When I look back at this time.in my life in my Seventies, in my Eighties, I want to know that I gave it all I got. That I gave myself a shot. I want to see this moment anticipating having perspective on it later. I’m so scared, because I’m not doing what I’m supposed to be doing. But for the first time in my life I’m getting palpitations and nausea from anxiety, and I’m PRAYING that I’m doing what I’m meant to be doing.

Jumping in feet first has always seemed to work out for you.

My mother often asks me when I’m going to get a job, if I don’t realize I have to work. I always ask her “So you don’t think what I’ve been doing for the last seven months is working?”
She never has an answer for me.

Two of my best friends in the world, Bmac, and Jon, before our 10 yr High School reunion at Port Charlotte High.
My reunion was a two-day affair that was… not great, but it was fun, and was great to see a lot of old faces I hadn’t seen in nearly a decade, especially since I haven’t been on Facebook in years. It was great to see what people did with their lives, to hear people had gotten married, had kids, whether they moved far from home, stayed close, or done both..
I performed for everyone on second night… I think that was mistake. It took me from being another part of the class, to being this guy who did this thing… it’s all anyone wanted to talk to me about after.
As I’ve said before, the thing about endeavoring to separate yourself from the crowd, is that you end up separating yourself from the crowd.
Not from these two though. Me and Jon, and Bmac, we’re brothers. They don’t give a shit what I do. I love them for that.

Logic is many times a disguise for fear.

Today, I will focus on being less logical which means I will be more fearless.

This is TRUTH.

And it is good for us to recignize that because in the midst of all that, God loves us, and God is good.

These are the only wise things I know

Love you all.

There is no shame in any of these things as long as you are acting on behalf of your fellow man, and you are LEARNING. There is NO SUCH THING as a stupid question, I don’t care what it is, except for the one you didn’t ask when you didn’t know because you were afraid. Don’t let ANYBODY EVER make you feel ashamed about learning. If they do, it’s because you being vulnerable makes them feel vulnerable, which is a scary place for them. So they silence those fears by deriding you. Don’t let them. Learn, grow, RISK, and thereby lead, by example.

Let’s all tell stories about fear…

They can be true, first hand or second hand, but it’s got to be a story about someone being confronted by fear, and how they dealt with it.

… This might be a good game for the Speare Bearer’s audiences to play…

All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Stay hungry. Stay foolish.
