Today is my birthday. I am officially 60 years of age.
And my daughter, Faith, is officially 19.
My friend, Lama Lar, wrote me yesterday to tell me
that today is also VESAK, or Buddha’s Birthday.
How about that?
el Furecat, his daughter Faith and the Buddha have
the same birthday?
Then again, creepy Karl Marx shares the same
Don’t want no part of that ideology.
Early this morning, as in 1 AM early, my wife
gave me one of my favorite collectibles.
A brand spanking new Montblanc pen.
I filled it with blue ink and began writing a
few lines in cursive. For those of you in
the U.K. or Australia, that’s what you call
“joined up” writing.
Cursive writing is a copywriter’s best friend.

Yesterday a man wrote,
“So, you’re a poet now.”
I’ve always been a poet.
He just doesn’t know it.
Started out that way as a child,
when I was unrefined and wild.
Hid my poetry for many years,
fearful of imaginary laughs and jeers.

had no intention of looking smart.
Didn’t know how it would be received,
then along came a letter, and I believed.
Copywriters who cannot write in rhymes,

Last December, my Zen Mastery Newsletter
was filled with a plethora of inspiring poems
pithy sayings and witticisms. Much of it was
written over the years, but never let out of the bag.
’twas my private and personal thoughts on success.
One subscriber, the great Michael McLean, told me
that one issue of Zen Mastery
was the most POWERFUL, impactful newsletter he has
read from ANYONE in the last three years.
I was STUNNED. Even though I shouldn’t be.
Poetry is PERSUAVIVE.
Don’t think so?
Then look up the phrase…
“If the glove doesn’t fit,
you must acquit.”

Anyway, for today only, I have added my
Poetry is Persuasive newsletter as one of
your bonus gifts.
If Michael McLean, who’s made over $155 millyuns in
this marketing whirld says my newsletter kicks azz, then,
as the saying goes,
”You can take that to the bank.”
