The longer I am in here the more I begin to realize how foolish I have been living. Its easy to get lost in all the of ‘what ifs’ and I have spent far too much time thinking about events that I cannot change. The past is the past.

fade to black.


Following a few minor setbacks with my bank card and visa I find myself on a bus, it’s evening going into night and my main objective is to get to Puerto Escondido, 13-15 hours, 2 buses, first stop Acapulco. Travelling via bus at night was ‘not recommended’ in my pre-travel research, I will have to trust in a divine force that wants me to get to my destination, the hardest part of doing something is getting past your own self doubts, fear in other words will have to take the back seat, better yet the trunk.

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
