"Sitting at my desk, I’m alone with thoughts. Pondering how did I get to this point in my sometimes still young life of forty-five years. Too bad my physical doesn’t always agree with that youthful outlook though, because there are moments when I’m in “The Wizard Of Oz”, Tin Man mode. Mentally my mind wanders from one task to another, from one idea to another notion, never at rest or ease. That constant wandering of the mind can be sometimes daunting, always exhausting. I’ve been this way for as long as a brother can recall, so it’s a fact of life for me. Maybe I can use that excess energy exerted from a mental capacity and utilize it in another form or fashion. Being a thinker AND creative at the same time can be a gift and a curse. A gift because the two areas can become one; a curse because one can overwhelm the other. Either way, it’s apparent that a change in my mundane, stagnant life is needed."
