'A Powerful Noise' Comes to the Big Screen March 5

Imagine my delight last weekend at the movies on a date with my husband when one of the previews was for a special film about the power of women to heal the world that will be shown across the U.S. on March 5. I turned to Doug and said, "See! It is everywhere!"

On Thursday, March 5, in honor of International Women’s Day, CARE will present A POWERFUL NOISE Live in 450 movie theatres nationwide. The one-night event will feature the acclaimed documentary, “A Powerful Noise,” followed by a town hall discussion with expert and celebrity panelists broadcast live from New York City. Go to for participating theatres and ticket information – or click here to buy tickets now!

Documentary Synopsis:“A Powerful Noise” takes you inside the lives of three women from different countries to witness their daily efforts to fight HIV/AIDS, champion girls’ education and unite ethnically divided communities. The presentation will conclude with a live panel of renowned advocates discussing how women, equipped with proper resources, have the power to help families and entire communities escape poverty.

Moving so fast....

I sat down to write in this blog at least 20 times in the past month and got distracted by some fast-moving idea, question, conversation, challenge and/or possibility that jumped up to surprise me. The short version: Life is fascinating and complicated and glorious...and time is moving fast.

How to summarize: The women keep gathering and having remarkable conversations and cooking up delicious and mysterious stews. Constellations of Hope is following all Her 'yeses' to multiple new impulses and coming-togethers. Doug and I are laughing a lot at our rescued 10 month old Golden Retriever puppy, Sarah and loving on our 12 year old Lily. My boys are very tall and wonderful and they love me. Twenty friends joined me for my 57th birthday on January 20 for a 'Birth-Auguration Party' where we celebrated all the bright energy of hope and gratitude in the air - and ate entirely too much dessert.

May this Year of the Ox bring your rich rewards for following your passion all the way to your destiny.
