Another Day: Done

I am grateful for the bed I shall fall into when this post posts. I am grateful for so many more things… But right now? I am so tired.

A Toast to the Future

I am very grateful for the opportunity to work with people on an original script I wrote in the 90’s. I hope I am not hallucinating; it seems we all are enthusiastically pursuing the same goal… put on a fuckin’ show!! …with grit, and feeling, and purpose, and Save the Dates: April 7th and April…

Whew!

Tonight I am grateful for a conversation I had with a gentleman that also would like to see lasting changes occur for students of color — that they can see before this year is over. It is such an uphill climb; it is crazy how difficult it is to change the status quo… with people…

sober off this

I am grateful for GHD. Tonight I heard Mo’Nique talk about the power of partnership; to have someone with you that let’s you know you’re not crazy. “Hey, baby, you got this! Let’s go!” I realized I do not have that. The one I walk with, trusting in that I’m not crazy—is G-D. And the…

Idle Hands

I am grateful that I have no time for idle hands… if you see me wasting time; slap me I agreed to come onboard as production manager for a short shooting in March. we had our first official class for Drama 143 that accumulates in live performances of Look On in Anger; I play I…

When You Decide to Give Us No Money

I am grateful for the work co-producer/co-host, Marc Wendt, and I have done with our podcast, Moped Outlaws. I just was checking out our third episode; we’ve come a long way, baby! The title of this post is derived from something I say early in the third episode. Marc and I are about five minutes…

An Extraordinary Machine

Today I am grateful for my body; it acted appropriately today. I had inhaled a giant of a pill, one half a dose of a supplement I take daily. And believe me — these pills are ginormous! I struggle to swallow them on a good day. And today…? Today, the one went down the wrong…

Early and Easy

Some days just take a lot. So tonight, I am grateful that I can retire early. Tomorrow is a new day. Take it early and get busy. Tonight? Settle into a smooth groove… Call it a day (after I walk the dog).

The Mountaintop

Tonight, I am grateful for Hope. It springs from friends and family. It is divinely divined by those in tune with the moon, who can feel the tidal surges: ebbs and flows. And it is shared with me, for which, I am grateful.

Mi Madre

I am grateful for my mother. She brought a lot into my life… one of those things is a great love for music of all genres. Believe me, in my teens, I attempted to play music that would bother her – or, better yet, bug the shit out of her. I never found anything that…

Mushroom Hi

I give up. I know nothing. I am permanently fixed upon the precipice, continually teetering on the edges of disaster. I thought I was beyond needing to deal with the pain of lost dreams; weathered feathers falling. Ashes of burnt-out dreams. It is not the dreams that create pain, bringing it back to feeling —…

And Sew; Pockets For Holding Things

And so we start again Another year; another verse I keep trying to heal Keep heading into the worst I’m not worried I’m not afraid Before I was possessed On my knees, I prayed And oceans of emotions Will keep rockin’ me I will keep sailing On this endless sea Tonight I’m grateful for you…
