SHOW BUSINESS IS BASED ON RELATIONSHIPSA friend in Hollywood once explained to me that “Your success in show business won’t be based on your talents, but will be based on relationships” and that’s a bummer to me because the one thing I suck at is relationships, but that’s a whole other area to blog about…. I’ve been very blessed in this writing career to be able to surround myself with people that are not threatened by doing good work! I’ve been around both types of people, the ones that are threatened are ruthless and will do all they can to make you look bad and work at ruining reps, if they feel threatened by you and your work. It’s a horrible and heart breaking experience. The flipside, surrounding with people that ARE NEVER THREATENED is not only a blessing, but it’s a rarity and takes a lot of looking at monsters to find good people.SHOW BUSINESS IS BASED ON RELATIONSHIPS by TOMCAVANAUGH

Colonial Chestertown. Stage right is set as a pier with some crates and boxes. Stage left is furnished like a parlor. One chair and a small table with appropriate decoration (ex - table cloth and candlesticks).
