The eve of my soujourn to Mexico, for the Oaxaca FilmFest has arrived and I think I am finally getting excited.
I guess it's all seemed too good to be true that something I created would be honored as an Official Selection by one of the premier film festivals in the world.
But after a very warm and touching pep talk from my dear friend and CEO, Jay Wommack, in front of our entire company today, in which he characterized me as a "great storyteller", I am energized and believing in myself again. Then comes an incredible Tweet from my uber enlightened 16-year old that states " …art is designed to make the artist feel personally addressed - it is a simple truth - or set of truths, that galvanizes a passion within the individual. And in doing so, immerses them into a community founded upon that same personal connection."
So I have that thought ringing in my synapses as i prepare to go into a community of artists who have a passion for telling stories.
A week of networking and workshops and mezcal and las festival de gastronomie await.
ARRIBA! ARRIBA! YEE HA!
