Miracles… Between the Lines

September 23rd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I’m so excited! (and a little nervous…)  I’m about to do an interview with Barry Kibrick on his award winning show, “Between the Lines.”

Here is what he emailed out to his subscribers:

From Barry Kibrick:

Barry KibrickDear Viewers:

Today is the first day it really feels like fall in Los Angeles.  It is also the first week that we get back to taping new episodes of Between the Lines.    Something about a new season and a new work schedule makes it officially feel like a new beginning.  I happen to be a fan of new beginnings.  I always enjoy the “firsts” of almost anything.  Be it the start of a new school year or any new adventure that comes my way.

For some, “firsts” are not so pleasing.  Change, new environments and other disruptions, cause more angst than joy.  No doubt, some change truly does disrupt our lives, but how we view that disruption can make all the difference in the world.

We’re all very different in that regard and in a book that will be featured on my first new episode back the author emphasizes that we must learn…  “To revere rather than dread the differences between us.” The author is Elaine Hall and her book is: Now I See the Moon. It is about providing insightful ways to deal with children with autism.  Her work was featured in the EMMY award winning HBO documentary Autism: The Musical which was about her program called; The Miracle Project.  Her first goal was to help her son Neal, but from it she literally creates “Miracles” for all who participate.    In her book she uses a quote by Albert Einstein that I want to share with you and that gives Elaine a perspective that helps guide her on her mission.

There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as if everything is a miracle. -Albert Einstein-

It truly is a choice we make.  For some it gives solace knowing that nothing is a miracle, for me, I cannot help but think that when we see all the wonder around us we truly enjoy the awe of life.  Of course, if you disagree, I promise to revere rather than dread that difference between us.    Have a great week, enjoy the miracles, Barry
