Hello all, I just wanted to shoot you a quick note to explain what happened to me recently and why it has caused a delay in my writing. The other day I discovered all my jewelry had been stolen from my house and it momentarily knocked me off my path. These things happen in life and I felt like maybe sharing with all of you may make me feel a tad better? Writing is a form of catharsis and I would recommend it to anyone struggling with an unresolved issue! At first I was feeling very broken and hopeless, the jewelery was very valuable both sentimentally and fiscally. The former obviously being the bigger blow and I was devastated but then I took a moment as I always try to do and looked around at what is happening to others on this giant ball of life hurtling through a vast universe connected to countless galaxies. In Syria the death toll, is in the tens of thousands, brutal regime after brutal regime have all but decimated society’s all over the world. People like us, like you and me gone forever taken by torture and extreme suffering! There is evil in the world, there is no doubt about that! A little boy lost his life in Boston, 8-year-old Martin Richard, and many others were injured beyond repair. And of course the 26 victims, mostly children, of Sandy Hook taken from this life by a madman. Western society’s need for more “stuff” has contributed to thousands of deaths in India recently. Images most haunting of which include two of “us” humans embraced in death and I think to myself at least they had each other and isn’t that what life is all about? We ask ourselves, the big question of life, why am I here? What is my purpose? That is just it, to be there for each other, to leave the world a better place than you have found it. And then there are those like Ariel Castro, who seek out to do the opposite, to torture and humiliate. They should be sought out and destroyed, like accused future killer Geoffry Portway. To anyone in the world who can read this if you are suffering, oppressed, tortured, there is always hope, never give up, never let it break you, have faith and amazing things can happen like the miracle of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, And Michelle Knight freed from slavery after 10 long years. After pondering all this I did not feel, “better” necessarily but I had perspective. I am lucky, so lucky to have the life I have even though I have had to work for it and fight and keep fighting. A good friend once likened life to a video game, complete the challenge, slay the demon, take a step, and repeat. Channel your inner ninja and don’t let anything take you down, if you have bad habits drop em, work to be the best person you can be. That is what life is all about, that is why we are here. So now my little problems bother me not and I pray tonight for all those out there who have not yet or never will reach that place. Its fun to escape and enjoy life but I also feel it is important to be serious and recognize what others are dealing with too. I hope to bring more film/ motorcycle related stories very soon, thanks for listening!
