    Hi everyone,
    for good or for bad (depending if you actually liked me or not) I've republished about two dozen hubs and am going to rebuild here at HP. I haven't spent much time writing elsewhere, but I've decided to use this site for writing about my music.

    Glad to see some familiar faces and friends around, and looking forward to getting to know many more of you.

    Best to all.

      Allow me to be the first to welcome you back into the fold!
      It's a grand time to be back on HP.
      Earnings are (for me, anyway) higher than ever.
      And the 2012 political season is in full swing -- so grab a partner and take a spin around the forums!
      Glad to have you back, Daniel.
      MM

        I swear, until I came to Hubpages, I never thought that any questions were stupid, but that one I have to admit is one of the dumbest questions ever asked of someone online. hmm I've changed my thoughts about stupid questions obviously.

          Yup. I used to be an idealist about humanity. I still believe there's good in most everyone. Although I think it takes a frickin' microscope to see in a lot of 'em. And then there's this thing about intelligence level in some....

          Okay, I'll stop now...lol

    I'm all smiles, my friends. Now nice to see you so quickly.

    There have been so many events and changes in my life the last month or so. A few tears and a few celebrations. My best friend is addicted to street drugs. I hope he can find himself and the wonderful life he deserves and seeks. It has taught me so very much about myself, and I realize in so many ways I'm no different than he is. We can be addicted to anything, really. However, one thing I'm most excited about is that a contact from NYC, a broadway music producer is flying in tomorrow for a side trip for a few days to hang with me and a friend. Hopefully it will be a great opportunity as well. We'll meet other contacts, and then he'll be on his way to LA for producing the next sound track for the next musical he's working on.

    As for politics....
          Um, well that's just another very bad religion. LOL
          And I hope all the hoes at the hoedown who will potentially continue to prostitute this country will dance into oblivion.

    I just think it's an overwhelming job for anyone to want to tackle, this US presidency. There is just so much power/money-mongering. It's insidious and almost impossible to not become a part of it, I believe. But it has to be brought down.

    But I'm celebrating and hosting a VIP, and going to enjoy the experience.

    Be well, everyone.
