WHAT EVER YOU DO, DON'T TURN AROUND (read time :39)
Keep looking forward—looking back is a trap. Plus it’s not in your DNA. You’re an artist, an entrepreneur, looking back only gives you heartache. Why? Because your job is to look forward, into a NON-EXISTENT future—a future that we depend on YOU to create and manifest for us. A future filled with great songs, exceptional soundtracks, inspiring stories, moving speeches, phenomenal movies, encouraging books, award winning screenplays, unique sculpture, expressive paintings, breathtaking architecture, eye-popping websites and jaw dropping mobile apps. We’re certainly not depending on our leaders for that! We’re depending on YOU, the artist, designer, songwriter, scriptwriter, musician, author, director, producer, and courageous CEO. You chose the path of the lone creative warrior and it’s your responsibility to create, manifest and contribute your art & enterprise for the benefit of all of us! We’re counting on you, the crazy, creative genius, to lead us into the coming year. Do you accept the challenge?

| Accepted Definately |
Yes, most definately I accept your challenge. This, 2012, is my Gap Year at 53yrs old. Never had a "year off" always been making work happen. Just that, which is why now I am writing it down dyslexia or no dyslexia. Even just for me and for Alice 16now and for those who need to know it CAN HAPPEN. Yes I definately accept your challenge. I only hope I can do it justice. THKQ.

I even wrote a song about that in late Nov 11. At that time I realized fully the only way ahead is not to look back. I've seen people get stuck in the muck and never get out of it, in their minds.

So they ran, sweat dripping it's evidence as the branches scratched and knarled at their exposed and vulnerable skin. They ran, like they'd never run before, darkness decending, but alas they ran in the very winds of God.

| Don't quit! |
A friend and mentor needed some help with a garden project. While we worked on it together, we talked art. He was very successful. His last words to me were "Don't quit" He had a heart attack the next day and died. Thanks for the reminder, this is war!

| The artist's duty |
Woody Allen's newish movie Midnight in Paris has some amazing quotes about what being an artist is all about, it's a must see! Inspiratonal... "The artist's job is not to succumb to despair but to find an antidote for the emptiness of existence."

EYES WIDE OPEN IN A HAZE OF WONDER I LOOK FORWARD TRYING NOT TO LOOK BACK A NEW KIND OF FREEDOM WAITS FOR MY EMBRACE A couple lines from 'Freedom Wakes Me Up', a cut on my CD. I really have been getting pumped up and inspired by your wonderful tirades lately. I've been receiving them for months and only now are the content hitting me as if you wrote them for me. I guess the student is ready. Bless you my dear friend and mentor, J. Michael Dolan.

What a great reminder for the beginning of a new year NOT to look back at 2011, the successes OR the failures. I am challenged to create something new and innovative. I have heard about some artists, "all his stuff sounds the same." I never want anyone to say that about my work. Madonna kept re-inventing herself and I am going to do the same!

| Big fear |
Scares me to death to be responsibile to cater to everyone. Can't I just do my music 4 me? I guess I can't if I want to make a decent living at it.
