“I Just Had to Say This” (reflections of a writer in English & Spanish) GD

Humor at the expense of others misfortunes and mistakes really doesn’t amuse me anymore.  As I grow older, I am wiser, and it was never okay. I heard some comments, on a radio station I love listening to, about a famous entertainment family struggling with the disease of substance abuse.  Yes, that’s what I just wrote, disease, because that’s what substance abuse is.  It doesn’t get the sympathy that Cancer or other diseases get because quite a few people still don’t understand that it is a disease that can be terminal.

Remission you pray for, and some of us find it, but some of us succumb to it.  My laughter is reserved for the moments of joy and beauty.

I just had to say this.

(reflections of a writer) GD

12 Steps to Serenity


In Spanish:

Humor a costa de las desgracias de otros y los errores realmente no me divierten más. A medida que envejezco, soy más sabio, y nunca fue bien. He oído algunos comentarios, en una estación de radio me encanta escuchar, sobre una familia de entretenimiento más famosos que luchan con la enfermedad del abuso de sustancias. Sí, eso es lo que acabo de escribir, la enfermedad, porque eso es lo que es el abuso de sustancias. No puede ser la simpatía que el cáncer u otras enfermedades conseguir porque muy pocas personas todavía no entienden que se trata de una enfermedad que puede ser terminal.La remisión a orar, y algunos de nosotros lo encuentra, pero algunos de nosotros sucumbimos a él. Mi risa se reserva para los momentos de alegría y belleza.Sólo tenía que decir esto.

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…
