Shiny Bits In My Driveway

This morning I was standing at the end of my driveway, enjoying the sun and the crisp fall air. As I turned to go back towards my house, I noticed multi-colored shiny spots in the dirt and gravel in one area. Looking more closely, I saw it was many small bits of broken glass. I bent down and picked up a bunch of them, wondering how they had come to be there. I still have no idea where they came from, but I began to appreciate their beauty as I picked them up. They could have been diamonds, emeralds, and other gems. They made a pretty photo, too:

"Picture" "Quiet" "Rolling!"

I haven't posted in a while. Why? Time seems to have sped up, and run away from me, that's why! Lame excuse, but that's all I've got...

I did something last week that was quite out of the ordinary for me- I went down to Albuquerque and was an 'extra' in a scene of a TV show! The show is
Crash, which is on Starz network and stars Dennis Hopper & Eric Roberts, among others. The second season of this show begins airing this week, and the scene that I am in will be part of episode 10. Crash takes place in Los Angeles, but they actually film it in Albuquerque, New Mexico, because that is less expensive.

I really enjoyed watching the whole process, even though my own involvement was mostly just waiting around. The actual time doing the scene, and filming 4 or 5 takes with slight variations, only took about 30-40 minutes, as far as I recall. The scene I was in was a crowd scene, with about 75 people staning around in a street. We were supposed to be there because we'd been inspired by an idea to help the homeless, and we were volunteering to help.

I was fascinated watching the scene get set up, with all the people and equipment involved. I think what I enjoyed most was that everyone seemed happy to be there, doing what they were doing. It was also just fun being part of a large group of people creating something together.

I'm going down again next week to be an extra in another scene, this time it will be outside a shopping mall, where they need a bunch of people to be pedestrians, and to be driving or parking their cars. I'm looking forward to it.

Self Portrait On This GOOD Day

Today is an excellent day, the first day of a new era in my life, moving forward into a future which feels both mysterious and very attractive! Here is a self portrait taken as this energy was moving through me earlier today. I honor myself, and you, my blog visitor. All is well.

I post this to remember that which I might forget. I post this to prop open the doorway which I am passing through, so I may later look back and know how it was I came forth, from what was into what will be...
