Becca, a regular here at, is not just a poet and haikuist. She is also a filmmaker. Here’s how she and her kids spent a perfectly good summer day.

Director’s Commentary:

When our family first started talking about the making of a Feechie Film, there was some heated discussion about which of us would have the privilege of running around in the yard in a loin cloth and attacking the 6-foot alligator. We’re not sure what this says about the job we’ve done as parents.

In the end, preference was given to the littlest. Why? Because even though he’s the cutest, he was going to attack the alligator no matter what. So, we caved.

That’s good cinema right there. Thanks, Becca and family.
