Who Da Pappy?

So, I’m sitting here wondering just how real this image could possibly be. A kid learns his father is someone from the neighborhood. He goes out to the area where men often gathers and says, “Who da Pappy?” holding up a picture of he and a man. All the men take off running, don’t want to assume responsibility.

Is it just me or does this NOT seem too far fetched? I’m just sayin’.

I Will Survive-and Help Others To…

Well, it’s that time again. A time when we must reassess our lives for betterment.

I am in the process of preparing for the Fall season. How about you? Life seems so redundant, dont you think? Well, with that being said, I am looking over my plans and endeavors to make sure that I still feel about them today, how I felt about them yesterday, in 2015 when I made the plans.

I am a playwright-screenplay writer-journalist-research writer struggling with Lupus. One who loves to help people, whether personally or through my nonprofit organization, People Helping People, Inc.. When things seem to be standing still or moving in circles, and even when they seem to be going very well, I have to fi an assessment of  my plan, as we know, although we plan,  there is one who plans much better than us, he being the all-knowing.

This is where I am now.  And I have found that when I assess several times throughout the year, be it a random assessment or a quarterly assessment, sort of like a tune-up or fine-tuning my plans or goals, endeavors, things turns out much better and I find myself that much further ahead.

Today though, I must do more than see if  I’m on track to move ahead. Inching along will never do. Although I have been blessed with some great opportunities I need to seize the day. I need to be able to write in all the genres I love, direct plays & film from time to time, sell my film scripts and  in between all of this, help people along the way. Is that too much to ask for?

Well, it’s me. It’s my goal, it’s me life, it’s Andrea. When I submitted in the past to Lupus and any other health issue, life as we know it, people ir anything holding me back,  I fell into depression and became sicker to the point I thought I was on my death bed. When a publicist told me that if I don’t pull out of it I will die and have none of my books published none of my film scene and none of my work enjoy it by the masses I snapped out of it and I began my journey and although it is hard sometimes trying to be recognized among many, I still keep forward, marching ahead, knowing that through the other great talents and…I will have my day. I will achieve. I will progress much further than the road I see ahead. I will be the writer of sorts who also endulges in other areas of entertainment; who helps people; who lives, not survives, but lives through life and all of its woe.

What about you? Do you self-assess? Where does it take you?

Everday’s a Good Day

Yaaaaass, you woke up this morning so, I think it’s safe to say that today is a good day. It’s best we start looking at it like that, because crap will happen regardless. So every opportunity to see today as being anything but a blessed day is just asking for trouble, even when that customer service rep was mean and nasty to you when you made your first phone call. Grrrrrrr! Let’s shake that off though, they can’t have our good energy.

Smile, it’s your day, your life. Read a book, preferably one of mine, lol. OK, lets get on with this day. Catch this cyber peace sign I’m sending you as I call out, “PEACE!”

MURPHY’S LAW: Group Therapy Gone Wild

Bow333

Looking forward to another production of Murphy’s Law: Group Therapy Gone Wild.

We workshopped the play December 6, 2014 and received great feedback. As I went back to the table and began making alterations to the script, I pictured each of the cast and the wonderful job they did and, it wasn’t easy, but it wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be, to cut the play down to size.

I cut a bit of the script and added a bit. We’re doing more with lights and sound. We’ve bought a few folk on board who have experience on the production end, so I’m ecstatic. Oh what a blessing to be able to work with this talented bunch of cast & crew.  You’re all in for a great show. For now, take a look at a few pictures from our last production.

Is Whoopi Wrong for Wanting More Proof

Hello everyone. I know it’s been a while but never fret, I’m baaaack., And guess what story prompts my return?

I just watched Whoopi on The View who states she would like to make an informed and educated judgement and doesn’t feel there’s enough on the matter to do so. Where some would say that this was responsible, others evidently feel otherwise and have gone as far as to threaten her per Whoopi. I’m asking, can we measure what is enough proof for another to form an opinion?

I honestly know how she feels. It’s been a looooooooooong time that these women have not come forward, regardless of the reason (and I’m not saying this is how Whoopi feels), but the story is a lot to take in and there’s more we don’t know. Considering how old he is and when this is taking place in his life, one should consider more before condeming Mr. Cosby. And don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t look good, just keeping it real, but, the law is the law. And we can’t take matters in our own hands and pass judement all over the place.

This is just my 2 cents. What about yours?
