An old man ...Hang on ,scratch that . A young ,intelligent handsome man ran/hobbled along a lonely bicycle path (in the wrong direction) as a glazed secretion flowed from his nose and mouth . As he pondered the condition his condition was in ,he struck up a conversation with the shadow of his current self . The conversation centered around ....me of course DUH . He discussed his conviction and whether or not being convicted and spending most of his adult life in jail meant he had strong conviction . Hmm ! He said to himself .....self . No matter what condition my condition is in ,I will never surrender to external or internal forces such as colds , wonky ankles or some evil conscience telling me I can't do this or can't do that . I will succeed(in grand style) ! I may be slowed ,knocked down but never .never stopped . Bring it on ! The moral of this story is ,whatever your condition , go with it . We are all dated ,therefore there's no reason to not chase your dreams (Steve Jobs) Mind over matter ...If you don't mind ,it doesn't matter ! (Wendell the 1st )

    Ha ha ha... awesome. You're hardly an old man so I'm glad you changed that around pretty quick! And yes, bring it on!

    Hey ,I just threw the old man thing in there for cause and effect .In my world , age(as in growing old) is irrelevant .In the context of what we think, Its nothing more than an accumulation of time ,,something we all have in common . Its not something we should fear . My goal is to accumulate a lot of time ...quality time .
