A Leap of Faith

My amazing farewell cake from my Plaza family. ~ Dori Ann

Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith, especially in the closing moments when you feel it's now or never, and "the moment" could be so "sweet".

Dori Ann is my client, friend, neighbor, the woman who sponsored my workshop last month, and an amazingly spiritual person. We met 20 years ago when she was 18 and in all that time she has wanted to move away from her office job and into media production full time. Slowly but surely, things came together through the years and Dori Ann worked both careers side by side. Then something happened this spring - an inner knowing that she is ready to walk away from her "day job" and pursue her dreams. And so, after almost 20 years at the same job, she gave notice two months ago, and left yesterday. It wasn't easy to go or to be replaced after one works at a job so long ... one job description blending into another ... taking 4 people to replace her.

So here she is embracing the energies of her new life. It all begins next Friday night at the Cherry Lane Theatre - New York City's oldest, continuously running off-Broadway theater. Dori Ann and her production company will put on a two-night show. Good luck Dori Ann.

New Beginnings

For those who watched the TV show Touch - Friday night was the series finale after two seasons. The ending was better than I expected, the audience left to create the future for Martin, Jake and the 36, the bad guys in jail and old stories concluded. New beginnings ... coming full circle ... '24' return scoop: 13 episodes planned

New beginnings

Thursday night on Person of Interest - Harold set The Machine free. What will it do now? It is watching you ... new code ... human factor ... recovery ... no one is irrelevant ... move on from your old life into something new. Final code :: it is all part of illusion. Ask The Machine...
