I Turned Down Fame and Fortune

In 1972 Christine Rosamond Benton asked me to be her manager after her neighbor in Woodland Hills ripped her off after he offered to manage her phenomenal overnight success. I turned this offer down.

In 1975, Christine offered to teach me her style so I could be rich and famous, too. I turned this offer down – after she assured me I am responsible for her success – and deserved so much.

Some people, close to me have suggested I am authoring an exploitation novel. Why then am I giving away most of my knowledge – for free?

I lost my daughter and grandson because she and her family believed I was preventing them from going to members of my family, and the outsiders they back, so my offspring  could join them in the Counting & Contract vault deep inside the Rosamond Gallery & Cult. Here, gold bars were being handed out along with Contracts to star in movies and Las Vegas shows. I have not seen Heather and Tyler Hanson in over five years. They call me mad!

The reason I turned Christine down, was I believed I was on a Spiritual Path, and her art had become too commercialized. I was a follower of Meher Baba, and had taught my muse, Rena Easton all I knew about the Masters of India while camping. She was seventeen, and I was twenty-four. I was dedicated to getting her on a Spiritual Path, verses fucking her beautiful brains out. Most sane males of the world, would say I was insane. All the parasites who went after Dead Rosamond’s “legacy” that was left to her two daughter, have called me insane and deluded. I can say most of these Disqualifiers hoped I would kill myself, and leave them alone to their lies and their covert activity, that does not render them insane. Why not?

Christine and I had an incredible Identity Crisis, the rival of Walter and Keane, whom our aunt and uncle were friends of.  I took up the brush again in hope of owning some success, so I could ask Rena to marry me.  As I rendered the portrait of Rena that Christine later saw a photo of, I wondered if I was copping out, betraying my principles. When I turned Christine, I wondered if I was insane. When I gave up my art because it failed to get beautiful Rena back into my life, I understood I had a price. All I ever wanted, was, to be inspired!

For fifty days atop our mountain overlooking Monte Rio, I had it all….God The Avatar, and the most beautiful woman in the world. They were my witness, as to how beautiful I was. I would never be that beautiful again?

I just can’t go on living life as I do
Comparing each girl to you
Knowing they just won’t do
They’re not you

You Are Everything

The Stylistics

Today I saw somebody
Who looked just like you
She walked like you do
I thought it was you

As she turned the corner
I called out your name
I felt so ashamed
When it wasn’t you, wasn’t you, oh, oh

You are everything and everything is you
Oh, oh you are everything and everything is you
Oh, oh, you are everything and everything is you

How can I forget
When each face that I see
Brings back memories
Of being with you

I just can’t go on living life as I do
Comparing each girl to you
Knowing they just won’t do
They’re not you

You are everything and everything is you
Oh, oh you are everything and everything is you
Oh, oh you are everything and everything is you

You are everything and everything is you
Oh, oh you are everything and everything is you
Oh, oh
