We're back after a two week hiatus. In this podcast we chat with my dearly departed brother, for whom we had a memorial service this past week. Jennifer was there, as well as some fans of the podcast.
In today's podcast, Jennifer announces that Olivia Newton John wants to chat with us. For those who've never tuned in before (or their last time ever tuning in) we have a group of individuals on the flipside who have spoken to us before. They are mentioned briefly in the podcast, including our moderator Luana Anders and her best friend Sally Kellerman.
Sally's husband was Jonathan Krane, John Travolta's manager, my pal and producer of three of my films (including the short film, he's reminding me.) I met Olivia at their home one night of Mulholland, and as noted, Randal Kleiser, the director of Grease and I went to visit Sally in the retirement home where she spent her final years - oblivious because of Alzheimer's, but completely in the moment whenever we brought her chocolate.
She's another example of someone who while not aware in person, is completely aware on the flipside of everything we do for them here. Jennifer and I have spoken to the "higher selves" of a number of folks who had it prior to passing.
Olivia talks about what it was like crossing over, who greeted her, what the experience was like - and if it was what she expected. I'm sorry I didn't ask for a message for her daughter Chloe - but suffice to say it's better for her to have a private conversation in her own fashion, meditation or perhaps giving someone like Jennifer a call.
We have passed along messages in the past - and sometimes I've had to edit them out of the podcast due to their being private conversations. In this case, I'm sorry I didn't ask her specifically for a message for her daughter - as they were close.
But if she shows up again, I will.
Also Robin Williams stopped by - it's the 8th anniversary of his crossing, and he reminds us to celebrate life in his own unusual way.
