“Unsung,” Ugly Egos and a Superstar That Wasn’t.

Author, G. D. Grace:

Ugly Egos Indeed – Terrence Trent D’Arby. It’s amazing the damage an over-inflated ego can have on humility.

I watch very little television anymore.  I’ve been getting smarter every day.  A lot of pro football, throw in some news and DVR Frontline, and I’m pretty much good.  I don’t do reality shoes, competition shows, talent search shoes and any kind of Real Basketball Skanks from Jersey Whores crap.

Television doesn’t entertain me much these days so I’ll settle for being educated.

Which is why I enjoy TV One’s Unsung.   I learn stuff.  If you’ve got a favorite R n’ B act you’ve been jonesing to find out what they’ve been up to after they fell off the charts and have been relegated to night clubs and state fairs, this is your show.   It’s about as good a Behind the Music clone can be since VH-1 killed that show off and resurrected it as an zombiefied version of the original.  .

Mirror Of God – insight by G. D. Grace

IMG_0725[1]Regret was a frequent visitor in the lives of those who were too afraid to step into their role of greatness as they lived. It barred them from befriending the fearless and colorful — those different from the “normal” society. Rather than seeing an opportunity to engage in mystery of difference, they shunned the possibility of ever stepping outside that perfect box — the one penciled in with black and white drab.

The infinite soul of life is a beautiful tapestry of individuality. It is a marvelous stream of differences defined by race, culture, sizes, talents, IQ’s, abilities, inabilities…

Our individual mental and character traits were never intended to divide us…

No, they were meant to unite us.

I am proudest of our humanity when it comes together and defies bigotry, racism, homophobia, and sexism, because that is when it becomes a mirror of God’s love.

Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that his death was a suicide, a rep did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December. He had recently signed on to reprise his beloved role as Mrs. Doubtfire in a sequel to be directed by Chris Columbus, and was last seen opposite Annette Bening in the indie film The Face of Love. His sitcom The Crazy Ones premiered on CBS last fall, but was…

“Move On” – random thoughts by G. D. Grace

Some enter our lives compliments of a destiny already written, and their purpose is revealed through mutual experiences shared together. Not all are joyful, as a matter of fact, some are downright painful, and even then we usually emerge stronger and wiser — those of us who understand that God makes no mistakes. When it’s time, we know when to move on — most of us.

That old cliché about some people being in our lives only for a season holds more truth than I ever thought. Sometimes we hold on so tight we lose part of ourselves in a relationship that was intended to run its course for a specified time only.

When we want what we want, regardless of how internally wrecked it leaves us feeling, it’s almost as if we revel in the pain subconsciously.

“No Human is God” – random thoughts by G. D. Grace

There was a sadness in his eyes, and they held a horror that only he knew. Hundreds pass him by as he sits curbside on a busy street corner near a random sewer, one of a hundred in the bustling city he calls home.

His was a tale of physical and mental abuse from the hands of a woman he loved more than life itself. In the beginning, her smile radiated a profound love so tender, that he found himself willing to do anything to appease her every want and fill her innermost desires.

She was worth the sacrifice, and when he lost himself within her allure, he became the pitiful fool she despised. So now he sits spiritually broken, dwelling in the aftermath of a self inflicted sorrow of his own design.

He had made another human being his God, and the wrath of failure floods his soul each time he guzzles the 80 proof cocktail to deaden the pain.

Didn’t he realize…

no human is God?
