Currently I am filming a documentary and traveling with my son and daughter. We are on a quest for hope. It has been such a journey so far. This film is called Tour de Rose - A Quest for Hope. I was stirred by the passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain. A few days after these tragic events I woke up wanting to find hope for people who suffer from despair or may feel the lack of hope. As we have interviewed people who live all over the world I have gained a little more understanding of what hope means.

This is a loosely based on a true story of the life of a woman named Mabel
Many people repeat the cycle of dysfunction. Unfortunate events and ill treatment of a person during the time they should have been nurtured can scar who they are as adults. This definitely can affect the choices they make in choosing a partner. In some cases the person feels comfortable to repeat the horrible cycle of abuse. In the 50's women were trapped. Once they realized they married an abuser they couldn't get out.
This is only one story of millions of women's stories that are rarely told. Broken dreams, and broken hearts have paved the landscape of our world for way to long. My hope is that women today will rise up like the glorious sun and shine bright and warm hearts with their amazing talents. As we stand together to nurture other women and encourage them to stand with us, and know that everything under the sun is possible. Woman's oppression has been around for thousands of years. Let your creative talent become who you are, not a dream that never becomes a reality. You are worthy, you are loved, you are a woman.
