F-R-I-E-N-D-S


I have friends that simply mean the world to me. I may actually regard them more like family, than some family itself. Some I've been through almost twenty years of life with. Some a much shorter time, but it doesn't mean that they didn't have just as strong of an impact on my me.

A shoulder to cry on. A voice on the other side of the phone. Words on a screen, either from 5 minutes away or 5,000 miles.

In the best of times. In the worst of times.

Drinking buddies & a light at the end of the tunnel.

I would do just about anything for them.

But sometimes, friends leave. By no fault of your own. And there's really nothing you can do about it. People act out of their own perceptions and there's absolutely no way you will ever change their view. But I can say this, I have never acted out towards a friend maliciously, and I never plan to do so. It may not be clear what is right or wrong, but there's always a good and bad to any situation.

So let's just say the friends that stay through thick and thin, will be the ones until the end. This I know for sure.

Patience Pays...


Ah the waiting, the waiting. The work that works. The creations keep creating...and still...the waiting.

"Abused patience turns to fury."
Thomas Fuller

How many more scripts do I have to write before one gets bought? How many more novels? How many more songs do I have to compose? How many more poems? Ah, then there's the answer...no one knows.

But I know, FOR SURE, that I'll just keep on doing it. Because my greatest fear is failure. And... "You haven't failed until you give up." So I won't...EVER.

"Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world."
Harriet Tubman

This is my first attempt to begin blogging again...there is hopefully more to come soon!
