This adventure short is going to be unlike anything you've seen. Meditative and respectful, the film exhibits an extraordinarily discerning eye for visual artistry and storytelling. Kayaker, mother and grandmother Melody Shapiro paddles the waters and mysteries of Lake Powell while narrating on motherhood and how it shapes her place in the world. And beyond. "We all have the mother inside of us . . . It has to do with the ability to love and nurture and protect life as a whole." She dives into the many thoughts and troubles that undoubtedly confront a parent, especially the ones that creep into your brain while on a solo adventure. Why am I here, how did we get here, where are we going, what's going to happen? The presentation is quiet, gentle and alluring.

The Sunday Morning Chillax is here while you're enjoying a cup of coffee in the quiet morning as your kids, hopefully, sleep in. No need to read, this is always a video; something to give you happy thoughts about mountains, fresh air, stoke, fun, or being outside. Enjoy. Relax. And, um, not guaranteed to be weekly — hey, you get what you pay for but it's a dang good bargain.
