Aspen, Colorado is known not only for it’s spectacular landscape but also for the incredible festivals that grace our valley, bringing culture, intellect and entertainment to all of us who could not live here without it.

Personally, coming from New York City, I would have gone bonkers and left a long time ago if it weren’t for the festivals such as; Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, the Aspen Idea’s Festival, Aspen Film and The Aspen Music Festival and School. In fact I worked for many of them before making babies.

And now, I am so excited to give back to these organizations and interview the incredible people behind them. Please meet Laura Thielen, the Artistic Director for Aspen Film. I worked for Laura when I was the Hospitality Coordinator for Aspen Shortsfest and I can tell you that she is a wonderful, intelligent woman who is completely passionate and devoted to bringing incredible films to Aspen and joining our valley together as a community to watch and discuss them.

Enjoy my interview with Laura, and if you haven’t already, hurry up and buy your tickets to Aspen Filmfest 2010, what are you waiting for? The festival began last night and will be going on through October 3rd. I know I’ll be there.

Aspen Real Life

The colors are changing early due to the drought but they sure are vibrantly popping out through the haze blowing in from the California fires. Nature keeps giving.

FROM CBS: Because the color change is driven primarily by daylight, the colors are guaranteed change regardless of other factors like drought. But according to Forest Entomologist Dr. Dan West at the Colorado State Forest Service, “the drought could cause colors to peak days earlier than usual and the intensity of the color may be diluted compared to years when precipitation is adequate”. “This is because dry conditions stress aspen stands”, says West.

As of August 27, more than 90% of Colorado is experiencing at least severe drought including the entire Denver metro area. And about 35% of the state is experiencing extreme drought including many mountain areas.
