I first posted the above photo for a Christmas 2016 installment titled Santas, Wizards, & Life behind the Curtain. But the photo is older than that. From back in the 90s, when my father was enjoying a successful third act as a professional model.
I believe the Santa gig was part of an ad campaign for a major department store. At any rate, for a few weeks in the winter of 1997, my dad could be seen kicking back on bigger-than-life billboards all over the city. You couldn’t miss him. He was everywhere.
Not so with me. After a round of productive development meetings in October and a series of blogs following last month’s American Film Market, I’ve been pretty much off the radar, focused on turning out what I trust will be the final draft of a major project. The writing will likely continue until March. And since I’m not much for multitasking, my posts will probably remain sporadic until then.
So for now, here’s to another year. Let’s do what we can to make it amazing.
Be well, stay safe and happy holidays!
