2018 has been a year I honestly didn't see coming. LOTS of pain, yet lots of growth....and a little bit of sweet bliss thrown in for good measure. I began the year with such high hopes. After all, it was an "8" year, and each one in my lifetime has been pretty amazing, so why should this one be any different? Can just imagine God looking down and smiling thinking "Silly girl...still so much to learn".
This year has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride and most days I'm not even sure what side is up. I've felt more in limbo this year than any other, and lately I've been going through a MAJOR Identity Crisis. People I thought were friends showed me a side of them I would have never fathomed. Yet those I met for the first time came into my life precisely when I needed them, even if just for a moment, to LISTEN. I have learned a LOT about PERCEPTION and understand why I chose that title for the final book in my Memoir Series. Although the book is on hold for a bit, I feel it was necessary. I've gained such a better understanding of perception over the last month and still learning.
I've become quite distraught when it comes to social media. I don't watch the news for a reason. It's so negative, and yet social media has become the same. What started out as an easy information source has turned into a platform for hatred, and I've HAD ENOUGH. Plus, anything GOOD that seems to make its way onto social media these days is all but hidden to the masses due to the ever-changing algorithm. Over the next month I will be deleting my Facebook account and perhaps some others.
I miss the days of one-on-one FACE-TO-FACE conversations. I miss sharing the good, the bad and the ugly and being compassionate for one another and supportive. I miss the encouragement and cheering one another on as we attempt new projects and set new goals. I miss the HUMAN connection.
Therefore, I've decided to go back to old school, the blog and the email.
There's SO MUCH I want to do as I work towards building a successful production company to collaborate with and support other creatives. TOWER 15 PRODUCTIONS is my baby and I have BIG DREAMS of what I want to accomplish and how I can give back and pay it forward. I'm a life-long student, but also love to teach and that's why I released my 9th book, IT'S SIMPLY FILMMAKING. It's the first of a 7-book FILM series that will serve as the basis to the educational component of my company.
I have three film projects in the works with SAVE ME SAUSALITO, PEARL and TIMING THE TIDES. I'm also writing a script for television. I feel I have a lot to offer and I know I will connect with those I'm meant to share my gifts with.
