"I know why families were created, with all their imperfections.
They humanize you. They are made to make you forget yourself occasionally, so that the beautiful balance of life is not destroyed." Anais Nin
—Robert Redford, President and Founder, Sundance Institute
I need to first give credit where it is most deserved, and that is to my generous and sweet husband, who for Christmas this year gave me a Sundance ticket package (after last year's festival I told him that would make a great gift and he wouldn't have to do a thing - definitely his kind of deal), along with the freedom of spending the weekend completely responsibility free (well, as long as I am sure to make it to church to deliver my Relief Society lesson :-). My friend Rachel, who flies in this evening from New York, and I will spend the next 3 1/2 days reveling in the energy that is the SUNDANCE film festival. I'm just crossing my fingers that the films we picked will be as great as the premiers I saw last year.
