Day 24- What's an every day blog like?

 

It's kinda hard to do, because some days, you don't have much to say....

 

Day 23- I don't forget anything, pretty much, but I look forward to what I don't know yet, too

 

If you zoom into this photo, and read the metal plate, you will learn about one of the parts of my life that I will never forget. Well, it's hard to forget over forty years of your life, but, even if this part of my life had just been a few weeks, these people, and all of the people connected to them, and so much of what happened during the years that I was connected to them, are all completely and absolutely, unforgettable...

 

Day 22- Close your eyes... AFTER you read this, and be brave and specific enough to dream.

 

I think it’s really important to visualize. To try and “see” what you want, in your minds eye. To close your eyes from time to time and look directly at where you are going. To actually see yourself there....

 

Day 21- I got out of town for some air and some goodness...

 

...today, I felt like I needed some air, and some good feelings, and so I got up early, got my running gear on, headed out to my car, and drove up to Ramapo Reservation, this amazing place in Mahwah, NJ...

 

Day 20-You have to find your happy place amidst all the madness that life brings

 

I don't know much, but I have learned this over the years... when things pile up, as they can in life from time to time, you need to re-group and find your happy, calm and centered place, otherwise chaos will ensue, and that's not a good thing...

 

Day 19.5- I'm tired

 

I know I said I would add to my post this morning, but I'm beat down from a really long day, that started at 3:45am and got me home in my apartment now, at 9:21pm, and so...

 

Day 19- Working on my mind, and making sure it is fully connected to my body...

 

It's 5:12am in NYC, I'm gonna write more about this later today, but I just wanted to say GOOD MORNING!! See you back here later tonight, when I get back home..... #LoveJustIs

 

Day 18- no photo, because I'm not feeling like sharing one, and a lot of words here... a lot...

 

It’s funny writing here sometimes, because I really have no way of knowing if anyone is reading any of these posts. On social media, I know when people are reading me, or looking at my photos, etc, but here, in my own, private space, I really have no way of knowing. I mean, maybe there are ways to find out, but I don’t know how to do any of that, and so, I just don’t know. But I find myself writing anyway. I don’t know if this is good, or if it’s bad. If it makes sense, or if it makes me weird. Or crazy. Who, exactly, am I writing to? What difference does it really make if I write anything, anyway? I mean, this is just kind of odd, right? Yeah...

 

Day 17- Every so often, I give stuff away, but you have to visit me here to know that.

 

 

every so often, I give things away, but I don't advertise it. You have to just run across it, simply because you happened to be visiting my site, and so, thank you for that, always, and keep coming back, because you might get a free CD, or ebook, or Haiku booklet, or script, or in the case of today, you can watch the entire Brooklyn Quartet mini series, meaning all four episodes, on YouTube... 

 

Day 16- Working toward more of this, every single day of my life... like Shakespeare.

Day 15- What do you believe in, and do you actually even believe in yourself?

 

You live a certain kind of way. You make decisions every day of your life. Choices. You lean towards what makes you most comfortable. And the days go by, and then months, and then years, and all of that is the accumulation of who you become...

 

Day 14- Change is good, just like NYC.

 

... NYC has always been about change. Just like life. It's forever changing, every second of every day, it's all new. Whether you like it or not, this is fact...

 

Day 13- I'm busy, but I'm here. And if you know me, you know this...

 

"Ain't all the busy in the world can keep you from reaching out to someone you really care about....

 

Day 12- Reminiscence and looking ahead, all at the same time, in just a few words

 

"... With regards to this particular play of mine, called Brooklyn Quartet, perhaps the most meaningful part of my five year journey of working on this show was my relationship with Sean Bell's family..."

 

Day 11- Sometimes I'm quiet... Often times, actually...

Day 10- Here's to the people who you want to keep...

 

Sometimes things happen that we don't expect. As a matter of fact, every day things happen that we don't expect...

 

Day 9- Being an artist, and respect, and acknowledgement, and those we love...

 

Being an artist… I think one of the most difficult parts of being an artist is your relationships. Who is in your life? And how do they deal with you and your art? Do they even know what you do? Do they respect you? Do they support you? Really? ...

 

Between day 8 and day 9... Sometimes I also like to share brilliance that happened live...

 

This was Pink, at the 52nd Grammy awards, in 2010. I just love it so much when an artist takes risks. When they stretch it out. I'm inspired by that. That is brilliance to me. Or maybe I should say that THIS is brilliance to me...

 

Day 8- The irony of art sometimes. Finding where to put a story, and how that can be sobering.

 

"... The earth is beautiful. All of it. Even the dangerous parts. Even the parts where bad things happen..."

 

Day 7- no photo, just your imagination, and just a few words... Some days be like that.

 

I’m working on a TV show today...

 

Day 6- Real life relationships are everything for me... <click "like"> ... oops, not here...

 

I think we need to take our relationships more seriously....

 

Between day 5 and day 6.. sometimes I like to share new music that I find.... at least new to me.

 

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas O'Connell are so dope, and so, take a moment from your life, and listen, and you're welcome... 

 

Day 5- Always trying to make the most of what I have...

 

...a hopefully productive day, a day to allow my body to heal and rejuvenate, my mind to expand, receive and rest...

 

Day 4- Why do people continue to randomly hate other people?

 

Today I’m thinking about the sobering fact that Jewish people in Germany have been warned against wearing a yarmulke in public, (that’s the little “skull cap” that some Jews wear, which can obviously be identifying) because it might compromise their safety...

 

Day 3- W Kamau Bell is one of my heroes, and DC, and real talk, and love.

 

Kamau Bell is one of my heroes. If you don't know him, he's a comedian and a journalist/commentator who works for CNN, and he's just a regular person who happens to be brilliant and filled with all kinds of empathy.

 

Day 2- What's my point?

 

"To do my best, and that requires some sacrifice, and a whole lot of commitment, and those are things that I have always been really good at..."

 

Day 1- My first day away from social media, and what I'm doing with all of this time...

 

So today is my first day away from social media,

 

My hiatus from Facebook and Instagram, but I'm still here...

 

Today is my mother's birthday. Today is the day I begin a long hiatus from social media, or at least from Facebook and Instagram, for a few different reasons...
