RUD: What She Had In Mind

The podcast of my presentation at "Red Umbrella Diaries: Family Affairs" entitled "What She Had In Mind" is now online.

I must admit that I was disappointed by the personal friends who promised to be there, but weren't for my appearance at "Red Umbrella Diaries: Family Affairs". However, knowing how every cloud has a silver lining, or looking at the glass as half-full instead of half-empty, I realized that in some way, those friends did me some degree of a favor by not showing up. They proved to me the quality of my writing. Because I know that the laughs and applause coming from the crowd were not a bunch of my friends simply humoring me. The laughs and applause were from a room full of people - strangers actually. Strangers truly appreciating my talent as a writer. Now, I hope my friends don't repeatedly put me in this kind of scenario. But because of what I got from it this time, with them, all is forgiven.

And I do give credit to those who didn't this past Friday when I presented "The Industry".

You can now hear my presentation by listening to it in your browser or downloading it from iTunes.
I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed presenting.

  1. You better watch as out Diesel Washington has today launched a highly vitriolic personal attack on you from his blog site.

    You have definitly got under his skin and he's out to fully discredit you.

  3. Dear David,

    I very much appreciate you being a fan, and the concern it brings forth.

    However, there is no need to concern yourself with Diesel Washington trying to discredit me. For it's IMPOSSIBLE. Any attempt to try and discredit me is made the age-old way of tabloid reporters taking PART of a statement or video, and twisting it around to satisfy their own envy. And the only ones who will believe anything that he says are (1)people who don't know me personally, and (2) people who are gullible and unbalanced as he himself is. Remember what they say about "birds of a feather"?

    Lastly, the time frame speaks for itself. While he's ALREADY written about me, I've been so busy dealing with POSITIVE after-math of that poetry reading, I haven't had time to post anything yet. So it's quite obvious as to whose life is more fulfilled by the goal of bettering themselves.

    Once again, I appreciate your concern. I will address his common behavior more in my report on the event, and I will do so while not reading anything he has to say at all. Thanks :-)

  4. You should read Deisel's blog as he has written an enormous long piece on you with videos and photos'.... a real tour de force of an article about you.

  5. Thanks for the heads up, but NO.

    I have my own projects to focus on. If Diesel has gone through that much trouble, it shows how DIESEL HAS NO PROJECTS TO BETTER HIMSELF TO FOCUS ON. Therefore reaffirming my last comment.

I HIGHLY respect those willing to stand behind their comments with a name. So if you use "Anonymous" on a viewpoint that challenges mine, IT WILL BE DELETED for your cowardice to not show yourself makes your viewpoint and you irrelevant.
