Pat blogged...as usual it was filled with truth. i think he needs a little time with his wife and babies to regroup. maybe he's just feeling his mortality. i hate it when that creeps into our lives. suppose it's necessary though.keeps us aware so we don't just waste our lives away. made me feel a little sad and a little hopeful at the same time. i hope he knows how much we are thankful to him for sharing his wonderful voice and words with us. and yeah, it's probably that artist thing, always doubting, always trying to hit that "best" creation. truth is, i think it is what keeps artists going. if you feel you've achieved your best, you'd probably stop creating.
