Sunday, September 28, 2008 I was busy working on a short film with a few of my co-workers. Over 70 takes and 10 hours later, we finished what I will share with you in a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, my brain was completely unaware of the fact that it was forgetting one of my best friends in the whole wide world and her birthday. UGH!!! I never forget birthdays… until now.
Four score and one year ago… er… I mean… Four decades and a year ago, Ms. Lyn Thomas was born to a world that would not be the same once she learned how to talk and teach others that she was fabulous and that everyone else should know. Lyn is an educator and intellectual, she is a single parent and supermom of two boys, she stands 6 feet tall and is even taller in presence, she is an artist and a writer, and because of her mixed heritage, she refers to herself as a half-breed. I would like to openly apologize for my tardy wish and publicly express to Lyn, “HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!“
