Nobody ever said it would easy, Breezy

Moving the bar forward in creativity,” are words that John lived by, so it’s hard to say goodbye. He was quick to conceptualize, pre-visualize, and appreciate the beauty of authenticity — for just what it is, all that it encompasses and the dimensions of what it has to offer. He was quoted as saying, “When you try to make it [films] homogenized, when you try to make it appeal to everybody, then you don’t have anything that’s special,” and I agree with him – his knowledge was breezy. Though for all of the wisdom and talent that he put in – nobody ever said that it wold be easy 

and it wasn’t.
He was a son, a father and [ex] husband

long before he ever made his degreed path good
by producing Ice Cube ‘nem in BOYZ N THE HOOD.

An intellectual – he stood and I noticed.
Women flocked his presence hoping to score a kiss,

a stint on the scripted screen…
but John largely seemed to be doing his thing:

laying low key and producing much screen drama.
He was a bonafide job creator and even hired his Moma.

Yep. He did that.
JS was a pretty chill cat.

His sign: Capricorn
and I’m sure that he rammed against the norms
from the day that he was born.
You know ‘dem Caps got horns

and gall.
Without such buck reel change would have stalled.

I’m going to miss Sir Singleton —
and will guardian his purpose that it not be undone.

I, too, agree with John’s vision that we must tell our own tales,
and I’ll be sure not homogenize my scripts to hell.

Thanks for that advice big bro.
I appreciated your arrival and am effected by your go.

Who knew the sun would yellow so soon.
I look at your work and it still looks like noon.

Amazing.
I hope you know ‘you had that thing.

That thing that makes movie cash registers ring!

God bless your kids – may residuals continue to sing.

It wasn’t easy. Nobody ever said that it would be.
We won’t forget you too soon – you made reel look breezy.

When your truth is too true

FACT: The title of this piece was provided by a person who was self-evaluating. And no, the person was not me.

Brutally honest folks who mean well should consider the following information before each honest delivery:

“Truth and honesty without compassion is brutality.”

I suppose I should know,
I’m an honesty-wielding Leo.

Yessir, and yes ma’am, -I’m confessing to you kinfolk:
with retrospection and honesty, I can impale another’s throat.

I often preface  though, “the following won’t be pretty, but it is honest reality…”
Often times the receiver is their best amen choir & believer – and may get mad at me.

Everybody wants honesty but not as it pertains to what they (themselves) do.
Right?
I cannot nourish your plight and recommend A FEW GOOD MEN for movie night –
because “you can’t handle the truth.”

I dig ol’ Bader Ginsburg, Ruth and McKinnon, Kate of SNL.
When it comes to lasting impersonations, Kate brings the judicial hail.

Still, I’ve always known that my most honest deliveries could use a little more tact.
I thank my mom for my compassionate heart and my dad for holding nothing back.

I am indeed Redd’s daughter; I am honest and I preface – please do not take offense.

‘loving the honest quote that I heard on TV. I’m working on me and the quote makes good sense.

What show was I watching? Well, now that’s a good question.
This show is the best yo, it’s called MARRIED TO MEDICINE.

The truth and honesty quote is stronger than an espresso brew.
If you’re not a sugar-coater of truth, does this quote at all apply to you?
