Happy Holidays 2011

Hello Lost In Living Supporters,

I can't thank you enough for participating in my film project and supporting me through it. It means so much to me that you are taking part and believing in this important film.

I want to wish all of you the happiest of Holidays and the very, very best for 2012. I thought this clip was appropriate for the Holiday season because we can so easily get lost in the material aspects of it all. I think Caren eloquently reminds us that we can be less selfish (even if we don't have children) and we can plug into the cycle of life in many, many ways. Enjoy and please feel free to add your comments, ask questions and share your feelings.

Your support has helped us so much in securing an editor to help us finalize the project. And we can still use your help for editing necessities such as sound and color work, output supplies, DVD's, artwork, publicity and to pay a composer for an original score.

If you'd like to make a tax-deductible donation before the end of the year, your contribution is greatly appreciated. Please visit the website here to make a donation on-line or send a check, written out to "Filmmakers Alliance" c/o Mary Trunk, 1218 East Palm Street, Altadena, CA 91001. The Filmmakers Alliance is my 501(c)3 non-profit fiscal sponsor.

Thank you again!

What is your birth story?

What is your birth story? Your own, your mother's, a friend's... What had the most impact on you? Share one detail, the whole story or just a fragment. In my case it was definitely the most transforming experience I've ever been through. Almost three days of labor, an epidural that only worked on one side, a possible C-section that turned into suction and a baby that was close to nine pounds. A baby that changed my life and still is the most beautiful person I know.

Thanks for sharing and thank you for participating in this project.

We are also still trying to raise money for LOST IN LIVING, to pay a composer, cover editing supply costs and publicity materials. Your help and support are hugely appreciated. Thank you, Mary
