Now the lines have all been read
And you knew them all by heart
Now you move toward the door
Here it comes, the hardest part

This day has been a long time coming. I have toyed with the idea of stopping so many times, only to talk myself out of it every single time.

I can’t allow that to continue, if for no other reason than my health. It is no secret that my life was impacted immeasurably by a car accident in July 2021 when I was violently rear-ended while stopped in traffic. The injuries I suffered in that accident have left me permanently unable to use my left arm and hand. It has left me unable to walk without the use of a cane, and even with one, it has taken a supreme effort to not topple over.

Two weeks ago, I announced I was taking a two-week break so I could immerse myself into March Madness. Basketball was far from the real reason I took time off. A little more than three weeks ago, I suffered a transient ischemic attack (TIA) caused by a brief blockage of blood flow to the brain. A TIA usually lasts only a few minutes and doesn’t cause long-term damage. However, a TIA may be a serious warning. About 1 in 3 people who have a TIA will eventually have a stroke, with about half occurring within a year after the TIA.

Needless to say, this latest development doesn’t give me much of a choice. I have to stop and I have to do it now. I would, given a choice, keep right on going, but I’m rather fond of living. I have said this many times before but it bears repeating today. There are literally over two thousand medleys in the archives so for you, the music doesn’t have to stop.

There are so many of you I want to thank but I know I will leave someone’s name off, so I’m going to trust that YOU know if you belong on the list.

I will never forget what you have done for me. The songs I have selected for this final medley are my way of saying goodbye.
God Bless You
