My 2012 Message To the World

not to anyone here. This is one o' them cathartic posts, mostly for me to broadcast a mission statement.

When I was young, I was dirt poor, the son of an entertainer and <gasp> a woman with no father in the home, didn't care about sports and was arty. Result, I was underestimated. I proved everyone wrong.

In the mid 2000's I became deathly sick and lost everything including damn near my life. Before I was even discharged to come home, people I'd trained, helped and worked for and with were talking together about how I was finished and dancing on my grave. Almost but not quite motherfuckers.

I've spent the last 6 years just rebuilding and repairing the FOUNDATION of what is my life and in 2012 I'm healthy or at least my health is under control, and business is beginning to pick up to the point I can afford to really do what I do which is market the product I market best....me. Those of you who have forgotten me, who fucked me over when I got sick, who think I'm too old...... keep underestimating me you assholes... I'm coming back after my business, my income and ability to do for myself and my family andyou. You wrote me off. You fucked up.

I'll retire the way I've lived my life... on my own terms when I'm ready, and not living off Social Security and dog food either.

I already printed this and taped it to my desk....it's the first thing I'll see every day.

@blueveinedthrobber,
You have always reminded me of my younger brother (also a musician and entertainer). He is very sensitive as you are and was also close to death. You and my brother have a kind of boldness that keeps you going.

@blueveinedthrobber,
Bear, you've always been one of my favorite people and I didn't want to lose you. We've shared difficult medical times and I still like you lots!!!

Right on, bear. I think you will find legions of friends and well wishers as you do just what you said you will.
