Figured I should give an update on my recovery for those whom may concern, forgive me for the excessive length of this post. Honestly for having nearly died only a month ago I probably have never felt better in my life. I can’t even begin to express how grateful I am to still be here, thank you all so much for your continued love and support for me during this crazy time. Safe to say I have fully recovered from the very limited injuries I managed to sustain and Ive been off all pain medication for over three weeks. My recovery has been mostly mental as I continue to analyze and process exactly what happened but one thing for sure is that I am extremely blessed to have even survived let alone walk away with no more then a concussion and some minor cuts & scratches, I seriously could never be more thankful. I remember a voice telling me “you’re lucky to be alive” and responding “definitely feels that way” and holy shit does it ever.
Those still curious as to what happened, I'm right there with you. I still have no recollection of the accident or much of that prior waking up in the hospital but my detective skills tell me that while on route from SLC to WY on i-80 during the early morning hours between 12-5AM on 5/27/16, I allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel of my vehicle and sailed off the interstate around exit 106 rolling about 6-8 times down a 70ft embankment over a fence then off a cliff. I am believed to have been unconscious for over 2 hours before finally managing to escape the remnants of my car at which point I then proceeded to shout for help, I do not remember exactly who it was that managed to find me but if you are reading this I owe you a tremendous thank you. Mad love to the paramedics and hospital staff too and most of all my friends and family for all you guys do to support me and my endeavors, I appreciate it more then you will ever know.
On a high note, I've been using this time to really to catch up on my writing and I feel like I’m making some of the best work of my life. Its taken me nearly two years to finish my follow up to “RARE DEMO SHIT (vol.1)” and my progress between the two is exponential, I seriously can't wait for you all to hear the results. I also have a plethora of 4K music videos on the cutting room floor that I have been working very hard on I am extremely proud of them so far. Safe to say I have never felt a more definitive sense of purpose in my life, my work on this earth is far from finished and I am looking forward to making the most of it. The following photo is one of many taken by Burnell Washburn during a photoshoot in SLC merely hours before my departure. I am still in awe that my 20k in camera equipment survived as well, my gratitude is beyond words.
Most important lesson I have taken from all this is that life is short and time is precious. Only thing that truly matters in this life is the impact we make on others and the legacy we leave behind after we're gone and I’ll be damned if I go out before I make it one to remember. I will try to keep the length of this post at a minimum but I can assure you all that I am doing great and I truly appreciate all of the concern, thank you for taking the time to read all this and be keep an eye out for some incredible things happening in the very near future.
