Janina unplugged

The other day I was meandering around town taking photos for a promotional website I'm doing. Then I spotted Janina. We met about five years ago when I cast her as the lead in a play I was directing. She's a phenomenal actress with the breath and depth of a Tennesssee William's character. After all, she was born and raised in New Orleans and has lived a life full of creative, serendipitous and worldly-wise predicaments. The play, by the way, won the Festival's People's Choice Award.

I found her this day chatting in Market Square with her friend David. She had just undergone surgery a few days earlier and learned of her terminal pancreatic cancer. Here she is, in classic Janina form, telling me the story of her ordeal. No need for a soundtrack.
