“Still, the thought of the words "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" had me shaking and crying and unable to speak. What a statement. What a beautiful, unselfish, loving, trusting statement.”
Adena Halpern, Target Underwear and a Vera Wang Gown: Notes from a Single Girl's Closet

“My bottom belly was gone! I'd contemplated having that thing sucked out many times, but if you've ever had a face-lift and a brow lift and felt the pain of that, it makes you pause before doing anything else too invasive.”
Adena Halpern

Leaning-Good Adena,
I read your bio, and think it maybe great to leave a post of my small thought here :

For me, South Korea is the best example one who restore their nation by the powerful movie their have created, and surely, it's came by the awesome script writing their'd made.

I believe that who is great in screenwriting, they can do anything else in the world, movie is the best of persuader; and screenwriting is the head for that [you already have that awesomest equipment in your hands !:]

Wonderful Regards,
:D
Suka

Carl Adena:

Thanks for the add and congratulations on your works!

Take a look at my website www.carledavid.com when you have a few moments.

My latest book, "Bader Field" was recently released by Nightengale Press and has moved everyone emotionally after reading it. I am working diligently on a media campaign so that it will reach as many people as possible and create a healing wave.

It is my way of "Paying it forward."

Regards from Philadelphia. I am also a native and our family art business is still here, now in its 4th generation.

Best,

Carl
