The Prophet Noble Drew Ali taught the Moors to learn to love instead of hate. It is only natural that I would showcase a young and vibrant playwright and Director Donysha Smith as she premieres her new play “ALL ABOUT LOVE”
Inspired by the music of Stevie Wonder, ALL ABOUT LOVE offers a “fresh look at love” in an energetic, interactive, modern multi-media experience that combines live theater, video, music, dance and more into a single narrative piece about love in all of its fabulously unpredictable forms.
ALL ABOUT LOVE consists of three unique storylines seamlessly woven together through a unique and contemporary use of multi-media. Love’s many forms are examined through these compelling scenes that touch real life emotions and are interspersed with vignettes that express unconventional viewpoints on relationships.
Donysha Smith, a Philadelphia born playwright, producer, and actress earned a B.F.A. in Dramatic Writing from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. She has held various roles in Theater, Media and Fashion. Donysha has been featured in projects for Oxygen Media, SuperStar Films, Ethereal Films and Fathom Entertainment. Donysha is a New York theater producer and performer and has played roles across a wide array of theatrical genres. From classics like “A Raisin in the Sun” and “Hamlet” to experimental productions such as “Sister FM Diva” and “The Poets”. ALL ABOUT LOVE marks the Directorial Debut of Donysha Smith.
Passionate about her work, Donysha believes that art does not just imitate life – it has the power to transform it! To that end, a percentage of the proceeds from ticket sales and concessions from ALL ABOUT LOVE will go to the Fistula Foundation. The Fistula Foundation raises awareness of and funding for fistula repair, prevention, and education programs worldwide. The Fistula Foundation helps women in Ethiopia, D.R.

I will use that love vibration to carry on this message that we must GET READY FOR ANYTHING. We spend a lot of time focusing on “correcting our status” and debating who is right and who is wrong in regards to being politically correct as Aboriginal and Indigenous People. Do we ever truly take the time to reflect on recent incidents like “KATRINA” and the most recent horror of Haiti. What we will we do in our status then? Are we prepared for the earth to quake our beloved comfort zones?
I will be talking to Aton Edwards the Executive Director of the International Preparedness Network, outdoor survival expert, martial artist & design scientist. Aton has created a unique operational protocol for a group that he calls Improvisational Adaptation (IA) for short. The system was designed as a comprehensive “life-defense” program that combines the full spectrum of self-reliance, preparedness, outdoor survival, sustainable living, personal health, fitness, and self-defense disciplines.
IA-DO’s form is based on a cellular level of control, where practitioners become self-contained units who use specific preparedness related tools, skills and information to stabilize and maintain their lives and environments during disasters in the same way the internal organs of the human body work together to maintain homeostasis. He even created a formula, and symbol to express it.
“Preventative measures that are taken for each crisis are directly proportional to their frequency P= and inversely proportional to their average magnitude.”
P = Preventative measures, F = frequency, M = average magnitude. Analytically stated, P = F/M.
IA-DO SYMBOL & FORMULA
The specific mission of the unit was to train civilians in the tri-state area to avoid, mitigate against, respond to and recover from natural, environmental, technological and civil disasters. Over the course of the past two decades, the mission has significantly expanded.
The I.P.N. now also:
Monitors and reports critical environmental, public health and safety related issues to its members and, the general public.
Designs its own specialized emergency preparedness/disaster response related equipment. A recently added new component features a portable homeless emergency shelter design & construction program.
Gathers and distributes critical information to its members regarding potential (and in progress) disasters, & emergencies, developing geopolitical crises and, terrorism.
Stages free public self-reliance, preparedness & sustainable living forums called Global Meltdown Survival Clinics.
My Co Navigator on this call will be the one and only King Simon as he is rightful authority in this field.
