A Few Updates

The past week has been a tough one. I find it hard to write when I don't have much positive to express, so I typically write privately. It's something I have been doing for years. But the tough times teach us lessons as well, and I think carrying on, or writing anyway, is important.

Last Saturday, I finally caved and went to the doctor to figure out why I was coughing so much. As it turns out, I have bronchitis. Since then, I have been a bit angry about being sick so much. For a while I tried to push through it. Then on Monday, I called in sick and have been in bed almost every moment since then. Today was the first day I have been back to work. And not a moment has gone by that I haven't appreciated our sick leave policy. I ended up working only a half day today, and am thankful I have the opportunity to rest and coworkers who support me there.

Tomorrow, I leave for South Carolina for a funeral service. My grandfather's sister passed away this week, and I have been very sad about that. She was quite an impressive woman, and will be missed so much.

In news related to the Montagnard film, though, I am quite pleased to announce that the final interview has been scheduled. I've booked my flight, and will be heading to MN this month. With that interview finalized, I can then pour myself wholeheartedly into creating a director's cut. I cannot express how excited I am about this, as I feel as if I have been waiting so long to make that happen!

It is all coming together.
