October has been a hectic month. Lots of going on and lots of happening.
Two Indians Talking has been nominated for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Film and Best Director at the American Indian Film Festival. I felt ecstatic and proud that this film has been getting a lot of buzz in festivals. I remember the times when Sara and I communicated through Skype to edit the film and we reminisced the production, she wished that it never wrapped. I agree with her. I enjoyed every single day being in the production and being on set was like being in a different world. I missed it.
By mid-October, my sister and I went to Las Vegas. She partied. I didn’t. Basically, I did nothing in Las Vegas. For me, it was a total relaxation to do nothing. My mind was shut and it was a complete recharging my battery. I gambled but just a little bit. I’m not really much of a gambler. We went to Red Canyon, took some pictures but the trip was mostly to visit my Aunt Lou who I haven’t seen for 24 years. It was great connecting with her although the trip was short but I’ve learned a little bit about my culture. I’ve always been wanting to learn more about my culture and the reason why I do things. I have yet to find the answers.
