In the Light of Love (Reflections of a Writer) GD 6-4-2011

On this road I travel, please allow my life to inspire someone in need of inspiration, because I know how hard it can get sometimes.  The fears, the doubts, the feelings of worthlessness can overtake the spirit, but it is resilient, and it can rise up from the ruins of despair.  There have been days that have seemed so dark, and nights that have been unbearable, yet we always manage to get through somehow — the lucky ones.

Sometimes I wonder way too much about too many things such as, the wicked ways of some, and the suffering of others.   Our purpose here in this existence is beyond definition.  Many of us drift in and out of uncertainty and anguish, battling for a place to be, using the achievements of others as a catalyst to climb up the ladder of success, and I’m wondering how anyone could bare the guilt associated with robbing someone of their hard work.

We all have our own star to claim as our own.  Against the blackness of a night sky it is visible if only we look upward, and when we reach for it without shame, or hesitation, we can possess it’s beauty throughout our days.

I don’t know too much about what is and what isn’t right… the only thing I know is what I feel inside, and it doesn’t require someone dictating to me from a pulpit how I should act, what I should feel, and who I can love.  My thought process may not be in alignment with the perceptions of the “leaders”, however, I trust my soul and my heart.

I don’t profess to be a saint, nor do I deem anyone else to be one.  I just know that we are all here for only a short time, and I live my life in the light of love…

Yeah, that’s how I live my life.  In the light of love.

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…
