As August 4th approaches, my birthday, my 52nd birthday, I ask myself what do I want, what gift do I want the Lord to bring me?
I guess I could complicate it, get overly analytical about it all, go through a whole childhood issues analysis, get all academic and intellectual about it all. At the end of the day it really is not that complicated at all. In a nutshell I wish to never depend or rely on the government for anything, not for sustenance, or for anything other than homeland security and mass transportation I wish to be totally self reliant, no matter what my health situation is, no matter what my situation in life is period. I wish to do what I love which is the arts, and life coaching, to earn my daily bread through that in some way, and see past seeds I have sown bear fruit. I also want to preserve the parish I am working on helping to preserve and help grow. I wish to do solo gigs and earn my daily bread, to do seminars, earn my daily bread. I also wish to keep volunteering for the parish, it pleases my heart, spirit and soul. I wish to have a place to call totally my own and a group of artists to work with and record my material with, to pray with daily, which I have formed, my own group that prays, jams, performs and records together. That is what I wish for my 52nd birthday. What about the icing and cherry on the cake as they say? That would be a really great and dependable, reliable like minded artistic, as well as like minded worldview kind of guy who shares my heritage, faith, and conservative worldview, values to share it all with, to artistically create, jam etc… with, even perform with, real partnership. Someone whom I can start this Gossamer Wings Arts Circle with, immediately.
If anyone wants to know what my prayer is for my birthday, which is coming up in a few days, this is is, in a nutshell.
