The Soul of The Age

“I asked Mel to present this award for me for a reason.

When I couldn’t get sober, he told me not to give up hope and encouraged me to find my faith. 

It didn’t have to be his or anyone else’s as long as it was rooted in forgiveness

And I couldn’t get hired, so he cast me in the lead of a movie that was actually developed for him

He kept a roof over my head 
food on the table 

and most importantly,

He said if 

I accepted responsibility for my wrongdoing 


Embraced that part of my soul that was ugly 

hugging the cactus, he calls it — 

He said that if I hugged the cactus long enough, I’d becom

A Man of Some Substance.

So, I did, and it worked.

All he asked in return was that someday I help The Next Guy in some small way’s reasonable to assume at the time he didn’t imagine the next guy would be him or that 'someday' was tonight. 

So anyway on this special occasion and in light of the recent holidays, including   Columbus Day, I would ask that you join me, 

[ unless you are completely without sin in which case you picked the wrong f—ing industry

in forgiving my friend his trespasses and offering him the same clean slate you have me

Allowing him to continue his great and ongoing contribution to our collective art without shame. 

He’s hugged The Cactus long enough.
