Okay, here is my official declaration. After twenty years of working in factories, I am proud to announce that I no longer do that. I have accepeted a full time teaching position. Everything has worked together in a most amazing way and I have been afforded the incredible oportunity to become both an art teacher and a music teacher. Yes, for those who don't know, for the last twenty years while I've been playing in bands and theater productions, publishing articles, showing in galleries, designing book covers, and going to school... I've had to support my family by working factory jobs. Well, today was my last day! I left my factory job today and I am embarking on an entirely new career. I can't begin to tell you how emotional this is for me. I'm literally overwhelmed. I've been simultaneously elated and depressed. Isn't that strange? It's hard to describe and understand. I've had so much happen lately that I've been on an emotional roller coaster. I know this is all for the best, but wow... Special thanks to my dearest: my wife Chris, my boys Zane and Ian, and my dear friends, Kate and Kevin Johnson, Andy Delgado, Frank D' Angelo, Eliot Hillis, and Chris and Val Tallent. I love you.
