NewTV: Three Lessons Learned

haiti-001Last week I had my first TV studio experience. BJ Krintzman, Newton lawyer, mega-blonde and overall fabulous person, interviewed me on her long running cable television show, “That’s the Law”. I was hard pressed to figure what Architecture by Moonlight had to do with the law, but BJ made a clever connection, which led us into a fascinating discussion of Haiti. BJ made some other fresh observations: describing the book as “A Year in Provence meets Three Cups of Tea.” Watch the interview here.

Three things I learned from my adventure in television:

2. You can’t see a thing beyond the bright lights, except these flashing time signs that pop up with ten minute, five minutes, one minute left that burn into your brain and make you want to talk faster.

3. When you see hosts and guests chatting during the credits, we’re not actually saying anything. BJ just told me to fake blather.

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
