lost in the words

I can't wait to get into this one. Edwidge Danticat is one of my favorite writers. She actually might be my favorite. I went to hear her speak at the LA library with DG a few years back and I was in awe. You woulda though she was Beyonce the way I was staring at her. Her kind of talent is rare and a true treasure. I hope and pray I can create a work in my medium that is as excellent as the works she creates in hers.

Funny thing, even though I am a director, I consider myself more of a reader than movie watcher. Growing up, I would spend hours holed up in my room on the top bunk of my bed lost in a book. I welcome the peace and pleasure a good book brings.  I ashamed to say I haven't finished one book this year though! Been caught up in the grind. Changing that right now...
