John Sayles' AMIGO and A Moment in the Sun out at last.




Wednesday, November 9, 2011

I've been away

Did you miss me? I have actually had some time off-and I'll be doing more of that, just watch me-but we haven't stopped promoting AMIGO and MOMENT IN THE SUN.

I'm going to work backwards, and take you to the most recent stop on our American Lakbay/Tour: The Sixth Annual Sanibel Writers Workshop. John was the keynote speaker and also read from the Tampa chapter to a warm crowd of about 300. Speaking of warm, thank you to Tom De Marchi for the invitation-once accepted, we cooked up a mini-tour of Florida and Louisiana, follow us along. For more about the conference,  go to http://www.fgcu.edu/siwc 
 
Here's Tom with John. Florida Gulf Coast University is very lucky to have teachers as enthusiastic as Tom and his wife Karen Tolchin. Their students had to buy John's book!
Here are some getting autographs.
Here is the view, through the screen of our 2nd floor lanai, of the beach on Sanibel Island.





We fled New York after 9.5 inches of snow and 4 days without power. We deserve a view of the Gulf.

  1. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us here in Bohol! Our cultural group called the Baryo Amigo Cultural Troupe just presented a show Dec. 17 called "Daygon sa Pagkatawo" (Nativity Carol) based on a folk Christmas music tradition in Toril, Maribojoc Bohol about the circumstances of the birth of Christ in Bethlehem, for the Bohol Arts Festival in Tagbilaran. It's like a musical-- but grassroots based. It has dancing "pastores" singing San Jose and Santa Maria" and more! It will be on video film soon! Watch for it. It's our Christmas season repertoire. Cheers!
