Yekra Player

Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.

Unacceptable Levels

Unacceptable Levels examines the results of the chemical revolution of the 1940s through the eyes of affable filmmaker Ed Brown, a father seeking to understand the world in which he and his wife are raising their children. To create this debut documentary, one man and his camera traveled extensively to find and interview top minds in the fields of science, advocacy, and law. Weaving their testimonies into a compelling narrative, Brown presents us with the story of how the chemical revolution brought us to where we are, and of where, if we’re not vigilant, it may take us.

Making my head spin

To Do list. Image by Anna Langova

Did you ever have so much going on that it puts you in a mild panic? Yeah, that's me right now. I've been sick, which is slowing me down, and I'm behind on a novel I'm editing for a client; I have voice over work due on Wednesday, but don't have much of a voice right now; have to lead my writers' group tonight; and I want to keep up with the blog. Looking ahead, I have company arriving on Saturday for five days (worst timing EVER); have my first meeting of a new writers' group I'm leading that Monday; leave for a conference on the day they leave (I'm teaching 3 workshops and am on the faculty panel discussion); and then head to Chicago for three days for a blogging event the day after I arrive home from the writing conference. Plus, my mom's house is finally on the market and when it sells, we'll have 30 days to go and clean it out, which could be at any time. Seriously?! The stress level is high.

As I look at that list, I get panicky. How will I ever accomplish everything? And then, I'm reminded of that saying, "One day at a time." 

Each day, I'll be focusing on what needs to be done on that day. Sometimes, the list will be too long to spend time blogging. That's where you come in. Over the next few weeks, I would love to have a bunch of guest bloggers. If you're up for the challenge, email me at I'm looking for posts about environmental issues, parenting experiences, birth stories, and some new perspectives for Vinegar Fridays. 

For now, I'm off to plan an agenda for tonight's meeting. Looking forward to hearing from you.
