I remain on location for “The Accidental President” pilot shoot. Watching things up close and personal is very interesting. For example, in pre-production there is the planning for everything: getting a finalized script (that will yield the desired running time), nailing down locations,...

My lucky table at The Beanery wouldn't be easy to identify in a line up.  It looks like all the other tables, non-descript modern blonde 'wood' that's half again my laptop's width.  The lucky table's critical difference is in location.  Up on the stage, in the corner, my back is...

I sit in the space, on a boulder, hidden. The sound of the water flowing from a pipe into the pond is like a gurgle. I like it, it is said this is akin to the sound of the womb,  that is why we humans like to be near the sound, near water. The goldfish , large and orange and gold, had been spotted...

Recently LocationIndependentProfessionals.com asked why we want to be location independent. "Whatever you're looking for you can find where you are." It's simply not true. We can get what we want and need where we are -- but not with a local solution. Try a psychic one. Take this week's...
