for my good
but I fear
that I simply
I first met Miles Davis about 1947 and played a few jobs with him and Sonny Rollins at the Audubon Ballroom in Manhattan. During this period, he was coming into his own, and I could see him extending the boundaries of jazz even further.
I know that there are good things come to those who wait, but it seems that I have been waiting for an awfully long time and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier. at the same time, it seems that I just might be waiting for all of the wrong things and I am just being dumb about the whole thing. It seems that my whole life I have been waiting for something or someone to come along and help me with the journey. so far it seems that there have been very few and that the journey has been much too long.

until we need
God to take over.
not that I am complaining, the reason that I write emails is in order to gethem, but there are times when they come in bunches, which can be a good thing, but I wish that it was a little more consistent, but I will take what I can get. otherwise, all is well and that I will be hearing from you soon, so it goes. press on regardless. so it goes. press on regardless.

the search for love
the search for money
the world still turns
and nothing ever changes.
Well this maybe pushing things just a bit, but it would be safe to say that 2020 would be the year that most of us will soon forget, for any number of public and private reasons. It's all good because God is still in control. So it goes. Press on regardless.
I don't mind The Boss. I think he's an honest guy. I have some of his records, not all of them. I've met a couple of the E-Street guys, and they seem really cool.
“Either way, he figured a cup of coffee would hit the spot. For what is more versatile? As at home in tin as it is in Limoges, coffee can energize the industrious at dawn, calm the reflective at noon, or raise the spirits of the beleagured in the middle of the night.”

How much time is there in life?
all that we have is the moment
and the moment disappears
much too quickly
in which moments become time,
which becomes days
which becomes years
and then a life
it all becomes much too
as it quietly slips
until we are left standing place
I could not have said this better if I had said it myself. Of course, the one thing That I do know is that there are times when coffee just makes it all better.
Right now, I am finding myself working up to the idea that I am going have to be going back to work on the 13th. I was hoping to be able to leg this out for another couple off weeks, but that was not meant to be. The one thing that I do know is that the whole thing is not scaring me, but I am concerned, that having to wear the mask for six to eight hours a day. The concern being that it will aggravate my COPD, which is what I think happened when I went down the last time, but not knowing that I had COPD. So, wearing the mask just aggravated the condition and also living with pulmonary hypertension, may not be a good thing either. Well the way that it all worked out, I don’t have a choice in the matter right at the moment.
I am just concerned, that if I do go down again, that it will be worse then the last time and that I will have to start the whole process all over again. So, all that I can do right now is just pray about the whole thing and leave it in God’s hands.
In the meantime, I pray that you are well, and that I will be hearing from you soon. It is still good because God is still in control. So, it goes. Press on regardless.
