Sharing the Stoke with Tiffany Oliser of Jax Surf & Paddle
It was great to talk story with Tiffany about life, surfing and the building of her company. What really resonated with me is her love of surfing and how important it is to share that stoke with others. Surfing is magic, and medicine, and I appreciate all she does to build community and share that with others. It truly does make the world a better place. Introducing people to surfing is important, because even if they don't become surfers you can't helped but be changed for the better by spending time out in the ocean and the natural world. You can find out more about what she does at Jax Surf & Paddle by clicking here or go visit the shop on Atlantic Blvd in Neptune Beach, just a couple blocks off the ocean. Thanks to Nicholas Edward Williams providing sounds for the show. He makes such good music which you can find here. I highly recommend buying his album and going to see him in concert. If you live in north Florida you should see him, or anybody really, at Blue Jay Listening Room in south Jax Beach. Cara, the owner, has created a wonder musical experience there. She has excellent taste in music so you don't even have to worry about who is playing, just go and treat yourself to a fantastic evening of music.

Create Anyway with Amanda Holloway
So thankful and excited to have the lovely and talented Amanda Holloway on the show. She is one of the most creative people I know, producing across a wide range of platforms and activities. I love how she not only creates, but teaches what she is passionate about, as a middle school art teacher (check out here website here) and a yoga teacher (she teaches at Alma Yoga in Jacksonville Beach). Thank you Amanda for pushing the knowledge forward and sharing what you love with the world. It's important. You can find her on Instagram at @createanyway, and next week Thursday December 5th at the Atlantic Beach Artisan's Faire which will be at 5-9pm at the Adele Grange Cultural Center (and I'll be there too:) Thanks again to Dread Clampitt for letting me use their music on the show. They are super talented and incredibly nice. You should go to the Suwannee Roots Revival and Suwannee Spring Reunion festivals out at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park as they are usually in the lineup of wonderful musicians those festivals feature. Take you family and/ or go with some friends you will not be disappointed.

Being Who You Are, and Keeping Good Company- Designer Scott Whatley
Scott Whatley is many things: a dad, artist, surfer and musician. Recently we sat down on his back porch to talk about his journey and path to accepting and embracing who he is (a talented and inspired creative) and the importance of cultivating a good community in which to live. I appreciate Scott for sharing his story, and next time you are looking for some quality design, video or content production click here to visit Scott's website or find him on Instagram at @scottwhatleycreative. And if you are running in the Donna marathon this year and come across a drummer throwing down some sweet beats on 1rst Street in Neptune, that would be the talented Mr. Whatley (and me on guitar:) Over-the-Counter Culture  is created and produced by Jonathan Lynn.

Eddie Pitts of 911 Surf Report
Super excited to have Eddie Pitts on the show today. Eddie is a long time North Florida surfer who has traveled the world and worked through a few careers while riding countless waves, which gives him more than a few stories to tell. He is the man behind the popular surf report 911surfreport.com  which provides beautiful photographs of the surf and surfers at Hanna Park in Jacksonville, Florida on the daily. He's also a musician, family man and pretty much the nicest guy in the world. I thoroughly enjoyed talking story with him on my front porch. Special; thanks to the excellent band Dread Clampitt for letting me use their tunes on the show. They're out of the Florida panhandle and are fantastic songwriters and top shelf musicians. Most importantly, they are super kind and generous people. If you get the chance to get out to the Suwannee Roots Revival or Suwannee Spring Reunion festivals out at the Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park the fellas from Dread are often on the bill and that is a show not to be missed.    Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the show.

From Tennessee to NYC to India- Yoga Teacher Ryann Tillman
Ryann is one of my favorite yoga teachers due to her knowledge, skills and patience to answer my many questions. She teaches at Bella Vida Yoga, Sawgrass Country Club, and internationally with Lotus Retreats. We sat on the front porch on a cool November evening in northeast Florida and talked about life and yoga, volleyball and personal growth. If you're looking for a good teacher in Jacksonville Beach or thinking about a yoga retreat abroad, look her up.

Best Friends and Surf Style Bandits- Kristen Huth & Inna Bell
These wonderful people are besties and the subjects of a couple of my recent prints. I got to know Kristen as one of my yoga teachers in Atlantic Beach, FL who changed my life by suggesting that I do a couple sun salutations and a few minutes of meditation when I first wake up in the morning. Funny how a small suggestion can have such a big impact on life:) Well, it did, and partially as a thank you, and partially as a way to highlight role models for my daughters, I decided to make a print of Kristen enjoying our favorite pastime of surfing. i asked her if she had any other friends who would be a good subject for a print, and she recommended her fellow style bandit and good buddy Inna Bell. I have long wanted to couple my prints with a corresponding  recorded conversation, and these two seemed the perfect subjects. So, in mid October we al met with friends, kids and dogs to have a chat. Aside from Inna and Kristen, also on this episode you'll hear talented textile artist, and all around good human, Clair Devoe. If you like please subscribe to the show and feel free to check out all the goings on with Inna (@innabell_realtor), Kristen (kristen_huth), Claire (devoeofficial) and myself (@mrlynnprints & @duttonisland) on Instagram. Also of note, I'm publishing a book soon called Fish & Bird that I am super pumped about. We're launching a Kickstarter to fund the printing and I'm over the moon about the whole experience. Stay tuned for more details....
