Email from a Friend – “What you don’t know is that tonight, as I drove home from work (before Starbucks), I cried.  I cried because I know I’m supposed to be doing something different here on Earth – just haven’t been sure what.

I also cried because I know it’s close – and maybe it was more a crying of relief….. like “thank goodness!”  I even told a friend tonight – “it’s getting close… I’m not quite sure what it is – but it’s right here!”

Tonight after talking to you, I have hope.  Just the seed of an idea is hope that I’m getting closer.  So….You were a great messenger of love and strength for me tonight, and I am forever grateful!”


Thank you friend – may we always be great messengers of love and strength for others, who fly on the wings of shared gratitude with Love in our hearts for those in need of our gifts, talents, smiles. This is the true spirit of Los Angeles. Much love. & You’re welcome. xox.

1 bilion people in the world don’t have access to clean drinking water. Yet we are made up of 63% H2O as people. I think true celebrity is about whose moving water flows in the world. It’s as simple as something like that.

Nicole Richie is one of the brightest stars that does all year round. She’s our girl. Click on pic to learn more about what we can do through initiatives like Global Water.

To make clean water flow in dry places where it needs to be the most, let’s do it. Thanks. Love you all.

A Miranda Kerr Post as Sun Capp Art – These ladies are ambassadors that matter. They are seen each year by a billion plus people on the planet. They are visible. As international ambassadors they are given the title of “angel.” An angel is a “messenger.” With all their wings aflutter–(feather creations as fashion accessories) they are a reminder of–what’s your message for the world? And to strut it out.

True fact: All the models that walk the runway of the Victoria’s Secret fashion show each year are called “Runway Angels.” The elite representatives for America’s most favorite fashion show each year and spokespeople of the brand are called “Victoria’s Secret Angels.” They’re in another league of hotness. They’re like Charlies Angels –the TV Show once made here in California–as global representatives.

Their selection reads like a line up of G20 Summit leaders or a UN Summit meetings best representatives. They stem from many nations. In the current line up is:

Miranda Kerr of Australia, PINK spokesmodel 2006-8 and now ongoing. Featured here for Heavenly Kiss launch.

Doutzen Kroes of The Netherlands via Vsalla Acess Victoras Secret.

Behati Prinsloo of Namibia–since 2008.

Rosie Huntington Whitely UK, selected 2010

Candice Swanepoel of South Africa, selected 2010

2010′s American trio – Erin Heatherton,

Chanel Iman,

Lily “is it time to snort & vomit yet?”Aldrige

In 2007 Victoria’s Secret Angels as a star brand, were awarded their own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. They are an elite group of girls–doing good things with their beauty and profiles. They join previous Victoria Secret Angels: Heidi Klum of Germany and America, Selita Ebanks of USA, Tyra Banks USA, The Brazilian trio: Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima, Alessandra Ambrosio. Karolina Kurkova and Marissa Miller and Lindsey Ellingson USA to name a view more.

Fun girls–all strutting their stuff for a good cause. These Angels all work for a company called The Limited.

Why are they so lethal and effective as global ambassadors? Their distribution model. More catalogues from The Limited than people who are in the US are created. More than 400 million Victoria’s Secret catalogues are mailed each year from head office, America.

The Limited is increasingly becoming a green thinking company: Under pressure from environmentalist groups, Victoria’s Secret’s parent firm and a conservation group have reached an agreement to make the lingerie retailer’s catalog more environmentally friendly in 2006. The catalog will no longer be made of pulp supplied from any woodland craibou habitat range in Canada, unless it has been certified by the Forest Protection Association.

Sun Capitol Ambassadors: The Limited sold 75% of its company shares to Sun Capitol Partners, Inc–a company that manages $8 billion in equity capitol with 245 companies and businesses worldwide that generate INXS of $40 billion each year. Sun Capitol Ambassadors have offices Boca Raton, Los Angeles, New York, and affiliate offices in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Luxembourg, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

These Angels are Sun Capitol’s ambassadors of choice. Miranda Kerr is almost about to pop with baby no.1. Go kid!

I am so excited. Brand new footage of the one and only Annie Crummer is available to share. Today though, Annie is Harwood-Hollywood-Hot in the City of Angels entertainment and celebrity news round up.

Meanwhile here in America, Victoria’s Secret is proud of all things South Pacific in their new line up of hot models and lingerie attire for the American woman.

Model Lindsay Ellingson walks on stage during the 2010 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show at the Lexington Armory in New York on Nov. 10, 2010.
I love this image. Interweaving narratives of cross-cultural fusion is always hot. It’s the point where you learn the most and it’s the artform of this Hollywood blog too and what all Maori, Polynesian Pacific Artists do in the world. The Maori version of weaving is called tukutuku. It’s the same artistic spirit of what good editors do in sound and with film. They weave images and footage of Hollywood stories together, that matter.
Pretty music aye from Annie and Debbie and buds? They’re so naturally talented in having a blast together. Love these girls!!! Lindsay’s not bad either. :)
Here’s Annie Crummer, a singer whose part Maori and of Rarotongan Kiwi fusion descent, bringing Lindsay Ellingson’s Pasifika themed Angels wings to life, with the sounds of the South Pacific, featured in this video. Crummer sings with Debbie Harwood her friend from their group, When the Cat’s Away. This version is a small concert venue Kiwi gathering for the peoples in Auckland – The Supercity.
Are you are part of Pasifika peoples being in your world too? I am. They’re fun.

~To learn love, life, liberty, wisdom, purpose to serve and lead with happiness; always stay close to your els. Action–Horiwood, July 2010~

When you first get to Hollywood, tour operators suggest you purchase a star map on Hollywood Blvd, that offers directions to celebrities homes and addresses. People buy these by the hundreds. 

Beyond tourism, when you seek to commit to community and put down roots, there is a saying that to make it in Hollywood, you don’t need a map. You just need to know your way around your star tattoos. 

But the truth is, California’s most fulfilling life, is when you choose to stay close to els.

Here’s how you voted our top ten celebrity news posts today. Thank you:

1. Horiwood’s Trifecta: Olivia, Lynne, Brooke for

2. Oksana & Mel 

3. From heroin to heroine: Angelina Jolie‘s star story

4. What a guy! Richard Chandler is a billionaire philanthropist

Hot. Acts of loving kindess is the art of Aunt Elvira.

Spiritual X- Ray of a great: Yaweh Rafah in Aunt Elvira is: the kindness of El brings anointed healing and comfort for the afflicted. Her thoughts, wit, words, smile, humor and theatrical delivery is hot healing oil for the wounded in spirit. With laser-like precision, she cuts, corrects, encourages, realigns, stitches, binds and heals lives.

This is the spirit and art of Aunt Elvira as percieved, with the prayer of faith.

Big love. So strong, smart,.

 Graceful, humble..

 A prayer request for the locum.

“Yahweh-Rapha, the Lord who heals you.” Rapha means “to mend, to cure, to repair, to make whole.”–Exodus 15

“One day these hands will touch the world”Rachel Scott of Columbine–her teen words at the altar of precious American Life, written in her bedroom and traced in faith–like twin palms of a precious lamb posted on… [blog] wood for a beloved Daughter, Sister, Aunty, Cousin, Friend and Mother of LA. 

The Theological thinking: “Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.”–James 5: 14

[Mood: Elisha's Prayer of Faith + Gabriel Ataya. Prayer of healing for Aunt E]

~A good read: Miracle at Marah – Exod. 15).Music: Kevin Prosch as spirit food for a “Hinn” of healing oil that comes without price in America in the 2010′s for all who are sick and have need of a Physician. Posted by Horiwood.Com, Hollywood California USA. 6.15.2010. Tallis of Elisha, courtesy of This Blog~

Result: After the prayer of faith with anointing oil was made with Uncle Emile, Aunt Elvira prayed, smiled and said in prayer: “Father God (Abba Father) I See You.”

This came in yesterday from my sister, Rachel. It is the celebratory death notice of indgenous Maori filmmaking Queen, Merata Mita that her six children, loving and painfully placed in the New Zealand newspaper for her–so that The World, would know that their mother’s spirit would always soar.

With the soaring metaphor of an Eagle used by her family to define their mum,

As Dolphins in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand are an icon of “forgiveness, healing, prosperity and good fortune, ” I thought this image was a powerful one of strength to beam out today in Hollywood (Star Trek Kiwi styles), in the wake of Jesse James and Sandra Bullock‘s marital woes. Because all couples find at best, they’re only human and inspiration is needed to continue on a journey of love.

So for any couple who have ever known the art of forgiveness,  (or who may be choosing to know this art of love in a deeper and more real way) to heal the worst of hurts that can threaten a couples partnership, marriage and relationship; here’s a good message:

To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.  ~Lewis B. Smedes

Let’s hope Sandy B and Jesse James’ spirits wax strong in love, like these two beautfiul creatures pictured above.

By the way, the best place to go for honeymooners and couples needing some R n R together is the Bay of Islands in New Zealand, where the dolphin is King and Queen of this beautiful tourist resort township made up of 144 beautiful Islands in a warm seaside playground. Check it out, if you feel you could benefit from a jet-a-way vacation with the one you love.

Every Oscar winning actor, should be given a two week vacation for two, [alongwith that golden beaten tinsel trophy shaped in a man's image], to the amazing Bay of Islands, to watch dolphins play well together to ensure some married Oscar winning stars, can uphold family and romantic values at some point. That would be both fun and wise, the best kind of fun and glory of all. :)

The true path forward of any A-List star in the world is to Star Trek a path forward of forgiveness–Horiwood

The success of Twilight‘s New Moon at the box office for Summit Entertainment has led all major Hollywood Studios to look at film franchising book series as the way forward to smart movie making, marketing and distribution. It appears that movie goers want to be emotionally invested in series of ideas and texts of entertainment.

Disney have brought the rights to young author, Aprilynne Pike‘s Wings book hoping to secure the next ‘Twilight Saga’ deal of success in movie cinemas worldwide. Here’s three things about Wings.

1. Aprilynne Pike‘s #1 New York Times best-selling debut, WINGS, is the first of four books about a seemingly ordinary girl with a not-so-ordinary destiny. In this tale of magic and intrigue, romance and danger, everything you thought you knew about faeries will be changed forever.

2. In its first week of sales, Wings hit #6 on the New York Times Best Sellers List for Children’s Chapter Books. Read the rest of this entry »
