Synopsis of “This is Dirt” by Amber Jensen:

Why dirt?

Dirt is what we move in, live in and what we share.


I think of dirt as life, love and the experiences that we often feel like no one else understands.


In sharing down in the dirt struggles, the process of accepting incompleteness, and even sharing the dirt that often gets hidden or swept under the rug, my aim is contribution.


Part of being human is to experience ourselves as human amongst other humans doing what humans do.


Without real sharing, we’re all just machines, auto-piloting around – staring at our phones, swiping through life – hoping to connect with something real and honest.


When I see someone in their dirt – the smile in their eyes – and hear the laughter in the wind, it’s then that I feel the tug at my heart, the tether of connection and I experience being human with them.


This is dirt.
