The Best and Most Beautiful of Things

Dear Beloved Blog Readers,

I just saw the most wonderful film at the Vermont International Film Festival.

It's about a real girl in Maine. Pleasant, totally quirky and queer kid that knocks the stereotypes of 'blind' and 'autistic' off the charts. She is in the midst of a movement called "Unlearning Normal".

I hope you look it up and send her a line via the movie's web site.                 

We audience members got the joy of skyping with her after the screening.

I asked how the movement is going and she said "existing is my focus right now".

We all need more than that.

Reach for the stars!

On we go.
