Hello….Miami Motel Stories

THe other night a group of about 30 plus THEATER PEOPLE gathered at a delapitated soon to be remodeled MOTEL on Biscayne Blvd in Miami FLorida.

We were meeting and greeting about a new production that Juggernut is doing and I was in awe of it all.

IT is a huge production with original concepts and scripts and an array of actors that just blew my mind..

I was not excited nor bored I was peaceful I was HOME and in that I realized that sometimes you have to leave everything you know at the door and enter through the kitchen and smell the seasonings to ever really truly love love love your life.

I was one of the oldest people in the room but I was beyond thankful…One actor I had known since I first moved back to mIami in 1999/2000- He told me that if I was going to marry Steve I would end up leaving acting…
He was right…I did…I left I raised kids and I built a marriage and now I am here….sitting near this fortune teller knowing I CHOSE my path and although I have a few more lines on my face and a few more cracks in the heart I am more alive than I have ever been and my acting…well…I am bringing a hole new journey and I think it is going to be amazing..

Hello…kids

My two boys attend summer camp. Not the whole summer but enough. When I see them after the four weeks it is as though I just saw them. I just dropped them off walked around the corner and came right back and in that time they had a million memories I will never really know anything about.

It is the space inbetween that build their perception of life and you hope they adjust and focus on what makes a day beautiful. That somehow you have offered them the ability to slide in a glow filter on the moments – and without being there…by their side when they get nailed in the eye from a lacrosse stick or getting a base hit in their baseball tournament helping them solidify the memeroy..you just hope ..

Hello….Shark Tank

Yesterday was about 5 years since we originally aired on the show. Last night we aired again.WHY? I think it is a sign. I think everything is a sign. A soft nudge saying come on little girl try again. I had just yesterday morning posted the bib simplified ( sans embrodery and tag) on Etsy. I wanted to do it alone…in a way..see if I could restart the conversation at a more receiving time in history.
No need to explain why the product is made well and last forever. Maybe the new parents are primed to find a non label sustainable product helpful and spread it amongst themselves. THe last few times I have brought it out it was an education issue..as they mentioned on Shark Tank..That is NOT the issue anymore..and not since no one else sells our bibs but me and no one else has the patent but me and no one else cared to knock us off..may as well give it a go. Not to make millions, not to save myself or my family not to prove a point to well not to validate myself but perhaps to return to the game with a better attitude and perspective.
I so wish I could get my hand on the cut footage of my Shark Tank show. I woudl love to explain how much of it was REAL and how much of it was cut together to make it look as it was. I am not complaining…we made good TV the SHarks and Steve and I but it was and always will be TV.

DO you have things in your life that play these types of games with you. YO try to let them go but they keep knowckinng at your door no matter what you do.
