How can you speak at Film Festivals every year and have no favorite movies?

Stejahen: Well, I do have favorite movies, I just rarely watch them over and over. Time is the biggest factor there. But, I also find that I am always just itching to get back to a good book. If I really, really love a film, often what I'll do is then go and read (or re-read) the book on which it was based.

Wow! You lived in Little Rock,Ar. I am shocked! That is where I am from originally, but I have since been transplanted to Seattle, WA.

I am a little late in responding, because life has been busy lately, today I decided it was time to catch up on your blog. Some exciting stuff!
