On January 9, 2013, my dream was to meet President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.
On February 9, 2013, I met the Veep and spoke in front of him. He remains awesome.
On Jan 9, 2015, my birthday wish was still to meet President George W. Bush and shake his hand.
On May 12, 2015, that dream came true as well.
On January 9, 2016, I am at peace. I have nothing left to wish for myself. There are things I want, but I have to earn those things. That means hard work personally and professionally.
I spent the night of the 8th with friends as the clock struck midnight.
On the 9th I spoke at a Victory Elephant Breakfast in Los Angeles.
Then I drove to San Jose and spoke to a fun group called Jewish Geeks of the Peninsula. Then that night I drove to Oakland.
On the morning of the 10th I spoke at Temple Beth Abraham in Oakland. Then came the long drive back to Los Angeles.
Both trips were bearable because of NFL playoff games on the radio.
Friends. Politics. Judaism. Football.
I am as blessed as it gets and a happy 44.
May you all find what you love, do what you love, and be happy and blessed.
May God bless you all.
To every person who wished me a happy birthday, thank you so very much.
With much love and appreciation,
