Hi everybody. I have been totally off the radar screen for many weeks now and starting to re-enter slowly the real world. Over the last three weeks or so as I've had strength and focus I've been working on the web site I'm bringing to you now. It's partly a web site and partly a Blog I suppose and it has absolutely nothing to do with photographs or slide shows which you'll rapidly discover if you decide to come in. Of course I couldn't pass up some photos promoting my wife, kids, grandkids and dogs! This is intensely personal to my life and for a variety of reasons I decided it was important to create it. It also is important to me to share it with you as many of you from around the world have become friends of mine. I truly value those friendships, I've valued getting to know you a little and I've valued sharing projects and ideas. So now I'm sharing with you where I find myself in my life.

I've left you a message, but I wanted to repeat it here: Your life is precious.

Bart you've been an inspiration to many with your shows (and now your illness) and helpful to many more with Proshow problems and questions. Your web site sort of helps put life into perspective - we all have issues we are dealing with in one way or another. The trick is to not let those issues overwhelm us (like when you wake up at 3 in the morning thinking about whatever the current (real or imagined crisis is)
). You are a great example of not letting it totally flatten you and staying in the game. I know it helps me put things in a bit of different perspective - thanks for the inspiration! I will be visiting your pages and sending you humor since I know your sense of humor is almost as wacky as mine

Thanks for your kind words. I truly appreciate the "atta boys", things like that truly help when dealing with tough times. I have to tell you that this did flatten me. When the doctor in so many words said go home and die I was mentally flat on the floor for about two weeks. Then in the middle of the night it occurred to me that what he had really said was he didn't know what to do and I realized that did not mean that I had to continue to lay down and that I could get back on my feet and fight this thing. So I was lucky enough to stand back up.
As to imagined crisis I've always been of the opinion if as you're thinking about it ask yourself the question if you are even going to remember it in six weeks. Kind of keeps things in perspective! And keep the humor coming! Love it!

Bart...I love your place!
And...I just have to share...you are a true Phoenix
in my eyes!

Glad you liked "my place!" If a Phoenix looks like a beat up old guy, then I definitely am a Phoenix!! lol

I'm pulling for you, and it sounds like you have the will to prove the doctors wrong. As Barbara said, you life is precious to all of us here on the Forum family.
The quote you shared on your web site from Pat Clark is good reading for all of us.
