I am awfully excited to let you know about HEVRIA created by 
Pop Chassid Elad Nehorai. I am a resident writer and I am 
in extraordinary company. Check out the roster and find out 
more here.

From Elad himself:
"Hevria is a combination of the words "Hevreh" and "Bria" in
Hebrew, which mean "group of friends" and "creation." 


We are a group devoted to spreading the idea of positive
creation 
in a spiritual context. We want to make this world
beautiful. And we want you to join us."

Here's my debut post, "That Kind of Jew" — I offer it with love.

Welcome to Night Vale is an AMAZING podcast. It's so cool. It's Lake Wobegoth.
That's reductive, but I mean it in the most complimentary way, just to give some 
context. It's beyond. I discovered it when my poem, I Know This, was featured as
t
he weather report on 
Episode 10: Feral Dogs. Now, I am addicted. Start at the beginning,
listen to them all. Obsess.

Film Festival Madness! 

Two of my projects, "Lie Down Beside You" and "Divine Connection," 
both collaborations with the extraordinary choreographer Keith Johnson,
are featured in the 4 The Camera Film Festival in Long Beach, California. 

"Lie Down Beside You" has also been chosen to appear in the
Landlocked Film Festival in Iowa City, Iowa.
This is especially sweet since this is where the track,
a collaboration with Tack-Fu, was recorded. Hearts!
