Standing on the edge...with one foot in space.

Writing in public, (I am using the library computer) is hard. Difficult to write in my robe and scratch myself while "Story time" unfolds across the room. But no matter...this is just an update.

I pulled the trigger and booked my first three minutes of time doing stand up. If you are in the Dallas area and read this blog, I would love to see you at the event. February 19, next Thursday at Back Door Comedy at the Doubletree in Dallas. I75 and Northwest Highway. The show starts at eight-thirty.

If you can make it leave me a comment on the blog.

Further update...I made my appointment at The VA and have to go back Friday for lab work. When I saw the Doctor last week he disturbed me. He told me I had to stop masturbating. Apparently it bothered the other Veterans.

I'm actually using that in my set. I have no shame...

Geoffrey, I would love to see your act. Do I need to buy tickets? Is there really something wrong medically or was that a part of the upcoming act? Glad to see you writing again even if it is at the public library. Keep up the journaling it has always helped me to have an outlet for the madness in my head.

Well,guy, I am finished with the whole thing. Reading it start to finish since last night and will continue. Maybe your readers just hesitate to comment. That's been the case for me with other blogs. Didn't realize they wanted comments 'til I started my own musing. I do but not critical - being sensitive, crying easily, I can be persuaded to give it up quickly. Shows we all need to be needed in some manner, even if its through our writing.

You have 2000 readers? I wish...

Your writing is very good; that is up until the last couple months. I immediately noticed a drastic change. And worrying about age? 'tain't nothing can be done about it. Wish I could go back to 49...truly. Worry helps nothing...I know from a lifetime of it. Now I get breaks from it..."que sera, sera" and it eases. Beating my head against a brick wall only brings bruised skin and pounding headache. Sometimes it pays not to think; it all works out in the end. It really does and if it doesn't happen as you desire, one day you look back and say, "it was okay".

We're only here for a short time, Geoffrey, and as I posted on my blog, Kahlil Gibran's words, "...and when you've reached the mountaintop, your climb will just begin". When one realizes the meaning of these words, the climb we are in now becomes so much easier. Our God is not 'up there' or 'out there'; but here, right here in everything and within. Everything. I had to look to see. I had to see to find. and just so you know, I'm not religious...

Hi, wondering if you make good money with the ads on you I am thinking of doing so but NOT if there is no money to speak of.

Geoffrey, Sorry about being a no-show. I'm embarrassed to say I fell asleep and didn't get up until after 9pm. How did it go? Did you have a good time? I hope so. Again I'm sorry I was a no-show.


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...
