Willow Jon and The Brave Little Toaster take to the road for a month long west coast tour of gratitude on this delightfully insightful, wonderfully imaginative, and simply playful social media adventure; FromToast2Toast.A huge thanks to everyone we met along the way, who gave us rides, fed us, played music and danced with us, partied with us, and shared their lives and conversation with us. #Fromtoast2toast
Willow Jon. World Traveler. Dancer. Gonzo Journalist. Spiritual Explorer.
My name is Willow Jon Collamer and I'm on a journey of fearless self discovery. I play music, travel the world, make films, and have bad ass adventures. It is my desire to challenge the Status Quo and inspire courage in the hearts and minds of the people. Courage to discover our true self. A self that grows and evolves with each new experience.
I challenge you all to get up, reach inside yourself, dig around and find that spark of love, that part of yourself that yearns to be free, that begs to be noticed, that screams to feel something, anything.... and begin to be silent and listen.
I am Willow Jon Collamer and this is Willow Jon Slept Here
I don’t wake up every morning going, “Oh yeah, I’m going to meditate I’m so happy!” But every time I spend a few minutes to quiet my mind, concentrate on breathing, and instill positive vibrations and intentions for the day, I always feel better. My conscious conversations with my spirit started when I was a kid; at night I would say, “Hello Spirit, I would like to know more about you, would you please connect with me and share your energy and awareness so that I may rise to my full potential in life. It too a few years of asking every night and then I started having lucid dreams, astral projections, and other mystical experiences and I’ve never looked back.
This is the awesomely humorous, poignant, and heartwarming story of a skateboarding vacuum cleaner named TIBBS (Together Interconnected Between Beautiful Stars) and his sidekick Willow Jon adventuring around the world together talking to people about making a cleaner better world.
On this southern Caribbean adventure I find myself in Guadeloupe, France camping on the beaches with the local Rastafarian’s, sailors, ex patriots, and thugs, exploring active sulfuric volcanoes, cliff jumping, fishing, swimming in the turquoise waters and hitching around talking with people about living life to the fullest with grace, love, and compassion.
Willow Jon loves a challenge and an adventure so when Discovery channel offered him a role on a new survival show called, “Tethered” let’s just say he jumped at the opportunity. This time Willow Jon finds himself pushed beyond his breaking point as he is physically tethered to hard headed Navy vet Keith Barton with a six foot chain to see if they can survive a 10 day 50 mile trek through Panama’s deadly jungles, shark infested waters, and relentless heat, with only a machete, a flint, and a pot. In this survival show splitting up is not an option.
Willow Jon continues his world adventures with a trip to South America where his curiosity, enthusiasm, and gigantic appetite for adventure are even bigger than ever. Animals, smiles, music, butterflies, pristine beaches, laughter and more. What else could your ask for?
Paul Armstrong and I met on one of my motorcycle trips up the 101 when I stopped in at, “The Frog and Peace” pub in San Louis Obispo for a bit of the old dancing and Malarky. It was then I was invited to come to Morro Bay to live aboard his 40 ft sailboat, “The Brier Island.” For six months I lived among the fisherman, the honking sea lions, salted sea creatures, and birds of prey. One evening we paddled over the black water to The Lady Washington Tall Ship most well known for playing the HMS Interceptor in the “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and I rocked and I rolled my way up the coast to San Francisco.
Nate Wright and I drove from Los Angeles to New York City, through lightening storms, sleeping in truck stops, eating BBQ, playing music with all kinds of people, and talking to the locals about traveling and happiness. This is a preview of our adventure.
A music video for “Third Person.” It’s about how we have so many parts to our personalities, bodies, minds, and spirits. Willow Jon river rafts, laughs, dances, plays music, makes friends with everyone including mischievous little monkeys, swims in a volcanic mud bath and continues his world wide tour of joy through Columbia and Ecuador. Enjoy!
