l’ve been thinking for quite some time about this poem as recent events unfold .

William Blake, “The Grey Monk”

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world.

Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

Since this is the last Halloween before the November 3rd apocalypse, what are your favorite Halloween (or other) Costumes? Lacey and I were Maverick and Charlie from Top Gun a few years back.
