I'm enjoying the PBS show Art:21 Art in the 21st Century. This is a soothing series that makes it even easier to be inspired by artists talking about their work.

The movie "Born into Brothels", though made in 2004 seems to have come to my television when I needed it. The power of the children's photography carries them much further than the schools that flatly deny their entrance. At least that is what I found myself telling the nun who said no one would take them. OK, I told the television screen. Then I thought to myself, oh yeah, I really must have forgotten this power.
