It’s been 2 months since I posted last. I have since really had some amazing changes in my life… sooo amazing. I actually got struck by lightning and couldn’t walk. I expected that a few years ago.. I was waiting for it then.. but now? Heh.. yeah.. now.
So.. here I am.. living a tremendous grrr grrrr grrrreat life. I truly appreciate all of my friends very much. I am fortuante in this world and I live such a amazing life.
I love you.
I believe this will be my last entry for now.
I gotta go.
(I really struggle with this)
I received news today of a death. I am so sorry about this.. I really don’t know how to say what I feel… maybe that is my Achilles heel in life… not knowing what to say at those critical moments… not knowing… I say nothing.
It’s interesting that right now that I have been crying… A tear drops as I type this.. I don’t do this often.. I know that. . I understand this moment and I will live it. There is a release to the tears that drop.
It’s time. I owe this to myself. I gotta do this for me. I don’t care what the cost… the ol’ throw caution to the wind..
I will set myself up in a really good situation. I have to.
many props to my new friend: Gopal Seshadrinathan
I am sorry for the way I have treated you. I am not the best at life. I really am not. I am sorry. I am sorry for the forgotten birthdays.. forgotten parties you have invited me to.. I am so sorry for not being able to give more to you in those moments.
When I call you back 4 days/weeks/months/years/ later… I promise you that I am giving you my heart.
I promise you that.
I am so sorry..

I love the work by Mike Malloy. I think he is incredible and speaks to a moment. I think that photo really captures a moment well.
I got an email from him the other day.. He is a really nice guy. I went to the site and purchased a few of his prints… now the lg style luck did what it does… and I got the wrong shipment.. I got some real wacky and funky stuff.. not what I ordered at all. My first thought was it was God’s way of telling me that I need to change my style a little. So I am going to pick one of those whack-job prints and frame it.
I will place my 2nd order for what I ordered now.

I have gotten a barrage of emails the past few days about Hurricane Flossie. My frat nickname in college was Flossie (because I saw some old lady one time and yelled “flossie” at her) and that I can sometimes tend to be relentless like a hurricane.

I was with some old old friends a week ago. We went out to a restaurant. I was told that my past antics were legendary. That people knew of me and the things that I have done.
Heh.. I have never been called “legendary” before. Love it though.
This is the funniest email I have ever gotten from him.. this is from my “million dollar” business partner:
