Not Dead. . .


. . . Just busy....very busy....that kind of busy where you don't have time to sleep...or spend time with your kids and wife...and she begins to resent you for it, even though you're just tryin to keep food on the table and clothes on their backs. . . . .and you miss em like crazy. so much so, that you sacrifice even more sleep just so you can look at them alittle longer....and all your daily struggles just pile on along with mistakes from the past that come back to haunt you in the present. . . .and then the pressures from every direction start to affect your ability to do the things that are keeping you busy in the first place. . . .making it all in vain. . . .

you know.....that kind of busy.

Anyway, this is somethin' i did awhile ago....thought i'd throw it up.

Hey John,
