Every weekday for 745 weeks I’ve had the pleasure and privilege of sharing my thoughts from this great radio platform at KNX-1070.
During that time, my life changed dramatically. I started as an energetic middle-aged dad with three young daughters under five who filled my evenings with diapers, bottles and bedtime stories. Today, I’m a less energetic father of four teenaged daughters who fill my life with a tossed salad of joy, pride, angst, and drama.
Though I normally write and record my musings at my home office between midnight and 4:00 a.m., I feel a real and intimate bond with those of you who allow me to be your companion.
I know that my parables, poems and personal opinions irritate and infuriate some and inspire and enlighten others. I’ve been called naïve, self-righteous, too liberal, too conservative, a religious zealot, and an atheist. Fortunately, I get nice letters too and they always lift my spirits and encourage me to continue.
But all good things come to an end.
As I say good-bye to my Southern California listeners I’m mindful of the advice of Dr. Seuss: “Don’t cry because it’s over; smile because it happened.”
I am sincerely grateful to KNX for providing me with the opportunity to be a part of your life for so many years and I thank you for giving my life greater depth and meaning.
