Lately I’ve been finding that cool coincidences keep happening and they end up inspiring me in one or more of my pursuits. Is it the universe working with me? Who knows… but I like it. If you remember, I recently wrote about the photographer Ernst Haas, who I had just discovered through a friend of a friend’s website. I really loved his work and especially his philosophy on art, photography and life in general. Well, after I posted about him, our close friend Mark wrote me and told me he’s currently working with Haas’s children to put together a documentary film about him. Crazy right?
And then last week, I went to the nursing home on Tuesday (as I do most every Tuesday), and there was a new woman volunteering there. We introduced ourselves and got to chatting and low and behold, it turns out she (her name is Beck) and her husband are in the film business too. In fact, we saw a film her husband (Larry Fessenden) produced out in LA when we had our world premiere for Hello Lonesome and I totally loved it! It’s called Bitter Feast – an awesomely entertaining foodie/horror film and my favorite film I saw at the LA Film Festival (besides Hello Lonesome of course). 🙂 Adam and Larry also spoke on a panel together at the Woodstock Film Festival back in October. Small world.
Amazing right? I love meeting creative awesome people.
Anyway, here is my photo from yesterday:

I also have to tell you about a delightful cheese plate I put together last night – but I have to run so I’ll write about it tomorrow! Stay dry!
