"Peace on That" is an affirmation of sort that we used in the spoken word circles of Chicago. After a poet spoke profound words, we'd all say, 'Peace on That' as a way of saying, 'there's nothing else to be said.'
I've come to a moment in my life where there is nothing left for me to say. So, I'm not going to say anything more. I started this blog because I wanted the world to know that I hated Larry Elders and George W. Bush. But instead, I found an outlet to speak my mind and make some very good friends. I do consider you guys my friends. I feel like Norm from Cheers. I've been welcomed around the blogasphere and it is nice to know that I'm respected by so many.
But most of what you read here is only part of me. It's the side of me that is easy to deal with. It's the side of me that is easy for me to deal with. But there is a darker side. A side created by years of family chaos, death, abandonment and all the ills that come along with having had to experience such a painful childhood. I survived by going deep within myself and navigating the troubled waters by pretending everything was calm. As an adult, I remember those calm waters but those storms damaged me. In a way, I was so caught up in loving the calm that I never took time to repair the damages.
Now, I'm left to navigate adult waters with a vessel damaged in childhood. For some time it worked. But it works no longer. So, I have to pull this puppy into dry-dock and hopefully get it into sailing condition. This blog represents those calm waters - so I have to let it go.
I will miss you guys. I left my family back in Chicago and in a way, you folks became my surrogate family. Thank you for the kind words the fun and I hope that you enjoyed it. This may not be forever... but it could be. A lot of damage can happen over 37 years.
I'll leave the blog up. Besides the memory of others, this blog may be the only evidence I have that I ever existed.
I wish you all well. So Long. Good night… and good luck.
PS: Bush is a spawn of the devil. :)
Thanks for the kind words. I don't think I will end the blog completely. However, I am going to step away for 30 days to get some things in order. So get at me on July 8, 2006 when I will continue my rage against the machine. Besides, there is much more to write about. Bush, Top Ten NBA stars, Top Ten Cartoon Cuties and we do have to find out how The Midnight Booty Clap story ends.
Just wish me well and I'll see you guys in a month.
