Machines of ACTION…

family.jpg

This is my family. Out for the day to celebrate my Mom’s life. We did what she loved to do, by going to Nate & Al’s Deli in Beverly Hills for a massive sandwich. But these people (excluding myself), are Machines of Action. You wouldn’t know it by what they look like, but the creativity in this little package packs a huge punch. (Probably why I like MINIS…) Let me give you an example…

On the left, next to me is my wife Kathie. A self educated Costume Designer, having build thousands of costumed characters for film and TV. (www.kclproductions.com). She’s also a new Black Belt as I’ve mentioned, 30 year surfer, world traveler and most importantly, one who gives more than receives. The most extraordinary trait a human can possess. And she’s mine.
Next to her, my father Tony. Anthony Lawrence, as the industry would know him. A screenwriter with several thousand published pieces for film and TV. An icon. He, again, may not look like much holding that cupcake, but check this out… A Martial Artist under Chuck Norris, wrote Bonanza, Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, Hawaii 5-0 and hundreds of other series that most of you have seen. Plus, raised 5 kids on one salary, badass ping pong player, sculptor, poet and literary genius. Someone a new writer would aspire to be. But again, and most importantly… a man of action and means. Always gives far more than he received.

Then, there’s my brother, Ethan. Looks like me with his stunning features. (Ok, slight exaggeration.) Another incredible writer, specifying in Horror, occult and the occasional totally off the wall shows. Small Town X, The Pretender.. and currenty, something I’m not allowed to talk about. Also a Martial Artist, Tennis Badass, Buddy to William Shatner I’m now told (Known as “The Shat.”), one helluva gardner and again… a man that gives. His ideas and concepts are not to be taken lightly. A true Machine of Action.

Then, there’s Dee. Denitria Harris Lawrence. Ethan’s wife and now a MegaProducer/ Writer. I’ve watched Dee grow from being a great writer to someone of supreme talent. Has a new show on with Holly Hunter and has written her butt off for the last 25 years to make a name for herself. A Woman of means and a clear plan to bring fruition. Her writing affects people all over the country. And that, is a gift not many possess.

Lastly, my sister Jordana. A creative juggernaut. Yea, she’s small, but stand clear. A WREAKING FORCE OF NATURE I’d call her. A tremendous Director of Theater with untapped talent that world has yet to see, and is seeing. Notice the electricity coming off her??

To be blessed to have these people as my family is not worthy of simple words. I only share this to express that I have a choice. A choice to see the good in them. We all have faults, but the good is a road less traveled. And that has ALWAYS made the difference…

Never stop looking for the good in all you meet. And watch what good comes to you…
