- Hey, boy. Hey. Hey, look.

- Look what?


Hey, you better chill.

Hey, hey. Sh*t, n*gger.

Stop putting your hands up.

This is a bridge.

Hold on. Hold on.



Tommy, come on, man. Wake up, bro.

Tommy, we hit somebody. Damn.

Come on. We gotta get the f*** out of here.

Every once in a proverbial blue moon

we stumble across an author

who may verily change our lives.

Someone from we know not from where,

perhaps even Dante's own paradise,

who assembles the words

that we must read and hear.

None of your scribbler of syntax,

but a heavenly scribe of powerful ideas.

An absolute and true author.

Ladies and gentleman,

I present to you Thomas Carter.

We can do better than that for Thomas.

You're welcome.

May I ask you about

your near death experience?

Did you see a white light?

No. Nothing like that.

What did happen?

Well, that's for the next book.

Thank you.

You're welcome.

Could you make this out

to Angel, please?

- Sure.

- Thank you.

You've read this a lot.


"It's better to light a candle

than to curse the darkness."

Why did you write that quote?

Well, it harkens back to a wise proverb.

"Self-doubt can be a demon."

I try to warn people to be mindful

of the difference between

what's harmful and what's reflective.

Do you do one-on-one sessions?

No. Sorry, not anymore.

But I can refer you elsewhere.

If you change your mind,

I could pay your fee.

Thank you, Mr. Sanchez.

What issue exactly did the book

help you overcome?

The death of my mom.

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to pry.

I keep seeing her.

What do you mean by that?

I see her in all these different places.

I know that's not possible.

I know it's not true.

But I keep seeing her

in these different places.

Was she a good mother?

She was heaven.

Then she will be reborn.

And she's at peace.

It's her karma.

Thank you. Thank you.

...showers and thunderstorms expected

to continue into tomorrow morning.

Rain tapering off tomorrow afternoon,

followed by partial clearing and a high of...

What exactly is a praline?

It's good.

Your editor called.

I told him we can't do the on the road part

of the tour until after Memorial Day.

It's just weird, you know?

I mean what am I supposed to do?

Sign my signature and take pictures?

Don't do that.

People love meeting authors.

You're like a literary rock star.

Maybe you'll have some cute groupies.

I already have a cute groupie.

Yes, you do.

I'll throw my panties at you.

You left the window open.

It's okay, baby, it's

just getting a breeze.

- I think I heard something.

- What?

You just heard the wind. It's okay.

- What's up, little brother?

- What the f***!

- Jesus Christ!

- What up, punk!

What the f*** are you doing?

Man! What's up, man?

Just rode in on the bike, man.

Just come home from the county, baby.

You know I had to come and see you.

Getting that money now, baby.

You scared the hell out of me.

Don't I always?


Where have you been?

Mom and Dad haven't talked to you

in almost a year.

They ain't exactly talking to me right now,

man, since I come home from the county.

You couldn't call nobody?

It's the middle of the night.

I got to call you? You're my brother.


Y'all are looking at me

like I'm a ghost or something.

It's me, baby.

You got a beer or something in there?

In the fridge.


I'm sorry.

He can't stay here.

I know. Just, all right...

- He can't stay here.

- Look. All right.

Let me talk to him.

Now meditation is very calming

if you stay quiet within yourself.

Close your eyes and breathe in through
