    I overshot. Now I'm figuring out how to back-peddle.

    It's too late for me now.............

    I could have done more in music but was a coward and wouldn't "play the game".... I know guitarists personally who have made a name for themselves which I thought didn't play as well as I did but they made the plunge and took the chances it took to do better. I've been on the road a couple of times and totally hated it and spent most of my musical career of 22 years in the clubs of SoCal and going home to my own house every night and being there for my kids in the daytime... Looking back on it, I wish sometimes I'd been "out there" a little more but I'm happy with my life now probably more than I ever was.... The old club days were pretty cool, played a lot of music, go a lot of "poon" and I've never had to actually work for a living so I guess really "no regrets" after all...........JH in Va.

    Potential did come into being until three years after I was born.

    I fulfilled it, but it takes a longer than it used to.

    They tell me I have limitless potential, so probably not...

    And yes, I am disappointed in myself.

    If you aren't disappointed in yourself you never had the potential to begin with

    not here
    I am quietly pleased with my accomplishments, which are modest but important to me; for many years I was constantly told I was a useless, selfish, lazy, talentless waste of space by those who should have been most supportive.
    I do sometimes wonder what could have been with more encouragement and a better support system, but no use living in the past. I have learned to filter out the haters and have become my own support system, and I'm looking forward to what the next couple of years holds.
