I wrote this morning to Paul Epstein, owner of Twist & Shout in Denver. He’s been sending out wonderful emails.
It feels better to admit to being scared.
It’s really great to get these emails from you. I feel like we’re back on Pearl St.
I miss John. I love Dylan, but I don’t feel close to him. John felt close, like he was right there with me. John sang songs about my life – abusive dad, alcoholism, crazy women and strange happenings. I’m listening to his music now.
It’s really scary for us. Our business has taken a huge hit. We’ve applied for the PPP, but it won’t be enough. We’ve also applied for the EIDL. Our mortgage lender has offered to defer payments, but then we owe a balloon payment in 6 months. What we need, is our mortgage payments to be forgiven for 6 months.
Some of this is our fault. I didn’t save enough or invest wisely. Rats. I’ll teach our son to not make the same mistakes Dad did.
We’re not exactly spring chickens – I’m 60 my wife is 57. But our love is strong. Starting over at this point in life won’t be easy. But if those are the cards were dealt we’ll rally, begin the dream again.
I hope you keep the emails going. I dig ‘em, they’re meaningful.
peace and love,
