Don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine. Just don’t look into my eyes.

No, this is not me expressing the way I am feeling at this moment, so please do not be unnecessarily concerned by this quotation.

This is me pointing out what I see in other people right now. I see bravado. I see hope. But I also see a deep-seated fear that our world is going astray, quickly.

I would have to imagine that this is a recurring feeling throughout human history, predicated upon so many external variables that might have been happening at that point in time.

When circumstances are difficult, humans are, in many cases, capable of bolstering confidence, determination and fortitude, so as to weather whatever circumstance they might be encountering.

But underneath all of that fortitude, lies a fragile creature working every angle they might…in order to survive and to help those around them thrive.

I have noticed the opportunities that are coming to life within Sizzle are progressively more and more slanted towards helping humanity, rather than just entertaining or selling or providing diversion. This is clearly a sign of the times.

Perhaps my aphorism for today gives you cause to recognize this behavior in someone that you care about. If so, perhaps this morning message may be a stimuli for you to reach out and touch someone who is just barely holding on. I am certain they need this level of communication to further calm their internal soul that is struggling to find reason and meaning for their unrelenting fear and apprehension.

Sometimes, just knowing that someone else is out there who cares about what we are battling, can make all the difference in a person’s life.

The time expenditure taken in providing comfort is so minuscule, but the effect of receiving that comfort can be so monumental.

So the next time someone says to you, “Don’t worry about me,” acknowledge the fact that they are looking to express that they have everything under control, but perhaps underneath that veneer lies someone in complete trepidation of what is.

I believe it’s up to us to watch for those whom we love and care about and provide support in any emotional fashion that might be appropriate.

It is a beautiful sunny day here in Southern California, the rain has stopped and the wildflowers on the mountain are working desperately to come up out of the ground and smile at the warming rays of luminance🌞

Happy Saturday!

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!
