To those of you residing on this side of the pond, Happy 4th! If you can, take some time to just enjoy, laugh and leave the worries for Monday. That's what holidays are all about.
I'm not a big anniversary guy or a big fan of counting time, but I would be remiss if I didn't give the fact that 4 years ago today, at approximately 10 something PM, as the last of James Dolan's private fireworks extravaganza was bursting through the sky over Oyster Bay, Long Island, my soul was reborn and the beginning of an authentic, creative, joyful existence was set in motion by making a simple decision and seeing it through. The decision was simple; the work to make it a reality was challenging but rewarding.
Things have been super busy around here. It's now less than 5 weeks to my wedding to my editor, lover, best friend and my heart, Jill. We still have lots of last minute "stuff" to get done for the festive beachside ceremony. We also are in the process of fixing, painting and emptying Jill's house so we can put in on the market as we don't need two dwellings and the expense associated with that luxury.
My heart is filled with joy as all three of my children will be in attendance. The thought of finding this kind of bond again and having my kids there to share in the celebration of it was way off the radar 4 years ago. It's amazing how things can turn when you create your reality instead of being a victim to your fears.
I'm getting close to finishing my first novel which I've mentioned here on these posts and I've decided to change the name from "The Rooooomz" to 12 Steps to dead; mayhem in the rooms of AA. A tad bit more dramatic and more likely to be discovered in a Google search :-)
I've been playing my guitars quite a bit and am getting ever closer to mustering up the courage to record my anti AA anthem (Also a name change somewhat)......Escape from AA- (Who's laughing now)
My guitar playing is fine, it's the singing thing which is keeping me from getting it out there :-(
Peace out and enjoy the holiday
