The quick brown fox.

I wrote this beautiful entry yesterday about God and human nature and the universe and our relationship to these things....about a lot. Really, it was good. I mean, I remember it was good, but I have no proof because I clicked on something wrong and lost it. Boy did that make me grumpy. Plus, I didn't have it in me to do it over, since it was from the heart and off the cuff the first time and I just didn't think I could repeat it. I hate it when that happens.

I spent the day reading to my dying father today. I love him.

I have lots to tell about my family situation, but will have to let it leak out slowly because it's pretty intense stuff.

For tonight, just know that Saturday at 8pm at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, on Venables just west of Victoria, the Stretch Mouth'd Rascals will be performing whatever we write for the Theatre Under the Gun festival. It is a 48 hour playwrighting festival; we will receive an inspiration package Thursday morning and will write and rehearse a 15 minute piece to perform Saturday evening. It's always a fun evening, so c'mon down.

That is all for tonight, I have some sorting to do in my head before you get a really juicy entry.

Hey...just wanted to pop in here and check on you. I'm glad you're getting to spend some "quality time" with your dying father. That is very important.

It sucks that you lost what you wrote earlier. I've had that happen to me, and I hate it, too. Maybe, someday soon, you'll get inspired and write something even better.

Peace.

Hey Warrior, what did you read to your Dad?

Hi, it's your uncle the computer geek. Spoke to your mom on the weekend; told me about some heartache you are having in regards to some family members. I guess you're glad to have your comedy gigs to take your mind off your "family situation."

I like to drop by your blog from time to time; how do you like my new blog? I'm going to try and write something at least once a week. I might even attempt to get a schizophrenia newsletter I receive to publish my blog address (Schizophrenia Society of Ontario, Toronto Chapter).

I haven't heard from you in a while, so I thought I'd drop you a line and see how you are doing. I know this is a hard time for you, so I thought it might help you to know that I'm here to offer my support in whatever capacity I can.

Peace.
