“Necessary…” a poem, from the soul of Author G. D. Grace

Sound.  I react to occurrences and their events like a moth to a flame,

Within my surroundings I am guaranteed nothing except for what I take away from each encounter.

The inner balance of my mind moves as fluently as a leaf bending from the force of the wind.

I am older in the current, but the tide I ride upon resembles birth as it rushes in and brushes shore,

and the sands of time it touches are vaguely familiar to my mental.

Memories cascade downward like the disorganized waters of a never-ending fall,

reminding me of where I’ve been and where I am now

Lessons learned make little sense, yet I am forced to acknowledge their relevance in my life .

I am ancient like an Egyptian artifact, composed like the perfect poem, rhythmic in flow, uncluttered and simple.

Behind what is physical lies a spirit that only a few are allowed to see.

I am depth without being deep, warm as a lazy summer’s day, quiet in approach, and fearless when I leap.

My soul reaches for that which cannot be held, and my heart desires somethings that must not be.

In looking ahead I am always compelled to look back

Longing to possess what is beautiful and near close to exact

Some call me a dreamer, distant from reality

But I’m the air we breath, as necessary as the sea…

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
