and on the passing of another friend...

and oh,
how we could've been great friends as adults.
but i just know that we picked on each other as kids
seventh grade pranks in uniform
tenth grade flirts
then loosing touch.
is this the fate of all those friends
the ones who i think i'll some day reconnect with
the ones who i wonder whatever happened to them
only to find out it's too late?

then remembering the others before
and family
and all that's left is remembering
and that was that.

I know that I left you for dead.

Don't give up so soon.

And so she began to cut and sew again.
She's putting things in her suitcase
and reading old writings.
She's still missing those friends,
wondering where they've all gone.

A flat buffalo lays upon a pile of scraps.
A cat lays on a stack of bags.

Put her in your dreams, your memories
that's all that's left.

March morning, things growing.

Hello blog.

It's been a while. I've been bustling about the Echo Park Film Center, and keeping very up to date with that blog while slightly ignoring my own. I plan to update more often in the near future. Stories, photos, maybe even films. There's inspiration stirring in the air.

This morning I hopped on the EPFC Filmmobile for my first class. We went to Venice YouthBuild and taught seven students, including their teacher, how to edit the video they shot all week. They'll be finishing up those projects tomorrow. It really is an amazing thing that we have going on here. The bus is beautiful, runs on recycled vegetable oil, and goes all over teaching people how to make films and showing great films too. Waking up to the early Los Angeles sunlight and heading out to teach video making is quite unlike any other experience. The directors envision a whole brigade of buses and I'm completely into the idea. We can start a veg powered filmmobile revolution!
