invincible summers

in the middle of winter I at last discovered that there was in me an invincible summer. (albert camus)

i’m home November 29, 2007

i’m home and it feels good. leaving home for a weekend or week is one thing…but 7 weeks is a whole other beast. some of you know i work in the film industry and occasionally work will take me out of town for weeks or months at a time. and i rarely post about my experiences on set because they usually involve those that we read about too much. however, i will say it was a pleasure working with hawkeye. overall, it was a long 7 weeks and i returned feeling exhausted and broken. during the second week i injured my back and sciatic nerve. over the last two weeks of filming i battled “whatever flu virus has been going around” and it’s still lingering…thanks in part to the ever-changing weather. i’ll leave it at that for now.

decided to return with some headlines that caught my attention over the last month or so. hoping to follow up on a few of them.
