I apologize, as it has been way too long since my last blog post. I’ve had a most interesting year, full of introspection, growth, and opportunity.
It is amazing how parallel my own life is to Morris Goodman’s. Uncannily, my life seemed come crashing down on March 10, 2014 – 33 years to the day of Morris’ life-altering plane crash – when my wife told me she was leaving me, and taking our boys with her. I felt that the totality of my dreams were crushed, just as Morris’ body had been crushed. But like Morris, I held fast and strong to the idea that my life will return to its feet in a way that will make my spirit and resolve stronger than it has ever been.
Obviously, my time had to be shifted away from the film for these personal reasons. I needed to heal emotionally, spiritually, and financially. I spent the year beginning series of different religious and personal development training. As a result, I have been able to let go of feelings of guilt and blame – for myself and for others, my personal finances are better than they ever have been, and I have never been more empowered to do the work that I know I was called to do in this life – and that was to empower and enrich the lives of others, through making films and interacting with my audience!
I owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to all of my friends and teachers who have guided me over this past year, especially the amazingly talented and inspiring actress/teacher/healer Dee Wallace, the spiritual director of the Center for Spiritual Living North Jersey Rev. Michelle Wadleigh, sports psychologist and professor Dr. Rob Gilbert (call his Success Hotline every day at 973-743-4690!), the writing and podcasts of some very well-known teachers, especially Joel Osteen, Neale Donald Walsch, Mike Dooley, Esther Hicks, Derek Rydall and GP Walsh, as well as the many people who continue to inspire me in and around a series of courses with Landmark Worldwide.
I owe one of the largest debts of gratitude specifically to my fiscal sponsor, Carole Dean of From the Heart Productions, along with actor/producer Tom Malloy. After several years, I have finally been able to enter into their Intentional Filmmaking class, and they are inspiring me, encouraging me, and empowering me to finally make this long-time dream of this movie into the reality it was meant to be! Through their inspiration, you will begin to see a great deal of activity on this film very soon!
Finally, I owe a debt of gratitude for YOU – my audience! For those of you who have donated and/or contributed to our crowdfunding campaign (the perks are coming soon!), who have signed up for our newsletter, have liked us on Facebook, followed us on Twitter and are reading this blog! YOU have kept me going, knowing that the world wants to see this film – and needs to see this film! YOU are the reason I am making this film, so thank you for continuing to be my inspiration!
I look forward to sharing more news with you soon!
