I was so very saddened to learn of Sir Sean Connery’s passing when I woke up this morning. He was an actor who truly touched my soul on many an occasion.

Bond. James Bond.

There are so many movie quotes that are attributable to him.

“Do you expect me to talk?” So many iconic moments. Despite his overwhelming presence in the role of James Bond, when I think of Sean Connery, I think of movies like The Man Who Would Be King, The Great Train Robbery or The Wind And The Lion.

He had a natural charisma that only blesses a very select few people in life. He was both suave and sophisticated and like any human being with a paradox, there was also a misogynistic side to him that I did not respect. He was consummate at everything that he did and it was such a pleasure to grow up watching his work.

Of all of the possible quotations that I could have chosen for Sean, I chose this one because it truly exemplifies the love-hate relationship we all have working in Hollywood. There are those that make creative collaboration a passionate joy, and there are those that make it a living hell.

I suppose the yin yang of life is what makes life so magical. Either way, I thought the quotation was funny, and he has provided many a good laugh like the role he played in Indiana Jones series❤️

I close with his most iconic moment. And wish you a very happy Halloween👻

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
