A MOONDANCER WRITES US:
Thank you for your wonderful Moondance Film Festival. Sorry I had to be on crutches and wheelchair, but Thank G-d that has already changed…ready for next year! Darren and I are actually starting a TV series based on the best selling books – SMALL MIRACLES. We will spread the word about Moondance, and having been to many Sundances, and Cannes’, you have a small gem…a filmmaker’s festival. ~ Rabbi Moshe Paul Mones, 2014 Moondance award-winner and Audience Favorite film winner, for the feature film, “Dovid Myer”
Women International salutes Elizabeth English for being the creator and founder of such a creative event as the Moondance International Film Festival, where talent such as our Women International member, Vittoria Colonna, have had her work seen, and then, happily enough, awarded!” ~ Angelique Rockas

SOME THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:
“Start by doing what you are capable of; then do what is necessary; and then do what is possible; and, suddenly, you will find that you are doing the impossible!” ~ Saint Francis of Assisi
“Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises!” ~ Demosthenes
“The secret to success in any endeavor is total concentration.” ~ Kurt Vonnegut
“There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth: not going all the way, and not even starting.” ~ Buddha
“The true test of certainty is not in the moments when everything is going smoothly, but in the times when it seems like everything around us is falling apart. I say “seems” because it is, in fact, all an illusion. Most of the time when things seem to be falling apart, they are really just coming together, albeit very much in disguise to us. We don’t always see the bigger picture, but we need to remember there always is one.” ~ Yehuda Berg
“Everything is always impossible, before it works. That is what entrepreneurs are all about – doing what people have told them is impossible.” ~ Hunt Greene
“If you concentrate on finding whatever is good in every situation, you will soon discover that your life is suddenly filled with gratitude.” ~ Harold Kushner
