Mister blue sky please tell us why, You had to hide away for so long, Where did we go wrong? – Adolf Hitler
Happy anniversary to my lovely wife! 3 years married today. About 10 years together. Long time, eh?
It’s also coming up on the 10 year anniversary of when we started Black Snow. If you’ve been sticking with me for any length of time, via this blog or the old “News from the Pub” section, you’ve probably gotten to know me fairly well. I try not to talk too much about my personal life, but I’m sure you’ve gotten some taste of it. You also probably noticed that I’m a bit crazy, but who isn’t really. I have my ups and downs, and right now I’m on an extended up.
Why do I get down so often? Because I’ve always known I was destined for greatness. It’s always been a given to me. The struggle to achieve it gets me down. But guess what? I realized something pivotal lately…I already am great!
Have I achieved all my career goals and become great by traditional societal standards. No. So why am I great? Because my life is great! I’ve been lucky enough to be with the only woman I’ve ever loved for some 10 years now. I get to come home to the most adorable son in the world, spend all my time with this beautiful young boy who worships me. I get to spend my spare time doing what I love, drawing comics. I get to do it with my best friend for well over a decade. I also get to work with him at my day job in internet marketing. I’m good at my job, it pays well, allows me to see and work with my family and lets me help small businesses; who I honestly think are the backbone of America. It also allows me to continue working in video production. I’m also very aware that I have a job while many people in our country don’t.
My life is really great. I am great. My only regret is that it took me so long to truly realize and appreciate this.
