Kirkjufell and it's mirror image in the lagoon just below Kirkjufellsfoss on my first day in Iceland. I have so many files from this trip and amazing as the country is to review, I still feel I'm getting into a creative slump by not giving my own city and state landscape a look. It's time to get out and be grateful for the ground on which my boots have landed

[IMMERSION] - im-mer-sion - State of being deeply engaged or involved; absorption. See also, "ingress" and the the act of going in or entering.
We want a label.
We want to associate "it" with "something".
We want to compare it to a similar event.
We want to identify a pattern we've encountered before within any initial description of the experience.
We want to reach a mental parallel based on the person leading it, or the people involved.
We want to understand it.
Immersion is not about what is taught. Immersion is about what is learned.
Immersion is not about the tough whatever, extreme challenges, savage this, spartan that.
Immersion is not about the military.
Immersion is not about the gym you go to.
Immersion is not about what gym you don't go to.
Immersion is not about your logo or brand.
Immersion is not about the company on your business card.
Immersion is not about your last name.
Immersion is not about your followers count.
Immersion is not about paragraphs on your LinkedIn.
Immersion is not about prestige or social media buzz or joining the latest shiny veneered club of select few.
Immersion is not about the roar of a thousand strong.
Immersion is about the still, small voice, inside of you.
Immersion is worth not ignoring the next time it comes around.
Immersion is the difference of today's "been there done that" scattered participation ribbons, and THAT look in someone's eyes who has been there and doesn't need to say it. You know that unique feeling that stirs inside when you come in contact with someone like that. You know that look. You know the difference they bring to your life compared to the recyclable regulars who regurgitate the current cadence and chorus.
It was an honor to support @BtwnTheEars IMMERSION 001 this past weekend.
Thought of posting more photos in the series, but after experiencing the weekend the right call is to call it at one.. and for you to learn more from @BillAnthes and @KarianneAnthes as #BTWNTheEars unfolds further and further.
Yes, it is worth it.
Yes, it will make a difference.
All this for just £10 😍 Fish, chips and beer or if you prefer swap the fish for a burger! Drooling yet? Go on...treat yourself and indulge in some comfort food this Autumn 🍁🍂#TreatYourself#TasteStGiles#StGilesLondon
