Creativity in the midst of Mothering

Been having major guilt about not posting more. There are so many ideas floating around in my head..too many ideas, too little time..

I am done with the edit of my video interview with Nagraj Manjule the Director of Fandry. I am excited about it, Nagraj is a an unaffected, honest, authentic human being who is an excellent story teller. I haven’t released it yet because I am trying trying to figure out how to do a few graphicky things. I’m watching tutorials on AdobeTV and Lynda. Subtitling it in the midst of the rest of my life has made progress slow, I have been busy with mothering, house holding and DMV type errands…unavoidable drudgery in every artistic life 😉 Also, I got roped into shooting the Easter performance at my son’s preschool..he was playing Jesus, a sleepy one at could I not?

Lately I have become a Twitter fiend. I am amazed at the access Twitter offers, a truly equal opportunity platform for connecting with people/companies/groups for all my varied interests. I am very excited about a recent connection I made with a Director whose work I admire tremendously. I will post a story about the mystery actor/director soon. Hint: He went to FTII in 1983..guesses? 🙂

A piece I wrote on a film at IFFLA will be published in a respected publication in India next week!! This has given me some validation in this journey of doing what ‘I am drawn to’, with no real blue print. I am creating my path as I go along. I’ve heard countless times, don’t set out to be successful, set out to do what you enjoy and what you are passionate about and success will follow! So here I am, making it up as I go along, thank you for joining me on this journey…AND being patient..:P
