Chance to say THANK YOU

The day is winding down and I am now in the planning mode. I must have different tabs on my blog. Growth in the blog necessitates that I separate the topics of my writings. There will be a tab on for Downtown and Skid Row News and Gossip. Gossip is big on Skid Row. I have not as yet figured out the accuracy rate yet but gossip is big business in Skid Row. If I had a dollar for every bit of gossip I heard in the last 8 months, I would be able to live comfortably for 6 months.

It is time to have a separate tab for my daily diary of emotions and reflections. Readers are growing. Some will only want to hear about Downtown and Skid Row issues. I do not want to run off readers if they have no stomach to read the daily challenges of one who has found himself on Skid Row. It is therapeutic for me and helpful in other areas. Therefore I will create a separate tab for it. Therefore, everybody will be satisfied. No one has to read what they do not wish to read.

The webcam is a few blogs under this. Until the engineer fixes the glitches that is where it will be. Soon it will be on the top right portion of the blog home page where the profile is. You will not have to labor to see. it.

I must do this quickly because Don and I have something pretty special planned for the people who are interested in downtown. I would love to tell you but I promised to keep the secret. I do not like keeping secrets like this but in the interest of insuring success, I shall do so.

I want to thank everyone for their support. It has been a very rough time but a time that has been exciting in many ways. I have met some very good people, very positive and supportive people. It took me to come to Skid Row to meet them. Each and everyone that I have met I include in that group. Thanks more than you know.

I thought of this special "thing" before I came to downtown Los Angeles. I thought about it years ago when I had waltermelton.com. It did not take shape then. The variables are such where it is taking shape now. I look forward to it.

(Dam, I just thought of another Idea. I have to find a way to get my real estate broker's license renewed) I just figured out something. Magnificent. I think it will work. I just hope they do not deny me the license. Wish me luck. If they don't, I just figured out my marketing plan. Life can be pretty exciting you know.

This does not mean that I will not have down moments. but all of these things are providing some momentum. I am reducing my drag coefficients every day. Sometimes in greater clips than others. However, things are happening.

My heart bleeds sometimes but it sings with joy at the possibilities. I love feeling this way again. I just have to have more days feeling positive than negative. I am working on it. Each bit of encouragement increases my faith.

I must get out of the computer room at the Transition House. It is closing down. I am glad I had the opportunity to thank those I know and those I have not seen and those I do not know but who read my writings. Thanks for helping me build a new life.

"My heart bleeds sometimes but it sings with joy at the possibilities."

That's a very good way to put it. Sometimes, you can't really feel life without taking a chance. One of my fav authors: "And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin

And Walter, you day has come too. Keep up with the good work!
