With 2016 waving goodbye and 2017 quickly approaching, here I am, running towards you with my latest offering; movie 11 of 12, “Anuta.”
I met Anuţa (pronounced Anutza) on the vampire search trail which took us north of Transyvania, in Maramures. I feel in love with her within the first 2 minutes of meeting her. As soon as she shared her love of singing, I asked her to sing for me. It became clear that she would be the subject of my December film.
Maybe it’s ego centric to see one’s life in the reflection of another but she made me think of what my life would have been like had my parents refused to let me go to music school.
I love this woman for the beauty of her soul, the delicate and mesmerizing sound of her voice and for the fact that she lives with ardor and an uncompromising sense of self. As she might wish she took a different path in life, my wish is that I may be as strong and graceful as she is.
And while I’m wishing, here’s a wish for you.
May 2017 bring you health, joy, strength and wonder.
I am grateful for you!
