Monday Morning Quote 

October 21, 2013


"Collaboration, it turns out, is not a gift from the gods but a skill that requires effort and practice."

Douglas B. Reeves

"We are exploring together.  We are cultivating a garden together, backs to the sun.  The question is a hoe in our hands and we are digging beneath the hard and crusty surface to the rich humus of our lives."
Parker J. Palmer

As true in the collaboration of relationship and family as it is in the business and artistic workplace . . . it is a skill . . . it is a practice . . . it is an art . . .

My collaborative professional work this week is putting together and co-hosting (with my Co-President, Avis Boone) the 2013 Collaboration Awards for the Women in the Arts & Media Coalition, a very exciting evening celebrating Women Working With Women, that I am collaborating on with some wonderful women, and that is honoring some women I respect and revere and love.

My collaborative personal work this week is trying to keep taking all the curve balls we've been thrown (and are throwing at each other) and find a way to keep moving forward with strength and with grace.  Take no crap but do it nicely.  Not always easy.  Especially in a week like this one coming up.

But I keep cultivating the skills, the practice . . .

I have a plan for a book in my list of projects to write sometime:  "Relationship As a Collaborative Art Form."  

The process is the product.

This is the first time a film has been named Collaboration Award winner. A political mockumentary shot on the actual 2012 Republican campaign trail, Janeane from Des Moines seamlessly merges documentary film with fiction as it follows 'Janeane,' a vulnerably imagined member of the Tea Party, as she follows Republican candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Perry, among others, seeking answers to her real world problems and begging them to save 'small American families' like hers.

Honored Finalist
Silent Witnesses (a play) 
by Stephanie Satie (AEA, SAG-AFTRA) 
and Anita Khanzadian (SDC)

The Island of No Return (a play)
