    1. Hello my brilliant friend! How are you today? Thank you so much for your generous comment. You are incredibly talented and also unique and an enigma. I am endlessly fascinated by you and what you say with your writing… Beautiful day to you. Michele x

      1. I miss Michele…and feel blessed when great news of her exceptional self turns up in my mail. People are not mistaken with the love and praise they bring. You are just special, Michele. Oh, remain special, my lovey-dovey.

        Michele, you are an Archangel!!!!

        Blessings to you.


      4. Today is actually one of those procrastination days where I stay away from the keyboard and just be random. Hope all are excellent there in UK!

        And, have a great day too!

      5. Ah yes, I know what you mean… there are days when the thoughts just want to mingle with each other but not offer themselves to the ‘real’ world. Or at least that’s how I try to explain away my procrastination non-writing days. BTW, what does your random look like? For me it often involves long stretches of time when I visit other star systems!!! Sometimes I report back via WordPress, sometimes not 🙂 Wishing you a wonderful day. Michele

    1. Dearest Scott, thank you so much for the nomination. I am sending you a deep well of gratitude. I have read the ‘rules’ and promise to do my duty and pass on the love. I hope you’re having a beautiful day. Michele x

    1. Thank you so much for this honour, and for your kindness and support in nominating my blog. It’s the second time this week that I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award. Amazing! Thank you again and all best wishes to you.

    1. Dear Konstantine, thank you so much for your kind appreciation. I will definitely do my best to keep up the good work! And I look forward to following your blog and learning more about your passions and your beautiful work. Happy New Year to you.

      1. Love and light to you Archangel Elias. I thank God for you. Your love and friendship is invaluable. Have a beautiful, healthy and prosperous 2013. All best wishes for your book and may you and your family soar to new heights. Stay blessed, Michele

  3. I am moved beyond words that my humble blog attracted your attention.

    Thanks for showing interest in what I put out.
    I sincerely hope you continue to find my works entertaining & pleasurable.
    Be safe.

  4. Hello again, Michele! Scott from Gnostic Bent here. I’m not sure if I ever told you, but your education, experience and accolades seem oddly similar to some early career goals I set for myself and sadly never reached. I am very impressed and proud for you, of course, but I would be lying if I said some envy and maybe even jealousy weren’t also floating around in there. Unfortunately, I pursued an MA in Creative Writing just before MFA programs started popping up everywhere in the States. In my time, the only ones were so exclusive that I never would have gotten in anyway. I wasn’t a teenage filmmaker, prepubescent & published author or anything like that. However, I was permitted to write a full-length, feature film script for my thesis, along with a critical essay about the genre I selected: film noir. And this from a guy who essentially taught himself to write screenplays, treatments and such (despite preferring to attend a more established, prestigious and formal program at some other institution… like UCLA, for instance… jealous, jealous). At any rate, this also came as my university was first establishing their film program, so I inadvertently became the first grad student to successfully defend not just his thesis, but a film script. Of course, that was my one-and-only achievement in the field, so I couldn’t be more impressed with your resume. Congratulations on the success of “Moonbug,” by the way! I haven’t seen it yet, but I certainly look forward to doing so. Incidentally, I know another documentary filmmaker (an American) who also focuses on social change, primarily with regard to history. His name is Ken Wyatt and his film “Colored Confederates” has been doing pretty well. Is it possible your paths may have crossed, perhaps at a film festival? If not, then it might be worth making the connection/contact, so please let me know your thoughts and I’ll point him at your blog. He’s a great guy who has real passion for his craft. And since his wife and I have worked together for years at the college, I trust and respect him as I would my own brother. You know where to find me, Michele, and not just for the Ken connection. My interest in film and screenwriting is still there, so maybe I can pick your brain sometime, hmmm? Regardless, keep up the good work and know that I wish you nothing but success in all your endeavors. Still a little jealous, though 🙂

    1. Hi Scott,

      Thank you so much for your appreciation of my work. Let me say that I am in awe of you! It was fascinating to read about a few of the important choices you’ve made in your life. Successfully defending a thesis AND a film script. Absolutely brilliant. As for me, I feel blessed every day and consider what I do for a living to be an incredible privilege. I started life in an orphanage and the elderly folks who raised me died when I was still a teenager. When I was starting out on this path I told a dear friend of mine that I wanted to put my love into films. Of course, knowing the film industry as we do… it turned out not to be that simple 🙂 And, yes, I would love to be in touch with Ken Wyatt — please go ahead and point Ken in the direction of my blog. And, Scott, please feel free to pick my brain. I am ready and waiting! Have a wonderful day and I wish you every success and the fulfillment of your dreams. M

  5. Very impressive! Thanks for commenting on my blog and in so doing allowing me to find you! 😉

    I’m going to ask you a favour… would you please also read a few of my posts about the situation in South Africa… a lady with your skills could create massive awareness of the issues ongoing there!! I’ll include one link.. this post is the last in a series and will provide further links! Thanks again.


    1. Lovely to receive your reply and I am grateful for your appreciation of my work. I will gladly look at your link to the situation in South Africa. If I can be of service in any way I’m open to exploring how we could create massive awareness of the challenges people are facing in South Africa. Thank you for opening my eyes.

  6. Fantastic!
    Such accomplishments! And using your gifts in beautiful ways. That what I like to see.
    Thank you for your generous words on my blog. I am so grateful to have you along on my directionless journey!
    I haven’t had much of a chance to look over your blog but I promise that I will later this evening. I’m looking forward to it.

  7. You are a very busy blogger! I closely relate to you on the theme of non-violent conflict resolution and will try to make the time to read your posts in more depth. Thanks for visiting creationlace and leaving a supportive comment there. Love, Paul

    1. Paul, thanks for visiting my blog. I enjoyed reading your comment — and, yes, we do closely relate on the theme of non-violent conflict resolution. I’ve been blogging quite a bit lately… challenging myself to write a post a day and connect with numerous great bloggers on WordPress. You, my friend, are one of them! Love, Michele

  8. Congratulations Michele on receiving such prestigious awards for your documentaries. Having studied filmmaking myself, I know how competitive the field is and how your work has to stand out to be recognized. You did it, and at the same time, contributed to the betterment of humankind!

    1. Bev, thank you, Your kind words mean so much to me. Filmmaking has been my calling from an early age. Every day I give thanks that I was born this way! And thank you for contributing to the betterment of humankind. Have a great day. Michele

    1. Great to meet you too! I’ll definitely check out your site and take a look at your work. Hope you find something to interest you here 🙂 Always welcome feedback, ideas, and am open to collaboration. Peace and be blessed. Michele

      1. Hi Michele,

        I have found something of interest. I love your blog. I’m open to collaboration too. I would love to take a look at your work, do you have IMDB? And do you have a Youtube page or a post with links to some of your work? That’s if you vibed with my work, but even if you don’t I’m interested to see some of your work. 🙂 Peace and be blessed!

      2. Hello Again! Yes I’d love to share some links to my work. Check out this link for some examples of the films I’ve made.


        Depending on the film, I was either the producer – director – editor – camera — and all of the above! You know 🙂 Would love to hear your thoughts and links to anything you’ve done (or would like to do) that has a similar vibe and sensibility. Thanks again for your interest. Peace and blessings, Michele

  10. Hi Michele,

    Well on my about page there are two shorts. Presently setting up a pitch for another fictional film via my rep, but I had to take some time to polish it.

    The film is this one: http://glothefilm.blogspot.com/
    This is info on the short we were fundraising for but now we are tackling the feature the short was a derivative of. You can also watch the two shorts in my about section. Everything else is old film school stuff found on youtube. But thanks for the interest!!!!! But, how do I get to your work? Another way perhaps?

  37. Michele –
    You have a very intriguing blog – keep up the good work! 🙂 I love the photos, especially the ones of the trees. There’s just something about the bare trees against the big, bold sky that is so captivating!
    Thank you for stopping by my blog, and deciding to follow me on my journey. I consider it an honor to have you join me.
    I hope you have a wonderful week – looking forward to more amazing photos from you! 🙂

  39. Dear Michele,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking my work and book ‘From the Silence Within’.
    Indeed, it’s an honor to be connected with you.
    I loved the Autumn pictures of ‘the Trees in prayer’ 🙂 (if I may call them that !)
    I’m so happy to read about your documentary films and hoping I can see them here in India.
    With lots of best wishes for your Photography & Films and your wonderful writing blog here.

    Madhavi Sood

  40. Dear Michele,
    I’m so sorry, I had wanted to share a picture of some Gulmohar trees here (in India) and by error in pasting it, the above amazon link to my book got pasted!
    Regret the inconvenience caused.
    And I don’t know how to undo it now ! I’m new on this wordpress site here! 🙂

    This is the picture I had actually wished to share with you… ( I had taken it last month when spring had silently sprung in here – this is a picture of the blooms of the Gulmohar tree in my backyard here) Hoping you like it.

    With Best Wishes & Regards

  41. I have to say, I originally stopped here because of your name.
    Michele, not many of us spell it that way. LOL!
    But once here, I fell in love with your words lovely lady. You are a talent in many ways. I will kept my eye on you.
    Much Love

    1. Wow, thank you for your beautiful words. Still to this day I don’t why my mother chose to spell my name with one L — but I give thanks if it meant that out of the blue you would stop my blog. Thanks mum — and thank you, Glynis 🙂

      1. hallo Michele dear…it’s been a while. Tejan and my family are fine, and tired with the heat. Thankfully, the rains have started coming – with flowers sprouting everywhere. And a lot of songs too, from bird and man…uhum.

        Cheers, sweet Michele


  42. Thanks for liking my Tinnitus poems. The “likes” have been rare recently (partly my own fault, maybe; I admit I do absolutely nothing to promote my blog) so it’s much appreciated. Your blog looks absolutely wonderful!

  43. Michele – I followed you to your blog from a comment you left on Hanne’s blog. I am delighted to have found another photographer/poet. I love to combine both of those vehicles of expression myself. In my blog, I started posting some of my original photos and poetry written in response to them under the category: Ekphrastica, if you get a chance to stop by.
    BTW, what drew you to study German and Russian? As a multi-lingual myself, just curious, I am originally from German and emigrated to the US as a student. Acquired a few phrases of Russian during a short stint in the Ukraine a while ago.

  44. Dear Michele, your smart with a lot of intelligence and can potentially influence millions of people for the better. My evergreen blogs and books, especially COMMON SENSE are filled with interesting social, political, and economic factual information which frequently separates fact from fiction and hopefully stimulates creative thinking. If you ever run out of ideas for you screen writing recharge them with my writing. Best wishes and enjoy!!! Uldis

  45. You are vivacious. Such a meaningful place here. I am grateful to find your work and I thank you for the goodness that you allow to pass through your heart into our world. Blessed, smiles!

  46. Love that photo of you!! Thank you for the follow. I appreciate it! Let me know if you have anything showing in Seattle, OK? We have a film fest going on right now – maybe you’ve got something in it?

  47. Hi! Thank you for following my blog! I am happy you enjoyed my posts, and I appreciate your “follow” very much.

    I love the picture of you at the top of your “about” page. You are a beautiful lady! 🙂 I’m looking forward to exploring your blog.

  48. Hi Michele,

    I am so glad you found me today, and wrote your sweet comment. I can tell you and I have a lot in common. For example, your choice of backgrounds was one of my original choices on my blog. I know it’s a small thing, but it just shows how minds sometimes think alike. I look forward to learning more about you through your posts and lovely work.


  49. Hi Michelle. May I thank you so much for visiting me and liking my poem ‘ Five’. And honoured that an award winning documentary film maker would want to follow my poetry journey. Best Wishes. The Foureyed Poet

  50. Hello Michelle, thanks for dropping by and liking my blog. You have a great site here and a lovely photo of yourself.

  51. Your photographs, poetry and writing are simply and distinctively marvelous! Even at age twelve, such imagination and insight. Keep up the good work!

  52. Hi Michele, I am nominating you for the Sunshine and Versatile Blogger Awards because you are an exceptional person and I love what you do. I understand if you do not wish to accept, but I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate you.
    Lady Isis x

    1. Bless you dear Lady Isis, I am truly honored to accept two awards at once 🙂 You say such lovely things — how could I refuse you!! You made my day. By the way, I appreciate you very much. Your kindness and generosity is out of this world… Michele x

    1. Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Much appreciated. I’m delighted to hear we’re in the same creative field. I’d love to see some of your work. Hope you’re having a beautiful day. Michele

  53. Wow I’ve just read your about page. Two years ago I didn;t even know what this was. I put up one of my photos of wooden mushrooms and dedicated it to you. My song Moon Base Alpha was inspired by dreams of Jim with the astronauts in space. Will put it up next. Where do you get your energy? I’m very slow but have strong spiritual energy now that I know all about my roots within last few years only.. I LOVE the dark twiggy bush with the white light around it. Thanks for looking into my amateur blog which is just a hobby for now.

  54. I’m nominating you for the Sunshine and Versatile Blogger Awards. I love your blog and I wanted to share how much I appreciate what you do. You can find the awards on this link: http://wp.me/p3up8i-5G

    Love and hugs

  55. Hey Ms DaCosta
    Thank you for your continued support and readership.
    And I mean that.
    To have the admiration of somebody whom I in turn admire so much, well, that alone is worth a million people reading my work.
    You keep up your work
    Seeya around

    1. Wow, thank you for this wonderful surprise. Your work is incredible and it means so much to me to receive your appreciation and this nomination. I blog with passion and with the intention to inspire and make a heart connection. Your words suggest that I might be doing just that! My thanks to you once again.

  56. Elias, thank you and I miss you too… my inspirational friend. Hope you and your beloved family are in excellent health and great spirits. Is Master Tejan keeping you all entertained with his inventiveness? If you have any recent pictures of the family please send them to me. I want to see you all 🙂 Love and hugs. Michele xx

  57. I have nominated you for a Shine On Award, because you my dear really do shine. Your blog is amazing and I look forward to what I will find each day. Keep shining that light of yours into our lives.

    1. Jada, thank you so much for nominating my blog for a Shine On Award. I’m honored and truly appreciative of your kindness. I’m especially touched to hear you say, “I shine a light”. I am blessed to do the things that I love and my joy is to share and make a heart connection with kindred spirits. Thank you and have a beautiful day. Michele

  58. Wow Michele, I’ve been following you for a while but for some odd reason I never did check your About page (I usually always do before I follow someone). I guess I simply fell in love with your writing and nothing else mattered 🙂 I had no clue you were so accomplished and had done (and still do) SO much. I somehow stumbled across Jennifer’s post where you and her did a joint poem and that’s where it all happened and light was shed on your heart 🙂 I am so inspired by you and proud of you and definitely have a whole new level of respect for you. Thank you for giving me hope, and showing me that are truly GOOD people out there!!

  59. Thank you for commenting on my poem, it was just a response to someone’s remark. There are other poems on my blog which were perhaps more thought out, but sometimes perhaps the best ones are the simplest.
    I think you are an amazing woman, and I’m honoured that you stopped by.

  60. Hey there talented lady! Thanks for liking my Rumi post, and for ‘following’! Much appreciated 😉

    1. Hello Charlie, lovely to hear from you. Yes, good question, I’m intrigued by you. Cybernetic noise is one of my obsessions! And a couple of your key words resonate with me… avant-garde and surrealism. I look forward to following you as you develop and present your perspective on important subjects that are critical to our future.

      1. Looks like you’ve got something in common with cybernetics and its futurism of our cyber-culture. 🙂

        I’m going to start posting sometime next Monday my first poem in a long time. I use to post poems on wordpress, I took them down, but I will post them up again…:) You will enjoy my poetry…its not like anyone else on this wordpress community. Trust me…:)

  61. Hi Michele–thanks for introducing yourself by following our site, yours is beautiful and inspirational. It’s so wonderful to find people with such common interests this way! We think you would love India, do you hear it calling?

  62. Hey Michelle, I ran into your blog from reading your interview..NICE you were in Sierra Leon..I am a young African American male I lived a year in Panama and love traveling to different places with large black populations to find out what we all have in common and where we differ, and to explore food and culture…I loved that you made an impact out there last year and I would love to make my way to the motherland as well…thanx for being an inspiration..BLESS sista!

  63. Dear Michele,

    I can’t choose where to place my comments! EVERY poem I read, every gloriously crafted prose creation, and everything I read about your life leave me groping for superlatives. For now, allow me to simply say “Thank You” for the great honor you do me by following my “Randa Lane…” blog:

    Randa Lane blog: http://randalane.wordpress.com

    With great pleasure, I now “follow” your writing and photography!

    May peace, love, and joy attend your every step in life

  67. You definitely inspire me! Thank you for helping those in need. We need more people like you in this world. Thank you for following my blog as well.

    1. Dawn, thank you so much for your kind words. It’s a real inspiration to follow your blog. Much strength and love to you. Your story is of considerable importance and I’m so moved by all that you shared about yourself and your family. I will keep you in my thoughts. Love and blessings, Michele

  68. As a new Spikey Michele, you’ve joined a growing clan of folk known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    My aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures since the 70′s, as well as day to day happenings on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations on life as I see it. Of course, if you have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear from you, serious; email me.

    In return, I promise not to be overbearing with perhaps 2-3 posts a day tops. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again for your vote of confidence, particularly from your good self, a media ‘expert’ 🙂 and hope you have a great day…


  69. Thank you Michele for liking the curiositycafe WPC, and leading me to your place in the blogiverse, a rich, thought-provoking blend of poetry/photography. I am enchanted. Will follow your blog and look forward to viewing your art.
    ps I am commenting using rainbowspinnaker, my other blog, because I can’t “unhook” curiositycafe until next summer when I can set up a new account.
    with love and admiration

My small blog detailing experiences I have had the ability and opportunity to enjoy pales in comparison to the good works you are doing and documenting on your wonderful blog. I look forward to learning more about you and your journeys.
