|Q&A with the artists.|
I've been running on close to empty going into this holiday weekend. It was filled with travel to Baltimore for a training on Results-based Facilitation and then a trip to St. Louis to record interviews for an anniversary video. I also finalized my team's script for the 2012 Action on Film Writers' Room Invitational and said good-bye to one job as I prepare to start another.

I also have to to thank all the women who participated in the event. I was engaged in each of the presentations. Dana's photo presentation took me to countries in Europe, Asia, and the middle east. Hearing the actor's read my dialogue brought me back to my mid-twenties, and the essay Anne read from her anthology Press Pause Moments brought home the theme of women empowerment. The program was powerful. Our communities have a wealth of talented, strong and passionate women and the ProduceHERS aims to continue to tap into the creativity, engage and share it with the community. I'm proud to be a part of this community and a messenger in getting the word out about creative women.

As the end of the year closes, I like to take this time to reflect on all that I have done and what I wanted to do in 2012. Launching The ProduceHERS was on the list. So much energy went into getting this collaborative effort off the ground. However, I also realize moving this community-focused effort forward and sustaining it overtime is going to take a more focused and strategic effort in 2013.
I have so many things to reflect on in 2012 and I post is just one of a few you will see with a reflection theme. The time to think about what worked, what didn't, and then begin to plan for next year is here.
With Thanksgiving day gone, the Jewish and Christian holiday season is officially here and although it is easy to get sucked into the commercialism I will stay the course on reflecting for 2012 and count the many blessing that I have had this year.
