To each his own. To me my own.

Literary, literally

I was browsing through bookmarks yesterday and was surprised to find my ‘Letter to my Sixteen-Year-Old Self’ was still on the front page of the Simon and Schuster site. I realize this is because nothing else has been posted since they posted mine, but gotta admit – I still like seeing it…

Me: so uh, I’ve been wondering… could I act all crazy like some Hollywood dude is doing right now and get my writing noticed?

Voice of reality: *clearing throat* uhhh, no Bon – see, you have to be famous beforehand for that to work.

For sheer sheen entertainment purposes, I thought I’d share a copy of Charlie’s most recent tweet. I’ll have to say I’ve been enjoying the literary stance he’s taking…

Happy Friday, everyone!! 🙂

    I won’t use names here, but this person/actor has lost this freakin’ mind! WTH is he thinking??!! If I were his dad, I would kidnap him and take him to an island where he couldn’t get off and keep him there under lock and key until he was clean. Then I would keep him there alittle longer in hopes he would see how blessed he is and take stock of everything he has to lose. I know kidnapping is against the law, but I would rather go to jail than to bury my son. As parents, we are duty bound to take care of our children no matter their age. Just because their age makes them an adult doesn’t mean they are mature enough to wear that title. I just couldn’t watch my child slowly kill them selves without springing into action and doing WHATEVER it took to save them! I’m praying for him and his family to get through this with no lives lost. God knows they need all the prayers they can get. My heart goes out to his dad because this must be tearing him apart. God Bless them

      Yes Helen – the way I see it, it could be a combination of things. A very cleverly calculated mirage to benefit his career, a mental or chemical imbalance, an absolute drug addiction, or a combination of all. One thing’s for sure, he’s passing drug test after drug test, for the soft and hard stuff. The guy is now 45 years old. There comes a time in a kids life (his started a while back now) when the parents no longer have any control, however strong the need may be. I know it’s gotta be mega-hard for Martin, Emilio and family… and I too pray for strength for them all. As for Charlie… he has all the attention and more that he’s so desired for so very long now. All I can say is, hope he ends up using it for good in the end. Only God knows what’s up his sleeve at the given moment.

      Thank you, dear Carol Ann. It had been a while since I’d reflected back on it myself. Blessings to you, my friend…
