I am in two minds where to live. I arrived back this morning to pissing rain, and immediately went to bed. I met a charming man on the plane and talked for most of the journey. However this did not make up for my missing Los Angeles almost immediately. This week was busy, I was exhausted, after my film The gun the cake and the butterfly, won Bel Air's Best Edit and Best film chosen by an audience my head can just about fit through the bedroom door, despite gracing the cover of LAHollywood Weekly. I love Los Angeles and their ability to open a box rather than close it. I opened LA Femme with it, the people who put on these festivals are creative and adore independent film. (I am so happy the I was nominated as best Trailer and the New Media Film Festival, best art film NYCIFF, best art film at Ischia Global Film Festival, The Lina Wertmuller Prize, nominated as best female director Burbank International Film Festival, Bel Air Film Festival best edit and best film chosen by an audience) So much is is due to the people I employed to help me, a family of creative people. Justine Glenton should win best actress, Boris Ristic's music has been much congratulated, editing and art direction by Behsat Ahment, Roby Meola, Hector Abaunza, cinema photographers, Jack English, Alexander Webster, Fredrik Andersson, Boris Ristic, and George Blodwell and Tim Willis. So much help, love and enthusiasm. I am thrilled.
My film is contradictory but I believe what Julie Burchill says, "Consistency is the hobgoblin of the small mind" I love to show madness, my madness and sanity altogether. Oscar Wilde said that "It showed a lack of imagination"

Anyway I shall follow the new ideas of selling my artwork with the house and have asked the agents to mention my Car painted by Inkie the Graffitti artist. A new life is always funny, and I wish to do as much as possible with it. Someone else can enjoy the views from my bedroom and perhaps my artwork. I always love being a follower of fashion.
In the meantime I am learning how to sell a film and what it means to my purse.
