It’s been a whirlwind for me the last several weeks. One thing on the verge of something else. One coversation led to a huge change to the sequence of the series, as I am now in the process of writing the new pilot. New sharper book covers; upgrades to all the websites – there are … More LOVE & THE LORD ARE UNIVERSAL!
This thought has kept coming to me. “Good ideas with bad execution, equals epic failure.” I can’t help but think of this toddler size, plastic ice rink that the town of Gettysburg put in. This was to see if there was an interest in a “real” ice rink for the future. Well, this thing they … More TAKE THE TIME TO EDUCATE YOURSELVES!
Happy Happy New Year! I do love winter – for a brief period of time. Snow makes everything beautiful around the battlefields. But, I love spring and summer. But most of all, I love family beach time!

The above picture is very profound. I think many Indie filmmakers feel like this at some point during the film-funding process – empty and alone! But, I cannot help but to think of Peter. In Luke 5:1-7 the Bible states: “One day as Jesus was standing by the Lake of Gennesaret, with the people … More WATER INTO WINE!
Wow! I have been pretty busy planting Summer Ray seeds – promoting the story by newsletters, brochures, emails, Facebook and other means. I am keeping up with making sure that we are a professional business as well. Burn out is not fun, added with impatience, it becomes a nightmare. We have to remember the farmers. … More TAKING ROOT!
Wow! It has been over a month since my last blog. Yikes! But, I have been very busy with Summer Ray and other author stuff too. Plus, skating has picked up on the training and I have been tired. But, back to it. I have been lacking in the marketing part of all of this. … More DO IT RIGHT!
On my morning walk this morning, I passed by the part of the battlefield where the story of Summer Ray began. The battlefield hasn’t changed. But over the last ten to eleven years, Summer Ray has.
