You will never drag me down. Never. You will never, ever, make it impossible for me to speak and to convey my thoughts to my readers, all of them even those that do not like me but can come here and always depend on reading about media matters and subjects interesting to them.
You have tried to silence me through intimidation and innuendo. You have made fun of, belittled me, my friends and foes alike but they still keep on showing up.
Against all odds, I continue to produce. Not all of it is perfect by any means and sometimes I have the urge to just give up and surrender but I can't. My life is a little busy of late; just trying my best to navigate through all of it under less than ideal circumstances and add a little bit to the conversation. That's all.
Truth be told this is no diversionary tactic requesting sympathy or redemption. I had my day in the sunlight and have now figured out, belatedly, that there's far more important things in life than fooling around the relative triviality of some little media blog. Health is important. Physical, mental, all of it. This? This is what it should be and is. It's a place where you can hang out, all of you, a cyber bar to have a few and not have to worry about driving home when too many libations have been had.
Take the time someday, today for example, to tell the person you care for that you love them. Life is too short and unfair. Life is a luxury we often take for granted and only realize that when fate can take an ugly turn. We have no control over that. And when we're fortunate to experience life's upsides and its magic we take it for granted. Don't.
I had an epiphany. I wondered aloud what it would be like for all of us to realize how puny all of this is; how so much of it really, in the big picture didn't matter at all. Forgive me for ruminating about something you might not be accustomed to here just understand that this isn't life and death. I take it seriously and despite losing my shirt every day just trying to survive literally and figuratively, the biggest and most important thing is keeping it all, this, in perspective. It's a life lesson.
And ultimately, life rules, for better or worse.
