I Director

A  L  O  H  A !
" Simple
 can be harder
 than complex. "
                   Steve Jobs

 "If you ever find yourself 
in the wrong story, 
                   Mo Willems

"The two of them were 
very proud of that scene 
when it was done 
because it seemed 
simpler than it was. "
                      Paris Barclay, 


During Holiday Seasons
there is a lot of work,
expectations, and pressure
in the air.

are disrupted;
And some of us
rely on our routines
to regulate our days.

We may be separated
from companions,
or worse:
our companion animals!

When I get tense
It's does me good 
to remember
that I am director
of my own movie.

Call a five minute break.
Assess the scene.

Sometimes, it's what
DOESN'T occur
that makes the piece!
[so it comes off simpler
than it is]

Don't play someone else's
role they've created for you.

Just tell yourself:

Then play it your way,
or not at all.

If voices be raised,
yours need not
be one of them.

You are the Star
of your own movie!


Thank You
for your appearance
                 Warmly, cloudia

So did you type this post from a folding director's chair while wearing a baseball cap turned backwards? I expect you it's too hot for tweeds in Hawaii!
