Dreaming of retiring in a foreign country to have creative time? = Expats Musical
Happy New Year... for 2019!
Dear Special One,
It feels good to say hello again! The last time I wrote was in October, so it is time to reconnect. I hope you’ve had a great rest and celebration over the holidays! I love having a reset for the New Year, as it’s a wonderful opportunity for change. I’ve decided to have a crisp start for a new era, and I’m excited about the possibilities of a refreshed life!
Last year, my partner and I filmed several short videos. It takes a long time to get them ready for public viewing. So this will be one our priorities this year, to get new videos and newsletters up online for you to check out. It is our way of staying in touch.
I thank everyone for their wonderful email responses, and I’m doing what I can to reply. If you haven’t heard from me yet, know that I have a queue and I intend to write back when possible. I do send you a big heart wave of love bubbles for your sweet personal letters!
For this newsletter, I wanted to feature my partner George Gliszczynski as a guest writer and film-maker! He has created his own video channel of his work! Please check out his article below for more details. He is such a wonderful human-being, a creative talent, intelligent, and wise too! George is also incredibly generous and very loving. He shares his works below from his heart.
One of the parts of his new video collection 'Expats' is a theatrical musical that I was a part of. I appear briefly at the end of the show in the last three parts (7, 8, 9) in a cameo role as a burlesque dancer. I also helped out behind the scenes as a video & editing assistant. It was a fun experience to learn to work with a large creative team, developing an original artistic project.
Regarding creativity, I hope you find space in life to explore your unique imagination. Making time to journal original ideas is soul rejuvenating! Sometimes after several days of putting out a few pieces, one can have an 'aha' moment of a major brainstorm for your metaphorical jigsaw puzzle.
I hope you have the most amazing New Year... for 2019,
...with a serious dose of creativity :-)
Here's to fortitude for ones happy New Year's resolutions!
Love & ethereal hugs,

To all my friends, family, and colleagues, I have finally posted my new YouTube channel. It features 16 videos that I filmed here in Cuenca, Ecuador. These represent four distinct categories of video productions that were made for people I worked with over the last couple of years.
The first category is Entertainment. It was the stage production of the original musical comedy "EXPATS - The Musical", produced by and performed at Fishbon del Sur. This very entertaining show reveals a glimpse of what life is like for Expats living in a "third world" country. So, for those of you who where part of it, the HD quality version is finally available for you to watch and share with friends. Those who may have missed seeing the live performance here in Cuenca can now enjoy the video of this bold and bawdy show. It features music, dancing and clever sketches which I'm sure will make you laugh and maybe even cry.
The second category is Comedy. Integrated into the above "EXPATS - The Musical" were 5 distinct video comedy skits that where filmed at large in the city. These hilariously scripted videos contributed to the continuity of the live stage show and are now available to watch separately in HD quality.
The third category is Music. Produced for "SHADES PROJECT" here in Cuenca, they highlight two wonderful live Studio Recordings of original songs featuring Hayley Jacqueline and her band plus a live concert at Fishbon del Sur as well as an insightful interview with Hayley about the project.
The fourth category is Spiritual. Produced with my partner, also known as "Priestess Sahara", these six videos give insights into her teachings.
The following link below will take you to my YouTube channel where all the above videos are neatly categorized into playlists. Please subscribe to my channel and if you like the videos, please push the like button. Any additional comments are welcome. And please share the link with your friends and families.
Thank you and enjoy!
