Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 45 – Kismet (Season Finale)

For the season finale of LWG, I had the honor to share time with September Williams, MD and Sarah E. Kornfeld. My words are going to fall short at this time to describe who they are and what our conversation was about. I can say it was at a telling time in US History as a new supreme court justice had been nominated and was going through the hearings involved with the confirmation process.

This was taped about a month ago and a lot has transpired since that taping. Besides an overall uplifting, what I recall that wonderful afternoon spent with September and Sarah, is the healing communication regarding the charged political event of that confirmation process  — and the overall bravery I witnessed in both women.

Since words are falling short, or time and energy on my part, I am posting from their bios more about September & Sarah.

September Williams is an American physician-writer, bioethicist and filmmaker. All of her work seeks a better understanding of and between ourselves. She focuses on promoting resilience for people who are ill, aging, dying, or stressed by environmental and humanitarian violation. Yet, her writing is fired by the humor which allows people and characters to make it through hard times. Her first novel, and the first in a series of three books, is Chasing Mercury, a romance-suspense-memoir about families committed to human and environmental rights.

September’s nonfiction writing covers health disparities, bioethics and film. She is a member of the National Writers Union (AFLCIO/UAW 1981), an affiliate of the International Federation of Journalists, and the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities. (She is also the founder of Cove International Publishers and published The Elephant In the Room: Bioethical Concerns in Human Milk Banking early last month.)

Sarah Kornfeld‘s experience with seizure, art and the ocean as medicine led her to write What Stella Sees, an adventure in magical realism in which all characters are forced to face creatures from their own depths. What Stella Sees, weaves a complex tale of love, art, and transformation spanning from San Francisco to Israel, Bucharest to Paris.

Kornfeld was born and raised in the experimental theater that is New York City. She is a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College and has taught cultural curation at the University of San Francisco. Sarah is a founding member of the Blue Mind Collective studying the impact of the ocean on our lives and well-being.

Sarah is a proud member of the National Writers Union. She was published in The Journal of Brand Strategy out of the United Kingdom*. Her debut novel is published by Cove International Press. www.sarahkornfeld.net

 

…the more i discover about who i was in the room with — the more I realize what an honor it was that they shared their time with me. I hope you enjoy their company as well. And I hope to see you next year for season six of LWG.

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 44 – Quality

I had the honor recently to spend time with one very near to my heart: Sequoia Chenoah Roane.

She is amazingly creative; an artist extraordinaire! She is immersed in exploring what Life is, a practitioner of Nature’s Wicca ceremonies…

I had some expectations for what we’d talk about and how things might go. Luckily, I was wrong—and therefore just had a wonderful piece of her time and energy.

I hope you, too, enjoy this Quality time!

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 43 – Controversy

I’m really happy with this episode… and I can’t remember why.

Other then the “go live” date, I can’t remember why Controversy for a title seemed appropriate.

I know we got into a pretty depthy conversation about 9/11 — I don’t remember if it was/is on tape.

So, without any further prologue, I introduce to you; artist extraordinaire: Alex Sandor

(and if you find yourself in marin and wanting some creative styling with your hair, see if you can get a hold of him. you shan’t be sorry.)

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 42 – Ode to Andy Warhol

I think the title of this episode really says everything there is to say about this episode… except that i would spend forever in the presence of my children if that was an option.

This episode is probably for me more so then anyone else…

And, please, enjoy the show!

I have been in the Distribution and Logistics industry for over twenty years, building and managing teams at all levels of warehouse distribution and logistics. I have management experience in Food Service Distribution and Manufacturing as well as Wholesale/Retail Distribution. My strength is in creating processes that will streamline operations, creating improved efficiencies, tighter inventory control and then teaching those processes to the entire team. I believe that a strong operations team, delivering the best customer service, is essential to the growth of a company.

The above is my brother’s professional bio. He is one of the most amazing minds I know in warehouse and distribution… and he is so much more then that.

He ain’t heavy; he’s my brother.

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 40 – Grace

Terri Tate is a psychiatric nurse specialist and inspirational humorist. Terri was first diagnosed with disfiguring oral cancer in 1991, and is now a nationally recognized speaker and storyteller; a consultant who uses lessons from her own struggle to help support anyone facing life challenges; and a stand-up comedian with a popular one-woman show, Shopping as a Spiritual Path.
(From Terri Tate’s book, A Crooked Smile.)

It was an absolute pleasure to be in Terri’s company and hear her stories… this is one of my longest episodes I believe. For me, it wasn’t long enough. I hope I am honored with more of her presence.

I hope you enjoy her company as much as I have.

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 39 – The Art of Inebriation

I had the opportunity to hang out with Nate Dogg and do some real talk regarding the art of inebriation.

I really think it’s best to let this one play… it is such a personal topic. and I think Nate covered it all perfectly!

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 38 – Sensitive Skin

Season Five continues with special guest, Bernard Meisler, Editor-in-Chief of Sensitive Skin Magazine.

We speak of old, affordable times in cities, art and struggle…

And we emulate the Nixon tapes; sadly. (Yes, in my fifth year – I lost footage. )

Sensitive Skin features art, writing and music without rules or boundaries by both famous and emerging artists, writers, and musicians from around the globe.

Live With Greg – Season 5 Episode 37 – Let’s Spare This Cloud Dweller

Season Five begins with a wonderful being I met in Mysore practice; Jenny Wade. She is publishing a book:

Mayakovsky
Maximum Access

selected poems by Vladimir Mayakovsky
translated by Jenny Wade

She enlightens me with the depth and breath of Russian poetry; especially of Vladimir Mayakovsky… a Russian Soviet poet, playwright, artist, and actor.

Her dedication in her book states, “To all the fools who abandoned “shameful good sense” and fell in love with Russian poetry.

And her Author’s Biography:

Jenny Wade is a musician and computer programmer who suffers from an obsession with 20th century Russian poetry. She has an MA in Russian Literature from UVA.

Live With Greg – Season 4 Episode 36 – Life Constellations

Season four ends with Rev. Katherine Revoir. I’ve practiced with Katherine for a while, and was very fortunate to be granted this time spent with her… it is wonderful when opportunity allows me to see through my preconceived notions of an individual. I found in Katherine an experienced, kind, and supportive person… who has found her way through challenging times. As she said, she’s gotten down to her knees and stayed there. 🙂

I hope you enjoy this finale episode of season four… for more information about Rev. Katherine Revoir, please visit her site at http://richerliving.org
