Ep. 19 - The Pants Fee Ft. Danny Allain - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

December 26, 2018

What is good news? I’ve asked that question a lot since I started this show. What I’ve discovered is that good news wears an infinite number of masks, and on this episode of Find the Good News I learn that one of its secret identities is Danny Allain. There was something different about this strange visitor from another city, with artistic abilities far beyond those of mortal men. What was so different about this conversation with Danny? What was his good news? Listen for just a bit and I think you’ll soon learn what I did, and it’s that Danny is a fast friend. I have some shared history with him, so we skip much of warm-up found with previous good newsies. We dive right into the common ground we share. Danny is a wildly artistic talent, and we definitely work through the sketches, inks, and colors of his life, but it’s the places in between that really made our conversation a lot of fun. He even wore pants to the show, and he didn’t charge me his mandatory pants fee. I felt pretty special. So, what’s the good news in this episode? The news is that people like Danny Allain are in the world, and you can meet them, even buy their art, or just hang out with them, learn something from them, or not. You’ll laugh. You’ll smile. You might even wonder what the heck is wrong with us, and that’s okay, because I think you’ll feel a little brighter after laughing and smiling with us.

Ep. 18 - The Inside Out Ft. Lyd Walls - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

Ep. 18 - The Inside Out Ft. Lyd Walls - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

December 19, 2018

There is something soothing about loose strokes and abstract, flowing colors on canvas, and that comfort is what I found myself settling into when I looked at the nude paintings of Lyd Walls. This art was being born from somewhere. I was curious, so I invited Lyd to visit with me on Find the Good News. One of my greatest pleasures in life is getting to know the back story of a person, the beyond-beyond of a thing, lifting the rock and getting to visit the places where the roly polys play. That’s the territory that Lyd and I traveled together. Lyd has allowed her personal trials to shape her and change her for the better. She's doing the hard work, the good inner work, the work we should all do. She’s asked herself the important questions. “Who am I? Why am I doing what I’m doing? What will I do with this life?” She’s looked inside, taken the lid off, knocked down the walls, and let a new being emerge. Everything she’s learned from this inner work manifests through her hands and gives life to her artistic works. These lovely figures breathe. They are as honest, wonderful, exposed, and colorful as Lyd herself. The good she’s done for herself is a good she shares with us.

Ep. 17 - The Butisattva Ft. Elizabeth McDaniel - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

Ep. 17 - The Butisattva Ft. Elizabeth McDaniel - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

December 12, 2018

Buti Yoga. This was something I’d never heard of, nor seen before, but when I did, four words came to mind; refreshing, energy, joy, and freedom. This was something I really felt Find the Good News listeners would enjoy. After visiting with Elizabeth McDaniel—the founder and teacher at Buti Yoga in Lake Charles, Louisiana—I can easily use the same four words to describe her. Like most people, there was so much more to discover about Elizabeth than what I knew before she came to the Good News studio, and Buti Yoga was just the start. She shares the experiences that shaped her life and the pivots she made when shifts occurred. Beyond Buti Yoga, Elizabeth reveals the new ways she’s working to help people find balance and bring harmony to all facets of their lives through her ontology training. The energy and joy she brought to the table were very refreshing, and I believe that her efforts are helping people break new ground and find new freedoms in their lives. If that’s what you’re looking for—refreshment, energy, joy, and freedom—then meeting Elizabeth is a good place to start.

Ep. 16 - The Awakening Ft. Heather Boston - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

Ep. 16 - The Awakening Ft. Heather Boston - Find the Good News with Oran Parker

December 5, 2018

I can’t really pinpoint where I was first exposed to Heather Boston’s artwork, but what I do remember is stopping each time to look at her creative works. The art itself gave me much to think about, but it was Heather’s reflections and revelations shared through her art that really gave me pause, so I reached out to see if she’d come and visit me on Find the Good News. Just like her artwork, there are layers and layers that unfold in Heather. Within minutes we were diving off a cliff into the divine territory, discussing angels, visions, gifts, dimensions, time, healing, and love. I want to be simple and clear; Heather is fearlessly operating over the border in a spiritual territory that I believe many hearts are called to, but few fully answer. If I’m being honest, I have one foot in and one foot out, and I admire human beings like Heather that go to the edge, leap off, then fly. There is something very special happening with Heather, something unique being shared through her works of art, which are really works of heart. There are questions, answers, messages, and timeless truths crying out to be heard from the paint. I invite you to settle in and listen to this visit with Heather with an open mind and heart. She reminds me that what we think is going on in the day-to-day hustle isn’t all that there is, and that there are unseen loving forces dancing about this world, and they often revealed in the awakened human heart. Any day you get to soak in the falloff light from a heart like this, a heart like Heather’s is a good day indeed.
