I had the pleasure of meeting Belma Johnson today (you may recognize him from “Gabrielle” or the various BET/DIY shows he’s hosted) and was lucky enough to have a few minutes of his time to pick his brain. What an inspiration! He shared some of the touchstone moments/events in his life which created the person he is today.
I swear this man has the energy of someone who drank an entire vat of Red Bull… and then some.
And he was nice enough to sign and give me the very last copy of his book “What Do You Dream?” he had with him. In fact, it was the copy he used during presentations and workshops, so it was slightly worn. He kept apologizing for the condition of the cover, but I kept insisting it was the contents of the book that I really cared about. And besides, who else can say they have the book he was actually using?!
Anyway, his book is beautiful (full-color) and inspirational and I hope that I’ll have another chance to learn from him soon. If you’re in the L.A. area, check out his workshop schedule… I definitely will get myself to one within the next month!
