REMEMBER Chris's photojournalism in India? Well, he's at it again, as is Hillary, in Israel. Take a look:
Goat heads. I never before saw this. Remember in the film "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," the gal describes Christmas at their house where the uncles take the eyeballs and run around scaring the little kids with them.
The presence of the toilet seat attests to the high standard of living of the people who lived here.
Tomb of the Holy Sepulchre where Jesus is said to be buried.

NEW SUBJECT: A follow-up about my two film friends on our cruise to Eastern Europe last December.
I want to offer my sincere apology for not following up with you sooner. It’s amazing how life can just get busy and time flits by. I hope you are doing well and that the New Year is treating you well so far.
I recently had lunch with my friend whom I told you about. His company is going through a restructuring at the moment and his future there is a bit up in the air. I was hopeful that I might be able to help with your book in some way but sadly that isn’t the case.
All the best to you and Marv,
MY ANSWERING LETTER:
Thank you, Todd, for being so conscientious. It seems the the film business is as slippery/ tough/ fickle as the literary agent/publishing business.
By the way, your friend whose "future is a bit up in the air” may be interested in looking at my novels as they are "very cinematic" according to the late Joni Gordon, creator and owner for 35 years of Newspace Art Gallery. Her resting place with the Smithsonian Archives is assured after a most extensive interview.
Your friend may be interested for the future in looking at my sites (first, the Amazon site for a quick compressive read, and second the website for my blogs and bio):
714.220.1882 (for messages), 714.336.7007 (Cell)
One more word about fine films for you and Scott to see. The incredible foreign film “Babette’s Feast” will appeal to your knowledge of imagery. And the message is starkly apt to the imagery.
For me now, since I have written a number of novels and short where the seed kernel is a love story (not a romance), I’m venturing out with a new novel, “A Woman of a Certain Age”. It seems like a logical step. I will be working on it for quite a while.
To you and your friend, and to Scott, I wish you stamina and eternal optimism for a bright future in the film industry.
