So after getting the money for totaling that comfortable Mazda6 three weeks ago and spending the most pain striking 10 hours in the Los Angeles Men's Central Jail, I am sitting on a bed looking at the most amazing lights in Vegas, wondering why I am being so damn reckless. Well, if anybody has ever read my articles then they would not ask that question. My answer is, "ni para impulso un paso para atras (not even for momentum a step back)." I know a communist quote, but so damn fitting. The truth is I am not being reckless, I have had a year that has being difficult, but I have found out a lot of things about myself and about the people I know. I have found that the quote from Jersey Boys is wrong. They don't leave, sometimes they simply give you space to find what you afre searching for, or perhaps find yourself. After my accident a few of my friends have not only helped me find information, but have also offered, at ther own time, at the same time giving me time to digest and ingest the whole situation and that has made me fell richer than any man lately.
Enough sad bullshit, the fact is that before we got to the show I was a bit upset because we had to rush to the theater and rushj to change because my friend, Jim, did not like the original suite the Rio had given us so he went down to complain and change it. So I was a bit upset at the whole situation, but by the short break of 8 minutes I was really enjoying the show. Jersey boy is the story of how the group began to when they where inducted into the Rock-n_Roll Hall of Fame. The emotions were great, the signing was sensational and the music was terrific. A few of the songs, I had no idea the Four Seasons sang, but all the talent pales in comparison to the story itself. It is about friendship, that life on the road is not all glamor, about owning up to what you have dug yourself into, "To walk like a man." Many learn from their mistakes and many keep perpetrating them with disregard to other's feelings, and in times of need, you discover who your real friends are, those that are there without malice to give you a hand without asking for it back. Sometimes lessons are hard, and must be learned.
The show was a great way to start three days in Las Vegas, reckless or not, mistake or not, winning or losing, that those not matter. All that matters is that I go back home, serene, clear-minded, rested and ready to start a new chapter in my life and daughter's life,, for the better of course. Going home with more money than I came with would not be so bad either!
