Employment!

be the matchHurray! I started work at http://bethematch.org/ this week. I invite you to check out the website to see the work being done in research- and with families, patients and donors to link people in need of transplant for blood cancers/ disorders.

I am thrilled…and also intend to continue fiddling about with photography too. My new header is from a trip to Hawk’s View Vineyards in Wisconsin at the end of May.

Hope you are all well!! 🙂

And The Best Picture Is: “The Broken Circle Breakdown”

circleAfter an impromptu ‘film conversation’ with Herman of http://hopedog.wordpress.com/ I had the immense good fortune of watching The Broken Circle Breakdown.

Here is what I learned from Herman before viewing: “The 39th annual Cesar Awards, France’s big film prizes handed out by the Academy of Cinema Technical Arts and Sciences, began yesterday evening at 9 p.m. at the historic Chatelet Theatre: Félix Van Groeningen’s Flemish romance drama “The Broken Circle Breakdown,” which is nominated for an Oscar, won best foreign film…”

This film plumbs the depths of relationships, spirituality, music, medicine and science unlike anything I have ever seen. I will not say any more, because I could cry and rant and sing as the characters do. Do not be fooled by the movie poster. Go to a theater, download from Amazon; do whatever you need to do to watch this amazing film…

Make-A-Wish, Mashable and Bat Kid

No doubt many of you have seen the efforts of Mashable to spread the word about Miles, the little boy with leukemia, who’s express desire to the  Make-A-Wish Foundation was to be Batkid for a day. This morning I saw, to my absolute delight, the MOVIE TRAILER, made by YouTube user SandD2012648x444Where there may be darkness, shine light- and hope!
