My Fellini Project (erstwhile)

Federico Fellini filming

Last week I posted THIS and got a terrific response. Here's a re-cap:

Here's what I want to do. I want to make a video like this for mothers and fathers who have children with disabilities, special needs, broken children -- whatever you want to call them -- children who are or have been sick, who live, who have lived, who live in our hearts. 

If you could go back to right before you had that child, or right before he or she was diagnosed, what would you tell yourself?

Please help me to make this video. If you want to participate, make a poster of your answer and have someone take your picture holding the poster. Email me the photo -- elsophie AT gmail DOT com. I will make the video -- I live in Hollywood, folks! I know people!

I've already gotten several emails with photos and advice from a few of you and want to encourage the rest to send them on in! I will hopefully be compiling the photos/posters by the end of the month.

Don't be shy! Send me your stuff at elsophie AT gmail DOT com.


  1. i love this. and i LOVE having to distill it into something that will fit on a poster. wheels are turnin'.

  2. I made my poster. I just need someone to take my picture! This is so awesome, I can't wait to watch it.

    On a more silly and juvenile note, my word verification is "queefs". I am giggling. :)

  3. Would a child's fairly profound reading disability count? I am asking seriously.

  4. Ms. Moon -- Of course it would! Please be included, please.

  5. I'm thrilled to see that you are getting a great response and are going ahead with this.

  6. This is a terrific idea. Good luck with it. i look forward to seeing the finished product.

  7. What a fabulous idea.

    So poster is the format to do it in?

  8. I have my poster board -- just trying to decide on the short (one word) or longer version (3 words) of what I want to say..but I'm IN!

  9. i love the idea. i can't wait to see it.
