On Sunday I was a guest on the Pink Lady Presents web television show. She films at LA Talk Radio where I met some amazing people before my show. I met an 80-year old vivacious and energetic woman who has been doing Tang Soo Do Karate for the past 30 years. She looked 30 years younger than she is.
I also met a documentary producer. We have some common interests and have already been communicating since then.
Pink was really charming. She really enjoys performing. She was supportive and asked me some cool questions.
I performed the song, “Starting Over Again,” on flute. I played solo. Then I recited the poem, “Dreams and Ambitions of a Gentleman.” Next we discussed my novel, Masonic Kung Fu. I wanted to keep going…
