I am an independent writer/producer currently wrapping up an action-drama movie and a children's book. Along with the creative projects, I have also been working in an unrelated field while still focusing on the acquisition of finished and unfinished independent movies, screenplays and manuscripts. Lately, I have been spending a lot of my spare time working with first time writers by helping them to develop, enhance or sell their written material.
When I am able, I attend various film festivals and performing arts/entertainment conventions and events. I also enjoy traveling at a moment’s notice, staying at great hotels, chance situations, the desert, the beach, community events, pet shows and concerts.
This whole internet dating protocol with all its’ titles and restrictions of “must be looking for this or must not be looking for that” is so sad and disheartening. If our parents would have put up these restrictive road blocks to basic communication, most of us would not have been born. It is no wonder that there are so many lonely people out there not in any type of relationship at all and just vegetating all alone as the best years of their lives just fade away. There is more to life than just raising kids and maintaining a career…..at least I hope so. I sure do miss that not so distant time when people attempted to touch on a more real and personal level – good or bad, but real. The risk of failure and heart ache is much better than the consolation of fear and numbness.
At times, I travel to various places in the United States and abroad. I will be attempting to unofficially retire in less than 4 years and relocate, at least for the winter months, to a warmer climate. It blows my mind when I run across profiles of people who have closed the door to chance and destiny by restricting someone from even sending them a message because that person’s base residence is more than 75 miles away from them. I want to believe that there is some sliver of reality in all those romantic destiny type movies that I have seen over the years and will always embrace the enigma of the circumstances of fate.
