Something I'm proud of -- one of my son's early films

Chris Muir on the set of his short film "Bye"
Watch it here
As Alyson Stanfield points  out it's good to share the work of other
artists.  I had planned to share the work of William Kentridge but
that can wait for another night.  Five years ago on this date
my son Christopher Muir directed a short that received great attention.
Thanks to Facebook for reminding me about it.  I thought I'd
share the memory both here and on FB.  It's a fun film to watch.

Steven and I played the young woman in the story's mother and
father -- and as the whole drama is very fast, I am just a whirl
of hair, and Steven is in the hallway and may not show.

I had forgotten all about this project which was super fun to be
part of.  I love the theme, all revolving around the word
"Bye" and all of the different meanings and emotions conveyed
by that word.  So I am sharing it today.

I hope you know that when I say "Bye" to you tonight,
I am going to be back another day when time permits.

Having a saying "Bye" with meaning day.

It's fascinating isn't it Nicki how much emotion can go into that one word!

I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Hi Suzanne,

Thank you so much. Your story rocks me -- I feel your pain like a punch,
and the beauty of your devotion. Love so clear and obvious in your words
and art. You do us all a kindness to share it.
