WHO I AM - The Story - This song is a very intimate look at my personal journey, and how I came to be who I am. Ive often reflected on the fact that who I am is ever changing; we are all a work in progress. Ive made mistakes, lots of them. Ive reached for the brass ring, Ive grabbed it a couple of times, and Ive dropped it just as many. Ive had my heart broken, my trust betrayed and my words twisted. Ive been judged, condemned and redeemed. Ive known love and hate; Ive sought and shared forgiveness and mercy. Ive wallowed in the pits of despair, and Ive soared on wings and touched the face of God. I boastfully proclaimed this song was all about me, until a friend of mine heard it; she cried and then said that I had written a song all about HER life! I guess that proves were really not as different as we like to think we are!
WHO I AM - Wasted too much time trying to figure it out, Complicated up the truth with doubt, Should have listened to my inner voice, Said I never really had a choice - I heard what they all had to say, but I never felt the same, I couldnt share my point of view, in fear of what Id lose, I questioned and I reasoned why, no place to run, no place to hide (CHORUS) And I traveled down this beaten path, Too scared to look, too lost to ask, And I did my best for being just a man, Well (no) Im not the first, I wont be the last, To make my way and not turn back, On this journey only few can understand, Down this long and winding roadto who I am. (v2) So many years in search of truth, through the pain I missed the proof, In hindsight I can clearly see, the way it was supposed to be, Broken hearts and sleepless nights, wasnt what I had in mind, But I knew deep down in time, all the wrongs would turn out right (CHORUS) (BRIDGE) Some disguised as friends, but really demons, Armed with their smiles and hidden reasons, Through all the trials and all the treasons, I heard wisdom from my past, Saying hold on, this too shall pass.. (CHORUS) No Im not the first, I wont be the last, To make my way and not turn back, On this journey only few can understand, Down this long and winding road down this long and winding road To who I am. To who I am Its who I am (c) 2006 Song Harbor Music/BMI

So it's been a while since I've updated you as to what's happening. Let'd just say it's probaby because I don't like to revisit pain! lol Hurricane Irma smacked us hard, it was a slow recovery, but things seems to be back for the most part. In October 2017 our condo was burgalarized - they ransacked the place and the jerks kicked my Maxx... yes, a 16yo docile happy sweet dog, quite frankly he never was the same after that. We moved to our new location at Treviso Bay here in Naples right before Thanksgiving, very secure and quite pretty. As there is no rest for the weary on November 26, 2017 we lost Tim's 16yo cat Eppie, it was a tragic day for us - then my Mom ended up hospitalized a week before Christmas and was moved to a rehab center on Christmas Eve. 2018 came in like a thud, as we were tired and battle weary to say the least as we were informed my Mom had to enter an assisted living facility where she celebrated her 80th birthday on February 12th. Thinking we would start recovery, on March 4th, out of no where Tim's Aunt Andi in California suddenly passed of breast cancer, we didn't know she had it, she had kept it a secret... with our heads still reeling from that tragedy, on March 10th my beloved buddy and best friend Maxx crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Our hearts are aching from so many incidents so close together..... so you see... this is why I haven't updated.
There is some good things to report, but I'll update you on those in April, unless a comet takes us all out.
