Miss Me?

Time got away from me, as did this blog.

A couple of days ago, I got a posting on this blog from one of the "experts" who appeared in my Why Get Married? documentary. I hadn't seen or spoken to her in a couple of years. Elizabeth is a professor at Memorial University in St. John's Newfoundland. I had interviewed her the summer of 2004, to talk to me about some of the differences between marriage and beliefs about marriage in Canada and the USA. I really liked one of her lines when she spoke of non-western fairytale endings being, "and they lived as happily as could be expected."

So I was happy to hear from her. Elizabeth emailed me that her cousin who lives in New Zealand said she'd seen Elizabeth on TV. Elizabeth was a bit confused as few were aware Why Get Married? is airing a couple of times this year in NZ. What a small world when word of mouth goes across so many miles. And she got in touch with me via the blog of all things.

I was encouraged when Elizabeth got in touch and I heard her story. Honestly, I have fallen down on the distribution/marketinig end having gotten consumed by some other projects. Yikes. So it is nice to know folks are still watching it because the topic is of interest. As I sit here typing though, I figure my next one should be "Why Get Hot Flashes?" THEY ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY this week. Uugh!
