I have been part of this wonderful place for over 6 years. I have some great friends I have met through here.

For the past 7 months I have spent an awful lot of time staying with my Aunt who is dying from cancer. Needless to say I have my good and bad days. As most of you know I'm Bi-Polar 1 and I can go from happy to sad within minutes. Watching someone I love slowly die is taking it's toll on my emotions.

I have posted an awful lot over the past 7 months, numerous times daily. It's not the good old post like I used to make, telling stories and such. Sometimes I get offensive and sarcastic when there is no need to. I kind of feel that I have become more of a pest than a friend as of late. Like maybe it would be nice for folks to look and not see "OldDirtRoad" comments posted all over the place.

This has nothing to do with Dean being banned again, he deserved it and i'm sure he knows it. I feel sorry for him because like me, I feel he sometimes says and does things without thinking. I do wish he could get better, because I really feel and care for people...a lot of you folks.

It does have to do with giving others a chance for a good time without my big mouth comments being plastered everywhere.

I was going to ask that my account be deleted, then I realized that I would lose contact with some people I really cherish talking to. I can still PM them and stay in touch. Lord knows there is some of you that are part of my life.

I'm not looking for attention, there is other ways to do that. I just wanted to say i'm sorry for becoming more of a non-stop posting mental case as opposed to being a good poster and friend. Posting here is like an addiction to me, I come here whether I have anything good to say or not.


So i'm going to force myself to TRY and take a break and let this community go on without "The world according to Dirt" being thrown in everyones faces everyday.

There are some of you I have pushed away with my actions as of late. who am I to judge and correct others like i'm the "man" around here.

So i'm not saying good bye, i'm saying I apologize for being here to much and for making a nuisance out of myself.

I also want to say "Thanks" to the folks who helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel when I could not see it anymore. I live in fear of those days coming back.


No need for replies, just please understand how I feel and except the fact the I realize it.

You are doing the right thing. When an internet life becomes too large, it is time to step back. This place, while full of great people, is NOT real life. The shows are. The people are if you ever meet them. It is a great web site, and it is also one full of ego, angst, personality bs, and strangeness. It is only recently I have realized, one, yes ONE, ABB show a year is just fine, and whatever anyone thinks, says, does, or insinuates on this site has ZERO relevance to real life. What is real: the blues...... real music..... real friends..... real activities.... and getting tangible stuff done in real life, not how many dumb shows one can collect.... hell, I'm giving them away....... Fillmore East is real, the rest is fluff.....

Hey Kenny, take care of yourself my friend. I always read your posts when I get on here, regardless of the thread because I know i will enjoy what you have to say. Will not be the same without you, you know how to reach me.

Kenny, for what it's worth...

You have a good heart and I know it's in the right place. Just looking over the numbers, I have TWICE as many posts as you in two years less time on this website. If anyone needs to back away, it would be me! Myself, I don't read every one of your posts, so I don't feel bombarded. Take a break, if you must, but don't stay gone long, OK?

See you at the shows at Chastain, right?

Kenny, take all the time you need to get your head straight. The board will be right here for you whenever you need us. My prayers go out to you and your aunt in this difficult time.

Don't get too down on yourself. We all can post or say things that we regret from time to time. I have had to keep myself in check over at the WP many times. Being here for six years, you obviously are a valued member, so take a break if you want and come back when you're feeling better.

Peace!

Be well, my friend, and I hope to see you this weekend.

Kenny

You do what you have to and as always I fully respect that. But don't do it because you feel that you bother any of us. You are still one of the reason that I visit this site and would prefer to see millions of your posts as compared to all the troll posters.

I can only speak for myself but I am sure others feel the same. Don't go away for too long. You take care and send me one of those PMs.
