Dearest I was so inspired by something I heard you say in an interview with Oprah yesterday. Something about how your stories flow from you. I am writing a book/screenplay called Down South With Miss Ann. Sometimes I am disicplined and other times I simply do not visit the page. I am overwhelmed and often the project seems to be a huge task. But when I surrender, when I stop the analysis, when I simply sit down and write it flows out of me. The words come so fast, my fingers are flying across the keys and I call my book : A memory. Months, even years have gone by and when I return to the page the scene unfolds exactly the same way. A car pulls up in a driveway and I see the house. I see everything the same each time. This kind of blows my mind. The story takes place in New Orleans and I have never been to New Orleans. I have always felt that if I went there this story would completely show itself to me. Recently I thought perhaps I should finish it. I should document what happens to all the characters then I might be able to fill in the inbetween. Since I have never written a book such as this I write on the character. My goal is to create a scenario perhaps like a music video...Anyway I was inspired by your interview with Oprah yesterday though I had viewed it before...When you spoke of all the ideas running around in your mind... yes it takes discipline right now I am in a slump I am working on two books and there they sit just waiting....
Just so you know... YOU have inspired me with this beautiful post you've written to Mr. Perry. Thank you. I am also writing a book; and find that when I stop thinking so much, it just FLOWS... ;-) I can't wait until you complete your story. I can see it on the big screens now!
I give no one my phone but I arrived at your website by the grace of God. Last night I prayed and asked the Lord to open my door as I have been idle during my retirement years. I was an RN but no longer work because I broke the law. I am not a criminal but a child of God and know that his plan for me is to give as you do. I have yet to arrive to the place where I can do as much as you do but I have arrived at your sight and I am greatful. You have been chosen and I am happy to meet you. Mr Perry you were born on the same month and year as my son. Your message has reached me and I am honored to have made your acquaittance. ThankYou...MR SAUL CORTES. May the Lord continue his blessings upon you......
Hi. Truth be told, I have no clue why my spirit has brought me to your website. I have no desire yto have anything about movies, I can not request a job from you, I live & like Florida, I believe God exists, but do not believe 100% that we should worship Jesus, you are black, I am white, I find many needy people here and really I just dont know about my goals at age 50. I really gave up on goals at my age. Anyway. If God clues you in on why I come here, please fill me in. Stay in peace & love. Best Regards.
Kristi, you may be 50, but if God has something for you to do then He will give you what it takes to make it happen. I'm Black, 63 and full of the reality that dreams don't have deadlines. We are blessed to be children of God and He can accomplish much if we surrender to Him. Be blessed.
"I find many needy people here". Being Needy and Being Inspired are two different things. & I don't understand what does black and white have to do with anything. But have a good day.
Every time that i visit your sight, i watch your movies and watch the inspirational clips, it just gives me this drive, this push this energy that i can be somebody, i can be what i want to be, i can change the story of my life and yes i can be on the other end, the end that gives and change other people's lives...God Bless you Tyler.
You Inspire me, you are a blessing man...
Thank you for being the best you...everyday in everyway... Thank you for allowing the light to shine in the midst of darkness and pain... I feel your pain and your pressure to be all that GOD buried in you.... I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU HAVE SHOWN THAT ALL IS POSSIBLE.... JUST MAKE SURE WHILE YOU ARE LOVING US MR. PERRY ************LOVE YOU***** THANK YOU FOR THE GIFTS.....OF SELFLESSNESS!!!!!
Wow!!! Man of God you have really touched my life... May God's wisdom fill your life and those sarrounding you!!!! Today, you confirmed God's purpose in my life!!! God bless, till we meet....
My Dear Brother, Millions of us have experienced the "power of the Holy Ghost" through your works & your words!!! I believe that the anointing isn't for the faint at heart ... Amen? Being able to press through pain with a positive purpose, isn't something that we alone (without the Help from our Creator) are capable of doing. So, when "ABBA" sends His messengers (like you Mr. Perry & your body of work), we ought all ... go to Jesus and bless God for sending us a comfortable at times, thought provoking, safe place to land - that encourages us to heal/to release/to let it go! Keep on SHINING my friend!!! And may God bless you ... my Brilliant Brother!!!
Dear Mr. Perry, When my friend first told me about your films and plays I was somewhat skeptical, but I have watched almost everything you have done and I am so amazed at the amount of insight and empathy you show for and about women. You are a phenomenon...for any time, but, especially for these times. While I don't always agree with the level of language and sexuality used in your films, I must say that they are so real and touch people where they have needs. My husband went to be with our precious Jesus last year and I want to say he thought your films were so heartfelt...and yet funny and full of God 's love. Please don't ever stop "doing Madea stuff"! Maria and I love you and pray for you. We may just be 50 and 70 year old white women living in the rain forest (Oprah's been here-ask her :) ) but these two widow women love you and your work and all the talented people in your crew. May God help you with your grief over your dear Mother and may He bless all you do. In His love and ours , Maria and Pam
Dear Mr Perry, I have just watched your video blog about how to be successful. And I only have one thing to say you, please don't let all these good things that surround you change the human of you. Because I think it is the foundation of all the aftermath of your doing. So if it remains unchanged your work would have consistency in the future. God bless you even more so that through you God can inspire many more. Stay blessed
The first play that I ever saw, was "Madea's Big Happy Family." The reflection of the dysfunctions in the black family made me cry so. The pain, the love, the sin and secrets that a black Mother carries in her bosom, and sometimes to her grave, brought so much forgiveness to my reality. The story line had so many familiarities to my own family that I could not help, but to call on The Lord Jesus, and ask Him to help me to forgive my mother, my sisters, and brothers, for the rejection, the malice, the anger, and their lack of ability to love 'me; their youngest sister of eight children. I was conceived from rape of Our father, but rejected by our mother because of it; her flight and plight became my albatross in life. Even though my only guilt and role, was that I lived, the wounds and grudges are yet so deep, that four generations of grands to this day, still hate! " Yet I say Thank You Tyler for sleeping in a car in Winston-Salem on your journey to the top. If I've gotten this part of your story wrong, please forgive me." However, your homelessness, or hiding under your relatives house, brought back haunting memories of my great escapes from similar fears. "I've faced them, and the owners of them. "Now I'm ready to write and to live. GOD BLESS YOU! Again thank you. Patricia April 23, 2013 2:13 am
God has blessed! and May God continue to bless!
