I was having a meeting with the Film Director I have been wanting to use for my television production , Peggs was with me, and was getting a bit bent out shape as she couldn't find the right type of protein food to eat whilst out, so instead settled for a can of full on full fat Coke!
I said to her * are you sure you want to go there Peggs?* *Yeah* she says nonchalantly...
OooKkkk, so I resume my hyperbole. Two minutes later Peggs looks up from her phone and says *Jo Jo just texted, ICI is in*. I say *oh that's great*... Peggs is grinning from ear to ear, and our Film Director says, *wow , congratulations, that is great news*
I know the news has not hit me yet, as I am not feeling anything, and carry on with the meeting. When we are done, Peggs looks at me and says *WE GOT ICI!!!* and I say *Yippie*, still not fully factoring in what this all means... yes I have delayed reaction syndrome, never try to throw me a surprise party..
When I get home, my really good mate Mikey, is on skype and has BIG news to tell me, so I say the same to him, that I have BIG news to tell him too, so we begin to type in capitols so we know that we are shouting at each other with our news! And only when he says, * you may not realize how pleased I am for you , I have a huge grin on my face* is when it really sunk in. Then I got the goose bumps, and when my best friend Ana texted congrats from France, that was it, you talk about rocking the house... Miz thang here had it goin on!
I can*t tell you how much of a good mood I was in the next day, but it felt and still feels really goooooddd. As I said to Ana, my dreams are becoming my reality.

Hideyhooo! It has been a full-on last couple of months. With the TV show actually going into production, we have been splitting all the meetings between my two EP*s, Peggy, Joanna and myself. Sometimes there were just too many meetings squeezed in and we were left feeling like zombies at the end of the day!
Happily though it is paying of, we have several Real Estate Developers on board, including some lifestyle products as well, the show is shaping up quite nicely and we are all very excited about our shoot, as exhausted as we are !
Having to keep quiet about the show, which is called Art of Living, has been hard, but we believe the time is right now, to step it up a notch and start doing some teasers and viral info bytes to create a bit of awareness and hopefully piqued everyone*s interest. Facebook and Twitter have been the first we have used to do this, the answers from our friends have been really funny! I am just waiting to see what people think we should name this show!! heh heh!
Mariana has kindly designed the Art of Living font which we are using as the show*s logo, it is as usual, wonderfully illustrated, and we have asked another good friend who specialises in web design to begin work on our website www.artoflivingshow.com. I have been trying to be a smart a**s by fiddling around on i web to upload some pages I created for the www.cleidenproductions.com web site, yes try going there.. all you will see is, work in progress.. just like my attempts!!!
coming to a station near you!
