I’m heading to LA next week to visit The Tree in the middle of Rose Bowl parking lot K and to celebrate one of its 200 Tree Babies that is growing so beautifully and tall at USC.
The Tree and its Tree Babies began teaching me about love, devotion, and activism quite a long time ago, and they continue to do so today.
They also continue to teach me about family, community, and collectivism. I’m deeply grateful to everyone who has offered hugs, water, and other forms of nourishment to the Tree and its Tree Babies.
We are gathering on April 27 in LA for a discussion about what we can do for our environment and for each other, both individually and collectively. We will screen my film Sick-Amour, celebrate the USC Tree Baby, and offer it both water and affection.
It would be wonderful if you could join us.

Three videos from the Sick-Amour installation will be on display in the show, “Dirty Talk: Art. Environment. Action” at USC. There will be a current photo of the USC tree baby — which is now quite big! — and a map of its location on campus.
The show is going to be wonderful, and I hope to see you at the opening tomorrow night!
The movie version of Sick-Amour is now available on Amazon Prime, as well as Amazon Instant Video. Many thanks to Suzanne Harle and Green Planet Films for making that happen!
My deep thanks for the incredible story that Avishay Artsy put together from our recent conversation about The Sharing Project. I LOVED hearing it just now on KCRW!
If you didn’t hear it on the radio, you can catch it here!
The movie versions of Sick-Amour and Pumping will be screening in the Transition Town Totnes Film Festival on Sunday November 16th at 6 pm in the Civic Hall (on High Street) in Totnes, England. Afterwards, I will be talking about Sick-Amour, Pumping, and The Sharing Project.
The movie versions of Pumping and Sick-Amour will be screening in the UK Man and Biosphere Committee Urban Forum’s event, “Spirituality, Culture, Myth, Art, and Nature.” The event will be held at the Balaji Temple Conference Centre in Sandwell, England on October 25 and 26.
Sick-Amour will screen on October 25th at 3:30 pm in the Main Hall at the Temple.
Pumping will screen twice, first at 3:52 pm and then at 4:50 pm, on October 25th in the Upper Film Room Conference Centre at the Temple.
