I taught myself how to grow old...

Most of the time I got nothing to say.

This should tell you everything you need to know about me...

This is my first film, Tale of the Toe, which placed 3rd in Audience Choice in the Des Moines 48 Hour Film Project.

I love reading and writing and making short films. I am currently working on two screenplays: One Feature and One that I hope to shoot as a Serial on YouTube. I am fortunate to have so many friends who are willing to help me, and I am grateful to them.

If you enjoy this LJ and my film, you should really check out my friend and creative partner Dave's blog at http://www.bileduct.com/blog

On June 7, 2005 I became a devotee of Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi aka Ammachi aka Amma.

Om nama sivaya.

Om Amriteshwaryai Namaha

"Everyone in the world should be able to sleep without fear, at least for one night. Everyone should be able to eat to his or her fill, at least for one day. There should be at least one day when hospitals see no one admitted due to violence. By doing selfless service for at least one day, everyone—from little children to the very elderly—should help raise money for the poor and needy—even if by making toys. It is Amma’s prayer that at least this small dream be realised."

"In reality, each one of us has Infinite Capacity, Power within us. We just need to move forward with optimistic faith. As we keep moving forward, the darkness will get dispelled- we will see the Path clearly. You have the strength, the Infinite Power within. Don't be discouraged. The beautiful lotus of divinity is within us. We can bring it out if we want- regardless of any thinking like "i'm helpless, i have so many negative qualities, etc etc...

"It is hard to love everyone equally. But we can at least try to not get angry with people. We may fail to cultivate good thoughts, but, again, get up and move forward!"

Women who could become desperate and yet remain strong...
who could become confused, and yet remain intelligent...
who could fight back and yet remain feminine.
The All Girl Kung Fu Army
Remember, you fight because you love yourself, not because you hate your opponent.
Dedicated to the three ideals of
Laughter, Love and Libido...

We are building a fighting force of extraordinary magnitude.
We forge our tradition in the spirit of our ancestors.
You have my gratitude.
