Thanks for following. It has been a crazy and fun ride and I appreciate all the support.
True, I didn’t get the response needed to keep the vlog going, but that just means I need to be doing something else. And that is what I am already doing. I have some very important projects I need to focus on, and I see this as the call to follow through with that vocation.
I’ve also come to the conclusion that it’s time to hang up the public life hat. You have to remember that I’ve been doing something in the public eye, one way or another, since infancy. I’m 43. That’s a long time to be doing something.
Except for a few years here and there, I’ve had the privilege of getting to be before the camera, behind the camera, on television, on stage, in front of small intimate audiences of about 100 to upwards of 50,000 at one time. I’ve done work in my field that’s been seen in most of the Western world and parts of Asia. I’ve won awards for my work in typographical design, and have had fun making people laugh with my peculiar sense of humor. I’ve done everything in this field I ever wanted to. I’ve truly been blessed to see my dreams come true.
It’s time for me to really live the quiet life, out of the public eye. Despite the pressures caused by my disease, I’m no longer comfortable in this type of work. No, I won’t stop my work of doing my part to make this world a little better; it’s just that I won’t be looking to do this with a spotlight overhead. I’m not looking to be noticed. I’ve had a limelight on me long enough.
Thanks for the lift so many of you have given me. I know I’m not alone in my battles. My prayers are also always with you.
And please, for those of you who are hoping for another return of mine, stop before you do. There will be someone else out there that needs your assistance to keep the torch up. Please help them instead. As I mentioned before, I’m called to do something else and the best thing you can do for me is allow me the space I need to pursue it.
So now go and do wonderful things. Settle for nothing than doing your best. Don’t be good at what you do, be great at it.
Signing off, with gratitude and great peace and happiness.
