As you might know, the Palm Springs International Film Festival just wrapped here-- thank God, it was before we got these torrential rains we are now having! The film festival has gained even more this year in media exposure, celebrity attendance and crowds of enthusiastic film-goers, willing to wait in long lines and pay $10 per ticket! I saw two excellent films myself: "White Wedding"(from South Africa), a romantic comedy, and "Glorious 39" (from the UK), a political suspense thriller.
Here is a photo of my husband and I on the red carpet at a party organized by party meister BB Ingle at the Hotel Zoso during the film festival week. I'm wearing one of my favorite party outfits-- a silk caftan I bought on a trip to Dubai in 2008.
Jason Reitman, one of the honorees at the film festival, and the director of the new hit film "Up in the Air" starring George Clooney, proclaimed that, I quote, "There's a quiet in Palm Springs that I really enjoy and when I'm out there I find myself able to focus on writing better than I have anywhere else in the world."
I have to agree, as much as it's fun to visit LA and NYC, living in the desert is the best. The prices for homes out here sure beats coastal and city prices as well! To check it out, please visit my website: www.WendysDesertRealEstate.com.
