Just wanted to post a message regarding the 1st Vision Maker Media Media For Change event in Santa Fe, NM. I have to say that I really enjoyed the program and it was good to see old friends and meet new ones. I found this event to particularlly interesting because of how media is changing. It's no longer about just delivering a completed movie, but now it's about  how to extend the life of that program by using new media, such as the internet, apps, online gaming, etc.

The training was a wonderful opportunity for bringing educators and film & media makers together to learn from each other's worldview on education outreach through film/media. For the morning session, dividing each group up into professional areas was a positive move. As an educator it was good to see the conversations targeting various levels of education (primary, secondary, hirer education,...). It allowed all participants to gain new knowledge of how each level weaves among the other levels, or how each level is distinctively seperate (in some cases).

Sitting in the cafe of The Magnolia hotel in downtown Denver, Colorado, this morning, a slice of gratitude shined on me. I was chewing on my strawberry cream cheese bagel—completely off my diet—reading a poem. It dawned on me that I am where I was intended to be and I could trace my footsteps back to a pink flyer I saw on the San Juan College campus in Farmington, New Mexico.
