Good Bloggin Morning to Los Angeles (and especially to the occupants at 200 N. Spring Street) as we continue on in the Spirit of Michael "Mayor Sam" Higby.
The Spirit of Michael will always rise to guide us in our future blogging endeavors.
** Blogger's Note: Moving on ........, while the pain of loss is still fresh. On this Monday after so many of Michael's friends came together in celebration of a life ended too young, its time to move bloggin forward in continuing on with the mission of Michael's cyber creation. In full disclosure, the impact of Michael's passing has not run its full course of grieving (as the tears continue to flow) and will continue as his influence on my life has been so profound. For many of us who's lives were blessed in crossing paths with Michael and came together Saturday in celebration of his character of being, we would be remised if we did not offer our profound gratitude's to the Higby Family (his Sister Jodie and Father James) , plus Erin Farrell, Jack Witt and Elizabeth Espinoza for organizing a blessed ceremony of faith, song and spoken testimonial. The many spokes radiating from Michael's "Center of Being", were represented (SADA, JayCees, Family, Neighbors and longtime friends). In addition, many who befriended Michael through his Mayor Sam persona were present including David Hernandez, Assemblywoman Patty Lopez, KRLA 870 AM Talk Show Host Mark Isler, Lydia Grant, Kevin James, Bart Reed, David Barron, Nina Royal, Wally, David Berger and especially Frank "Shifty" Sheftel, who's spoken testimonial brought about a healing dose of laughter ....... Further, I want to extend a heartfelt appreciation to KRLA's Talk Show Host Randy Economy for the opportunity to speak on air Saturday evening regarding the bloggin impact of Michael's cyber creation on the Los Angeles Body Politics ....... and its continuance. Somewhere in a better place called Heaven, Michael (with his beloved Mother Judie) is smiling upon us and somewhere in my soul, is reminding me to harness the liberating power of "Spollcheck" as we move bloggin forward in the cyber pursuit of espousing a better open and transparent governess at 200 N. Spring Street (and future locations of interest) ......., but lastly in closing, I want to say simply ......, Thank You Michael---Your Friend Scott Johnson in CD 14.
