Cecilia Dinio Durkin, founder of Women’s Work located in Cold Spring, NY was introduced to me by Louise Orlando, a good friend and former colleague from Scholastic. Louise and Cecilia know each other from their travels through Africa.
Ceciia and her husband Peter take folks on personally hosted Safari’s. They have one coming up with only 4 spaces left. If anyone is interested in going on a Safari to Botswana, click here for details and don’t forget to let me know if you’re going so we can post your adventures.
Cecilia’ business is also being recognized in the Hudson region for being an innovated business within the community. She writes:
Hi All, Just thought I'd share some good news...Women's Work has been nominated by the Cold Spring Chamber of Commerce for Most Innovative Business. WW is in the company of several very prestigious and long standing orgs/businesses and I'm so honored that my tiny little shop that's barely been around for two years would be noticed...
There is a way to vote on the CS Chamber website if you are so inclined...and if you know of anyone interested in the voting, perhaps you could forward the email to them as well. Just when I am wondering if I'm doing all I can, I get a nudge that things are indeed progressing nicely. This nomination only proves that we're on the right track.
Thanks everyone for all of your support! And I'll let you know who wins!

‘AN EVENING WITH WONG KAR-WAI’
At The Times Center, Thursday, April 3, 7:00 p.m.
Wong Kar-wai came to international attention at the 1989 Cannes International Film Festival Critics’ Week with his first film, As Tears Go By. His second feature, Days of Being Wild, a period romance set in 1960s Hong Kong, established him as a master with his luminous, visually exquisite scenes of neon, nighttime, and unrequited love. This film also marked the beginning of his collaboration with Australian cinematographer Christopher Doyle and the actor Tony Leung Chiu-wai. The 1994 cult hit Chungking Express was followed by Fallen Angels, films that capture the urban energy of Hong Kong before the return to Chinese rule. At the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, Wong was awarded Best Director for Happy Together, a gay romance set in Buenos Aires, and in 2000 at Cannes, his most acclaimed film, In the Mood for Love, was awarded Best Actor for Tony Leung. My Blueberry Nights, his first English language film—starring Norah Jones, Jude Law, Natalie Portman, David Strathairn, and Rachel Weisz—will be released by The Weinstein Company on April 4.
Tickets: $25. Museum members receive a one-time special discount of $10 on tickets purchased before March 27 / Free for Sponsor-level members and above. Order advance tickets online at movingimage.us or call 718.784.4520.
