Let’s just review some of the things that have happened since the beginning of the year 2020. Put on a mask. Stay at home. Stay six feet apart. Close down the country. Call “criminals” “protesters.” Get people used to virus testing. Change rules over night. Allow people to tear down statues and deface government property. Prosecute citizens for practicing their Constitutional rights. Apologize for history. Set up check-points. Let citizens have a taste of what it is like to depend on the country for capital. Eliminate small businesses through a financial crunch. Shut down religious gatherings. It’s not even the middle of August and all of the aforementioned has already happened.
I fear that in many ways it is already too late. I’m fifty-six years old and am clearly playing the back nine in life. I don’t wanna be bothered. I wanna be left alone. I have a few things left on my list in life. Number one is getting my eighty year old mother out of Florida and back here in Cleveland with family. I never used to think that way. I used to sneak out of the house as a kid just to get away from her. Funny what happens when you get older and seek wisdom.
I thought I made the correct decision in choosing Willoughby, Ohio as my final destination. I was wrong. Corruption and deceit is alive and well here in this small town. Is it everywhere and we never noticed? Where should you look for it first? Is it already too late?? I wish I had the answers because I clearly missed the first round of questions.
I think we all have been doing a lot of reflecting in the past few months. I left radio in 2011 and have been battling various health issues ever since. Radio was fun…..key word there is “WAS.” I am not bitter. I played the cards I was dealt but with hindsight being 20/20 I made a lot of bad decisions.
I am a creative person by nature. I love to speak and write. I don’t take orders very well….I prefer to give them. I had this luxury in radio and as long as I was left alone by management I was happy and successful. Radio forced me to move around a lot. I am now back in Cleveland because of family and good health care. My eighty year old mother lives in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, I am not married and don’t have any pets or children. My quest is to move mom here.
If I had to do it all over again I would have stayed here in Northeast Ohio. This is home. I ran away from all my problems when I was eighteen and now I’m back to make the best of the time I have left. I should have paid more attention in high school. I have been making up for lost time by watching a lot of documentaries and reading…..it’s not the same. I had the chance…..I blew it.
I would have made a great attorney. I’m a perfectionist and a workaholic. I like to argue when I am confident of my beliefs…..be forewarned….I am very confident. Life is short and you have only one chance. When my time on Earth is done I hope I have made up enough of my “wasted time” to go to the next level……after all….isn’t that truly our main purpose in this world? Thanks for reading.
