CJ What Happened to Your Face?—Discovered Photos
I've had the ultimate highs and the lowest of lows in my life, dysfunctional upbringing, being fired, love, divorce, children, success, failure, nothing to #1, smooth skin and wrinkles and aside from the pain that divorce brought my children and my daughter's illness—I wouldn't change a thing.
I unlocked my phone tonight and had several photos from one of the sweetest women I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and also working with, in my life—Donna Dardar. The radio station was Y 96 in Morgan City. It was the second or third station I ever worked at, I can't remember the order.
Y-96 was a Top-40 radio station and I did the morning show, Greg Stevens did news with some interaction. He was my best friend at the time. Greg took his life many years ago and I'm still saddened by it.
Donna was the receptionist and just an incredibly lovely lady. The epidemy of what a human being should strive to be.
Her family found old photos from the early to mid-80s of me. When I first saw them while sitting at my kitchen table after a long not so good day, a flood of emotion came over me. To the point of my chest getting tight. I was sad, happy, satisfied, disappointed, you name it I felt it and in an instant.
Where does the time go? Am I where I want to be? Did I achieve what I set out to achieve? Did I even have a plan? What happened to my face? What happened to me? Am I lost or am I found? I can't even begin to describe the rush of emotions.
This is what I saw—

I'm literally shaking. Silly? I don't think so. These few pictures touched the core of my soul tonight bringing tears to a much older face.
Ironically Siri was playing this song, a song I'd never heard in my life.
