YOU THE BIZ!<br />

I AM...<br />

We are connected; that’s<br />

why you’re here. Take your<br />

time, turn the pages and<br />

discover what we could do<br />

together and how we can do it.<br />

Creativity is my passion.<br />

I help people and businesses<br />

to discover, value and use their<br />

creativity to perform better.<br />

I guide you on the journey<br />

to reveal your core energies,<br />

uniqueness, I believe that you love yourself<br />

more, become more daring, and move beyond<br />

boundaries blocked by fear.<br />

When we work together, you walk away with<br />

a product, something that you can take to the<br />

bank. That includes the bank of self-worth and<br />

self-esteem, protecting your most valuable<br />

assets.<br />

I know that we could have some fun because,<br />

along with my various and different skills, fun<br />

is one of the things I bring to the table. Don’t<br />

Q A<br />

&<br />

silver wainhouse<br />

@silverwainhouse<br />

6. What’s your biggest challenge<br />

right now?<br />

WHAT<br />


1. When you awake in the morning<br />

do you get out of bed immediately<br />

or do you linger?<br />

2. What is your biggest fear?<br />

That the number of deaths from Covid 19 will<br />

increase because leadership in the United<br />

States has no plan. My family has lost people.<br />

I’ve children on the front lines.<br />

3. What three promises have you<br />

made to yourself?<br />

4. Is there a rule you’ve broken?<br />

I break rules all the time when it comes to<br />

style. I will at my age, wear a dress with a slit<br />

and red lipstick. And I rock it!<br />

5. Breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Which<br />

is your favorite?<br />

I’ve several and they are all related to touch<br />

and people together in a room.<br />

I am a hugger. I miss touch so much. And<br />

feeling the synergy created by people together<br />

in a room.<br />

Also, I try to remain optimistic about seeing<br />

my play, “Amazing Grace is Yellow,” on stage.<br />

And when that may happen.<br />

I linger. I often awaken around 6 a.m. but may<br />

remain in bed for an hour, even more. I tell<br />

my friends that I am with G.U.S. That is my<br />

acronym for Getting Up Slowly. I may journal,<br />

noting my dream and what else is coming up.<br />

I give gratitude for the day and when my feet<br />

meet the floor I have a direction for the day.<br />

I have an indoor morning exercise routine<br />

taught to me by a martial arts instructor,<br />

which takes about 20 minutes. Then I walk for<br />

an hour or so.<br />

That I will honor my body, embracing its<br />

imperfections. There is too much pressure to<br />

look a certain way. I have seen hundreds of<br />

bodies in my office ranging from professional<br />

athletes to people seeking relief from trauma.<br />

Each is a miracle; each is beautiful.<br />

That I can and will say no when it is<br />

appropriate for me to do so. I have a good gut<br />

sense. I’ve learned to listen to it. I know my<br />

worth and to ask for what I am worth.<br />

I don’t eat a traditional breakfast. My first<br />

meal of the day is around 11:30 or so. More like<br />

brunch. It is often oatmeal and fruit.<br />

I eat again around 3:30 or 4. It is a full meal.<br />

Dinner courses.<br />

Sweet potatoes are often included. I love<br />

them. I slice them like fries, drizzle them<br />

lightly with olive oil and bake high. Simple and<br />

good. I have been asked to bring them to<br />

pot lucks.<br />

7. What’s your favorite quote?<br />

“Live life as it everything is rigged in<br />

your favor.” - Rumi<br />

“Stumbling is not falling.” - (attributed<br />

to many)<br />

“If you judge a fish by its ability to climb<br />

a tree, it will think it’s stupid.”<br />

- Albert Einstein<br />

6 7

8. Your three favorite books?<br />

These will be my favorite today. This may be<br />

your hardest question. I love books and have a<br />

library spanning all four walls to the ceiling in<br />

my home.<br />

Blacks by Gwendolyn Brooks Gwendolyn<br />

Brooks was a poet who was awarded the<br />

Pulitzer Prize. We exchanged letters.<br />

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacquiline<br />

Woodson<br />

Lettres à Son Frere Theo by Vincent Van<br />

<strong>Go</strong>gh - Van <strong>Go</strong>gh’s letter to his brother,<br />

Theo. This book is in French. Van <strong>Go</strong>gh is<br />

one of my favorite painters.<br />

This list could change tomorrow. And WILL!<br />

9. What’s been your lowest point<br />

and how did you pull through?<br />

I have had several life-changing experiences.<br />

I had a brother who was murdered during a<br />

Thanksgiving vacation from university.<br />

I had to institutionalize my late husband,<br />

Austryn, when it became impossible for me<br />

to care for him alone; He had Alzheimer’s and<br />

was a genius. It was devastating to see the<br />

disease ravage his body. I’ve lost a child.<br />

To continue and pick myself up, I had to<br />

remind myself that I was alive and that I was<br />

alive for a reason. That reason speaks to<br />

my passion.<br />

My passion is to encourage and support folks<br />

on their life journey. I infuse them with what I<br />

call Successatude. I guide them on a journey<br />

of self-discovery and appreciation. I want<br />

them to end with a product created from their<br />

talents and skills that they can share with<br />

the world.<br />

10. When people hear your name.<br />

what do you want to come to their<br />

mind?<br />

I want them to see me as someone who gives<br />

them hope and encouragement. I want them<br />

to think that we could sit down together,<br />

co-create and that they will go away<br />

strengthened, and with something upon which<br />

they can rely.<br />

Creativity<br />

is a path to healing and healing is a path<br />

to love.<br />

There are four components to healing I’ve<br />

identified and address in my coaching and<br />

mentoring: Each is a vital component and has<br />

its own reward. I believe that you need them<br />

all to experience love.<br />

Would you consider joining me on<br />

a journey of self-discovery, selfappreciation<br />

and of self-love that you<br />

share creatively with the world?<br />

WE’RE<br />

GOING TO<br />

GROW, AND<br />

HAVE FUN<br />


GOOD USE<br />

OUR BEST<br />

SELVES.<br />

Love and appreciation for oneself<br />

and for others is my mission. This is<br />

the foundation of all that I do in my<br />

mentoring and coaching.<br />

We all have experienced creative<br />

flow. Remember the feeling? Totally<br />

engrossed in a task, we glance after<br />

what seems to have been a few minutes<br />

and are shocked by the much greater<br />

amount of time that has actually<br />

passed. We, in that instant, realize that<br />

we have travelled somewhere else.<br />

Another realm welcomed us and we<br />

arrived with confidence and total loss<br />

of self-consciousness. Released are<br />

expectations; we find ourselves in two<br />

positions simultaneously.<br />

We are as much witness as a participant.<br />

The act of creating, of making something<br />

and losing oneself in the process, is<br />

affirming and life-sustaining.<br />

You<br />

meet love<br />

to the<br />

extent<br />

and at the<br />

places you<br />

are healed.<br />

<strong>Silver</strong> <strong>Wainhouse</strong><br />


<strong>Silver</strong> with Sammy Shoebox Moses Taggert feeling the love<br />

During that time, our unrivalled true self<br />

emerges and the gifts and talents with<br />

which we are born, are untethered.<br />

They are TRUTH,<br />


12 13

Truth Beauty Joy Sharing<br />

The great enemy of<br />

the truth is very<br />

often not the lie,<br />

deliberate contrived<br />

and dishonest, but<br />

the myth, persistent,<br />

persuasive and<br />

unrealistic.<br />

John F. Kennedy<br />

How many non-truths about ourselves are burdening<br />

our shoulders? How many about others? Getting<br />

to the truth is about peeling away the layers and<br />

examining the origins of your beliefs.<br />

The truth is that you are not unlimited and that if<br />

you make up your mind, you can do anything is a<br />

falsehood. What is true is that you can do anything<br />

that is yours to do. By that, I mean that you can do<br />

anything within the confines of your abilities and<br />

talents and will. I do not care how much you believe,<br />

the odds are a gazillion to one that you could not<br />

beat LeBron James in a game of basketball nor beat<br />

Serena Williams in a game of tennis. But, I can easily<br />

imagine that there is something you do that they<br />

can’t. Work on developing that part of you.<br />

What lies are a part of you that do not serve your<br />

best self? What beliefs did your family pass on to<br />

you that are not true. These may include lies about<br />

money, about beauty, about other religions and<br />

other cultures and even about you. What have you<br />

shut your eyes to so as not to upset family members<br />

or yourself because it is easier to do that than to<br />

question and do the work digging for the truth<br />

demands?<br />

I lead you to meet yourself with tenderness.<br />

There is so much beauty in this world. I define<br />

beauty as a quality possessed by a person or<br />

thing that glorifies the senses. The ability to see<br />

and appreciate beauty is a skill. And beauty, once<br />

recognized, pulls something deep inside that makes<br />

you want to protect it. Ability to create beauty<br />

artistically is a gift from the divine.<br />

When is the last time you took time to admire beauty<br />

in nature? And did you connect to the fact that you<br />

are a part of nature and therefore its beauty as well?<br />

Look at mother earth and all who inhabit her as one<br />

organism. What do you think is your function in this<br />

system? What can you do to help the system survive?<br />

Where’s the kiss of beauty nature bestowed in you?<br />

I don’t<br />

think of<br />

all the<br />

misery,<br />

but of the<br />

beauty<br />

that still<br />

remains.<br />

Anne Frank<br />

Beauty’s<br />

currency<br />

is joy.<br />

inside.<br />

<strong>Silver</strong> <strong>Wainhouse</strong><br />

There is a thrill felt in the presence of beauty.<br />

A baby’s laugh, tender words from a lover, a<br />

breathtaking sky, all stir us emotionally. I want<br />

to take you back to the time when you created<br />

something and feeling joy, ran to tell -- to show your<br />

creation. Look at what I did! you said. I support you<br />

and encourage you so you create, without fear of<br />

judgement and to take pleasure in the process itself.<br />

Joy has been nixed in daily life. Too often we delay<br />

joy and pleasure for the weekend and are made to<br />

feel guilty about enjoying ourselves. This has been<br />

done on many levels.<br />

Laugh in your office and what looks do you get?<br />

Smile too much there because you know that the job<br />

does not display all that you are and that you have<br />

other means of self-expression and gratification.<br />

You might receive eye rolls. Nose to the grindstone,<br />

thank you very much is the culture.<br />

But, things are changing. When we give that much<br />

of our time, we not only want a say so, we want a be<br />

so workplace. I work with transitioning individuals<br />

who seek new ways and career paths using their<br />

experience and skills.<br />

We can and should experience joy in all areas and<br />

aspects of our lives.<br />

Where do you find it in yours?<br />

To get the<br />

full value<br />

of joy, you<br />

must have<br />

someone<br />

to divide it<br />

with.<br />

Mark Twain<br />

It is not about you. What? Right. It is not<br />

about you; it is about others and about how<br />

you connect and share with them. I am not<br />

talking about codependency when I talk<br />

about sharing with others what you have<br />

that they need. I am talking about healthy<br />

relationships and exchanges and maintaining<br />

healthy boundaries. There are things you are<br />

to share only after trust has been earned.<br />

It’s about you sharing what you have that<br />

others need via your gifts and talents.<br />

Burnout and disappointment result from<br />

misdirected energy. When you focus on you,<br />

your “tank” is emptied. When the focus is<br />

on what you have to share and match that to<br />

others in need, your “tank” is filled.<br />

Evelyn Asher, Founder<br />

<strong>Silver</strong> is a connector and is founder of the Creativity Showroom based in<br />

Uzès, France. There, in addition to a stream of clients and visitors, she<br />

welcomes members of GLOBAL ARTS FORCE, artists dedicated to human<br />

rights and justice and B.O.S.S.E.S Blacks on Stage and Screen.<br />

Happiness Hooked - <strong>Silver</strong>’s book to be released in 2021. Look for it!<br />

Arriving from all continents, <strong>Silver</strong> welcomes them to her “Creativity<br />

Showroom” in southern France, where as creativity developer, she meets<br />

you where you are. Whether coming to regain footing after a life-changing<br />

experience, to start or advance a project, or to explore how to find and use<br />

the best version of yourself, you will leave fortified after your experience.<br />

<strong>Silver</strong> feels that creativity and the use of one’s talent, is the number one<br />

component insuring success in personal and corporate life. With <strong>Silver</strong>, you<br />

emerge with a new awareness of how your skills and talents can be best<br />

put to use. If you think that you have neither skill nor talent, <strong>Silver</strong> takes<br />

you on a journey of self-appreciation. You gain internalized confidence<br />

finding the part of yourself meant to lead. The problem solver in you will<br />

be fortified. When you leave the “Creativity Showroom,” you step out with<br />

the self you are born to express and share with the world.<br />

Having deconstructed your fear and doubt, and worry, you emerge with<br />

enhanced emotional intelligence. FEAR, she says, is what happens when<br />

feelings eliminate attainable results. You kick off your shoes and play with<br />

the muse, using your imagination. You have fun with her. And you learn<br />

that fun has value.<br />

At the Creativity Showroom, imagination is in charge. And about that<br />

imagination, she tells me the best quote about imagination you will ever<br />

hear. “Worry is just poor imagination! she says.” That gem is from my<br />

friend Ali Fowler. Smiling widely she says that it pays to have good friends<br />

who are wise and that you may very well find them when you participate<br />

at the showroom.<br />

ON OCT 16, 2019 at Columbia University in Paris, the reading of the play “Amazing Grace is<br />

Yellow” written by <strong>Silver</strong> <strong>Wainhouse</strong>, received a standing ovation.<br />

“Amazing Grace is Yellow” is being prepared for a full production in the United States and France.<br />

He whispered and shouted when I tried<br />

to ignore him.<br />

I listened. Beauford reminded me that<br />

the stories of people of color die with<br />

them and that I was charged to tell his.<br />

Tell them who I was and what I tried to<br />

do he said. Tell them what I journeyed<br />

to find, he said.<br />



We visit cemeteries for a reason. We think of<br />

them as places of peace. On the way to a burial<br />

place we notice others, taking in their ages and<br />

read inscriptions of people we didn’t know.<br />

Why? Because messages ride the winds that<br />

cross cemeteries; and we go there to receive<br />

them. We breathe them in and they bury inside<br />

us claiming space.<br />

I went to the Thiais cemetery located outside<br />

Paris, to see the newly laid tombstone marking<br />

the grave of Beauford Delaney. Beauford<br />

grabbed me quickly and has not let me go. He<br />

took up space inside me and jumped around.<br />

I had listened and then I saw. An<br />

exhibit of six paintings of Beauford’s<br />

was being held at Galerie Intemporel.<br />

Eagerly, I purchased my ticket for the<br />

three hour train ride from Nîmes to<br />

Paris. On October 10, 2018 I saw the<br />

colors unfiltered by a computer screen<br />

or book print. I had to let others know<br />

of Beauford’s mastery.<br />

We are an increasing number of people<br />

studying, appreciating and sharing<br />

what we know of this great artist.<br />

And consider yourself warned. Open<br />

yourself to a mere bit of his story, and<br />

you will not be unmoved.<br />

So, I picked up my pen because of a<br />

challenge. I had said that a play should<br />

be written and was challenged to be<br />

the one to write it. Beauford made me<br />

notice colors, and to want to listen<br />

again to songs he liked with newly<br />

tuned ears. The title came easily. He<br />

told me.<br />

Joseph was so inspired by the play<br />

Amazing Grace is Yellow that he created a<br />

series of paintings. The cast rehearsed in<br />

his space and he was able to witness the<br />

unfolding of the play. He surprised <strong>Silver</strong><br />

with a painting he titled victory after the<br />

standing ovation.<br />

Review by Michael Tingay - GlobalAffairs Specialist<br />

International Herald Tribune, Editor Financial Times,<br />

former correspondent<br />

The three-act portrayal of the<br />

life, work, struggle, end and era<br />

of Beauford Delaney struck a<br />

series of chords when presented<br />

in 2019 in English in France.<br />

The appeal of diversity is one<br />

chord. Marginalization of artists<br />

everywhere is another. Then there<br />

is the universal paradox that no<br />

amount of pain extirpates human<br />

capacity to produce beauty.<br />

The drawing power of the gay, black<br />

American 20th-century painter<br />

was manifest in the diversity of<br />

people at Reid Hall on Columbia<br />

University’s campus in the French<br />

capital. Paris residents aged<br />

in their eighties, one of whom<br />

had known the artist in person,<br />

rubbed shoulders with millenials.<br />

Nationals from around the world,<br />

uncategorisable as to backgrounds,<br />

persuasions, tastes and motivations<br />

fell under the spell of Patrick<br />

Rameau, Haitian-born bilingual<br />

actor and arguably in the context,<br />

alchemist. As Rameau penetrated<br />

the role of Beauford Delaney via<br />

the printed page and the spoken<br />

word, his voice infused <strong>Wainhouse</strong>’s<br />

words with joy, horror, remorse and<br />

anguish.<br />

The marginalization of black<br />

American artists is a poignant<br />

theme for Europeans. In the<br />

twentieth century France paid<br />

respects to 60,000 dead US soldiers<br />

for coming to the rescue during<br />

two successive world wars by<br />

welcoming Americans who stayed<br />

on, regardless of skin color. The<br />

French ignored the racist rules<br />

imposed on Americans in their<br />

own country and welcomed their<br />

musicians, dancers, writers and<br />

painters of color. It’s tough to<br />

thrive as a foreign artist in France<br />

as Beauford Delaney’s memory<br />

attests.<br />

Neither despair nor madness<br />

negates the universal paradox that<br />

out of pain can emerge beauty.<br />

This must be the transcendence<br />

that the playwright is reaching for<br />

in this play. In the opinion of this<br />

writer <strong>Wainhouse</strong> achieves flashes<br />

of genius in her capacity to imagine<br />

herself inside the soul of a man who<br />

died in 1979. That is not nothing<br />

in the creative hands of black<br />

American woman living in France in<br />

the 2020s.<br />

That the cast of actors and, in<br />

empathy, the audience should<br />

join together to sing the anthem<br />

that is ‘Amazing Grace’ was to<br />

this writer, predictable. What was<br />

unpredictable was the swelling of unaffected<br />

emotion at the end building into a standing<br />

ovation that took the actors and playwrightdirector<br />

<strong>Wainhouse</strong> quite by surprise.<br />

The October 16 2019 event that underpins<br />

this article was the first of five readings<br />

using professional actors, each individually<br />

sponsored by private arrangement, in Paris,<br />

London, New York, Atlanta and Los Angeles.<br />

If a play is a product, then the plan to test<br />

it in five major global cities in the form<br />

of sponsored professional readings is an<br />

innovation to be welcomed by actors and<br />

audiences alike. London, New York, Atlanta<br />

and Los Angeles represent distinct creative<br />

ecosystems.<br />

Takeaway food<br />

for thought: could<br />

<strong>Wainhouse</strong> do for<br />

Beauford Delaney<br />

what Lin-Manuel<br />

Miranda has done<br />

for Alexander<br />

Hamilton?<br />

Thank you for meeting me on the pages of my magazine.<br />

Recently, I was asked to be the closing speaker at an event honoring<br />

the late author, Richard Wright. His granddaughter, Ellen Hervé Wright,<br />

requested my presence.<br />

In addition to his novels, Richard Wright wrote beautiful haïkus. Ellen<br />

sent me one she wrote herself thanking me and I would like to share it<br />

with you because it mirrors my feelings.<br />
