Good Morning Mom,
Good to see ya, it’s been a long time.
I love to travel. Travel enlightens, entertains, and energizes me. The three E’s of good things that can happen to a body. I have no idea where I will go next, but when I do you will be the first to know, probably LA or Texas.
Last night was my 4th appearance at Hot Potato Comedy night at "rain dogs”, and my first night trying out my new WWLD style - What Would Lenny (Bruce) Do. It went OK, but there's always room for improvement. Like I think I said on stage, this is my therapy; it gives me a reason to get up in the morning. I have no desire to become a stand-up comedian, but I wouldn’t mind playing one on TV, if the pay was good, and they had a comprehensive and affordable insurance plan.
I would like to thank Chris Buck and all the other comics for allowing me the chance to share their stage, I hope you never have an idea of what it feels like to be me. The me that has parkinson’s. The me that is just on a low price tour of this Universe. The me that can only tell what planet he’s on by what day it is. But again, maybe it wouldn’t be bad for you, for everybody, to have an idea, but only that... an idea. A homeopathic glimpse.
That’s Country Music Legend George Jones over there... for some strange reason I was thinking about him while I cooked Kathleen’s oatmeal this morning. I used a snippet of lyrics from one of his songs in my greeting to my Mom up top. Kinda weird, but taken out of context it works.
----Tomorrow - What is Kathleen’s oatmeal and how and why do I make it.
--- still working on podcast version please bear with me.

just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
