Shelter / Elf

just watched this movie, Shelter, and really liked it – sweet, gentle, real movie – indie i think.   IMDB is funny: “When his college dreams are sidelined by family obligations, a young man finds comfort in surfing with his best friend’s brother.”  um…   he realizes he’s gay, falls in love, adopts his nephew, gets a scholarship to art school and they all go off to live happily ever after in Los Angeles leaving behind his needy family.    anyway, it’s a beautiful movie.

and we started off the evening by watching Elf – our family tradition…   Zev knows every line of the movie by now.  He “owns” it – just found out that they showed it at school on his last day; i hope he wasn’t speaking up and predicting the lines!

Director of Research, Training and Development, Spectrum Society for Community Living. As well as being responsible for in-house training and research on best practices in the field of helping people with disabilities organize their supports, I support self advocacy groups, contract to provide training and workshops to other agencies and groups and facilitate inclusive research groups. I am the author/illustrator of three books, co-editor of a new anthology for 2012, and co-editor of Spectrum Press. My passion is creating networks of best practice leaders in our field to share person-centred alternatives in how people with disabilities can be facilitated to live lives where their gifts are necessary components in their communities. I am currently half way through a Masters degree in Interdisciplinary studies, focusing on Equity and Adult Education, and particularly on how people with intellectual disabilities may be supported in participatory leadership groups.
