Setting Myself Free

I promised my friend Dr. Renee Mudrey that I would finish my life story. There was some persuasion involved. I believe her exact words were: “…Todd, you need to get your Capricorn ass busy and finish that life story”. At least that’s how I’m choosing to remember it. In any event, my goal is by the end of 2020. There. I’ve said it. In the meantime, I thought I would give you this little poem. More to come, so stay tuned!

Like a distant memory
Yearning for a place to dwell
Or an ancient legacy
Lost inside a wishing well

Even without guarantee
Fire and flood and wind and rain
Life’s a big calliope
Sometimes beer, then pink champaign!

Surge and glow for all to see
Not one minute does it take
“Be yourself” will set you free
On your journey, wide awake!
