It's been disastrous for me, weight-wise. This time last year I was at 205. Now I'm at 235. This time last year, I had lost over 100 pounds and was hoping to get below 200 for the first time in many, many years. So what happened?
I seem to be in thar movie The Wiz.
Now, I'm surrounded by the crows who are mocking me, saying I can't win, I'll end up gaining all my weight back.
And they want me to sing their anthem.
But I can't let them win, and I won't, with the help of all of you.
It's time to get back on the yellow brick road!
And make THIS my theme song!
And with your help, I can make this a brand new day.
And be able to celebrate like this:
So how about it? Will you all be on the yellow brick road with me?
It won't be easy, but we can lick this thing.
And together, we can make it to the Emerald City!

This is in memory of a brother that departed some weeks ago, and only now am I realizing how much I loved him.
And the strange thing is, he wasn't that nice when he was alive, he was downright abusive at times, to all of us.
So why is there such a big hole in my heart when he's gone?
Why am I so broken up?
It's only because I really did love him,
And I miss him so badly.
Nobody should die like he did, all alone.
And nobody finding him until days later, even if he did push everybody away months before he passed.
Sort of like that song by Paul Simon, "I am a Rock"
Nobody should die like that!
Who knows what inner demons he faced?
And all I can do is cry.
I miss you, Ralph!
I keep thinking I'll get over it, but then it hits me again and I have to cry again, like this song by Poco:
It's this crazy love that won't let go.
I feel so alone.
