There is a lot of space in a bus, if you take all of the seats out. You can build a loft to sleep on and store winter clothes and other supplies under it. A few book shelves can provide space for kitchen supplies and a library. Curtains on the windows ensure a little privacy… I wish my parents had thought a little harder about insulation though, that thing got HOT in the summer and COLD in the winter! Heating a metal home wasn’t so bad, just needed two wood stoves that vented out windows. But when it was hot, there was no way to fix it.
I had a lot of time to dream. We lived so far outside of society that I spent a considerable amount of time in the wilderness, imagining a different life; one that other kids had, with houses and routine. That imagination has never diminished. In fact, it has grown into something I can’t ignore, outside the bounds of my head. Theater was not a big enough space to hold such an imagination, so I turned to film.
