“My Favorite Things” – an introspective by Author G D Grace

Author G D Grace 10-23-2012

My favorite things are not material; they are living and breathing human beings with a spirit and a soul.  They are part of my mental and spiritual and mean more to me than my own life, and I am more because they opened their hearts to me.  The Almighty gave me incredible gifts of compassion and literary which I internalize and produce words that churn into poetry, introspectives, and novels.  The year of 2012 has been one of material loss and the gain of inner-strength — inner-strength that I would not have tapped into had I not experienced and lived beyond those moments.  In the midst of uncertainty and insecurity we cling to faith like an incredible and indestructible life raft and in keeps us afloat during the surge of crashing waves around us.  Our triumph comes when we realize that we did not drown in spite of how large and ferocious those waves are, and when our feet touch sand we emerge from the massive swirls and we walk on solid ground again.

My favorite things are my incredible family and friends new and old, and that colorful tapestry of human beings keep me strong.  Their force is powerful, yet the most powerful force behind everything that has kept me inspired is that force that comes from The Almighty — an unquestionable light that warms hearts and allows spirits to move on beyond the worst tragedies imaginable.

For my mother and father, Almighty, I thank you.

For my grandparents, Almighty, I thank you.

For my sisters and brother, Almighty, I thank you.

For my aunts and uncles, Almighty, I thank you.

For my remarkable and talented friends, Almighty, I thank you.

For my heart and my soul, Almighty, I thank you.

For the incredible gift you have given to me, Almighty, I thank you.

In 2013 I am poised to inspire thousands and, Almighty, I thank you.

These are a few of  “My Favorite Things” ~GD

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…
