...where distraction is the main attraction.

The Recap

As I was saying, distractions will corrupt one’s intentions.

But conversely, one’s intentions must shift with life. This is a little more personal than I usually get with my posts, but the last three years have been full of life:

My career:
As the 2008 election was in process, I wrote a political thriller. In June ’09 it got to a well-respected management company and scored me my two awesome managers.

In 2010, I wrote a script (for money!) for an independent producer.

This year, I’ve been writing a spec script for another producer that could lead to bigger and better things.

I quit my production accounting position with Discovery Studios so that I could focus on writing full time.

My family:
My family navigated financial troubles. My parents divorced. My grandmother passed away, age 92. The greatest cat in the world passed away, age 17. Keep moving. Nothing to see here, people.

My international travels:
Italy (Rome, Tuscany, Naples, Amalfi Coast), United Kingdom (3rd time, but 2nd trip to London), Ireland (3rd time, sigh).

My new family:
In March ’09, on Crisy Field in San Francisco, I proposed to Kristen Perry. She said yes. She got a ring. We had ice cream sundaes. It was a pretty good weekend.

In June ’10 we invited family, friends, and a rabbi, threw a killer party and called it a wedding. I am married. Michael Kravitz is married.

(Buried that lead nicely.)

“When I said, I would die a bachelor, I did not think I should live till I were married.” Right. That’s exactly what Benedick and I meant.

Kristen is a special person. If you haven’t met her yet, I hope that you have the opportunity soon. She’s brilliant, funny, peaceful, and beautiful. And the family that I have joined is fantastic.

I would be remiss if I didn't reference the hundreds of hours of film, music, and whisky that I've enjoyed as well.

Now that Diving for Pearls has been pulled from the mothballs, let’s get some work done.
