And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy those about me…

Been a while, how are you? You look good, have you lost weight? New haircut? Oh, and Senator, just one more thing: love your suit…

I hesitate to say I’m back because jesus, mary & joseph didn’t I hear about saying I was back a month ago, then dropping away…

Here’s what’s been running through my mind – there’s a void most of us carry around. It’s that place in our lives where what we’ve been hanging onto . . . clinging to for dear life . . . is stripped away. It’s that place in us where we let go of what we know, what we think we know, and what we want and surrender to the unknown.

It is the place of saying and meaning, ‘I don’t know.’ It means standing there with our hands empty for a while, sometimes watching everything we wanted disappear; our self-image, our definition of who we thought we should be, the clones we’ve created of ourselves, the people we thought we had to have, the things we thought were so important to collect and surround ourselves with, the job we were certain was ours, the place we thought we’d live in all our lives. . .

Surrender control to the supreme wisdom and authority of whatever you believe in, deep in your soul. Step into the void with courage. Learn to say, I don’t know. That’s not blind faith. It’s pure faith, faith in yourself – faith that will lead you wherever your soul wants and needs to go.

So that’s what I’m going to try and do from now on, I’m not going to stifle, I’m going to take the path less travelled, the one I want to follow and not the one I think will best benefit those around me. I’ve got a birthday coming pretty soon and the realization that – more than likely – I’ve got more birthdays behind me than in front of me.

It all adds up to pretty much the standard, piss or get off the pot, you don’t get into your 40’s or 50’s, 60’s and beyond without your fair share of regrets. Other than my radiant & sublime children, what claim and testament shall stand as my legacy.

Well, to that end, do I usher forth a new phase of my life, I’m not sure where it will lead but to the best of my ability I intend to minimize regrets for the remainder of my days and live a life that builds to a crescendo of vitality and accomplishment.

Ha ha, just kidding, I’ll probably just end up playing more x-box and doubling up on my Doritos binges…

Have a great day.
