Adviser to the Stars

Ten years ago I received a thank you note from a musician friend. In it she called me ‘Adviser to the Stars’. The note struck a chord. Yes my ego was stroked but more importantly it reminded me that I have a way of connecting with influential people. This was a turning point as, until …

Distraction

I have a problem. Distraction. My distraction is tricky. It’s sneaky, deceptive and able to shape-shift into any form. It can be an obligation to a friend, a beautiful women or an old story that still hurts to remember. Sometimes my distraction shows up as a brilliant idea that runs off with my imagination. When …

Hockey

When I stopped played hockey it was the joshing and mutual encouragement I missed the most. No matter how competitive, we all shared our collective wins and individual loses, often under the guise of a good ribbing. It was a safe way to say I love and appreciate you to each other and am grateful …

Stay Free My Friends

About fifteen years ago a very successful Producer sat me down and told me wildly entertaining and accurate stories about how the film and television industry really worked. He also told me his own story and how, at the end of the day, he was in it for one thing and one thing alone- the …

Why I Hate Douglas Coupland

It was pointed out to me this morning that it’s been awhile since I wrote something inspirational, which is true. I have several reasons. Last week I rescued a woman in her sixties, who was caught in a rip current alongside her adult son and his young daughter. My lifeguard partner brought in the other …
