Thank you to my nephew Chris Minnick who surprised me today with a drawing. He is self taught and has been practicing – so he thought he would draw a picture of me as he saw me – a Hollywood producer.
I love this picture and I will keep it up on my website. It inspires me to keep working for what I love and for what I believe in. Thank you Chris – your uncle is proud of you!
Today, in celebration of Earth Day, the Wayfarers Chapel in Palos Verdes had their second annual art show and poetry reading called ‘Art by the Sea with Poetic Expression‘. Yours truly was a feature poet invited to read. I haven’t been an invited poet in over 15 years (if not more.) Attending today felt like coming out of retirement – and I am grateful for my friend Georgia Washington for asking me to be a part of the event.
The weather today was a wonderful 72 degrees with a slight breeze as we saw Catalina Island hiding out in the distant haze. The waves crashed towards as we stood up over the high cliff. It was an amazing inspiring day and I was grateful to be a part of the festivities today!
Also after the reading today I have decided to move forward and being writing my second book. I want to write a book that is full of anthems, that can inspire people and up lift them! That’s why it’s been so hard to write. I want it to be epic!
Check out the video from this amazing day!
