Quick note on 27 Oct 2015

One of the things I am going to start doing here, is curate good reading material for you guys. There is so ,much information out there that it can be hard to filter through the noise.  One website you should be going to is Brainpickings.org. It is one of the smartest websites on the web, and is especially great for those who are in the creative fields and for those who look for a better and a better way of living.  It is such a good site that the Library of Congress archives Brainpickings’ post due to their cultural relevance.

As far as the film development goes I finished up the book Walking Prey by Holly Austin Smith and am about to finish up The Untold War by Nancy Sherman.  I also started reading a PDF by Shared Hope International on mirror sex trafficking. My goal is to get through that and finish 3 other books. One of the good things about my research is that now that I am working with the Veteran’s Mental Health Advocacy Council, all these books help me be a much better advocate because I am becoming much more knowledgeable on PTSD and Moral Injury.

I also have to find some time to paint; which is a time management issue. Which we all have.
