I can still hear my fathers wise words spoken to me as a child in regards to work ethics “Son no matter what the task, even if it’s cleaning toilets, you clean those toilets like they’ve never been cleaned before and proudly represent your family name!”

Unfortunately, during my 53yrs on this planet, I’ve seen a severe decline in this regard of taking PRIDE in self, and whatever you do?

Mind you this is no easy task and even someone like myself, who really works hard at it and seems to have it all together, suffers from moments of feeling LOST & LONELY! But, giving up on living an excellent life is not an option!


“If you want to find the real competition, just look in the mirror. After awhile you’ll see your rivals scrambling for second place.”
Criss Jami, Killosophy

And remember, just like in the Olympics, the rewards for excellence are GOLDEN!

The German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) wrote: “Let where you are going, not where you come from, henceforth be your honor! Your will and your foot that desires to step out beyond you–let them be your new honour!” –Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for Everyone and No One, translated by R.J. Hollingdale (London: Penguin Books, 1969), p.220.

As a National Track & Field competitor in my Youth, I learned at a young age the importance of looking forward. There was no time to dwell on yesterday’s results. The most important thing, as in life, was to maintain an optimistic forward-thinking attitude.

Beating your own best record and striving for a newfound level of excellence was a day to day occurrence.

This coach inspired conditioning proved to be invaluable later on in my life as an adult entering the world.

Stagnation equaled defeat!


And not only until now in my 50s is my true success becoming apparent! And this type of success is found in not being swayed by the perception of thinking others are doing better than you, but staying on the path you’ve chosen to fulfill a mission only you can fulfill.

The important thing is to start something and see it through to fruition! Of course, you have blunders and you will fall many times. What truly matters, and separates a winner from a loser is not staying down, but every time picking yourself back up. Keep moving onward and upward!

This leads me to

“Why wouldn’t everything in your life start getting much, much easier?

Why wouldn’t those things you now fear, Blane, dissolve into dust?

Why wouldn’t the rest of your life be the best of your life?

I mean, you’ve NEVER been as awesome, or wise, or deserving, as you are today.”

Huh? Huh? Huh?
The Universe

I leave you with the poetic words of Mark F. LaMoure, executive chairman at World Class Dynamics

“Autograph your life with a signature of excellence”

YOUTH There Lives Are Precious!

  • I feel so very fortunate that my life in this moment and time is attracting these phenomenal films that are striking my core and moving my heart in accordance with my desires of actualizing the life of my dreams, tearing down every construct of disbelief and road blocks I put in the way!




TRAVIS FINE in his premiere directorial debut blows it out of the water, and actors ALAN CUMMING, GARRET DELLAHUNT, ISAAC LEYVA, and FRANCES FISHER all gave OSCAR level performances that ripped my heart out and made the issues at hand up close and personal. And thanks to the ignorance, prejudices, and preconceived notions of our society, this film does not have a happy ending!


Too many lives of our youth are lost due to our own fears and negative experiences.


“There are no winners in this religion-driven massacre of human life.” -Aaron Anson

Religion, Family, and Gay Teen Suicides


I myself along with another member of my family are both rape/suicide survivors of the Jehovah’s Witnesses religion and unfortunately it was at such a young age that we thought it was our fault and kept silent. I was so happy for Candance Conti’s Victory in 2012, but there’s far too many, including many of my friends who are no longer with us. And the guilty parties must be held accountable!


“Whatever they grow up to be, they are still our children and the one most important of all the things we can give to them is unconditional love. Not a love that depends on anything at all except that they are our children.” -Rosaleen Dickson

A day filled with  joy and laughter is how I recounter the day of filming and interviewing Blane for HYBE.tv. His sparkling and positive energy towards anyone (known or unknown) is contagious and that was enough reason, for me, to let him share his message to the world in a 1-minute video.

Besides the passion of being a wardrobe and interior consultant for his company BCDC (Blane Charles Design Consultant),  he also practices Nichirin Buddhism, like me :-), a life affirming philosophy of the  13th century Japanese Monk Nichirin Daishonin. In a nutshell; Nichirin Buddhism asserts that every single individual, regardless of race, gender, social standing, capability etc. has the power to overcome life’s challenges, to develop a life of great value and to inspire/influence their environment and the world around them in a positive way.

Blane inspires me because he takes good care of himself, by going to the Holistic treatment center Sphatika NYC, wearing the latest fashion (actually…
