HAPPY HALLOWEEN, EVERYONE!


The name “Halloween” comes from the All Saints Day celebration of the early Christian church, a day set aside for the solemn remembrance of the martyrs. All Hallows Eve, the evening before All Saints Day, began the time of remembrance. “All Hallows Eve” was eventually contracted to “Hallow-e’en,” which became “Halloween.”

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, DEAR LLOYD HAYNES 10/19/34 – 12/31/86

One autumn evening, surrounded by a breathtaking view of the city lights, I met an extraordinary soul that, until then, I had only read about from the writings of great poets. A captivating moment in time that stands apart from all the others in my life and, much to my amazement, changed my perception of handsome to those of William Shakespeare: โ€œCare I for the limb, the thews, the stature, bulk, and big assemblance of a man! Give me the spirit.โ€ No one would argue that Samuel Lloyd Haynes was an impressive assemblance of a man, but if you happened to catch a glimpse of his soulโ€”well, it was astounding!

Her 1968 debut in Julia, the first series on American television to star a black woman in a nonstereotypical role, was a milestone both in her career and the medium. In the 1980s she played the role of a mixed-race diva in the primetime soap opera Dynasty.

Carroll was the recipient of numerous stage and screen nominations and awards, including the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress In A Television Series in 1968. She received an Academy Award for Best Actress nomination for the 1974 film Claudine. She was also a breast cancer survivor and activist.

“The last remnants of dry autumn leaves fell all around me from the huge old trees like soft rain. It was magical as they brushed against my face. Leaves covered the entire front yard that day, spilling out into the street. I stood motionless, captured by the site of all the beautiful shades of yellow, orange, red, and green. Everything looked new and clean, and I was mesmerized by the site. I took another step-down, then catapulted off into the middle of a wind drift pile of leaves. It was heaven as I sunk beneath the crunching rainbow.” Lloyd Haynes (age 6)ย Excerpt from The Lloyd Haynes Storyย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’•

“A word can change a mind, a sentence can change a life and a #book can change the world.” ~ Tom Kane

Lloyd eventually came across a book called, All About Men.He credits a statement in the book for a significant insight into his life. โ€œThe fulfilled man is one who follows his childhood dreams.โ€ As a young boy, he dreamed of being an actor but put it out of his mind as just an impossible accomplishment. When asked later he said, โ€œWhen I grew up Negro children didnโ€™t have the desire to go into films or television. We first had to overcome things like going into restaurants.โ€ Excerpt from The Lloyd Haynes Story

During the difficult days, Lloyd found a small three-by-five baby picture of himself taken around age eighteen months. Studying the picture for the longest time, he noticed the happiness in the eyes, the openness to life in his face and wondered where that happy little boy went. Determined to find out, he said, โ€œIโ€™m going to find my smile!โ€

โ€œ#Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ’•

We emerged from the water without a word but were like one spirit as we sat on the platform, suspended over the water and looking at the skyline as we waited for Jim and Sandy to return. I have thought of that moment repeatedly over the years and tried to describe it, but words are not adequate. I read somewhere that there are special moments in time when a person becomes aware that there is more to life than what they can see with their eyes. It is a feeling all around you of sublime serenity, of infinite possibilities, and a clearness of thought that is beyond the everyday. It was on-the-razor-edge of overwhelming.ย Excerpt from The Lloyd Haynes Story –ย http://www.amazon.com/dp/1548760420

“The church was different from mine, but I enjoyed it and was happy she asked me.
