'Kairos' is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or opportune moment. Something Wonder Woman has in spades. This sense of timing is what is most interesting to me. Knowing when to observe, when to act, when to conceal, and when to reveal. Wonder Woman could be an everyday person, invisible almost, and then she literally turns around and saves her most favorite mortals and innocent strangers. All of the Justice League members had dual personalities, and as a child I wished I could hang out with them and escape my own mortal prison.
I know I had underoos, but cant find the photos to prove my early Superhero coolness. This obsession never faded, in fact got a little stronger as I got older.
In 2009, when things were a little bleak, I heard a voice in my head calling for Wonder Woman...and within 24 hours I found a producer and director on Craigslist. Eric Velarde and Liquid Metal Media made up the team, my dance friends and students made up the Superheros, and Kelli Anne Hornachek became my production manager. My original song had been written already. I had dreams of getting it placed in a Wonder Woman movie Hollywood had been hinting at. The movie never happened... but my video did.
Thanks to all the people who worked on the project, I became Wonder Woman, and I was able to put out an inspiring original music and song. My childhood dream was completed, and sent out into the stratosphere. Everyone who contributed to my project is a superhero for me. Including the NYPD officers who stopped to "check" on things and let us play superhero in various parts of Gotham, even if Kelli Anne had to accept a date with a cop for the show to go on.
