Goodbye my little blog

Greetings! Long-time no write. I’ve decided to stop blogging on this blog.  I like tying up loose ends, so this is my goodbye post.  I think of it as a bookend to close out this blogging phase of my life. When my children are grown up and read their mother’s old blog, there will be a distinct start and finish. In the beginning it was fun and gave me energy, in the middle I floundered and felt uninspired, then I came back for a while out of sheer determination not to give up. But in the end I realize that I’m not giving anything up. It was fun while it served its purpose. I wrote what I needed to and learned a lot along the way.

All my best, Janine.

Project: Ice

Showing on Monday September 15, 2014 at UCLA

Tomorrow night I will be at the Awareness Film Festival in Los Angeles.  This festival shows films “that do more than entertain….bringing awareness to some of the world’s pressing issues.” I’ll be there to see a film directed and produced by my cousin.  His film is called PROJECT: ICE and it has received this years’ Award of Excellence from the Canadian International Film Festival.

It is set in the Great Lakes region and “views North America’s fresh water inland ocean through the prism of ice, from the crossroads of history, science and climate change.” Sounds interesting to me. I love history and I love to learn everything I can about the environment in which we live. With all the recognition it has received, I’m sure it will be entertaining as well.

So if you live in the Los Angeles area, and this is your sort of thing, then head on over to UCLA’s James Bridges Theater by 8pm tomorrow night (Sept. 15).  Located at 1409 Melnitz Hall, Los Angeles, CA 90095. Parking is in the Lot 3 visitors lot. Pay by space # at the theater.
