Hello, Everyone. Corbin posted this a few hours ago:
"A month. How quickly a month goes. Four weeks. I know I said I was moving on from leading with a "mom story," but sitting back yesterday, looking at the road ahead I thought another day of silence and reflection was in order leading to today... a month of Wednesdays since my mom's passing.
And how magnificent the order of it all is! Up early today and heading back to Florida for the season final episode of The Glades. It was in Florida, shooting 3 back to back episodes of the The Glades that I got that call from my brother 7 Wednesdays ago... "mom's not doing well." 7 Wednesdays, what a profound difference that can make in one's life. We can completely derail - I've seen it happen more often than not - or we can find absolute focus and see clearly in all directions; past present and future. That has been my journey of the seven; focus. Absolute focus, and redirection toward simplicity and complete love.
We too have become an extended family in 7 weeks. Think about it. Sure, many of you knew "who I was" seven weeks ago, but I dare say you now really know me, at least as much as anyone can know anyone in this life. We have become friends, a family, confidants. Thousands of us. Think of what we can do with this community. Think how quickly we became a community. We are my mom's army, "Cooper Troopers" taking her life into the daily practice of our own and sharing it with others. Great messages as we've all discussed.
I did say the other day however that it time for me/us to move on and take those messages into the world while we reflect on our current lives. As most of you can imagine, family is everything to me. I've said it over and over. I've shared photos. As I looked back I saw that it really is the basis of my work as a writer and direction (stories often involving a mother/son relationship - clearly influenced by my mom. Every month or so my company (that makes the Films - Home Theater Films - puts out a newsletter or update about what we are doing in that regard. This month's letter - again curiously, as it was planned months ago - involved the importance of family and community to our films. I thought I'd share a link with you to check it out. If you want to continue getting these links every month you can simply hit "join" at the bottom. We are, much like here, building a community that shares our vision of a way to enrich the world through our films. This newsletter is of great importance to me because in the video there you can meet my family - my wife and kids, the center of my universe.
Off to Florida - a new day, a new month, a new chapter. Let's get it going. I love you mom, you are never forgotten and in my heart, soul, and each breath I draw."
