OK, so I had such a great time on my second trip to Afghanistan that is will be hard to describe, but I will try.  On this trip we not only spent time in Kabul but also had the opportunity to travel to Mazar-i-Sharif.    Mazar-i-Sharif is a short but somewhat treacherous flight on Kam Air (an Afghanistan airline) over the snowy mountains of Afghanistan.  Wendy joined me on this adventure and we both got to travel with ama...

Can’t believe I’m getting the chance to go back to Afghanistan this year. It was totally unexpected but Women for Afghan Women (WAW) has asked us to help create a short video showing their work and the progress women have made in the last 10 years. I talk about WAW all the time but for those who don’t know, Women for Afghan Women is an amazing organization that provides life saving services to women, families and children...

After months of planning, our play had its first professional reading in Los Angeles on Friday night.   We flew our playwright, Marsha Norman and director, Lear deBessonet in from New York and they spent a week working on the play with our SAG cast.   We are pleased to say that we had a full house and the reading went exceptionally well.    The audience also had the chance to ask Marsha and Lear questions about the play i...

The saying goes that “timing is everything” and that was certainly true about the premiere of our film about humanitarians entitled “we need to be many”.  As luck would have it, we were just finishing up the film when Peninah Nthenya Musyimi contacted us to say she was coming to Los Angeles for a three-day visit.   Peninah lives in Nairobi, Kenya and is the founder of a girl’s empowerment program called Safe Spaces.  We h...

Lesson to self, when you travel for 4 months with three people all brandishing cameras, it will take you much longer than you thought to look through all the photos.  This holiday period is the perfect time to reflect on everything we’ve experienced and start to organize the thousands of photos we now possess.   In addition to the photos we captured, some of which we are proud to say are pretty good, there are great shots...

Amazing how time flies!  It’s seems like only yesterday when we first met Kathy Eldon at a United Nations’ luncheon and was invited to join her program.  Over a year has passed and it’s time to renew our membership and participation with her Creative Visions Foundation.  Kathy and her daughter Amy have dedicated their lives to keeping the memory of Dan Eldon (son and brother) alive by inspiring and helping artists create...

We've been looking forward to going to Burundi for months and we are finally here!  The main reason for all the excitement was that we got to see and spend time with Michelle Carter (the country director) from CARE.  We met her about a year ago in Los Angeles and knew it would be imperative to our project to go to Burundi to see all the great work she and her group are doing there.  That's me with Michelle (in blue) and G...

Well we made it through India!   Here we are meeting with members of a grassroots organization located in the Utter Pradesh region.  We flew from New Delhi to Lucknow and then endured a 5 hr van ride to reach them.  I suppose I went to India with a predisposed idea of what it would look, sound and smell like.  I was not prepared.  The level of poverty that exists was simply overwhelming and all encompassing.  It would be...
