Thanksgiving Tis the Season to Reflect

(4)
November 28, 2014

Well hello there! Time has shot by faster than a speeding super train and it is the day after Thanksgiving, or as I like to think of it, “Tis the season to reflect.” Soon enough it will be “Tis the season to be jolly,” but since I really feel I am here on borrowed time,… Read More ›

The Blog Tour and Staying Relevant: I Hope

I need to thank Sandra over at quirkybooks for tagging me in this exercise. As usual, I have a love/hate relationship with these blogging “pats on the back” events that we indulge ourselves in every so often. They are, for the most part, quite fun and it gives us a chance to pass on our… Read More ›

The Re-Americanization of M i.e. Me

I will apologize upfront for the horrendous butcher job I’ve done on The Americanization of Emily in my attempt to be “cute.” Apologies also to the late great Paddy Chayefsky who penned the film. The phrase jumped into my head, originally as just The Re-Americanization of Michael, which does sound a lot more intelligent than… Read More ›

A Guilty 1000: Go Me?

A Guilty 1000: Go Me?

On March 2012, I moved from my former blogging home to WordPress. Immediately my amount of views went up exponentially as did my followers. After a year and three months I had 500 followers and it seemed to take ages for me to attract folks to read my stuff. I posted a self-congratulatory type of… Read More ›

Goodbye 2013 Hello 2014 Winds of Change

Goodbye 2013 Hello 2014 Winds of Change Continue to Blow

Hello my old friend. I’ve had a wonderful ride here and the past year has been one of change, challenge, camaraderie and catharsis. Enjoyable yet disconcerting, 2013 has been an amazing followup year to 2012. Events that took place in the year prior to ’13 are still resounding in me and their long term affect… Read More ›

My Summer Vacation

My Summer Vacation: Acting and Adventure

The film I worked on this summer has now been made available for public viewing on Vimeo. It was filmed in July around Sidmouth, England with an intimate cast and crew. I worked with some brilliantly talented people and hopefully will work with them again. The experience was another life changer for me. I had… Read More ›

Puddin Is the Name

For those who follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook, you will have noticed that I have had an addition to my household. A lost cat who tried to “adopt” me roughly four weeks ago. He is now a fully fledged member of the Smith clan, United Kingdom branch. His newly christened name is Puddin as… Read More ›

Something Big: Something We All Want

Something Big: Something We All Want?

I ordered the DVD for Dean Martin’s Something Big film after realising that I did not have a copy already and that I had not seen it for ages. I love the film, or more accurately, I love the theme of the film. It goes without saying that this would be a personal favourite. I… Read More ›

Remembering a Year Ago Today

My body remembered, even if I did not. While setting up my calendar for appointments next week, I forgot to set the calendar back that resides on the front of my fridge. Being naturally scatty sometimes (Sometimes? I hear you cry. Only sometimes?) I glanced at it on Thursday and decided that today, Friday, was… Read More ›

Living Alone after a Lifetime Living with Others

Writing the other day of my thoughts on mortality and the avoidance of becoming consumed by the fear of death in the wee hours of the morning, I got a comment from my good friend Tash over at Films and Things. She mentioned that when she was younger she had the irrational fear that she… Read More ›
