No, this isn't a story about the tragedy of Alzheimer's Disease, it's about your own memories being used as evidence against you in a court of law. Science fiction? I thought so, but not anymore.

As happens so often in life, writer/director Rajeev Nirmalakhandan fell into creating a movie named The Odd Way Home quite by accident. A colleague who'd been engaged to produce a film on autism was unable, so she suggested it to him.

Being an Out-Of-The-Box woman myself for as long as I can remember (which is a kinder, gentler, more modern way of calling someone the Black Sheep of the Family), I love it when I find people accomplishing the ordinary by extraordinary means.

Stages Repertory Theatre: The Glitz and Glamour of Theatrical Fundraising

Perhaps theater has always been an idea whose best moment is yet to come. I mean, there must be something maddening about the year-in, year-out program model that regional theaters must bear in order to do their work.

I never understood peoples' attraction to horror movies but, as a writer-turned-filmmaker who just spent three days totally immersed in the genre (courtesy of Shriekfest Horror Film Festival in Los Angeles), I have a newly-developed appreciation for the films.

I have a whole new outlook, a whole new respect for it, and I'm glad, because there is so much that these passionate, talented, incredibly creative, and gloriously twisted artists have to offer!

Ever since 2011, when my 89 and 91-year-old parents were financially exploited and I became embroiled in the issue -- and in the battle -- I have been...

If someone shares something in confidence, particularly something that's difficult to bear, maybe we should go a step further with our definition than just not bringing it up at the next town meeting. Maybe we should not bring it up at all, to anyone, ever.

Something Beyond Survival - The Final Chapter

Hating is a heavy weight to carry around, all day, every day, as is fear, as is self-recrimination. They cloud everything, even to the point of watering down even the best experiences in your life so that the joy those experiences should bring become not much more than mediocre, and that's no way to live.

Except for instances in the entertainment industry, I have never heard the words "I feel sorry for you" used as anything other than a weapon. In fact, I cannot think of a single phrase packed with more insincerity than that one.

Last time, I talked about that maddeningly endless litany of seemingly unanswerable questions that can feel like pinballs bouncing around in your head...

Not that I would ever trivialize the enormity of being a 'survivor' -- after all, I'm one, too -- but once the initial relief of realizing I'd attained that goal had abated, it wasn't long before I began to wonder, "OK ... now what?"

Every single one of us has one thing in common: Unless we die young, we're headed directly into old age. And we damned well better do something about the financial exploitation of the elderly now, because 'too late' is coming up real fast.
