"A man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved friends. In a position of utter desolation, when men cannot fully express himself in positive action, when his only achievement may consist in enduring his sufferings in the right way—an honorable way—in such a position man can, through thoughtful communication with his newfound friends, achieve fulfillment."
—Viktor E. Frankl

First, please allow me to express a salutation of good health and well-being, for a discourse into any subject without the expression of caring and sharing has no profound basis. So I honestly hope that this letter will find you to be in the very best of health and utmost of inner wealth. And, most of all, may the divinity of God's love always be with you in this ever-changing, uncertain world.
Well, as for myself, tomorrow is not known to me, but today I live, and I give thanks to God for the breath of life, the ability to function, and the opportunity to present to you this blogging letter.
Secondly, I will ask that you allow me a moment to introduce myself and, much more, my reason for blogging this letter.
My name is Larry "The Litigator Specialist" Rush, and I'm a 53-year-old African/Native American (my grandmother—on my mother's side—was a full-blooded Cherokee). An individualist, critical, analytical, organic-intellectual. A writer (at present, I'm working on my first book—The Comprehensive Thoughts of Love), poet, essayist (will be blogging many pieces of my work), thinker (Dr. MLK said, "Man refuse to think."), visionary, philosopher ("If you think the same, you'll function the same."), artist (can paint and draw almost anything and do portraits, which you will get to see on this blog), avid chess player (I'm a member of the United States Chess Foundation and do play corresponding chess), and criminal litigator specialist who possesses a self-taught critical acumen, which I employ in the struggle for freedom myself and other unjustly incarcerated prisoners. I am honest, caring, and understanding. I can appreciate all music, but my love is R&B (especially the '70s, the music I was raised on). I was never married, and (sadly) I have no offspring. I'm blogging not only to establish a sincere friendship with anyone who is willing to give me that opportunity, but also to share with the world the artistry and creativity of my mind.
Remember: don't be the jug and cold water that pours upon yourself; smell the flowers, take in some sun, dance with the wind, and live—life!
I am Larry.
