WE CAN'T CHANGE OUR PERSONALITIES

I do not like the concept of predetermination in theology, however, after having lived a pretty long time, I'm convinced we can't escape our innate personalities.  We seem to be born with our dispositions.

Some people have hot tempers, some are emotional, some want to be caretakers and some want to be taken care of.  It doesn't even matter what happened to you, good or bad.

Clarity sat down and crossed her legs on a sofa of Bubba Key´s room, which had three areas, the bedroom, an adjacent living room, and a bathroom.

WHITNEY HOUSTON: TRAPPED IN HER OWN SUPERSTARDOM

Whitney Houston sang like an angel.  She suddenly appeared at the Grammy's and the world held its breath.  She was larger than life. She sang with passion.  She was beautiful.  And then she fell out of the cosmos like a shooting star.

Why does this happen, over and over to our stars, who are large than life in their charisma, they appear, they dazzle us, and then they die young:  Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Edith Piaf, Marilyn Monroe, Princess Di (not an entertainer, but had the…

My Latest Project - a New Video Game - Sure to Be a Smash Hit!!

           I never thought that I would be adding “Video Game Creator” to my list of (ahem) accomplishments. That was, however, before my latest trip to see my parents. Now, I have an idea for a video game which will break all sales records – well, at least in the New York area and in those places where transplanted New Yorkers reside.

            The game is called (blaring of trumpets):

Filmmaking Has a New Learning Curve
