True Confessions

Originally published October 20, 2004

I have decided that I am one crazy mo-fo. The body doesn't work the way it once did, and a lot of that fact has to do with the crazy, mo-fo shit I did in my younger days. But there's very little of my past that I would swap for something else. I've enjoyed my life. I squeezed the juice out of it.

*I've made music with some famous people.

*I've been to bed with more wimmen than most men have.

*I've seen my writing published.

* I've been flat-assed broke.

* I've had a lot of money.

* I've owned more than I ever thought I would.

* I lost it all and I didn't die.

* I have known True Love. I also have known True Heartbreak.

* I trust very few people in this world, but the ones I DO trust, I trust deeply. I have never swallowed a more bitter pill than to have one of those people I trusted betray me.

* I like the mountains better than I do the beach.

* I don't want to live forever.

* I like guns. I once was an excellent marksman, but I'm not as good now as I once was. My eyesight has declined and I don't have the steady hands I once did. I can still shoot, but not like I could 25 years ago. Where did THAT boy go?

* I'm not done yet.

Dammit. I really miss that old cracker. I could never get around to taking "Gut Rumbles" off the list or deleting his email addy from the address book. It always seemed so damned final to do that.

I keep sticking my nose in here from time to time on the off chance that Rob had just been hiding out from the tax man, and was going to come back with a "BWAAHAAHAA, fooled you all, I've been in Costa Rica!!!".

Not going to happen of course, but human nature always hopes for the best.

Thanks to those who keep these archives alive, you also keep his memory fresh in many minds.

Being in a reflective mood, I think I will put John Prine's "Souvenirs" on the stereo.

He liked that song.
