It's the journey and how wonderful to be on earth at this time in history. To fulfill your dreams as an actor. To share your light with the world. Each precious moment lived fully is better than an endless string of unfilled years. I do believe there is more beyond and wish you well on your journey to wisdom


I'm praying for you mike

Life is indeed short for some people. It's not about illness or dying, it's about strength and willingness to fight.
