Today is Thanksgiving and I’m grateful. I have clean water and I had a peaceful night’s rest. I was able to wake up this morning, dress myself, and cook. I have healthy and active parents, gifted siblings, loving family members, and committed friends. I say this because I know sometimes I don’t consider the “little things” when I’m caught up in what I wish I could have or annoyed by those things not going the way I want. I know I have a way to go and become frustrated that I’m not there yet, but right now, I must express my gratitude.
On another note, I’ve begun looking for venues to host the world premier of “From Ophelia to Omega”. There’s a venue I visited in Midtown and the space is gorgeous! The main issue I have is that the stage is very small and there’s no back stage. But once I rent the space, I control the ticket prices. No sharing a percentage of the sales of my tickets with this particular venue. I would also like to have food available for patrons, but I can only use their vendors. As I consider the brand of my company, I cannot cheapen it by holding events in some ratchet space. I ask myself “Would Gucci hold an event here?” If I hesitate too long, I must move on. So Dream of Dréa must raise the necessary funds to make the event worthy. 2012 already looking great!
