My Phoenix College "club"?? Met Mark Carlson and years later reconnected through radio. Me at KEZ Radio and he as an astute writer for AP. I came across the name Mark Carlson many times while in the news room and often wondered if he was THE Mark Carlson. Turns out. It was, he is....and to this day he makes me feel important.
Yes, A small world. This started out as me being excited that I see my clubs intertwining with other clubs. But it turns out there's so much more to this.
Food For Thought and I am certain I won't be able to word it exactly as it is shouting in my head but I hope you understand where I'm coming from.
On Facebook we have friend requests, we can block people for whatever reason(s), we can follow, unfollow, we can post, like, love, laugh and poke. We can be connected to people all over the world. Why can't we just get along in the real world?If on Facebook we can have so many different clubs, pages, friends that get along happily, why can't we do that in the real world?
**My first guitar teacher was an old, old grouchy man that smelled of campho phenique. Hmm, I don’t remember anything else about him.

SO.....sometimes you win and sometimes you learn.....and sometimes someone else's life is a reason for you to grow.

Cari and I had a friendship from years gone by. Friends from when we were wee kids. Friends from before we celebrated six years of life. As adults we led different lives. My heart never grew out of love with her. Yes, we knew each other from simpler times, but our friendship never changed. As her husband told me, the love Cari had for me was so deep in her heart. It is mutual. My heart is hurting because my love for her was deep. Everytime I think this, I shed tears.

December 9, 2014 Perry is now with his beloved mom.
Perry’s passion was radio…and kids…combine the two and you have Kidstar Radio. He had a vision to build the self-esteem of kids and give them a direction for which they can grow & be proud. He put real working radio stations in schools that was run by kids. Who didn’t want to have that kind of experience? Perry was a broadcaster, a DJ with very kind heart, a personality that everyone loved. Bringing his love of people to the airwaves. He wanted to share his love.
My heart is broken. Truly broken. I’m so unbelievably sad. I knew the day was near, I thought I would at least get to see him one more day. That was my plan. He was in hospice located in the same parking lot with the doctor I work for in Scottsdale… the same parking lot! It was perfect - if you can call it that. Actually perfect would've been Perry being cured, but God had plans.
Children of God that's all we are, Children of God we want to be...soon we'll be old and all alone
Waiting for God to rest our soul.
