Hope these gas prices aren't driving everybody insane. How has everybody been doing? Well me, I have been grinding ahead; trying to get this autobiography finished up, along with the movie script. Black Scarface is being edited. The video game is coming along too. As you can see, I keep a full plate. Can't stop, won't stop. Well, I have been fortunate for the past two weeks; we have been having early lockdowns. So it's kind of bad I can't stay on the computer as late, but the good news I have been able to read. And being able to do that has been really exciting. One of my pupils that I have been mentoring has been reading The Richest Man in Babylon. So when I asked about the story, some questions that I want to know about couldn't be answered. I almost know the book by heart but not quite. And as you might know, every time you read it, there will be something you miss. And it's amazing to me how everybody thinks I am so lucky. But nobody will look at the hardships I have been through or the sacrifices I have been making. I haven't watched tv in over two years, nor have I listen to the radio. My time is spent emailing, writing letters, reading books, or discussing our business plan among our think-tank. So out of reading the book, this time I ran across something I would love to share with everybody.
"Fortunate only in that I had the desire to prosper before I first met him. For four years did I not prove my definiteness of purpose by keeping one-tenth of all I earned? Would you call a fisherman lucky who for year so studied the habits of the fish that with each changing wind he could cast his nets about them? Opportunity is a haughty goddess who wastes no time with those who are unprepared. "
