Brother I appreciate your experience and your feedback. I can’t judge your decisions because I have not lived your life. But I can tell you I wish you didn’t feel like it was time to let go. You are but one man but you are important to the energy and the ethos of the future- even if it seems that nobody is listening. You know this very well having lived through the 60s, but history teaches us it does not take a lot of people, it just takes enough of the right people. With a bit of luck and good timing we’ll move the race forward before our game is up. Godspeed, blood. I hope you find a reason to stay. It ain’t over yet.
