You Are A God

When you woke up this morning, you may not have thought about it.  As you hurry through your day, you may, for a moment, forget it.  But know it is always true — You are a god.  A wonder.  A perfect spiritual being living out a divine destiny. AND YOU KICK ASS. Too often we judgeContinue reading “You Are A God”

Publishing My First Book

When I decided to get serious, to stop planning and start doing this year, my first goal was a writing one.  I decided to self-publish three books in the next year — crazy?  Yes.  But who wants to do anything halfway?

A Writer’s ‘Most Enjoyable’ TV Shows List

I put the question of this ‘top ten’ to my sister, with the stipulation of ‘most enjoyable’.  The reason was not to exclude hard-to-watch dramas but rather to alleviate the fears that one would have in creating a BEST list.  So this is really about my favorites, not the ones I believe should be onContinue reading “A Writer’s ‘Most Enjoyable’ TV Shows List”

“You Can’t Get Firefly by Rebooting Bonanza.”

My sister Sarah said the above quote and I thought it was so true. We live in a swirling media storm of sequels, re-boots, re-imaginings, prequels, adaptations, updates, and spin-offs.  Our summer movie slates are full of sequels and three-quells and our fall movie schedules are full of play and book adaptations.  The new seasonContinue reading ““You Can’t Get Firefly by Rebooting Bonanza.””
