The best friend you'll ever have!

Chaos, panic and destruction - my work here is done!

Tuesday, 7 December 2010

A human being is only interesting if he's in contact with himself. I learned you have to trust yourself, be what you are, and do what you ought to do the way you should do it. You have got to discover you, what you do, and trust it. 
Barbra Streisand
It seems that if you trust enough, if you smile enough and if you wait enough, things do begin happening. 
Firstly Sandbook.net, a large and popular pen-palling forum, got in touch after being past one of the postcards I'm circulating regarding an art project about pen-friends. They're now acting as sponsors and promoters, encouraging people to get in touch and be involved. 

Secondly, the lovely owner of Penpal Magazine posted a wonderful blog entry about the film:


So it's gathering steam, which I'm really happy and really thankful for. It's not the project that I thought would begin to take off first but it's certainly a welcome surprise! 


  1. The PenPal Project is amazing! Who would not want to be a part of it? Any self-respecting penpal should simply JUMP towards the idea! We are glad to participate in the project any way we can! Keep up the awesome work!

  2. Dear Santa,
    Please help Rae make her movie in 2011! I am anxious to see it NOW and can only wait a year for it to come! And Santa, if post-production takes a lot of time (no idea how much that usually takes :() please make it so that I can at least have a spoiler sneak peek of the movie in 2011. :) Now get to work, Santa!

  3. What a jolly entry there! We second that!

  4. Hehe you SHALL get a sneak peak in 2011! Ah, the beauty of the You Tubes; you shall (hopefully) have your wishes all granted in 2011.

    Merry Christmas to you, one and all!
