar turns over another month closer to the end of the year, we reflect on so many reasons to be grateful. Near the top of that list are those nearest. May November bring with it a reminder of that which is most important and a gratitude for those we get to walk through life with.
