Packing Light is NOT my Style!
This is going to be so short (and a day late) because I somehow deleted everything I wrote for October. Oh well. Boo. Must be the spooks.
As ya know I returned from a literary month in Paris. Extraordinary. Got so much research done for my next film (more on that in a second) and book(s?).
Pit stop New York on the way home. Gosh, haven’t been there since before the Pandemic! Was so good to be there. Went to the premier of Six, the Musical (which we had tickets to before this nonsense started). It is amazing and those girls can sing! Everyone wore a mask inside. Vaccination cards shown!Had lunch with a dear author friend who inspired me to turn my sizzle reel (been shopping around to be my next doc/movie) into a short film. The next couple weeks will be jamming as I get it in shape to submit to festivals. I love it and its sexy! Look out.

Not a Suspect
Very much enjoyed The Women of Troy by Pat Barker. After the burning of Troy what is to become of the women? Fresh, captivating, heartbreaking. Slavery and rebellion. Another surprising read was Couple Found Slain: After a Family Murder by Mikita Brottman. At first it seems like another pair of shit parents murdered by their mentally disturbed kid. And it is that, but the story really gets good after the kid is sent to a mental hospital. He has currently been there for the past 27 ish years. A scathing indictment of how we push aside, with very little regulation certain elements of our society, and it isn’t about rehabilitation, and it isn’t about justice and there is very little measure sticks to ensure fairness.
