JANUARY 1ST, 2010

I have decided to create a web journal beginning today as one of my New Year resolutions. I realized over the last many months as I have been working feverishly to finish my book and get it published, that I have more or less lost most of my mind. It has been a common complaint by those closest to me that I have either become completely mentally distracted or that I am developing early Alzheimer’s. I insist that it is the distraction of finishing the book however, unless I straighten out and start paying more attention to this reality, I may have a few difficulties I was not prepared for. Thankfully for everyone including myself I have finished my book and it will be published this month. The title is Naked at the Mic / The Survival of a Liberal in a Time of Peril. My readers can hear an audio version of the first four chapters on BlogTalkRadio/lasteelshoworg or just press Listen Live!at the top of the page and check out the programs in the recent archives.

As committed as I am today to a daily web journal posting , I may on occasion miss a day here and there. Now that my 351 page book is completed I have a great idea for another book but will not begin it for another month or so, and my attentions until then will be to continue as I am in all areas of my writing, radio and television productions. I have realized that concentrated focus on one thing for too long is a form of madness. I am cured of my temporary madness and am now reentering polite society as a former reclusive eccentric writer. I am now committed to intellectual abstinence for the next several months to resurrect my personal life and enjoy myself and others for a while. I started off the new year last night with a few friends and a few drinks of Jack Daniels. It was good to be reacquainted with everyone for New Years Eve, especially my old friend Jack.

Oddly, I woke up this morning without a hangover and feeling quite awake and well. I had a healthy breakfast and a few cups of coffee. As of this writing I am having a very sane day with no complaints from neighbors or friends and friendly greetings and cheery conversations from loved ones. I believe I am back on track and just wanted to announce that fact to the world. Today I wish everyone in the world a Happy New Year, and tomorrow I’ll continue my web journal, and talk about the most current events or whatever else is on my mind tomorrow. Thanks for reading this and keep in touch. As a recovering workaholic I wish everyone well and a warning . No matter what you are into or how intense it may be, remember those who you love and who love you. God gave them to you for a reason.
