John Long at the Getty...
John is one man who can set the story straight.
His, yours, theirs, whoever, he will make dam sure you hear the words he is speaking or spelling out to you.
About a year ago he spoke some words to me that have been life changing.
How can the simple words formed in such a simple question be so complex, even after a year...
He asked me this question as I was packing up for a fun (?), uphill climbing experience in Sedona, Arizona:
'WHEN IS WHEN?'
'When is what?' I quickly asked right back.
'WHEN IS WHEN?' With no hesitation he asked again.
'For what?' I asked again.
He was just curious when the day was when I woke up and decided that living and rock climbing wasn't number one.
'WHEN IS WHEN TAM?'
'I don't think there is a when.' I quickly responded as I hurried him off the phone so I could get moving out of the house and hiking.
The rest of the day, and now for over a year, I have been thinking about that same dam question.
WHEN IS WHEN?
I just wish I knew the real answer.
