    Hey friends,

    After a few weeks off due to the "death" of my company, I wish to inform you that I'm back. I'm alive and well, and everything is alright now for me.

    Well, after 5 years spent working on computers, Internet technologies and so on, I gave the best I could to offer a decent life to my family. I succeeded to it, until a huge swindle put my company down.

    What I learnt from this experience, is that life is too short to turn one's back on what one loves the most.

    That's why I decided that, from now, I'll make a full-time job out of music. I have very interesting contacts with artists and bands, and there's no doubt I'll find a way to earn enough money to live decently, while doing what I love the most : music.

    And even more, this will give me more time to spend with my wife and daughter.

    Once again I wish to thank all of you who offered me support and sympathy when I was down.

    Peace.

    Thanks for your kind words !

    Well, how have I been doing ?... First, when I went off the boards, I was not in a positive state of mind, and then I fell into the starting phase of a nervous breakdown. This was not me at all, I'm always laughin', jokin', etc... I had to take over myself to stop lookin' behind. The most important thing was not yesterday's professional accident, it was definitely tomorrow's good life. This indeed helped me stop the breakdown process.

    I took time to sleep, take time for everything, since previously I was always on the run. I also took more time, much more time, to play bass.

    Now, what did I forget to do ? Uhhhh... I forgot to update my supporting membership here... :meh: The process is being done now... ;)
