I’m coming  out  the house this weekend and I  can’t wait to hit this event.  It’s like a coming out  event  for Me, so many people  know of Me  but have never  Me. I’ve been out the  house recently more in Baltimore. This  past weekend  I had My second radio interview in two weeks to promote this site as well as My other  business ventures. I’ve been asked to come back and co-host on  March 31st.

Casting: Becky’s New Car, Stage Play In Seattle, Washington Filling Multiple Roles.

Twelfth Night Productions will be performing Steven Dietz’s “Becky’s New Car” in 2017. Auditions Start December 10th.

Production: “Becky’s New Car” by Steven Dietz
Directed by Jane Ryan
Produced by Twelfth Night Productions

Synopsis: Becky’s husband is a roofer, her adult son lives in the basement, and her job at the car dealership takes up too much of her time. In Steven Dietz’s surprisingly interactive play, the audience becomes the confidante of a woman facing a mid-life crisis arriving in the form of an attractive older man who buys multiple cars at a time. Assumptions are made, details not fully communicated, and events become chaotic, comic, and serious at the same time. Dietz writes engagingly complex characters; each a gem of humanity textured with absurdity.

  • JOE FOSTER — Becky’s husband, a roofer, late 40’s
  • CHRIS FOSTER — their son, a psychology student, 26

We’re Turning One!!! Happy Birthday To Us

Happy 1 Year Birthday To Us

    Happy 1 Year Birthday To Us

When I look at the site it’s hard for Me to believe I started this as a little side project a year ago. I just wanted some place to  share and promote things that mattered to Me that  didn’t correlate with the adult entertainment side of My business. I can’t say that the site  has matched My vision YET but  for  one year it sure has done better than I expected.

Having the responsibility of  finding talent led Me to pay attention to things I hadn’t before and that opened so many doors for Me. I  had been so focused on Myself for so long that  taking time to focus on others has given Me immeasurable pleasure.

London Le Blanc Magazine

London Le Blanc Magazine

Last week I teamed up  with  London Le Blanc Magazine  and now  will be a contributing writer monthly starting December 2015. I’ve been given 2 pages a  month for 2 separate interviews or articles. I’m so excited, that  gives Me the opportunity to offer not only  the opportunity to be featured here but to be published as well. I recently had the pleasure of  interviewing a Playboy Playmate as well for a different magazine. All I  do is to bring attention back to sites like this and My other personal projects. All I do is  to promote and offer the best resources to you. You can follow London Le Blanc on Facebook at

I’ve also decided to  add a new section to the site for 2016, Sapphire’s  Jewel and I will feature a model a month. Look out for new site design and updates. Happy Thanksgiving you guys and  don’t forget  SUBMIT TO BE FEATURED OR GET YOUR MUSIC PLAYED ON THE SITE  at sapphirespotlightontalent@gmail.com

Are You Being True To Yourself? Follow Your Passions To Peace and Prosperity

follow your passion

Have you ever felt stuck in  the life you’ve created for yourself? Your life may be  going just fine on the surface, you’re employed, you’re managing to pay your bills, you have a wonderful spouse. But you live the same routine every day, day in and day out only daydreaming about the life you wished you lived. At some point in time we all find that we feel stuck. The question is how long will you allow yourself to  go on like that. Will you ever pursue your dreams and be real to your authentic self or will you just go on living a mediocre life?

Follow-Your-Passion-and-Success-will-Follow-You

Follow-Your-Passion-and-Success-will-Follow-You

 

We all have bills to play , we all have responsibilities and many of us have excuses for why we are not living the life we dream of living. Some of the biggest excuses we  give ourselves for not chasing our dreams are

  • Not enough free time
  • Wont pay enough to survive
  • Not enough outside support
  • Fear
  • It’s never been done before so it’s impossible
follow your dream

follow your dream

The reality is that whether we pursue our passions or allow them to lie dormant they are always in the forefront of our minds. When something is is your  blood, in your heart, no matter how much you try to push the thought of it aside you will not be able to shake what’s inside of you.

There will be people who tell you you’re crazy. People will not always see your vision and that’s perfectly fine. Everyone is not meant to see, feel or understand what you do. For that very reason alone, because you may have something unique, maybe even innovative to add to the world you must be willing to follow the little voice inside guiding you towards your dream life.

Just do it

Just do it

 

It won’t be easy. Change never is, fear  can  ground even the  mos talented, passionate individual. Fear of change, fear of inadequacy and even fear of success is a huge deterrent for some. I guarantee it will take some 20 hour days, some sleepless nights, it may even take a year worth of ramen noodles and boiled eggs for dinner but the journey towards your authentic self is it’s own reward.  Some of the most important reasons for pursuing your passions and living to your own authentic self and include but aren’t limited to

  • One of the things people regret most at the end of their lives are the chances that they didn’t take in life.
  • You will never  feel complete by trying to live to someone else’s standards of success. Defining what success means for yourself allows you to not just pursue a goal but enjoy the journey towards it.
  • Pursuing what your or others see as an unrealistic  goal to so many others will teach you more about life than any training class for a dead end job. The person who has failed 100 times is 100 times more knowledgeable than the person who hasn’t even tried once.
  • Following  your dreams will inspire those around you to  reach for higher goals. If you have  children this is extra important  because it’s imperative that we teach our children to  dream and that all things are possible through hard work, dedication and flexibility.
  • Pursuing  your dream doesn’t mean you have to quit your job or let your family  starve. It does mean that you will have to be willing to  sacrifice a little and  add new habits to your routine. You have to be willing to keep pushing even if everyone around you thinks you’re stark raving mad. Rome wasn’t built in a day so don’t expect your life to suddenly change because you picked up a paint brush, a hammer or instrument. Pursuing your passion is a journey towards finding yourself. The joy is not in the destination but the road you travel along the way.
teach your kids

Those with little money, little free time or maybe too many excuses can find ways to easily incorporate their passion int their daily lives.

  • Sports enthusiast? Injured  or a little old to play? If you can’t play, coach! Volunteer with a local school, church or community center. You never  know what opportunities it may lead to.
  • Get up a hour earlier each day and set that time aside to practice or focus on your passion.
  • Check local community colleges, community centers and churches for free or discounted workshops OR the opportunity to teach one yourself.
  • Take advantage of opportunities to show off your passions, whether it’s speaking to a group on a topic related to your passion, volunteering or preparing something to sell or perform at local farmers markets, festivals and amateur showcases.
do something

do something

 

There are many other ways to work your passion into your daily life. You may not be able to jump right into your dream job or position but the more you immerse yourself in your passion  the  closer you get each day. You open yourself to opportunities that you  never will get sitting on the couch wondering what if.

Any goal is achievable when the right amount of determination, dedication, time and effort are applied. If I could leave with with a few last words of advice I’d remind you that

  • A Plan of action is key. Set S.M.A.R.T. goals S (Specific) M (Measurable) A (Attainable) R (Realistic) T (Timely)
  • Don’t focus as much on the destination as you do on the journey
  • Ignore the naysayer. Everyone is not meant to see your vision.
  • Define success on your own terms. You hold the key to your happiness, not your friends, family or the strangers who make up our society.
follow your dreams

OrchKids – These Young Musicians Blew My Mind

Orchkids

Orchkids

Have you ever  just happened to wander in on  something  so beautiful you found yourself stuck in a trance as you tried to take it all in? That’s what happened to Me this summer at Artscape as I wandered around  tent to tent, building to building soaking in all the  creativity  that flowed. I somehow ended up in one of the Mica ( an arts colleges) buildings and  saw a lot of people milling about on a lower level.

OrchKids performance

OrchKids performance

My friend and  I followed the flow of people and  walked into a  concert that was already in progress. The sight shocked Me, the  music  coming from the  stage was so sharp, and  beautiful but  I was not ready for the musicians, they were all children. The oldest looked about 14 maybe. These children were  playing  music with the talent of well trained  adults who had studied the  craft for years.

OrchKids is a year-round, during and after school, music program designed to create social change and nurture promising futures for youth in Baltimore City neighborhoods. Under Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s Music Director, Marin Alsop’s artistic leadership and direction, OrchKids is the cornerstone of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s efforts to expand their relevance within the broad and diverse Baltimore community. (From the website)

This group of talented youth have even been recognized by the First Lady, Michelle Obama who presented them with an award for excellence on Thanksgiving 2013. I  was  so lucky to happen upon them  performing and was quick to whip out My camera. I captured four  videos and uploaded them to youtube at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCe_NSxP-NWTFCoSQDLyphvg
