with open arms

they stand ~ waiting

to embrace

your passion


your vision.

I can hear their voices

whispering… from afar…

can you hear them?

your dreams are speaking…..

Note: Jordan left for the West Coast yesterday… with a car full of stuff and two friends.  Their final destination is Los Angeles, however, they are stopping along the way to hike in Colorado – Rocky Mountain National Park.  Jordan will be living and working in LA.  He was accepted into the AFI’s (American Film Institute) Summer Internship Program, which will begin June 15th.  Until then, he has a job – working as an assistant on a film set. (The director is an alumnus of Jordan’s school.) & one more thing… since he will be an AFI intern, he will working on this year’s “AFI Lifetime Achievement Award” program which will be nationally televised in June.  Apparently some dude by the name of Steve Martin is the honoree!!  Geez the kid might as well be attending/working the Academy Awards!!  To quote my son ~ “Mom, they are renting me a tux!”

“I must let go of whom I hold most dear.”

Jordan is the one on the right – going for the Robert De Niro look from the movie “The Deer Hunter”.  The words are all him, as well.


It is official!  My son has been accepted in the American Film’s Institute’s (AFI) Summer Internship this summer!!! In Los Angeles……….across the country…….in a car…….

I could not be more proud.

more squirrelly thoughts



the past is finite

the future is infinite


the present – it just is……


all in a manner of speaking



inspired by a ‘past’ movie night with my boys – X-Men: Days of Future Past



(ps:  I enjoyed the movie very much, although I did need a chaser of Tylenol afterward.

Thank heavens I have Marvel geeks for sons!!)

Updates from the set:

I woke up this morning to a sweet surprise from my son – an action shot of my boy directing a movie!

One more tidbit – Apparently he has not shaved in 2 weeks – he has named ‘it’ an editing beard.  Humph, he promises a selfie ……..

I just gotta see this …

visions and dreams inspired

sweat and sleepless nights

dues must be paid

patiently he stands waiting

Oscar wearing one of Jordan’s favorite t-shirts.


Currently the young man is knee-deep in film footage.  He has begun editing his film project for school.  From what I have been told, there is much to do. This is the big one – he conceived the story, wrote the script, casting, directing, lighting, sound, editing…..

I believe my future Scorsese is having a wonderful time. 



Text updates from the set.
