Welcome! Lucky Post #1
Hello and welcome to Lucky Eight Productions/Rumin8tions. The man in the black shirt in the picture above is having his new scooter blessed before its maiden voyage. I don’t know what the equivalent of this would be in the world of blogs, but perhaps (as would seem to be axiomatic of the form) by simply blogging this picture, its “energy” will somehow be transmuted to the blog itself (and, by extension, to those who read it!). Here’s hoping that’s the case; that this blog travels safely; that it doesn’t slam into any sacred cows wandering across cyberspace; and that, somehow, it can serve as a place where the many strands of my life can come together and be happy. Movies, stories, television, screenwriting, copywriting, consciousness, design, illustration, India, Spain, Brooklyn, Topanga, kids, parents, piñatas, production … all will be here. And who knows, the following subjects might be covered as well (another photograph from Mysore):
A laundry list, indeed. But, hey — I’m lucky just to be here!
Speaking of which, this will be the first of (hopefully) A SERIES of entries on the subject of LUCK. I’m actually fascinated (but NOT obsessed!) by luck — how we relate to it (or don’t), and how sweet and uniquely human it is.
And speaking of that, I would like to dedicate this site to my father who passed away the week before it went live. I wish he could have seen it.
