There are some bits “in the can” as they say. Thank you to everyone who came out for our filming at the beautiful Mary D. Fisher Theatre. You were a great audience and played your part well. I am grateful for all the kind support of my Sedona friends, thank you for sharing the evening with me.
My gratitude as well to a great team of professionals from The Myss Miranda Agency and a special thanks to my director Mindy Mendelsohn. Generous and talented, it is such a treat to work with people who are dedicated and passionate about their art.

TOM’S One for One … a solvable crisis
“World Sight Day is a day of celebration, when we light not candles, but hearts of compassion” – Dr. Chundak
Sight is a fundamental need. The loss of sight has a dramatic impact on a person’s life and on his or her family and community. Last year the SEVA foundation and the global TOMS community banned together to recognize visual impairment and blindness as a critical global issue. 80% of visual impairment can be prevented or cured with available solutions.
Join us again this year on 10/11/12 to spread awareness. The more people who know, the more we can work toward solving this crisis.
