Green lighting a great story

Boardz Drag posterI love movies, especially those with a great script.   When I can carve out some free time, it’s spent at the movies or on my sofa watching television, transported by the story unfolding before my eyes.

My friend Shed has a wonderful, original story to tell, rich with complex characters and situations drawn from his personal experience  – as an officer of the law and as a father – that he’s working to make reality.  Boardz Drag is the story of Ricky Sims, a police officer who idolized his dad, Conrad who was a police officer killed in the line of duty. This story sounds typical, but it’s not.  However, it will be for the viewer to decide.  The objective, now, is to secure financing to bring this story to the screen.  Watch the teaser and tell us what you think.  Thanks for your time.

We Will Survive!

Cancer Survivors Tribute in the Houston Galleria Mall.

On Saturday, June 4, the Houston Galleria mall was mobbed – flash mobbed- by an explosion of  pink power as more than 100 breast cancer survivors, our friends and family members performed a dance tribute  to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day.  I was in the mix dancing as disco diva Gloria Gaynor sang her timeless hit, ‘I Will Survive. ” 

Much of the love and gratitude goes to Houston philanthropists Lester and Sue Smith, whose organization    is dedicated to finding a cure for breast cancer.

It was an exhilarating experience to be among women like me, who are  not just surviving but loving life and beating cancer, one day at a time.  And the lyrics to Ms. Gaynor’s song will always be with me: ‘as long as I know how to love, I know I will survive. I’ve got all my life to live, I’ve got all my love to give, I will survive . . . I will survive.’
