Half a Century in the Making . . .

First, please play the Dream Catcher Song at the top, while you read . . . Calling All Angels is a favorite of mine, as is Lenny Kravitz. Enjoy . . .

Today I turn 50 . . . That’s right, The BIG 5 0.

I don’t feel old . . . Inside I just never grew up. I still do the same things, those things I did when I was seventeen. I still act the same, at least that’s what I tell my self.

I used to be so serious, not any more. Now every day is a treat, every day I sing a song. For my birthday, my wife got me a feel good button. You know the easy button, kind of looks like that only when you push it . . . James Brown does his Rendition of my Feeling of life and I always sing along . . .

I feel good . . . doodle, doodle, doodle-do.
I knew that I would, now . . . doodle, doodle, doodle-do.
I feel good . . . doodle, doodle, doodle-do.
I knew that I would, now . . . doodle, doodle, doodle-do.
So good . . . doot, doot.
so good . . . doot, doot . . . I got you woooooooooooo.

And so the other night as I said once before . . .

I was getting ready to do my daily five mile walk. I heard my wife come in the front door.
“Hey, I’m going for a walk . . . ,“ I shouted out to her.
“You are, are you?”
That’s when I looked up in disbelief . . . My oldest son was standing there like he just made a cake or something . . . You see he lives in Tucson, AZ., 2500 miles away. He had just flown in for my birthday.

And that’s when I stammered some unrecognizable words. For a moment, I had lost all ability to speak, at least coherently . . . Oh and that night I didn’t go for my walk . . . Dreams, do come true.

50 Years in the making and you know, it’s the little things that matter the most. An occasional good cigar, a good book, spending time with those you love and spending time with my internet friends . . . And of course, I still write each day no matter what . . . That’s what writer’s do.

And that’s what I do, from 12:00 am to 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning. That’s when I find the time to work on my novel, Sins of a Father . . . And very soon, it will be finished. And another Dream will come to fruition. You see, Dreams do come true.

Dreams IN Motion . . .

Need a good cry? Watch the video feed of Pay-it-forward on the side . . . Want a Link? – Make a difference, help The Cause. Comment them to me or shout out and I’ll share with the world . . . I haven’t Forgot, have you? What have you done for another person today? What have you done to make a difference?

Each and every day I try to make those I come in contact with, smile . . . Sometimes I act pretty silly. But I always get a smile, it may be a labored one, but still the person had a small upturn in the corners of their mouth. That’s what counts . . . A state change.

Many years ago I went to my Grandmother’s funeral. All my life, I thought of her as being poor. But that day, for the first time I knew she lived a rich life. One most of us would never have the good fortune to understand. You see this old lady had touched everyone in that church some way . . . She had touched them in such a way that they had found it necessary to come and say their Goodbyes . . . The church could hold four hundred people and the doors were overflowing into the street. And with tears running down my cheeks I knew this small lady had lived a good life, a life of no regrets . . . Dreams are yours to share. Dan
