“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” -Mother Teresa 😀 ❤ 

Her face lit up as she, with such care displayed each completed ornament on the frayed edges of the blanket surrounding her. People quickly walked by dropping money in the box, but few noticed her proudly arranged necklaces. Lloyd grabbed my hand, and we were out of the car and taking our turn walking by her. Lloyd stopped, greeted her with a big smile, and said hello, but she didn’t respond. He slowly bent down to look at her work and all the beautiful colored beads, and with a look of surprise on her face, her eyes met his with a smile. Lloyd complimented her work, but she still didn’t utter a word. Her weathered eyes filled with tears as she made a sound that let us know she was unable to speak or hear, then gestured in sign language, “Thank you.” Excerpt from “The Lloyd Haynes Story”

“It’s a lot easier to fight for a cause than to care for an individual.” –Lloyd Haynes (Mr Dixon on Room 222).

Lloyd Haynes and Muhammad Ali both knew something about fighting for causes–and other fighting.LLOYD:MUHAMMAD CROPPED

This photo was taken during the filming for Ali’s auto-bio pic THE GREATEST (Lloyd Haynes played Herbert Muhammad). They are having fun–and how many actors are allowed to get the take on Ali even in fun?

For the record, Lloyd Haynes was too smart to throw punches at Ali even in jest, but he was a Marine pilot. He’d had training.

“No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader. No surprise in the writer, no surprise in the reader.”–Robert Frost 

Robert Lee Frost was an American poet. His work was initially published in England before it was published in America.

“There is no cure, nothing I can do, and I hold little hope that he will ever walk again.” As he started to leave Lloyd’s bedroom, he looked back at Lloyd, and with a matter-of-fact tone commanded, “Rest, stay in bed, and I will be back in a couple of days with metal braces for your legs.” Excerpt from The Lloyd Haynes Story

WHICH ONE?

“Would you like to ride along the coast on the way home? Maybe stop in the town of Carmel?” 

We turned off the main highway leading to a small side street and in an instant, were transported. It was as if I was in England gazing at the picturesque English countryside villages. There before me seemed enthralling unmatched beauty, right here—quaint homes and gardens, winding cobblestone pathways, that invited you to the front door, and ivy-and-rose covered cottages with thoughtful detail to each curbside mailbox. I looked over at Lloyd in dazed amazement, but he seemed at this point, to be enjoying my reaction more than the homes themselves. He pulled over, stopped, and said, “Okay which one would like?” Excerpt from The Lloyd Haynes Story

There is not room for Death, 
Nor atom that his might could render void:
 Thou – Thou art Being and Breath, 
And what Thou art may never be destroyed.

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful?” SOPHIA LOREN-Sofia Villani Scicolone is an Italian film actress and singer.

In all the years, I knew Lloyd, he rarely if ever talked about acting and I cannot remember one time that he discussed or mentioned the interviews written about him or those lovely notes that he saved. It is a beautiful and dear discovery confirming again the amazing soul I saw through his piercing eyes years ago. Except from “The Lloyd Haynes Story.”

ROADTRIP

“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”-E. L. Doctorow
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: “Care I for the limb, the thews, the stature, bulk, and big assemblance of a man! Give me the spirit.” 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 soul—well, it was astounding!

EVERY SECRET


Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind is written large in his works.” -Adeline Virginia Woolf
