Meet the Set Director For Finding Kylie

Okay - I admit - this is a hhhhhooorrrible photo of me, but I had to introduce you to my set director for the reading of Finding Kylie.

The date is set for October 3rd, and she has such vision and passion that I know it's going to turn out great!  We met for lunch today and she (upon meeting me for the first time) enveloped me in a huge hug.  I knew I loved her ... she has heart and a bright smile.

We talked about the visuals she's going to put in place and then in turn asked me about who each character was.  Not just 'what does Timothy look like?' but 'Who is he and what makes him tick?'

This way when casting they would put the right actor in place to make each character as authentic as possible.

By the questions she asked I could tell she'd poured over the script, not just perused it.  So I had to ask her ... what she thought.  Her words blew me away.  In essence, she loved it.  This is a well versed professional, who knows her stuff, and she loved the message and the writing of our script.

Now - I know it shouldn't matter if she loves it.  The project will happen with our without her approval, but to know she has put heart into it because she loves it means a whole lot more.

On Oct 3rd, we'll be filming some of it, periscoping, and taking a ton of pics.  I'll keep you posted as time draws near.


On a side note - SAVING GRACE is doing very well.  I'm blown away at the response.  So thank you to each one of you who has taken time to read it.  Heres a lovely review I received on GoodReads.  I don't know she is but she is one of my new favorite people.  If I ever meet her, I'd love to give her a big hug.  Kind words ...

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.


I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
