Good Mondays don't come around very often, but

when they do, they're very, very good.

Yes, yes, I’ve been neglecting the blog.  This one at least.  I’ve got three others. 

As some of you already know, I got rear-ended on my way to San Diego on December 30th and I’ve been carless for a month.  So I’ve been preoccupied dealing with the aftermath and a bit more self-absorbed than usual. If that’s even possible.  That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

I was able to buy a car yesterday and now that things can go back to normal, I can fake a sunny disposition and pull it off.  I even said a cheery good morning to a couple of coworkers today.  They turned to each other and asked “what the hell is wrong with her?” My day improved exponentially when I received an email from The Boyle Heights Latina Independent Film Extravaganza (BHLIFE) letting me know that Heartbreak in 209 Cuts was selected for this year’s festival.  That made me skip down the hall while singing “I’m walking on sunshine.”  I’m not joking.  I really wanted to get in this festival.  It’s for, by and about minority women, grassroots, in a great East Side community and really cool.  It’s the type of festival I like because you really get to meet wonderful filmmakers and make relationships that last.

The festival takes place from March 2nd-4th.  I will post my film’s screening date and time when they let us know the schedule.  For more info on BHLIFE click HERE. 

After a bad December and a worse way to end the year, I can honestly say I feel optimistic. For now.  Ok, who are we kidding? It won’t last. But I’ll enjoy it for now.  But not too much for fear of tempting the gods that hate me. Ugh.
