It seems that when I drop in to my old timeline (and I’m not talking about Facebook!) I’m always apologizing because it’s been too long since I’ve checked in. Heavenly time is measured differently than Earth time, and in the wag of a tail, weeks have passed since I’ve communicated with my earthbound pack.
No excuses…just a different pawspective…
As always, I’ve been delighting in watching over my family. Timmy Elijah is growing so quickly and he is
a constant source of laughs. His gangly legs and puppy exuberance are an uncoordinated sight to see! I’m beyond elated that Timmy E has been such a healing presence for mama and has restored her smile.
Wilbur is happier than ever with new energy in the house, although he still misses his big brother. And Bella is…. well, her dog-like kitty self even as she’s gone through cancer surgery and recovery.
I continue to be inspired by the strength and accomplishments of my family and friends. For the past couple of months, mama has been helping promote a new documentary, Sexy Baby, co-directed by two extraordinary and inspirational women, Jill Bauer and Ronna Gradus. These ex-journalists had a nugget of an idea for a feature documentary, although neither had made a movie before.
Through their drive, spunk and tenacity, Jill and Ronna attracted executive producer Abigail Disney (yes, of the famed Disney family) and created a documentary that has the film festival circuit buzzing. Sexy Baby premiered at Tribeca Film Festival and Jane Rosenthal, co-creator of TFF, introduced the film. Three screenings were planned, but they sold out so quickly that a 4th was added. And, my personal hero, Michael Moore — icon to all documentarians — attended the final Tribeca screening.
I am deeply inspired by Jill and Ronna. Their motivation and chutzpah , plus a hefty dose of perkiness, aided in getting their dream realized. As my loyal readers know, I dig perkiness and spunk and these ladies have confirmed that going for your dreams with abandon makes them come true. My philosophy has always been that wagginess (sister to spunkiness and perkiness) is a huge asset in life and in business.
Look for my review of Sexy Baby later this week. (Spoiler alert: it’s an absolute must-see film for our times!)
Who’s inspiring you this week?
