printing this out and hanging it over my face.
“I want to try not to repeat myself. But then I seem to do it continuously in my films. It’s not something I make any effort to do. I just want to make films that are personal, but interesting to an audience. I feel I get criticized for style over substance, and for details that get in the way of the characters. But every decision I make is how to bring those characters forward.”

So I went to Goodwill today and
I’ll start right away.
But nah, this is for real how I work out.

For Rainy Days…
Vintage Butterfly Umbrella, $30 Artist Gifts
Why wait for May to say Spring has sprung? This adorable umbrella brings light to my rainy days. Designed with a unique, vintage collage from artist Heather Myers, it stands out above the rest. No better way to stay dry than with a little reminder saying “No worries, Spring is on it’s way!”
Kindle Fire HD, $200 Amazon
I call this my pocketbook computer because it’s got just about everything and it’s so compact! I use it for email, Facebook, Pandora, writing notes, and of course, what the Kindle was made for, books. The best part is you can download free samples of books if you’re not sure which novel is your cup of tea, and all books and magazines are stored for free in the cloud. If you’re admittedly not much of a bookworm, that’s where the 16GB memory for movies, pictures, and loads of apps comes in. Synchronizes easily with your desk or laptop when you’re traveling or on the go, and the battery life is much longer than that of an iPad or other tablets.
(note: This isn’t the Kindle I have and always rave about, but it’s two models up (I still say they should’ve called this the Re-Kindle Fire but whatevs). The one I have is the 7” Kindle Fire (1st generation) which unfortunately they no longer sell on Amazon but let me tell you, it gets the job done.)
