During the last part of my wife’s illness I dropped all my writing and filmmaking projects. I want to get back to them now. It isn’t just that I want to work on them; I feel that I need something to focus on now that she is gone. Retrospective One project I want to do… Read Article →

Although “The Barrier” is still a work in progress, I have started to think about other transportation planning stories. I have two ideas that I want to consider. Do either of them appeal to you?

I created a new version of “The Barrier” this week and posted it to YouTube. I made several changes to the first two scenes. Next week I plan to move on to a new project, or do some of the house work I’ve neglected. Over the last week, I finished the first scene of “The… Read Article →
