Ohoyaho Ohoo!

We have been reading some poems by Wallace Stevens. We liked this one called "Life is Motion"...although, "Ohoyaho..Ohoo" would be a better title!

A Day of Mindfulness - Told in Lego

We often go to the Days of Mindfulness at Blue Cliff Buddhist Monastery (one of Thich Nhat Hanh's 3 monasteries in the US). Here is their Day of Mindfulness told in Lego! We sent the video link to the sisters and brothers for them to see and they really liked it!

 And here is me, in 2011, asking Thich Nhat Hanh (world famous Buddhist teacher) a question.

Tom Sawyer

This is my latest movie: A Few Adventures of Tom Sawyer. We made it with my grandparents in Tennessee and our wonderful friends, who live on the beautiful farm you will see in the movie (they make an appearance too!). We listened to the audiobook of Tom Sawyer on the long trip from NY to TN and back again!

Dr Who: Zapped

When we were in London earlier this year with my Shakespeare director Lesley and her family, we went to see a ton of great plays: Hamlet, Three Sisters, Uncle Vanya, A View From the Bridge, Dorian Gray, and The Malcontent. In between, we also had time to make an episode of Dr Who! We will have to go back soon to see more plays and make the second installment of our episode.

Manga Time

I have been learning to draw in the Manga style using books and Mark Crilley's You Tube videos. Here are some of my drawings. I am working on a Manga book, which is my own spin off from Star Wars about an orphan called Alexander Starreacher and Andromeda Solo (the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia) who are both training to be Jedis.
