Letters to Tuvia #201 We’re Off (4-10-16)

It’s Sunday afternoon and I’m on my couch getting the video fruits of the last two days downloaded into Final Cut to create our first two official projects for Tell it Digital. 

I can feel the warmth of your smile, T.  Yes, I’ve found my anchor to stay engaged and creative in the world with the help of my partner, Christine!

Yesterday I was out early and headed home up to Ellenville for an interview session Herbie.  Margaret had a fresh shirt and pants out for him and his nutty dog was outside on the chain and out of my way. Can you imagine what he could do to my fancy tripod?

My dad was hoping for the best, but sadly, even though he’s totally engaged in the present, his past is a getting fogging.  Yes, he remembers that he experienced a rich life but he can’t pull up specific moments, even with starters from me.  He was frustrated but there’s Jeff to the rescue and we will try for more from him when we’re together for Passover.  I think the family voices will embellish his piece.

This morning Christine arrived even earlier than expected and I welcomed her, ready to go. No traffic, a great parking spot in Jersey City and we were welcomed by Luke and Eva for their  interview experiencer.  Perfect timing.  Eva is expecting in May and they are living in a gorgeous space and most important they have a compelling story to share. We are both excited to celebrate their new life together and my dad’s legacy.

After a great brunch in Piermont we ended at the Apple store with Christine getting the info she needs to get new mac computer to get creatively messy  with Telling it Digital.


I see you T, grinning!!!!

  1. I’m back from my family, know I’ve missed some of your posts, but you sound very excited about this new project, Bonnie. I’m assuming it’s oral story-telling, but digitally done, much more compelling I think. Sounds great Bonnie, a good start to this week!

    • Welcome home friend😍
      Tell It Digital is an old idea reimagined combining interviews, images, music and voiceover using great Appke software to ehance the story.
      The added element is a partner I’ve worked with in the Writing Project for years.
      It’s 5:45 am and I’m waiting for a cup of coffee before I dive in.
