Saints vs. Scoundrels Series

Fr. Mitch welcomes speaker and writer Dr. Benjamin Wiker to discuss his new series, “Saints vs. Scoundrels.”

“Dr. Wiker: This series actually came from the Architects of the Culture of Death at the start of it.  So that gave us kind of an idea about what we wanted to do.  I didn’t just want to do bad guys.  Architects of the Culture of Death is kind of a downer.  Fr. Mitch: Villains are always the most interesting characters in the movie! Dr. Wiker: Well that’s true?  But saints can be interesting.  When I signed on for this I said I want interesting saints!  Because they are they are exciting and three dimensional.  That’s the goal of the series, we want these people to be super alive.  Saints and scoundrels. We are going to have three dimensional evil and good.”

“A writer writes about the concrete, people with real lives and personality.”

Flannery O’Connor:

A writer writes about the concrete, people with real lives and personality.  Ayn Rand in contrast talks about abstract ideas and her characters are just places to hang them.  A story always involves, in a dramatic way, the mystery of personality.

The peculiar problem of the story writer is how to make the action he describes reveal as much of the mystery of existence as possible.

There is no mystery to Ayn Rand’s characters and no personality. Serve yourself above all and only your self.  Go, make money and be a Nietzschian superhero.  That’s the whole theme of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. When you can state the theme of a story… when you can separate it from the story itself… and state it in a nutshell like that… you can be sure the story is not a very good one.

There are a whole lot of people like Rand.  She just happened to make good.  They want to write about problems not people, about abstract issues not about concrete situations. They have an idea or feeling or an overflow of ego.

(A Good Man Is Hard to Find.  The most famous and grotesque short story written by Flannery O’Connor in 1953.  A misfit kills an entire family on their vacation.)

The concrete situation in A Good Man Is Hard to Find:  Grandmother is alone with the misfit.

The Misfit: Jesus is the only one that raised the dead, the misfit continued, and he shouldn’t done it. He thrown everything off balance if he was who he said he was.  Then there is nothing for you to do but throw away everything and follow him and if he didn’t then there is nothing for you to do but enjoy the few minutes you got left the best way you can by killing somebody or burning down his house or doing some other meanness to him. No pleasure but meanness.

The sledgehammer makes a tenderizer for grace sometimes.

How can a story that strikes terror be so connected to Christianity?

Why strike terror in the reader?  The Christian writer today must do his craft within the context of an audience largely defined by unbelief.  In fact hostile unbelief.  One of the awful things about being a writer when you are a Christian is that for you the ultimate reality is the incarnation. The present reality is the incarnation nobody believes in the incarnation that is nobody in your audience, my audience, are the people who think God is dead.  Very nearly deaf to grace and almost blind to redemption.  So a Christian writer may be forced to take ever more violent means to get his vision across to this hostile audience.  To the hard of hearing you shout and to the almost blind you draw large startling figures.  The misfit and grandmother are startling figures.

The grandmother is a self-seeking hypocrite and she is annoying and petty.  And her faith doesn’t run real deep.  The truth about Grace, the Catholic truth, is that Grace can and does use as its medium the imperfect purely human even hypocritical.

Like the old lady sewing a quilt for the bed, He uses whatever scraps He has on hand that’s us sinful human beings.

The grandmother in the story is the real medium for Grace of course as the misfit rightly said she is only purified as a medium for grace by having the gun put to her head.  That is the sad but very real truth about us isn’t it?

We are only receptive to the truth about ourselves about her own need for redemption about our terrible love of God when we’re standing face-to-face with death.   Death cuts through selfishness the hypocrisy the lies we surround ourselves with it forces us to ask about the caliber of our lives.  That’s why the misfit says at the end ‘she could’ve been a good woman if it’d been somebody been there to shoot her every minute of her life.’  I think that’s true of everyone including me.

 The last line is worth repeating.  I think that is true of everyone including me.

Establishing Shot – 3rd Dog’s Story

“Hillary’s America” Trailer

In his shocking new film, Dinesh D’Souza exposes the secret history of the Democrats and the real motivations of Hillary before the election this year.

There’s more to the story!

3rd Dog Script’s screenplay Peace Lily exposes the secret history of the deplorable culture at the Department of Veterans Affairs and how the Clinton’s established this culture.  It’s no “mistake” both are being exposed in the media today.  This post is for all those individuals suffering from PTSD from exposure to the Clinton culture or what I’ll label spiritual Agent Orange.

Establishing shots – Peace Lily

An establishing shot in filmmaking and television production sets up or establishes the context for a scene by showing the relationship between its important figures and objects. 

Establishing shots were more common during the classical era of filmmaking than they are now. Today’s filmmakers tend to skip the establishing shot to move the scene along more quickly. – Wikipedia

INT. LOBBY – DAY

A security GUARD wears a sloppy uniform, bad attitude, and stands next to a dilapidated metal detector.  A large picture…  VA emblem.

ON THE WALL:  President Clinton

Sophia stands inside the metal detector.

GUARD

Walk through the metal detector.

SOPHIA

Okay.

Sophia steps beyond the metal detector.

The Guard slowly moves a WAND up and down her body.

The guard presses a button and wand BEEPS and FLASHES RED.  It hovers over Sophia’s butt for several beats.

GUARD

Do you have any weapons on you?

I need to pat you down.

SOPHIA

No! I don’t have a weapon.  Why?

He touches the sides of her breast and then caresses her butt.

Seats filled with VETERANS appalled.  The guard’s eyes fixed on Sophia.

GUARD

You may go now.

SOPHIA

That wasn’t necessary!

**********************************************************************************************

NO SPOILERS

I used the classic style in the establishing scene/shot for Peace Lily because it represents the Golden thread in the script.  The context or the relationship between the important figure, President Clinton, and the object, Department of Veterans Affairs (a government agency), is to demonstrate how often subordinates are easily influenced by and follow their leader’s behavior.  I couldn’t follow the leaders’ behavior and found it quite difficult to watch my best friend subjected to the deplorable actions of the sick individuals who chose to go down the low road of sexual harassment, corruption, and destructive behaviors.  I decided to transform the negative into a positive with creative action.

We need to discuss all base people who are in a position of power such as Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton.  Let’s all be victors and not victims to support behaviors displayed and perpetrated by BOTH sexes and openly expose their crimes.  It was impossible for women harmed by Bill Clinton’s actions to fight Hillary Clinton’s power grab.  When a woman who’s considered powerful supports an abusive man, the female victim is discredited.  One of my characters in Peace Lilly was an evil woman, who displayed her desire for promotion by lying on women who were victimized by male leaders.  She was promoted, and she fostered a hostile environment for women.  She was #withherself just as Hillary Clinton’s campaign tagline displays this selfishness  -#Imwithher. In contrast, Donald Trump, a businessman, has chosen to rise to the occasion and take a leadership position.  Yes, women leaders who go against other women who are victims of sexual harassment prove to be all of themselves and set a precedent for the rest of the world to abuse women too.  My screenplay shows that women who support horrible crimes against other women may get the power grab they sell out for in the short time, but in the long run, they go to jail.

***********************************************************************************************

CURRENT NEWS:

“A General Lack of Care” is another line on the Golden Thread within Peace Lily which was written from my diary of events experienced at the Department of Veterans Affairs from 1991 to 2003.

In this classic coming-of-age and underdog story the innocent but stubborn heroine confronts evil in many hilarious scenes to eventually conquer the bad guys.  Problems occur when the villain feels threatened by Sophia’s knowledge of his corruption.  He and his cohorts try to get rid of Sophia by any means.  In the end, the heroine wins by exposing the truth.

The blatant hypocrisy in claiming to serve veterans while stealing funds, ignoring and destroying veterans claims, and not caring if veterans die to wait for care led me to believe VA leaders did not think they would suffer any consequences for their actions.  That’s when I started looking into the President’s actions and his wife, Hillary Clinton.  It is common for people to follow their leader’s behavior as most people admire leaders.  While searching beyond the headline news about Monica Lewinsky, I found all manner of corruption.  To grasp the details on what type of corruption, hypocrisy, and connections to government agencies, one only needs to watch the news, documentaries, or read the constant leaks coming out on both Bill and Hillary Clinton.  I looked at the Clinton culture ignite inside the Department of Veterans Affairs and grow as if that agency were too big to fail like the banks. The leaders at Department of Veterans Affairs copied the actions of the Clintons.

For those individuals suffering from PTSD from exposure to Clinton culture, the best treatment is to transform the negative into a positive by doing something productive to stop the madness.  Be creative!

Adapted Screenplay – The Prestige

“Studying film doesn’t kill its magic. It feeds that magic back into the real world” – The Nerdwriter

SPOILER ALERT *******************************SPOILER ALERT

If you haven’t seen the film stop now!

Or, continue on (it’s a decade old) and read the Review by the New York Times 2006, http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/20/movies/20pres.html?_r=0

Adapted Screenplay – The Prestige 

Won Empire Award UK 2007 Best Director, Christopher Nolan; Italian Online Movie Award (IOMA) 2007 Best Adapted Screenplay, Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan; London Critics Circle Film Award 2007 British supporting actor of the year Michael Caine; Satellite Award Best Overall DVD; SFX Award UK 2007 Best Film Director, Christopher Nolan.

When the Academy Awards are given out each year, there are two awards for screenplays. One is for best original screenplay, which is a screenplay that is written from no source other than the writer’s imagination. The other category is reserved for the best-adapted screenplay. Generally, this is a screenplay that interprets another source, like a novel, a short story, a play, or even another film.

The novel The Prestige is epistolary in structure; that is, it purports to be a collection of real diaries (that’s why I like this adapted screenplay) that were kept by the protagonists and later collated. The title derives from the novel’s fictional practice of stage illusions having three parts: the setup, the performance (the turn in the film), and the prestige (effect).

The Prestige is a 2006 mystery thriller drama film directed by Christopher Nolan, from a screenplay adapted by Nolan and his brother Jonathan from Christopher Priest‘s 1995 World Fantasy Award-winning novel of the same name. The story follows Robert Angier and Alfred Borden, rival stage magicians in London at the end of the 19th century. Obsessed with creating the best stage illusion, they engage in competitive one-upmanship with tragic results.

The American-British co-production features Hugh Jackman as Robert Angier, Christian Bale as Alfred Borden, and David Bowie as Nikola Tesla. It also stars Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, Piper Perabo, Andy Serkis, and Rebecca Hall. The film reunites Nolan with actors Bale and Caine from Batman Begins, and returning cinematographer Wally Pfister, production designer Nathan Crowley, film score composer David Julyan, and editor Lee Smith.

A co-production between Touchstone Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, the film was released on October 20, 2006, receiving positive reviews and strong box office results, and received Academy Award nominations for Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction. Along with The Illusionist and Scoop, The Prestige was one of three films in 2006 to explore the world of stage magicians. – Wikipedia

A spinning, whirling or twisting force… a fundamental concept of existence.

“Every magic trick consists of three acts: the magician shows you something ordinary… perhaps he asks you to inspect it to make sure it is real. In the second act, the turn, the magician takes that something ordinary and makes it do something extraordinary. Now, you are looking at the secret… but you won’t find it because you don’t really want to know. You won’t even clap because the magician needs to bring it back! The hardest part, the third act, is the prestige when you bring back the pledge.” – Cutter, Michael Caine

“This is the line that Nolan wants to walk… He wants to be immersive and metacinematic at the same time.  In other words, he wants to hide in plain sight (site). The prestige is all about a trick that moves its object through time and space instantaneously.”  – The Nerdwriter

While the plot supports the story, its the subplot that supports the theme of the script. The adapted screenplay – The Prestige – has crafted the subplot to support the theme derived from a collection of real diaries which also document Tesla’s inventions. Did Tesla the “Master of Light” create the most sought after illusion; the transported man?  For my prestige, I bring back the pledge… the mystery… and reveal the secret.  file:///C:/Users/peter/Downloads/p-teleport.pdf

All Hell Broke Loose: Lucifer Review 3rd Dog

American Comedy Series  (no spoilers in this Lucifer review 3rd Dog) 

Lucifer, as you may have already guessed, follows Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), who has escaped Hell to have a little fun on earth running a nightclub and playing with the lives of mere mortals. He’s apparently been doing this for a while when one of his so-called projects gets murdered, leading him to meet Detective Chloe Dancer (Chicago Fire’s Lauren German). Since Lucifer is the real devil, he’s great at convincing people to respond to questions they might not normally otherwise be willing to answer. This trickery leads to plenty of light-spirited comedy during the hour-long drama. It also leads Lucifer to become a very helpful police consultant. 

The series, created by Tom Kapinos, plays on the notion that Lucifer Morningstar might not be all bad, that God sent him down to Hell as the best option to take care of the souls who reside there. But it’s safe to say that Lucifer has some daddy issues, making him an even more complex character than you would expect from this sort of show. Fox does a lot to expand upon the basic procedural elements with Lucifer, introducing characters like psychologist Linda (Suits’ Rachael Harris), who help Lucifer delve into who he is and why he is on Earth.  – Cinemablend

The sly FOX, Tom Ellis, who plays Lucifer in this unique buddy cop show brings a new level to antihero.  The term antihero was first used as early as 1714, and the concept has also been identified in classical Greek drama, Roman satire, and Renaissance literature.

Still, Lucifer seems to be operating without much purpose – other than sheer debauchery – when Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) enters the scene, seeking to solve a murder that took place outside the club. Moreover, Chloe appears to be immune to Lucifer’s influence (one is tempted to invoke the image of Jedi mind tricks), which intrigues him, as he tags along in helping her to decipher what happened. – Variety

I totally disagree with Variety’s take on Lucifer.  What images do you conjure up when you here All Hell Broke Loose?  You’ll notice there’s more than British charm going on in the dialogue. Pandemonium could look like there’s no purpose, however, therein LIES the Tale.

Are you tempted to watch it?

The Theory of Everything – His Story!

 

You’ll discover what’s behind the genius of Stephen Hawking in this 2014 British biographical coming-of-age romantic drama film.

Bottom Line:  Love makes the world go-round with a big bang.

“There should be no boundary to human endeavor.  However bad life may seem where there is life there is hope.” – Stephen Hawking

Stephen’s black hole theory led him to an even greater realization life is unique and loves truly conquers all.    “Look at what we’ve made!”  – Stephen Hawking

In script writing, you’ll find that every scriptwriter wants to have a brilliant line like this one, to sum up, the grand endeavor.

Stephen’s personal script went beyond the ordinary.  His particle or particular view will lead the universal consciousness to discover His Story.  I give the film five stars, a raving review, and strongly recommend watching it.

Personally, I was captivated by the scenes of Stephen’s physical struggles of which I can unequivocally relate, and the desire to mentally reach beyond the stars, and the gentle nature that yearns to embrace love in its finest hour.  Furthermore, speaking of my particular view, I’m compelled to post my theory of everything – His Story (history).

Let me explain my theory, which is summed up in this line: The greatest script ever was written is inscribed in the stars and beyond!

WARNING:  Stop here, if you don’t want to go down the black hole.  Please understand, it will take some TIME to tell this tale.

If you’re ready to leap beyond the horizon into space then follow along as we move from theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s black hole to physicist Nassim Haramein’s black whole.

“What happened at the beginning of time?”  “Wind back the clock!”  “The universe was born from a black hole?”  – Hawking

“What unifies everything everywhere?”  “…were these ancient civilizations from all points across the globe leaving us detailed information about the fundamental physics of creation?” “…scientific evidence that everything is one.” – Haramein

You’ll discover the plot points as we move from Nassim Haramein’s documentary, The Connected Universe, to astrophysicist Hugh Ross’ Journey Toward Creation.  I recommend watching all the videos to grasp the concepts presented.   

Sundance: Indiegogo, Vimeo Launch Film Distribution Partnership

 

Physicist, Nassim Haramein

“Everything is connected from the cosmological level to the quantum level.”   

Similar to Stephen Hawking’s comment about Tide (detergent) in the trailer above, we’re about to discover some secrets that are right in front of our eyes.  These secrets cover the cosmological level and quantum level, the visible and invisible, and the relationship between man and God.

First, a quick note about How to Write a Script Outline: the eight major plot points (Scribe Meets World)

“You can create the most interesting character (humans) in the world (universe), but without an equally interesting plot, the audience will not want to spend 90-120 minutes with that person. For example, many people find Charlie Sheen’s current 2011 self-destructive spiral interesting to read and gossip about. But would they want to spend an hour and a half of their lives watching him swill alcohol, do drugs, and oogle women?  I think not.  But give Charlie boy a goal–perhaps to rejoin Two and a Half Men, the successful sitcom he was kicked off of–while he overcomes his addiction to alcohol, drugs, and women…”

I’ll highlight the major plot points to give a structure to this post. Finally, I’ll wrap up this take on the greatest script ever written with my view on the matter.

It’s not a silent movie!  The soundtrack is played on space itself…” – Janna Levin

 

Janna Levin, Astrophysicist, Theoretical Cosmologist

“However bad life may seem where there is life there is hope.”
There should be no boundary to human endeavor.” – Stephen Hawking

You’ll soon discover that LIFE is finely tuned and designed for US!  Yes, human beings are positioned right in the middle of things.

The midpoint marks the moment where they stop seeing each other as enemies, usually by accomplishing a minor, but important, goal together.  

The point of commitment is where your main character reaffirms his commitment to his goal.

The point of commitment happens around page 60 of your screenplay.  – Scribe Meets World

 

“…everything has a singularity at its center and so I thought everything was just a different size black hole.”

The Search for the Fundamental Pattern brings us to plot point one.

In television and film, a plot point is a significant event within a plot that SPINS the action around in another direction.

The concept of “Nasty Infinities,” not quite Charlie Sheen spiraling out of control, however, are renormalized instead of being discarded. Planck’s distance, roughly equal to 1.6 x 10-35 m or about 10-20 times the size of a proton, gives us something to work with when dealing with the potential of the vacuum. This concept is fundamental to creation.  If you put the number of these little dots in a centimeter cube of space (a vacuum), you’ll have a finite density for the vacuum fluctuation. Then you could calculate how much mass, renormalized vacuum density, exists for the universe, galaxy, or atom. The real question is this: how did an infinite amount of energy divide and created subatomic particles?  Maybe vacuum energy has structure and wasn’t random fluctuations but had a boundary fractal structure (geometric structure).

How do you describe it?  Maybe everything in the universe is just a division of that energy density of the vacuum in various scales.

Elisabeth A. Rausher, Ph.D, physicist in collaboration with Nassim Haramein, present a Scaling Law (yet to be published) that uses the radius and frequency data points on the scale shown below.  The data points represent universal size, galactic size, solar dynamics, interstellar dynamics, and crossing the boundary into atomic (from cosmological level to quantum level) level all the way to Planck’s constant with an obvious linear progression.  Adding the biological resolution – the size of the sphere of our cells and their frequency level – brought them to discover the information feedback loop between the radiated side and the contracted side happens to fall exactly at the mid point!

Information doesn’t just flow into black holes but flows out as well – Nassim Haramein

Scale-cell

 

The Midpoint:  “You are the Event Horizon” the biological link (boundary) between the large and the small.  Instead of seeing yourself as an insignificant dot in the universe, you start to see yourself as the center of creation.  If you have come to these conclusions, you must have come to this conclusion finding out everyone else is the center of their universe as well and thus, we are all equal and we are all one.”  – Nassim Haramein

It’s In Every one of Us

 

“I’ve realized that I bought this ticket and watching only half of the show.”  “But there is scenery and lights and a cast of thousands…”

Plot point two is an adverse event in the story that launches the third act.  We have scientific evidence that LIFE is not by accident and what’s more…the script writer is interacting in the show similar to how an artist paints themselves into their art work.

We have all heard about “Big Bang” theory which states, among other things, that the whole universe started out as an infinitely small point in space called a singularity.   And then “blew up” in a “massive explosion”, thereby creating space where there had been none before and space has been expanding ever since (at an ever accelerating rate, a process is literally known as “inflation”). – Nassim Haramein

10420000_348389365352328_1897319600286651396_n

 

It’s in all of us to be wise!

 

“Number six is a small black dot (hole) for example, which conveniently sits at the center of the numbers 1 through 12.” – Daniel Tammet  Notice that the number six positioned in the center on the diagram of the Tree of Life.

“What about bigger numbers?  Well, you can’t get bigger than Pi…(approximate fraction 22/7) the mathematical constant.”  What about fluid dynamics can it be found in art work as well?

So far, we’ve covered the secrets of the cosmological level and quantum level, the visible and invisible, and now we’ll go into the relationship between man and God.

Pale Blue Dot – The Universe of Aristotle and Ptolemy

 

“All Is Lost  At this moment.  Your main character has experienced an extreme setback.

He’s the farthest he can possibly be from his goal, and it seems impossible for him to accomplish it.

This moment usually marks the end of Act II.”   Scribe Meets World

Have we lost hope for humanity?  How can we put belief to the test?

God’s Sabbath (Epoch of Rest which we are currently in) explains why present-day science reveals only natural processes at work.  Most biologist focus their research on the current era, whereas, if your research comes from the past as it does in astronomy, you’ll find the evidence for a personal God.

It’s not about design in the sense that all scientists admit in their research that we see overwhelming evidence for intelligent design.  The real debate is who or what is responsible for the design we see in the universe, Earth, and its life.  Is the scientific evidence for a creator shrinking or growing?  The Bible states that God creates independent of space and time: “Singularity beginning” may be found in the books of Genesis. Psalm, Isaiah, Hebrews, John, and Col.  The causal agent beyond space and time must be a personal being because only a personal being should demonstrate the attributes of intellect, knowledge, creativity, power, and care for his creation.  This is not only acknowledged by those who take a Christian perspective, but it has been acknowledged by physicists and astronomers who take an atheistic perspective.  – Hugh Ross

YOU have a ticket, and this spiral is worth watching through the whole show.

The more I examine the universe, the more evidence I find that the universe, in some sense, must have known we were coming.  – Freeman Dyson, Disturbing the Universe, p.250

Discovery of extrasolar planets makes the coincidences of our planetary condition far less compelling evidence that the Earth was carefully designed just to please us humans. – Stephen Hawking, The Grand Design, p.153  (Extrasolar planets aren’t just right or finely tuned for LIFE)

Let’s talk about that constant in the universe.

images (3)

 

Astronomers have developed nine independent observational demonstrations that show not only is the dark matter and energy real, it is the dominant component of the universe.

 

 

 

Space-Time Theorems:  If the universe contains mass and general relativity reliably describes cosmic dynamics, then space and time must be created by a causal agent who transcends space and time.

Space-Time Theorems:  Any universe that expands on average has a beginning in the past and must be created by a transcendent causal agent.  – Borde, Vilenkin, Guth

Dark Energy: Arranging the universe as we think it is arranged would have required a miracle.  …An external Agent (to space and time) intervened in cosmic history for reasons of its own. – Dyson, Kleban, and Susskind, Disturbing Implications of a Cosmological Constant

 

Astrophysicist, Hugh Ross

“The more astronomers learn about the universe the more evidence they find that the conditions necessary for life are far more numerous and far narrower than anyone imagined.  During our journey back in time we have explored just a few of over 200 finely tuned characteristics needed in order for any life to exist on any planet.  This idea known in astronomical circles the entropic principle demonstrates that the universe has been crafted for the benefit of man.”  – Hugh Ross

Dr. Tony Rothman, professor of Physics at Bryn Mawr College, states this, “when confronted with the order and beauty of the universe and the strange coincidences of nature…it’s very tempting to take the leap of faith from science into religion.”

If you’ve followed my website or blog from the beginning of my writing journey, then you’d have noticed the theme of my plots, poems, and posts are all pieces of my Theory of Everything.

In the climax, your main character has gathered his resources (both internal and external).  In this showdown, he will test his mettle against the opposing forces that have thwarted him from achieving his goal.  If he has a tragic flaw, in the climax, he demonstrates that he has overcome it.  All the lessons he learned during the second act will pay off in the climax.   Scribe Meets World

My final take:  Science provides evidence or elements of a creator…a script…and our ability to witness the effects in action. We can see in the universe all the unique things that need to occur to create LIFE, and that each fractal movement inward and outward occurs at different levels with the same precision and accuracy.  The human experience is meant to give feed back to the Creator with the intent of eventually eliminating all unwanted parts to create an eternal, perfect universe. Characters in the universe play their role as each one of us plays our part in the larger scheme of things.  All the soul’s information will complete the moving picture pixel by pixel to present a grand masterpiece.

The greatest script ever was written is inscribed in the stars and beyond!  It is His Story.

“Adding the biological resolution.”
Resolution If your screenplay has a happy ending, the resolution is the best part for your hero.
He gets to enjoy the fruits of his labor.  His world is in balance again.

The Creator’s story is about LOVE and LIFE.

The Brand StoryHome

…is in honor and memory of Tessa, my small Maltese born October 6, 1993, and passed away September 18, 2009.

I was considered the 3rd dog in Tessa’s pack. Her first master was the first dog, Tessa was the second dog, and I was the third dog. No matter what I’d do to gain respect or position in Tessa’s eyes… I was “ the third dog.” She was so adorable and such a character. I caved to her demands…and she was very demanding…which brought me joy and contentment. Her demands were begging for food and sitting on my lap.

Tessa had a few quirky personality traits based on her past…growing up in a less than ideal environment thrown into the backyard with two Dobermans to fend for herself. She was about 3 pounds at that time the runt and a spitfire. Not far from being a replica of me….she made me smile with joy at her attitude.

Quite the problem solver

She also liked mischief and got herself into some severe problems. Like the time she discovered chocolate candy on the coffee table and laid in wait for her moment to snatch the candy bars run upstairs and hide them under the bed until nightfall. In the middle of the night, I awoke to a banging noise. It was Tessa banging her water bowl against the metal stairs to get my attention. I soon discovered several empty candy wrappers, piles of vomit everywhere, and Tessa hitting the bowl. It is unbelievable that she survived that terrible episode eating more candy bars than I could… at one time!

Filled with inspiration

She will always be my inspiration and a reminder of perfection.

As I emerged in the second half of my journey as a storyteller, launched myself into the world of screenwriting, and left behind an entirely different phase of my life, I also had to let go of my friend…my companion my little spitfire Tessa.

I will forever be the 3rd dog.
