jenamalone It's amazing to get to be a shape shifter in this world. One moment a movie star walking a red carpet. A dirty haired traveler spacing out in an immigration line. A proud sister who tries to set good examples. A needy friend who just wants to cause some trouble. A celibate women trying to redefine her beauty in the world. A model that has to ensure hours of sitting and being fussed over. A human being hungry for a connection. An open heart listening to the universe for instruction. I'm blessed to get to live between definition and like a private eye disappear into so many different worlds. Oh and I like this photo. @oliviamalone shot it for @tidalmag it's nice to dress up and be girly :) texture edit by me 2d

jenamalone Tired shoulders now. A hundred temples along the way. An open vessel receiving spiritual showers. Finding a quiet place to lay. Joyful tears of transmission , a beginner tongue translating a holy place. I'll rest this journey down. It will be there for me. Greeting me with gratitude in my eternal day. 2d

jenamalone 7 hour layover in Taiwan ? No problem. All you need is a smile. The currency of the east. My taxi drove me around and showed me the funniest things while rocking out to Neil young and his favorite song " If your going to San Francisco " Simply the best. #nevergonnastop #adventurestillimoldandgrey 3d

  •   missyourmusk Maybe you'll never read this, but I do want to say, I hope you might rethink phrases like "smiles are the currency of the east"...it makes it sound like "the east" is some monolithic, idealistic culture when of course it is made up of many extremely diverse countries and people, as I'm sure you know well, having just gotten to explore some of those places for yourself. I'm Asian-American and I often hear people here stereotype Asia as a monolithic, idealized, "exotic" place. It's not usually malicious, but it's uninformed and still wrong. I love your instagram and adore your movies and interviews. You seem like a cool person who has an open mind and comes from a well-intentioned place. Which is why I wanted to say something when I read this, because I feel like you would want to be aware you were saying something that does stereotype Asia. I'm sure that wasn't your intention so I wanted to bring it to your attention. 2d

jenamalone A vision captured in Yangon and Bagan. Many blessings and offerings I'm bringing back with me. I've never felt so at peace and full of love. My first visit ever to Asia. I know it's truly just the beginning of a very beautiful friendship/journey/adventure. 🚣 3d

jenamalone I love this girl so much. When I come back to Yangon the first thing I'm doing is going to the market to find her and give her a giant hug 4d

jenamalone Meet my wild hearted guide for the day. 12 year old hustler and merchant working at the scott market in Yagon. Her father passed away last year and her mother is pregnant with child number 5. She doesn't go to school but lived as a nun ( a female monk) til she was 10. And then she started working at the market to help her mother earn a living . A good day she pulls in about 3 dollars American selling postcards and fans. Her English was better then most I've met. She learned it on the streets and from the amazing hustle she works on tourists. She was the funniest , smartest lady I met in all of Myanmar. My favorite of her saying were" it's no joke" "now tell me that again with a little bit of a smaller motor in your mouth " " I love justin Bieber but I think he is too old for me " "I don't like cops they never smile and they take all my money". We met and instantly fell for each other. We ran around the market causing trouble and trying clothes on. Without even asking she became my "guide" She showed me the best place for tea. Where to hop on a train . The place where all the dogs sleep at night. And where you can see the boys bathing in the river. I bought her noodles and soda and sweet tea even though she didn't want to take any money from me . At one point she threw her head back and laughed and said "I'm glad I met you on my slow day. It's now my fun day. And we will be friends" I held her bag of sellable goods as she wondered around taking pictures with my camera. I slipped all the money I had in it because I knew she would refuse any from me. At the end of the day she saw me off to the circle train and pulled a ring from her bag and put it in my pinkie finger. " a 500 kyat(50 cents) ring as my gift for you." And before I could hug her and tell her what this day had meant to me the train started to leave and just like that she hopped off like a pro and started skipping back to the market. Her name was Lapya won , which means full moon in Burmese.And there's no one else in the world id rather have spend my last day in Myanmar with. #loveasbigasthisgirlsheart #myhero 4d

jenamalone New moon celebration in Yangon at the Shwedagon pagoda. A beautiful downpour. Many offerings were layed out. Incense for fame and flowers for beauty and an umbrella for shade. I made no offering. I've received so many blessings on this trip I just stood with gratitude to be alive. Wanting nothing more. Wishing for nothing less. Happy glorious new moon !!! A beautiful time to manifest your truest desires. #wonderwhatablessingofshadebrings 5d

jenamalone So many children running wild at the temples and pagodas in Bagan. Sleeping, eating , begging ,playing. These are their playgrounds. Some trying to hustle money selling cheap postcards and drawings. Reminded me of when I was young and poor living in Lake Tahoe. Me and my friends use to run in the middle of the road and lay down so the tourists would have to drive around us , all the whole screaming "hit me , I need the money" hahah. Not a very constructive way to earn some loose change. I met these two girls who wanted to tell me the story of the pagoda, in Burmese. They said I could pay if I thought their story was good. And before my guide could fully translate the older one launched into an animated story. Her eyes came alive. Her arms proudly pointing to things she thought was important for me to see. Her spine erect, all of a sudden so full of purpose and pride. Ofcourse I didn't understand a word. But I could see how this simple act of storytelling enlivened her. Inspired her. After the story was done she just sat down with her family and looked completely uninterested in what money was exchanged. The young one bargained with me and I couldn't help but give them whatever they asked for. It's such a beautiful thing when you have so little to be able to have a voice when your young. To have a passion that drives you. I took this photo after while the older girls eyes was impatiently looking out to see who she could tell her story to next. I couldn't help but see a little bit of a younger verison of me in her. Hungry for the doing, the creating and bored with the in between. 5d

jenamalone Don't worry , a worldly death comes to all holy things. And what's left will keep singing the prayers of all that came before. Flesh and wood and leaves and soot. All temporal things. What I'm learning is stone lasts forever. Thank you Bagan. For letting me wonder your holy relics , desecrating in the sun. 5d

jenamalone I have my fathers nose and my mothers eyes. And my grandmothers cheekbones and my sisters courage. I have my uncles long legs and my grandfathers people skills. I have skin like my irish ancestors. But standing today in an abandoned temple naked as the day is long I realized I am more then I've ever been. Because it's not about where your from or what skin your born in. It's about what you believe. It's about what you create. 6d

jenamalone Climbing to the top of a12,000 year old pagoda. I meditated with my guide in the darkness before first light. Slowly I hear them, the other fellow travelers. Carrying their zoo mentality , camera armed and cocksure. A prize fighter claiming the right to view her, better. Like all her wild beauty could be contained in a single frame. The sounds of roosters and a monk saying the morning prayer on a radio in the distance gives way to shutter clicks and conversation. I ,in turn ,have my own conversation with the dawn . With my eyes closed. I imagine we are on a first date. And when I receive her I am blinded by her beauty. But all subtle strength turns shy when a camera is placed between the heart and the minds eye. I whisper to her "I'll keep my eyes closed till your ready, I want you to feel safe" she keeps quiet until I feel her , the warmest light on my face. No words now. Just two lights meeting each other. A metaphysical form of first base. ##truelove 6d
  •   potassio Jena I truly love you, believe me, BUT .. there are no 12,000 year old pagodas on planet Earth... maybe 1200 (the oldest one, according to a legend, is the Shwedagon Pagoda .. 2500 year old) .. but I love you!

jenamalone So much love for this beautiful woman. She was my guide to the entire Inle Lake region for the past 6 days. We trekked together , broke bread together , talked about our hopes and dreams and the hidden language of culture and what it means to be a woman no matter where you call your home. She taught me how to dress as a woman from Myanmar ( she picked out the shirt I'm wearing ) and I taught her about celibacy and what it means if your a woman and not a monk. We shared so much laughter. I believe that when I return our girlish expressions of pure joy will still be reverberating around the water of the lake. Thank you Lynn. You are simply the best. 7d
