And the winner is . . . (Me!)

Gold_2 Winning is one thing but looking your best at the Oscars is the requirement. No one made a fashion error this year - especially Me!

Other_3 At my Oscars I won for Best Actress, Best Blog and Best Dressed. . .


Movies are magic!

I love that each year we honor all those who are involved in this world of wonders.

Many or us who are not on the red carpet for all to see, create our own with friends and family to celebrate our achievements.

But the I think Forest Whitaker's speech hit it on the head and used his win at the Oscars to honor that which I believe is the most important part of the human experience: Connecting.Moulinrouge_2

Movies help people connect with themselves and with each other.
What could be better than that?

Go to CK's Blog to view Forest's entire speech (video and text).

$pend your time and your money wi$ely.

Fastmoney Money. It comes and goes. We spend so much time worrying about where we'll get it and if we'll have enough and if we can afford it. What a waist of time and life!!

All too often I've seen people live for the Almighty Dollar. It rules their every decision and their state of mind. Most people are living in accordance with what they think they can't do, rather than what they want to do. Now, I'm not saying be stupid and run your credit cards up, and get into terrible debt, and feel overwhelmed with bills. I'm saying if you live as if you can't have anything - then you can't. Live in abundance and you'll have abundance.

Maybe I'm just lucky - or - as my accountant says, I'm a financial genius. Because, I don't really make a lot of money, but I live like I do. I travel when I want, I have what I want and I choose a career in the arts - I'm an Actress (live theatre being my true love) - where there is little opportunity to get rich. (Hence, the term starving artist.) But, if I took my financial situation into consideration, when making a career decision, I'd have never had the rich experience of living my dream and having a passion filled life. Yes, it's risky but I've found it to be well worth the risk.

In fact, I've taken financial risks - some have panned out some have not. I've invested in things I love and I've spent money on people I love, even when I really didn't have it for myself. And guess what? The rewards are endless. What I'm absolutely sure of is that I will always have enough money. Remember, it comes and goes. There is always more coming. Believe it.

Be smart with your money, yes, but don't be ruled by it when it comes to your life. If you think you can't afford to take my advise, you're wrong. Moneyrolls_2

To have a truly rich life, you can't afford not to.

A Valentine's Poem

Popupheart Once upon a time, I fell in love.

Once upon a time I fell in love over and over again.

Twice upon a time, I fell in love.

Thrice upon a time, I fell in love and in love and in love and in love again.

Some people might say that I’m in love with love.

                                        But I think I’m just trying to perfect the art of falling. 

Feel Your Way

Feelings_1 I feel my way through life and love. And, because I don’t censor it or mute the experience, I feel deep sorrow and great joy. This is what makes my life so abounding and my journey so exciting.

It’s truly an adventure when you just move forward without a map and simply see where the life takes you. And if I really pay attention to all the lessons of my heart, being the emotional person that I am, I will get closer and closer to that wonder I seek and I will never miss a moment of my life.

It’s exhausting to experience life and love fully and it’s much more work than just settling for less. But I’m driven to have it all. I believe I can -- in all areas of life.

Feelings are passion and life is a passionate experience if you really let yourself live it. It means that when I’m afraid I cannot turn away or crawl into a hole to hide. It means I have to keep going, believing and striving to be honest, authentic and direct in all my interactions with myself and with others.

I get my information from my emotions. When I don’t feel right I’m not living truly by my code: "Be Honesty, Authentic and Direct."

There will be no compromising. I will continue to feel my way in this "rational" world.

I am determined.
