Greetings from Camp Now!  

When I first met Cassidy A. Maze (aka, your old friend Lizzie West), she showed me her latest blog post, which began… "Keep your name. Change your name. Reserve the right to change your name…" And, naturally I knew I was in the right place. I am Lynnette. I am Lucy. Sometimes, I am L*. I am a producer, a filmmaker, a photographer, a writer, a traveler, an educator with a passion for the power of story. And now, I am Camp Now/Crealitation campaign manager and project coordinator for Creality Salons and Musical Markets.

In 2001 I escaped from a marriage and a career that were both imprisoning me in a reality that was not my own. I launched on a mission to create my own reality and haven’t looked back since. Every day for me is a discovery of the thoughts, words, actions, and connections that propel my story in the direction of the Peace I know is possible.

In 2003 I started Beansprout Productions out of my belief and passion for the power of stories to connect us by exposing both our similarities and our differences and ultimately, revealing that “We Are All In This Together” and that our stories shared are the path to Peace. This creed inspires my work with youth, artists, authors, musicians, and organizations across multiple platforms online and on the ground around the world.

I am excited that my journey continues now as part of the Camp Now/Crealitation crew. My first step in this journey was to subscribe to the “Dear You…” Daily, where I witness the evolution of Crealitation in real time. I encourage you to subscribe, as well to receive one exclusive, free page every weekday of the Crealitation (The Myth, Method, Music and Magic of Cassidy A. Maze) manuscript, as it's written, prototyped and published by the author herself!

I adore the idea of looking back from the future to reSee reality. In my younger colleagues and storytellers I see an alternate version of my young self and know what is possible. I carry her alongside me on this journey, giving her all the encouragement, praise, and faith in her truth that no one did way back then. I remind her that it is her own superpowers that brought her here, as me, Now. I thank her and invite her to be friends in Crealitation with her passionate, fearless, and empowered peers at Camp Now.  

These next few weeks I’ll be busy putting the pieces together to bring you the Creality Salons and Musical Markets happening in July. 

I have been photographing the fairgrounds since 2008. It is quite magical to see its evolution and regeneration!

Stay tuned for more details, tickets, and information on these magical events. In the mean time, please email me at info@campnow.biz if you have questions or if you’d like me to reserve your space!

I’m so glad to be here with you. That you are reading this means we are both exactly where we need to be right now… in this together.

PEACE
