Gee, it’s been a year already??
On January 1, 2012 I published my first post. A home for the stories of My personal Renaissance, my life post-retirement, and my adventures in media. It has been an incredible journey, and I’ve written about it often here.
For the last post of 2012, I present:
Glory to God
At this time, want to say a big Thank You Jesus for All of the Blessings I received this year! This has been the one of the best years of my life so far, and I’m very, very, very THANKFUL. Especially thankful for getting me through the last quarter of this year, where it seemed like I faced the most difficult period. Many, many obstacles and issues popped up, but I refuse(d) to let the gremlins win!
And… I want another year like this! Or, as the Henny Youngman joke goes:
A woman and her grandson were walking along the seashore when a giant wave sweeps the little boy away. She begins wailing and crying, “Lord, Lord, please save my grandson! Please return him to me!” A few minutes later another huge wave crashes on the shore, and there at her feet lies her grandson, coughing up water, gasping for air, scared, but alive. The grandmother looks up at the heavens and shouts “He had a hat!
Yep, a greedy little bastard am I !
“Dear Lord, I sure would like a Maybach, and if you can throw in a chauffeur also, that would be awesome!”
Thanks to My Wife
A Big Shout Out to my wife for her support. Couldn’t have much fun without it!!!! Hope to make her proud in 2013!
Speaking of 2013…
I consider almost everything I’ve done this year as “preparation.” Absolutely nothing’s been wasted in terms of lessons, travel, books, and writing and voiceover tools purchased. Obviously taking classes qualifies it, but all of the other Writing and Voiceover tasks I have done (and continue to do right after this post) have set the stage for results next year. Among the many things in my head I want to:
- Publish my first article
- Book my first voiceover job
- See the newly discovered comet
- Watch Season 3 of Game of Thrones
- Attend the Atlanta Film Festival (gift from wife)
Already told you about my writing plans. There’s a big voiceover event in March here in Atlanta that I’ll be a part of – really looking forward to that. Let’s see… what else… oh yea, continue chronicling My Personal Renaissance, right here.
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND GOD BLESS!!
