I’ll cherish each day… (4-4-2011)

Sometimes I want to stop time in its place, fearful of each day’s outcome, knowing that each one brings changes — some good, some bad, and some I dare not mention.   I have currently taken time to cherish each and every person in my life, taking in their life essence — their voice, their laughter, their smile, their warmth.   I cling on to each and every precious moment, and I have learned to practice forgiveness and discovered how to step outside of myself and forgo the twins ego and pride —

You see, nothing else matters once that final transition takes place, and even though I know that no matter how much we hold onto those moments, once that day comes, all we’ll have are those memories to console us.

I wrote this in dedication to my mother and father, brother and sister, aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews, and all of the other beautiful people I have been fortunate enough to meet along this journey.

I have been told through the years that I am too sensitive.  Well, you know something, it’s that characteristic that allows me to flourish in literary expression … it is that gift that defines who I am, and I figure, God knew what he was doing when he made it part of me.

I’ll cherish each day…

(Dedicated to my beautiful mother, who stayed with us…. and is still with us).

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…
