SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:

“Wisdom can be an enormous support, whether you seek to be ahead of the curve, navigate stressful times, release repetitive patterns, bring more prosperity into your life, heal from illness, manifest love, or simply appreciate everyday moments. Wisdom gives you information, knowledge, and support to grow and change, so you can master challenges and achieve your highest potential.” ~ YEHUDA BERG

“Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races, one after the other.” ~ WALTER ELLIOTT, American Roman Catholic priest and missionary

MOONDANCERS WRITE US:

 

“I find it far more challenging to make something quick and powerful. I really love your idea (to add film trailers to the contest). Short promotional pieces really are in a class by themselves and the artists and craftspeople, or just plain hobbyists who create them deserve to be recognized . A great “Hassah” for your intention! Rock on, Elizabeth!” ~ PETER LEWIS (from LinkedIn.com, on Moondance’s addition of film trailers to the 2013 competition)

“Thanks for all you do for the industry to promote well-being (what a challenge!).” ~ CHESLEY LYDEKKER, screenwriter, multi-media filmmaker

 

“Elizabeth! Your enthusiasm, drive, and positive energy is inspiring!” ~ RICHARD “RB” BOTTO, CEO, www.Stage32.com, popular entertainment industry networking site

MOONDANCE RECOMMENDS:

Moondancer, Earl D. James’ new award-winning novel:

“BELLA COOLA: THE RAINFOREST BROUGHT THEM HOME”

 

A novel set in the lush British Columbia rainforest, with a compelling storyline: the Bella Coola find themselves straddling several competing worlds: Native American and Euro-American, material and spiritual, past and future, when opposing the imminent destruction of their ancient and sacred valley, in a world where spirit and greed face off for control.http://www.earldjames.com/news.html

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

I LOVE LINKEDIN.COM! LinkedIn is a great international entertainment industry professional networking opportunity for everyone! I’ve recently gotten two feature screenplay writing commissions from networking on www.linkedin.com. LinkedIn has over 200 million world-wide professional members!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Another international entertainment industry networking site I highly recommend: www.stage32.com. ~ Elizabeth

“Don’t wait for things to happen, make them happen. Join Stage 32 today and start building your network.” ~ Richard “RB” Botto, CEO, Stage 32
