Yard News

It didn't rain for 24 hours! I mowed! I'm particularly happy to scalp the grasses in the glade to give the mosses a chance.

In documentary news, the 30 minute cut film documenting how Christine's family handled the her/our transition has been part of the PBS Online Film Festival (Read about it and watch it here http://www.pbs.org/filmfestival/2018-festival/ties-bind/). While the film didn't win, the Producer and Editor of American Experience ranked it #2 and the FRONTLINE writer, producer and editor ranked it #1. Christine was so delighted. The process has had a great deal of pain for her -- revisiting over and over painful episodes, composing music for the film and having her sister dismiss it (some of her music did make it into the film, though), providing critical feedback and editing advice and not having her technical contributions recognized.... And finally, Christine did the original edit from the hour long film to the 30 min PBS film. Having the FRONTLINE editor approve of the film is wonderful for her. I'm so proud.
