Today is Jon’s birthday.
In the internet world, we constantly edit what we want everyone to see of our lives. It is a blessing and a curse. I edit even this very sentence I’m typing because I know you – whoever you are – will read it and make a judgment of it.
I just want to be fair to all of you fine folks that follow me and share that life is just as tough as it is beautiful. Jon taught me so much about all these things. I thanked him a good deal when he was alive and I’ll be thanking him for the rest of the time I’m alive for what he gave me.
If you want to honor Jon today :
– Listen to a record and read all the credits and really think about the album art.
– Eat something good and if possible, a good old-fashioned hamburger.
– Find your nearest skuzzy dive bar and patronize the hell out of it. Play pool if available. Play jukebox, no questions asked.
– Inspire another person to believe in themselves.
Tomorrow, I’ll be posting a blog about Jon & grief & living. Come back and see me.
