Darnell Streat – Emperor’s Cut Cigars www.emperors-cut.com/

Nicky and I had a great discussion with Darnell about his new endeavors.  Darnell has cultivated a unique brand of cigars, that will be for sale in July.  A lot of thought and energy has been put into creating a unique cigar for those who enjoy a smooth, sensual taste that will relax you and take you away from all your problems.   Indulging in this cigar is like indulging in the rarest diamonds, it is game changing and a stand-alone brand.  Darnell’s product is so enticing, it made Nicky and I want to try it when they go on sale; and neither one of us are smokers.  Books, Wine and Emperor’s Cut Cigar – now doesn’t that sound heavenly.  Listen to the entire interview via the link below.

Dwayne Jones – Digital Graphic Artist https://www.facebook.com/dwayne.b.jones

We were happy to welcome Dwayne back to the show to discuss his first art exhibition in New York on July 22nd.  Dwayne is a very talented artist and deserves this opportunity to display his talent.  We encourage all to visit Dwayne’s Facebook page and purchase his stimulating pieces of work.   Nicky & I will try our best to make it to the exhibition and go live so all my Prosers can experience this upcoming fabulous display of art.

The Journey to Mara Prose – A Memoir told via Poetry!

My poetry memoir has somehow beat the Davenports onto Amazon. The eBook and Paperback are available right now and if you have Amazon Kindle Unlimited, it is completely FREE!

I initially paid a consultant to format the Journey to Mara Prose for Amazon, but it was nowhere near my standards. So the perfectionist in me stayed up all Saturday night completely reformatting the entire book from scratch. I added new poetry and even revised some of my existing poetry to include a fresh take on my most popular poems.

I am very proud of this work and it allows my Prosers into the most vulnerable and raw side of my personality; a part of me I generally do not allow anyone into. Please purchase your copy and support this second endeavor of mine.

As for Book 1 of the Davenports, Amazon is predicting it should be ready around June 21st. In the meantime, Nicky W. is looking for a new LOCAL printer since we had a very bad experience with the New York-based one.

Enjoy Mara Prose Monday and thank you for all the love, support and most of all your continued patience with the trials and tribulations of the Davenports! I promise it will be well worth the wait!!

Dwayne Jones – Digital Artist
www.spoylerz.com

Dwayne is a rare combination of discipline, dedication, and self-education in regards to his artistry.  He began his career as a fun past time, practiced in stolen moments of free time from his growing personal training business.   With more and more demands for his digital artwork, Dwayne knew he had another business in the making.  He finds inspiration in his everyday life and spends countless hours perfecting his craft.  His art is unique and he enjoys delaying the gratification of each piece by waiting a few days after a project is completed before releasing it to the public.  The pieces that do make it to the public eye are ones Dwayne wholeheartedly believes in and only ones that prove eye-catching.  This method obviously works since it was one of his designs that initially caught the Art eye of Mara Prose in a Facebook group.

If you have any interest in purchasing his stellar work, please visit his website to submit your request.  Thank you, Dwayne, for being a part of Prosey’s Corner!  We love your talent!

Lane Lovegrove

IMDb: Actor Lane Lovegrove

Actor Lane Lovegrove is a jack of many trades – but his biggest passion in life is being a father.  This is probably why he gravitates more towards the “Dad” roles and has been able to make a successful acting career.  Residing near Charlotte, North Carolina, Lane began to pursue acting in his mid-thirties.  Once he decided to treat it more as a business opportunity, he began to book several commercials, movies, and tv shows.

Lane has been fortunate enough to work with Channing Tatum, with the cast of Homeland and on the hit tv series Banshee.  When he has spare time, he enjoys mentoring other actors and encouraging them to pursue their goals in the industry.  In the very near future, he plans to start his own blog specifically for fathers.

With an indie film and a new episode on Investigation Discovery, called Silencer, Lane continues to pave his own way towards success.  We enjoyed having Lane on Prosey’s Corner and we cannot wait to have him back on the show very soon.

Until next time,

Mara Prose Monday: Reflections at 41

Wow, another year and another Mara Prose birthday has arrived.  May 17th to be exact!!  It is hard to believe that I have been reflecting since my late twenties.   Thankfully, I have truly grown and matured; each year a better version of me is produced.

Why’s and Need’s?
I told someone recently that I feel the need for a much deeper understanding of self.  It is no longer acceptable to continue to do the same things, simply because that is how I have always done them.  I need to understand ‘why’ I do it and then determine if there is a real ‘need‘ to continue with that pattern.  It seems to me if I cannot determine the ‘why’, then there is obviously not a ‘need‘ for it in my life.

No Regrets
There was a point in my life where I had too many regrets.  First, I avoided regretting the decisions I made and then I fully embraced the regrets.  Now, I work hard not to develop the initial regret from the start.  I do not want to continue to look back on my life and know that I was never proactive enough to prevent some of the unfortunate mishaps.  With maturity, I believe comes a time where you no longer feel the impulse to act immediately on every single decision.  Thus, if I take the time to really think it through, determine what is truly in my best interest, and go after only my strongest desires; in theory, I should have a lot more peace and purpose.

Privacy
I make a lot of moves that no one hears about.  At one point, I prided myself on being an open book.  Lately, I want to selfishly cling to my most memorable moments alone and without an audience.  I think it is simply the fact that I am no longer seeking validation.  I finally feel comfortable in my own skin and honestly enjoy people’s misconceptions of my life.  It is amusing watching people try to ‘get’ you and ‘figure‘ you out.  The young Mara felt the need to discredit and prove all these misconceptions wrong.  The older and wiser version of me realizes you cannot control how people perceive you, so why bother?  I answer to no one but God and my conscience – the rest of it is just gravy.

I still have a long way to go, but THANK GOD I am not where I used to be. ~ Joyce Meyer

Until next time,

Mara Prose
