Menlo Park woman, seriously injured in a truck accident, is featured in a new documentary film

elissa Moody squints as she stares out toward the water at Ocean Beach in San Francisco, against a backdrop of gray. This is where she married Hap Wotila. But she isn’t thinking about her wedding — she’s thinking about how lucky she is to still be alive. “This is fun. I haven’t stood out in the rain for a while,” she says, turning to the lens. The camera is photographing a scene from a new 78-minute documentary on the nature of happiness by filmmaker Roko Belic, who traveled to 14 countries, collecting narratives of happiness and depression, in a four-year endeavor. Those who have seen the documentary say the story of this Menlo Park resident is among the most powerful, Mr. Belic says. Ms. Moody, a mother of three, was trampled by a truck when visiting

relatives in the Texas countryside in July 1992. The accident left her face completely disfigured. She underwent 30 reconstructive surgeries. “When I met Melissa, I knew she had experienced something that was traumatic, and the way she dealt with it was completely different than what I would have expected,” says Mr. Belic, who was nominated for an Academy Award for his directorial debut, “Genghis Blues,” in 1999. According to social scientists interviewed in the film, those who endure hardships recover more quickly than we expect and may even be happier because of a traumatic event — especially if they tended to be happy before it occurred. One of the main ingredients for happiness, the sociologists and psychologists say, is having meaningful relationships. Although she is happy today, Ms. Moody, now 59, went through many

very difficult years. She said her family and friends helped her get through the depression caused by the accident. “I’ve always been a gregarious person. I always had a core group of friends” to help me through, she says. “I didn’t let (the accident) stop me (from going out). It wasn’t my fault so why would I let that stop me?” In the film, Mr. Belic shows her giving a massage to a client at San Francisco’s School for Self-Healing, where she is the director of education and development. She was treated there in 1999 for her vision impairment caused by the accident, and she stayed on as a volunteer and later joined the staff. Then the film takes us to the scene of the accident. We see her treading over a muddy road in Texas, pointing to where she was having an argument with her See MELISSA, page 23

How

‘A Time to Heal’

tragedy

Melissa Moody has a private practice in massage therapy in Menlo Park, as well as at the School of Self-Healing in San Francisco. She teaches vision-care classes at Stanford to university and hospital employees, and the classes are now open to the public. She is writing a book about her story and the healing process, and has written a book of poetry, “A Time to Heal.� “It was a means to access the pain I was in and heal and release from it,� she says. Ms. Moody invites people to contact her by email (mistymoody@mac.com) with any questions.

sister-in-law, who then drove off while Ms. Moody’s hand was stuck in a door handle of the truck. She was trampled under the wheels of the truck. The documentary shows flashes of her wounds from the accident, with patches of screaming red flesh, a swollen forehead, and what remained of her nose. Returning to the accident scene “brought the reality of the moment back to me — all the reality and the sadness,� says Ms. Moody. The accident brought with it a trail of problems that threatened to weigh her down for the rest of her life. “There are many points when I wanted to die, commit suicide,� she says, but she would buy herself time by remembering her children needed her. Four years after the accident, her husband divorced her. Disabled, she was left with no income and no possibility of finding a job. After doctors pieced together her crushed bones, and a failed surgery left her at the brink of blindness, they told her there was little hope for further physical recovery. But despite doctors’ diagnoses, she was able to return to work and, 19 years after her accident, she says she is happier than she has ever been. “She, like everyone, is still susceptible to hardship,� but the accident pushed her to live more profoundly, says Mr. Belic. Quiet reflection was forced upon her by the physical pain. As she lay in the hospital bed, she could only listen to harp and flute-based music because any other form of distraction was too disorienting, she says. Whenever she felt angry, her body would tense up and hurt. She had double-vision, so she couldn’t read or watch television. She heard about a treatment for vision impairment, called CranioSacral therapy, by Dr. Meir Schneider, at the School for Self-Healing in San Francisco. She flew there from Texas. “It was serendipity,� she says. “I was divorced, I had no income, but I had some (airline) miles.�

The therapy involved a variety of exercises, such as walking back and forth with a piece of black paper taped to her forehead. The paper blocked her forward vision but helped her regain peripheral vision. One of her homework assignments was to get a boyfriend. Hap Wotila was a long-time friend, and the only person she knew in the Bay Area, so she gave him a call. “She said, ‘I’ll be down at the beach at 5 o’clock doing my vision exercises,’� he says. “So I parked my vehicle and there she was with her pants rolled up, the sun was going down. I thought, ‘This is a striking picture.’� Five years later, they married. They are very social and meet friends often, he says. The filmmaker, Mr. Belic, said he is convinced that social relation-

ships are a key element of happiness. “What I saw is that in places like the slums in Calcutta, people do not have any measure of success,� he says. “What I saw, instead, was that people had a strong sense of community. Their purpose in life

was being part of something bigger than themselves: Being as good as they can be among their friends and families.� At a recent showing of the film in San Francisco, Ms. Moody says, more than 50 friends showed up. After the showing, she went onstage

to participate in a question-andanswer session. When she stepped off the stage, her friends flocked to greet her, and she showed everyone how happy she really is. A

RESOLUTION OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF THE SERVICE OF PERRY VARTANIAN WHEREAS, Perry Vartanian has been a resident of Woodside Hills for over fifty years, and

One of Cal Water’s service areas is the Bear Gulch District, which is located in San Mateo County. The Bear Gulch District serves the Cities of Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside, portions of Menlo Park, and adjacent unincorporated portions of San Mateo County including; West Menlo Park, Ladera, North Fair Oaks, and Menlo Oaks.

WHEREAS, during that time he has served for twenty-eight years as a member of the board of directors of Woodside Hills Homes Association, Inc., of which twenty-five years has been consecutive service; and

As a defined urban water supplier, Cal Water is preparing an update to its Urban Water Management Plan that will address the water service conditions in the Bear Gulch District. It is Cal Water’s intent to adopt that plan and file that plan as required with the Department of Water Resources, the California State Library, and any city or county within which Cal Water provides service.

WHEREAS, he has also served as an officer of Woodside Hills Homes Association, Inc., for many of those years, most recently as treasurer; and

A key focus of this UWMP update is the conservation requirement set forth in Senate Bill 7 (SBx7-7) as passed in November 2009. SBx7-7 mandates a statewide 20% reduction in per capita urban water use by 2020. In order to quantify the objectives and identify the means of achieving this mandated demand reduction, Cal Water has prepared a Conservation Master Plan.

WHEREAS, the members of Woodside Hills Homes Association, Inc., wish to acknowledge this extraordinary service to their community;

Cal Water is in the process of expanding current conservation programs and developing new programs for its 24 districts. Over the next five years, Cal Water conservation program expenditures are likely to increase due in large measure to recently adopted state policies requiring future reductions in per capita urban water use. These state policies include SBx7-7, as well as recent decisions by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) directing Class A and B water utilities to adopt conservation programs and rate structures designed to achieve reductions in per capita water use, as well as the Memorandum of Understanding Regarding Urban Water Conservation in California (MOU), of which Cal Water has been a signatory since 1991.

NOW,THEREFORE, IT IS RESOLVED, that this community offers their gratitude and admiration for the many years of loyal and diligent service by Perry Vartanian as a director and officer of Woodside Hills Homes Association, Inc., and it wishes him many years of health and enjoyment as their neighbor in Woodside Hills; and

Menlo School competes in mock trial Menlo School beat state champion Hillsdale High School in the final round of the San Mateo County Mock Trial Championship, held in February. This is the third time in the last four years that Menlo School has won the county event, said Menlo School spokesperson Jill Kasser. In March, the 25-student Menlo School team headed to the state championship in Irvine, California, where the team made it to the quarterfinals and garnered two commendations: Marjory Marquard won for best pretrial and Julia Heimark for best court clerk. In mock trials, students play various roles within a courtroom. The topic of this year’s case was cyber-bullying and the First Amendment. The trial dealt with the issue of whether the new antibullying statute unlawfully prohibits protected speech, Ms. Kasser said. The competition is organized by the Constitutional Rights Foundation, which aims to encourage youth to be active participants in society. Craig Heimark is the attorney and head coach for the Menlo School team, and Dan Devitt is the teacher sponsor.

M-A boys tennis tennis goes 42-0 Submitted by team parent Angela Sherry. The Menlo-Atherton High boys’ tennis team finished its league season by defeating Aragon High, 7-0, at M-A’s courts on April 14, clinching the Bears’ third consecutive Peninsula Athletic League championship. The team’s league record over the last three years stands at 42-0. With the loss of five senior starters, coaches Tom Sorenson and Carlos Aguilar had looked at this season as a rebuilding year. However, as thin as the troops are this year, stellar play has given the Bears a record-setting season no one expected. The players include seniors Cam Kelley and Daniel Windham; juniors Matt Giordano, Zeke Brown, and Jesse and Christian Perkins; sophomore Richey Sarwal; and freshmen Scott Morris and Nick Fratt, With their league title, the Bears have earned an automatic bid to the Central Coast Section playoffs.

Woodland’s girls hoops teams take honors Submitted by Anita Grossman, development director, Woodland School, Portola Valley. Woodland School’s Varsity B and Fifth Grade Basketball Teams took top honors in the 2011 Athletic League Girls Varsity Basketball Championship tournament games, held March 10 at Sacred Heart Schools in Atherton and Pinewood School in Los Altos Hills. Woodland’s Varsity B team was matched against the undefeated St. Matthews Episcopal Day School, a team boasting a record of 17 wins and 0 losses over the last two years. Woodland took an early lead and led throughout most of the game, but with less than a minute to go in the fourth quarter, the St. Matthews team tied the score at 27-27. In the last 10 seconds, Woodland’s Morgan Corona scored a one-point free throw, winning the game 28-27. Woodland’s Fifth Grade Girls Basketball Team faced Harker School in its third and final game of the tournament. Through a combination of relentless defense and a never-give-up attitude on offense, Woodland jumped out to a double-digit lead and never looked back, securing third place in the tournament. Woodland, a preschool through eighth-grade private day school in Portola Valley, participates in the West Bay Athletic League and Small School Intermediate League. Jason Schneider is acting athletic coach.
