Dream Date - Collaboration of sorts ...
Cassidy’s hypnotic and very engaging invite didn’t leave much room for thought, it only increased the instinct not to deny my curiosity. She had me hooked from the moment I walked into the studio. I watched as she danced from space to space with sweet finesse and the gracefulness of Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.
Pandora’s Box - Gift
From a deep dark place in the woods, the sound of thunder cracks like a whip, piercing the darkness and snapping the silence within its density. The nocturnal critters and animals alike scurry for shelter. A blasting wind follows, rushing violently through the thick brush, streaming past the tall trees, chipping the bark from their trunk, and abruptly halts to a gentle breeze. Out from under the mist emerges an unknown figure.
Scene 2 - If your life was a musical
Scene 2 … interior 3rd bedroom, west side, second floor A dark blurb occupies our sight as the camera gently pulls away revealing a set of black shiny dress shoes. The perspective is at floor level rising off a grey coloured shag carpet. Gradually the scene exposes the entire picture of a young boy shuffling and pacing erratically.
If life was your musical
Lately, I’ve been quite curious to know, okay scratch that … it’s been more of an interest than a curiosity. As a young lad growing up, music always was an integral piece in our house. It sprouted my interests and passions. I was raised with wonderfully old Italian values and traditions, making our fruit and vegetable preserves, finely manufacturing our cured meats, sourcing, and producing our tomato sauces, to finally making a brand of wine that could literally have the potential to drop you where you stood if you decided to overindulge, sipping more than enough.
Dusk begins to settle over the horizon, the incredibly vibrant scene is quite enchanting, almost paralyzing. Two shadows appear to float along the boulevard like a wonderful dream. A cool gentle breeze catches them by surprise, rustling in and around the pair.
