Brief Update, and Words from Farrah Fawcett


I am heavy into the process of writing my one-man-show based on my music. About a month ago I thought I was nearing the end — and was getting very excited. However, the more I wrote, the more I realized that a large chunk of the play needed to be rewritten. I was talking to a writer friend of mine, and he said that is very common with writing a play or a story of some kind. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, given how my songs often change shape when I’m writing them. So I’m still writing away, and very happy with the direction it is taking! As a result of working on the show, I’ve been pretty behind on my blogs, my MySpace, Facebook and Twitter sites. I’ll do my best to catch up as the days go by! Just thought I’d update you on where I’m at at the moment.

Also, I was recently interviewed on the weekly ACB Radio Show, “Books and Beyond”. It was a one-hour interview and I was asked about everything from my acting, singing and songwriting, my days as a graphic designer (especially working on the O. J. Simpson case), and particularly about my creative process. Two of my songs will be played during the interview as well. It will be airing Saturday, June 11 at 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time, and will replay every two hours until the next day at 6 p.m.. Here is the link: ACB RADIO

As we mourn the passing of Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett, I thought I’d include a quote from one of them (knowing how I love quotes). Below is an excerpt from a letter written by Farrah to her “Charlie’s Angels” co-star Jaclyn Smith. Jaclyn read the letter during an interview with Barbara Walters. I found these words very inspirational. In addition, these words show her courage in the way she lived her life, and the way she battled cancer. Being a huge Farrah fan, I always admired her risk taking. She could have rested on her looks, but instead she challenged herself to go beyond her comfort zone with highly demanding parts in plays and movies such as “Extremities” and “The Burning Bed”. Thank you both, Michael and Farrah, for your contributions to my life. You both made the sun shine a little brighter for me….

“I want to thank you my dearest friend, for helping me take this ambiguous journey. Fear of everything seems just around the corner everyday and it’s my biggest test because I was never bothered by fear. I always felt that if I succeeded that was great, and if something failed my attitude was what’s the worst that could happen. A failure. So you just move on.”

– Farrah Fawcett.
