There was a divide in the path at my 50th birthday. I’m thinking, “I have to go out on a high note because I’m this rocker dude.” As an artist, I face challenges in my work. I have to fight; I have to fight. Maybe the elevator needs to descend further, or maybe I need to fall farther. I still have more research to do. I have to demonstrate to my supporters that they are the most important thing in my life. I neglected to consider the other division: my family.
