‘Comedy is like yer in a mine & yer digging 4 nuggets & I just want 2 get as much gold out as I can in the time that I have left.’ Jerry Seinfeld paraphrased from Charlie Rose Interview

I wanted to thank you for the support you gave while I was writing my life out a number of months back. I want to apologize for stopping the telling of the story, but I’m hoping that in the next couple of weeks that we’ll finally be through with the stress that’s kept me from feeling overtly like writing. I’ve wondered, like many who blog I imagine, what it would be like to make a living as a writer, to depend on  cranking out a 1000 or 2000 words per day while weaving a cohesive story… what I found is that people who can make themselves write, pull that from their very soul, while they themselves are tormented by daily life, and having that commitment is a very hard one to keep. Computers have made it easier to write as we don’t have to stay chained to a desk, I’m very glad to have a laptop that I bought myself for my last birthday, my first laptop (a nice reconditioned Dell D600 w/ a warranty from ebay) since 1999.  Anywho… the point was, we’ve gone through a very tough 6 months, heck the last three years have been tough, but in a good kind of teaching and learning and re-learning life kind of way… I haven’t seemed to want to be in the past, recounting and retelling it to you (and me) because I’ve been in the middle of the fire, in the testing, and in the moment. I have a great desire to jump to the end of the life I was recording w/ you all as witnesses, and tell you how it ‘ends’ or at least get caught up to real time, but I don’t want to ruin the story for those who’ve taken the time to read it either. So I’ll leave this post up for now, just to let you understand where I’ve been, sort of. And just to let you know I intend to come back soon, and pick up where I left off.
