If you truly go crazy, it's best to get paid for it.-HST

As my impending 50th birthday looms larger than life in October, I have been thinking of ways to mark the milestone.

The fact that someone like me lived that long should be enough, but I feel it should be memorable. And no, I have no desire to completely cliche my lifestyle by skydiving. It is not a rule. I cannot see myself hurling me from a perfectly good aircraft-not on my best day.

So I thought of something. That little nigglin' thought, in the back of my mind for years, and I think it stands for something, a change in my life.

Finally doing what I've wanted my whole life, letting the outcome be what it may.

I'm finding an open mike night. I'm performing standup.

I have nothing left to lose.

Go fot it!!!

My new disclaimer...yeah I know.

Okay, the old disclaimer was tired. The ideas were outdated and keeping me stuck in a place I don't want to be now for something more refreshing.

I have recently changed my views regarding women. Seems I had some issues with the fairer sex due to past pain and self- centered fear. (Yes...duh applies.)

I'm done with that.

Being in recovery has helped me change my entire life, perceptions and attitudes. I cannot change my history but I can change my today and my future.

I recently realized that the women I know in recovery are some of the strongest, bravest, most gentle and kind teachers I have ever had. You exemplify integrity and spiritual growth, and I hope you know who you are.

Some may know of my past marital and relationship history and been a participant in them as well. It's past and that's where it the past.

I own my part in those failures but claim no more responsibility in any misery you may be experiencing. I am sorry, but it's time to get off the cross. We need the wood.

Thank you all...
