Quote of the week:

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." - Oprah Winfrey

*** I have been on do to some challenges raising funds for my Jump for Joy! Photo Project... so I have taken a new tact. I am entering a competition which would allow me to continue my project, and dream of taking jump for joy photos around the world.....

A couple of days ago, I taught myself how to edit, put
this video together of a little mini tour of Vancouver and entered a travel contest called My Destination's Biggest Baddest Bucket List. I feel that a big part of what makes a place unique are the people, so I included some of the amazing people who jumped for joy with me all around Vancouver in my video :) Enjoy! 

Winning the contest is a bit of a long shot as I came in a bit late in the game and the leaders already have several thousand votes but you never know until you try :) So please, help make dream come true! On my entry page scroll down to the green box, then vote by SHAREing on facebook, twitter, stumble, Pinterest and G+ :) Thank you for your kind support :) Every SHARE=VOTE

Thank you for your continued support in spreading the JOY! DONATE TO JUMP FOR JOY!!

Q: What inspires you to want to jump for joy?
A: Freedom to live the life that I have chosen for myself and the recognition that I can make that what ever I want.

Q.What was your experience like doing the jumping photos?
A: It was a pleasure, it was a fun day with a friend while making a new friend. Exploring a new part of my city. It made me feel loose and care free.

Q: What inspires you in life?
A: This depends on the day and my mood. It changes with time and experiences, different people and learning from their experiences as well as my own. Life inspires me. Watching fellow human beings express themselves in beautiful compelling ways. Everything inspires me.

Q: What is your greatest passion in life?
A: My passion is community building. I enjoy watching people come together... 'because my friends become your friends & your friends become my friends and the more we come together, the happier we'll be.'

Q: What is your driving force in life?
A: Learning about and understanding the human foundation, the why's, the hows, the science and the soul of it all.

Q: What is your philosophy in life?
A: Patience & tolerance for everyone including myself.

Q: If you could do anything in the world, what would it be?
A: Building the art community I've been working on for 10 years, and god willing I will take it to where I dreamed it to one day be, its my dream come true. There are many many many other things I would love to do, but most of the time a person has stay focused on just one, maybe a few things if they want it blossom into its fullest life.

Q: What work/art/projects are you working on?
A: also a few other grand art shows… years in the making... I will make sure to invite you when they are ready.

Q: Mini bio, interesting facts about you or something special you want to share.
A: I like popcorn, extra salt & extra triple layered butter. Its better the next day. (I don't like to share it). I chew hard candy and swallow my gum, therefore I don't eat it anymore. I think that the 7 year thing is a hoax or I am in big trouble. I hate public speaking and I suck at it as much as I hate it. I believe in god, I don't believe in religion, I wish there was a religion I could believe in. The only thing that stops me from going to my 7am yoga is me.

I was adopted as a baby. I now know both sets of my parents... nature and nurture and I am a bi-product of all four parents. I believe in astrology, I am a Leo. I wish I had more time to learn about astrology, science & the human experience. That is a lie, I have the time, I don't put the effort in.

I have a two year old baby & husband, I had a dream wedding last summer & am married to my dream husband. I never dreamed of any of this… yet its all a dream come true. I spend time thinking about weird shit like that. I have doctor approved Adult A.D.D but I prefer to call it A.D.S (attention deficit skill)… it's why i can juggle so many balls.

(I can only juggle 2 real balls at one time).

All photos of Jude (with Dannie Raymond below) were taken in Vancouver, BC Canada. Like Jump for Joy! Featuring JUDE KUSNIERZ on Facebook
