The Actions of Now

…are creating the future. And I am grateful that I can preschedule this post. ‘Cause I don’t think I’ll want to do it tomorrow. isn’t that the rub? so much promised and so little energy to do anything about it all. so much to do (about nothing). a passerby said to me, nonchalantly, you seem…

Look On in Anger

I am grateful for the opportunity to direct a piece I wrote a few decades ago. I’m really grateful for all the strong, powerfully positive energy people are bringing to the project. Sweet dreams.

My Readers

When I was a child, living with my parents, we did not have a TV in the house; this was my parents choice. My parents did not want a television in the house so I read a lot of books. I developed a love for reading that I still have today. I am currently reading…

3 / Three

This past weekend was a three day weekend. In the United States we celebrate “President’s Day”. When I was a child going to school we had two separate days off in February; one for President Washington’s birthday and one for President Lincoln’s birthday. Now they just combine the two into one because there are so…

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.

Travel Much….

I am grateful that I do not mind driving…too much. I probably mind the knuckleheads who are on the road with me more than I mind the miles and time spent driving. I am grateful that I don’t mind driving because I will drive the distance, occasionally, to spend time with a person that I…

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…

Good drink

This past Saturday I helped a neighbor celebrate his Seventieth birthday. We sat on his boat, talking and drinking a really good Irish whiskey. This was after spending a lazy Saturday afternoon with my wonderful partner. I am grateful for this wonderful life and beautiful opportunities.

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…

Team Efforts

Being a former soccer player, coach and now I officiate, I know what “Team Effort” means.   As great as Pele, Messi and Ronaldo are or were, they never single-handily won a game or tournament; they had ten other players, coaches and support personnel helping them. I feel very grateful that I have a wonderful team…

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…

Helping Hands

Today I am grateful for all of the people who help me in this life. Some of these people barely know me if they know me at all; but they are told by someone or some divine power that they should help me. Then there is my family and friends who I know that offer…
