OK, SO IT’S ONLY APPROPRIATE THAT I WRITE ABOUT THE WINSLOW CRASH OF 2014 ON THE

NIGHT OF THE SUPERMOON! TOUCHE, THEY SAY! IT TOOK ME AN HOUR JUST TO LOG IN TO THIS

SITE, SINCE YOU MAY KNOW THAT THE OLD PLACES DON’T RECOGNIZE THE NEW COMPUTER:)

JUST ONE OF THOSE HAPPY LITTLE THINGS THAT TAKE A BIT OF GETTING USED TO. MY WEB

GENIUS ALSO POSTED MY POEM SOMEWHERE IN HERE, BUT I CAN’T FIND IT. SURPRISE! AFTER

THE SCARE OF LOSING MY NEW BOOK, NOTHING COULD REALLY CAPTURE THAT ANGST, SO NO

WORRIES! NOW I SEEM TO HAVE THIS VERY ODD SKIPPING ABOUT OF THE WIFI AND SPEED

THAT GOES FROM FAST TO DREARY. ALL THAT REQUIRES PATIENCE, WHICH IS NOT ONE OF MY

STRONG SUITS, BUT I AM LEARNING ABOUT THAT TOO. LUCKY FOR ME, SHE IS BUSY GETTING

READY TO MOVE INTO A FAB NEW HOUSE, SO I HAVE HER ATTENTION:)

I DON’T THINK WE REALIZE HOW MUCH WE COME TO DEPEND UPON OTHERS FOR OUR

WELFARE UNTIL THE HIGH WIRE ACT OF LIFE ACTS UP. THAT’S WHEN YOU KNOW HOW GOOD

IT IS TO HAVE ALL THOSE “PRIVATE PHONE NUMBERS”, HAHAHA! YOU SAID I COULD CALL YOU

ANYTIME, SOHERE I AM AT 4AM! NOT REALLY CRAZY TONITE, JUST A BIT MAD, THE FORCES OF

NATURE ARE BATHING THE GREEN EXPANSE BEHIND ME IN A BRIGHT FULL BLAST OF LIGHT

WHICH PROVES ONCE AGAIN THAT WE ARE BUT MORTALS HERE, DOING OUR TIME. THE POST

SCRIPT IS A FABULOUS NEW BIG SCREEN FOR MY UTUBE FILMS, NEW CHAPTERS ALREADY IN

THE BOOKS AND THIS GREAT NEW TOM PETTY MUSIC CALLED THE HYPNOTIC EYE!

 

GOOD BYE!

Well I can’t even describe the smile on my face when I can back from a full day of snorkeling, cave diving, spear fishing, a little frolicking, dinner, drinks and a game of dominoes to find a warm hearted blog post from my good friend back home. Vacation is wonderful and it’s even better when you know there are good people who care about you when you make it back to the real world. I love my real world and I love my peeps! XO J-Dub!!

I was forced to face up to some tough choices in April, and flew into a tizzy about the confusion and hopeless mess of everything changing at once! Not sure why this happens, but it seems to come in spurts, or maybe PHASES is a better word? the muse doesn’t want me to get TOO happy, God forbid, so both my TV shows went down, (through no fault of my own), no production facility, to on-air guests, no blasts to remind the fans. NOTHING!
AMP Media
The first few days were kind of relaxing, I could feel my body chill out. I was sleeping like a baby, dreaming of peaches and cherry blossoms and savory men. Of course, the WINSLOW fireball came rolling back, and then I was alarmed. People were calling, and sending notes; WHERE ARE YOU? And better yet, where are your wonderful guests?

In the meantime, I dipped my toes into the world of fundraising for a wonderful project in the theater of the Museum of Monterey, where AMP media (public TV for the central coast and the WORLD) wants to broadcast live shows! Public invited, audiences culled from visitors to the area, friends, fans of the guests, you name it. Not to bore you, but that area is WAY harder than you would think. everyone who has money is constantly asked to “help out”, and the really big spenders have a system within the Grants area, which takes a genius to maneuver.

So today I find myself back on track with a new show coming soon, a new set and host: AMP MEDIA, who noticed my work a long times ago. We will be on the air on May 15th, but you must go to my website and see what the wizard has done:)

Lots of love,

Gotta wonder today about the sanity of the world, walking on a beach that is totally empty, Saturday afternoon, where is everyone? HA, WELL YOU DON’T KNOW, DO YOU?

Unless you live here, the AT&T Pro Am golf tourney may not be a familiar event, but anyone local knows we are totally OVERRUN with the guests! Particularly if you live in “the forest” which is what we call Pebble Beach, you are quite aware of the preparations, beginning months ago.

The army of volunteers who assist at the tournament, which features celebrity golfers as well as the pros, is tremendous in their effort to make everyone feel comfy. Then there is the Pebble Beach Company staff and crew, all first rate folks, who attend to the every need of the visitors. By the time the games begin, early in the week, thousands of hours have been logged to prepare. It is QUITE A SHOW!

MEANWHILE, we hide out in unlikely places like home, use alternate routes, watch the news and play on TV! If you are like me, the golf course is your back yard, so just wake up and watch them tee off! I found several stray balls this morning on my usual garden tour, NO WORRIES, they missed the bedroom window:)

My answer to the BIG SHOW is to escape to my favorite place, BIG BLUE, the majestic Pacific, which normally is crowded with tourists. During the tourney, no tourists are allowed, since we are up to the HILT with bodies, so I am left to wander the KELP-RIDDEN SANDS alone, walk the boardwalk, wander SPANISH BAY, and slip home on the empty roads.

Best of all, I am happy to report a new CECILE BRUNNER, which has bloomed on schedule today, amidst the rain and wind, and golf balls and drought, WHO KNEW! Ain’t it grand?

We have the sun today, after a tiny tiny rain. who knew? this will be a special time because I have a new poem for my girl, who is spending her first valentines day in Heaven! it will be a sweet time, she is safe and happy and her dad is doing well!

xx:jw

P.S. HE WILL BE SURPRISED TODAY WHEN I SEND OUT A BLAST ABOUT CHELLE PIE, SO STAY TUNED. YOU WILL FIND THE POEM AT www.jwwinslow.com CLICK ON POEMS!

How to explain a Christmas in a place I hate, with someone I love dearly, watching a painful experience for her, and her dad, it is a very difficult time for them and for me. You watch and try to help, you decorate the tree, you make enchiladas without meat, which they all tease you about, and who cares about that stuff?

The real story is a twenty four year old girl turned woman, removed from her life on her eighteenth birthday in a tragic accident, never to return. She lives on this planet, she breathes and takes nourishment and walks with her family in a very special wheelchair on these sunny strange Christmas days. It is heartbreaking to witness, to live in a room where she is present 24/7, to see her pictures and photos and know she will never be there again. Most of all, her father has dedicated himself to her wellbeing, and cares for her with the help of some trusted people.

If I had to say which makes me feel worse, I’m not sure. Probably that she cannot breathe very well, all of a sudden, and sounds so terribly congested. But then I watch him take charge and spend his life caring for her, never complaining, happy that she is alive.

CHRISTMAS NIGHT ROSE 002 (640x480) (2)

This year, after all the cold snap, one amazing rose remained in his garden. It was a miracle rose, huge and bright orange, what a surprise. So we concentrated on that, natures little blessing to be thankful for, along with each other. How do you deal with a life you cannot control? I guess the answer is we don’t really control anything, so you take it day by day, minute by minute, and laugh your ass off when there’s a good reason.

That’s what we do, it has saved us every time.

AH, THE WARS BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN, THE DIFFERENCES, THE NEVER ENDING DISCUSSIONS THAT SURROUND OUR LIVES TOGETHER! IN THE TIME AFTER THE WORDS AND MUSIC SHOWS, I HAVE BEEN WAITING TO SEE THE FILM (JUST NOW GOT A PEEK AT THE “ROUGH CUT”) AND WONDERING WHAT THE PATH WILL BE.

IT WAS A LONG HAUL OVER THE SPRING AND SUMMER BOOK TOUR, AND I WILL ADMIT I PUT MUCH OF THE EMOTIONAL DEBRIS ASIDE FOR ANOTHER TIME. BEST NOT TO DWELL ON SUCH THINGS WHILE ON THE ROAD, YA KNOW?

NOW THERE ARE HINTS AT NEW PATHS FOR ME, PEOPLE ENTERING THE STAGE WITH IDEAS AND SCHEMES, THINGS I DID NOT EXPECT. IN THE MEANTIME, MY GREATEST COMFORT LIES WITHIN THE NEW PAGES OF BOOK NUMBER FOUR, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS MYSTIC ADVENTURES IN BIG SURE, VOLUME IV! I CAN’T TELL YOU THE TITLE YET, TOO CLOSE TO THE VEST:) I WILL SAY THIS: THE ACTION STARTS ON THE FIRST PAGE, AND DYANNA IS CHALLENGED TO PROVE HERSELF. WHAT ELSE IS NEW?

 

I’M EXCITED, AND PAINTING TWO NEW PIECES OF ART. ONE IS FOR MY BROTHER, HIS BIRTHDAY GIFT, AND THE CANVAS MATCHES HIS BEAUTIFUL GLASS BOTTLE. THEY SHINE OUT IN THE LIGHT OF THE LOGGIA, WHERE I SAVE MY SOUL EVERY DAY.
