The lecture and sampling of my art work at the event in Burbank on May 22 gave me a wonderful opportunity to meet more people interested in the project. I also met with repatriates who I had interviewed last year and met others with whom I had had only written correspondence. Prior to my visit, I had created a 30-minute video film to show at the end, what I call my tribute film, but my computer let me down. I could not convert my final working footage to a final movie, so instead I had to present my "Fresno" tribute version in Burbank. I will be working in the interim to change this for my next speaking event. The studio art film that I created looked very nice on the big screen at the back of the lecture hall. For those who may never have the chance to see my artwork in person but who are interested in seeing it up close, I plan to post it on my Home Page sometime this Fall. Thank you to those who came up to me and introduced themselves--I hope to maintain periodic contact and develop longterm meaningful friendships!
