Next thing i know they are digging up the street and taking my space that i stay in the past 15 years, what to do,, head out of town , can't get into anything anyway, but thought i would check out the West Village, Perry Street no sooner got there and the energy level went up , found a nice little spot,, and soon had the pens out doing a drawing,, drew a crowd as well.I,m Energized, I,m on Fire,, the drawings are dropping out of the pens like magic,, watercolour paper comes along at Debbie and Daves party through Lynda, the new space is a groove, Ariel is fab, aria is Fab,, business is rockin,, BUT,, Head space is not right, woman trouble in my mind, shakin it, but got me out of sorts,, i,m doing ok but , and thats the trouble to many buts in my head, must be the age,, maybe its the hot can,t take the heat, New York Key West, Canada,, Friends all over the place , even doing this writing just can, t get the groove man,, just can,t get the groove,, have to sign out cause i need to fix the groove

Feeling Great at Sixty Eight

Yep,, turned 68 this Year,, and feeling pretty good,, not that theres not a whole lot of situations that need looking into and after,, but its all pretty good,, painting , drawing and most of all the health is ok,, having to behave myself a little more about what i,m eating and drinking,, but thats ok as well ,, having had the company of a woman in my life has made it all excellent,, and the kids and grandkids all seem to be enjoying their lives and doing good also which makes me very happy. Working on putting 7 new books together of a bit of my work,, 4 Key West books, 2 New York books,, a book of musicians,, as well need to have a couple books of my paintings done,,really need to get over to Europe as well,, so all that and all i want to do is hang out with that woman,, cause thats really what life is about,, that and the kids,, so left Canada in Jan. 2011, and had a couple good visits on my way to key west,, with Dave and Debbie,, Larry and Maryann and Ron and Suzi,, got down to key West and Quickly Found out that things down there had changed greatly again,, but adjusted to those changes and thought that maybe i should retire for the year,, and i did,, not to think that i wouldn,t do anything just that i didn,t have to do anything if i don,t want to,, hanging out in Key West,, was the best its ever been,, maybe it was the company of that beautiful woman but maybe it was the fact that the weather was the best ever,, anyway its been pertty darn good, life at 68.

Life At Full Speed

April 5th, 2011,, Key West,, the past 3 months,, 16 new oil paintings,, one of them 5 feet x 15 feet,, 3 of them 40 inches x6 feet,,, feeling good after not having oil painted for 3 years,, also a new series of drawings of musicians,, well under way with about 25 pieces done,, ny as well as key west musicians,, also have done 7 or 8 watercolours and maybe the same amount of new drawings.., now about my real life,, The Celestine Prophecy,,, The Tenth Insight,, and ,, The Secret of Shambhala,, and hopefully soon ,, The Twelve Insight,,, where it seems my path is heading ,, as well where its been the past forty years,, and then some,, for You See,, i have been on this path since i can remember at the age of six. Now again,, for what is even More Important in My Life Than even all of This,, The People,, Ive had in this life of mine,,as always I,m always at a loss for words that can even come close to express this "Value of Life", and am awed at the fact that no matter how You Try,, Or as many Times that You express,, What the People in your Life Have Meant and mean to You,,, it can not be to the slightest degree of what That "Real Value Is". At 68,, I,m Totally Blown Away,,that i,m alive,,, That what I have had,, and have,,and what i still am given Every day.
