What Is
Life In Fast Forward?
Welcome to the online home of me, some guy given the name John Cleveland Payne. In the grand scheme of life, I am just another guy with another blog. But to myself, and hopefully to all of you who actually read this, I am something a little more special. From a young age, I fell in love of the idea of ‘the message’ and medium in which you try to transmit.

Basically, everyone has a message to give to the world. Some are basic, some complex, some have the power to up lift and some are just out there to bring as many people down as possible. But everyone has a message, and most people have problems identifying their message. And the ones who get that far can seem to figure out how to get the world to listen.

Well, I have a message, and this is where I will get a chance to share it. Hopefully, you’ll get plenty of things to keep you motivated or inspired, provide knowledge and comfort, and just have a little fun. Apologies for the state of flux and state of seemingly confusing messages that you’ll get here for a while, as I am doing a lot of personal soul searching, and scrubbing of old ideas to take the best of the past to build a new beginning.

In 2007, I changed the name of blog from “The Mis-Adventures Of The Jazzy Cool One” to “Life In Fast Forward.” I began to tear down old blogs and newsletters and try to find places for them here. My goal is to take the focus off of me the person, and show the world the life I live and share with every human on the planet. I aspire to life at a very high standard, and instead of dealing with people who rather slow us down, I want to find ways to help people pick up there own pace. As you get to see an insight to the further adventures I hope to lead, hopefully you’ll enjoy the ride, and want to come along.

Hurricane Rita did a number on Texas, Louisiana, and surprisingly, Arkansas. Southern Arkansas has around 60,000 customers out of power as of this posting, and the new devastation in cities like Beaumont, TX and Lake Charles, LA have been seen all over TV today.

What is amazing is how we remember people in time of trouble that we just don't seem to think about until it is time to send out Christmas cards. My parents received a flood (no pun intended) of phone calls about them as everyone saw the satellite map of the storm floating over North Louisiana. Then the calls came in about me when Little Rock, Arkansas popped up on those maps.

I am just as guilty. I thought about some family friends who live in Houston, Tim and Kazan, and there kids, only to find when I called my mom that they were right there. Tim resided over my Oath of Office when I got my commission into the Air Force almost 8 years ago, and I barely think about the guy.

For all my problems, and I do have real problem to deal with, it's be tough trying to keep my life in perspective, and I have always be bad at picking the wrong people to try to keep in touch with over time. Yes, it takes a tragedy to get people to figure out these things, but don't know the messenger if the message gets through.

    my dad is in emmitsburg, maryland, this week and he saw on the news that a tornado hit lonoke county, so he called to make sure my mom was okay. it's strange that a small gust of wind that blows apart two trailers in southern lonoke county makes news in baltimore isn't it? he thought it was funny that it really wasn't as bad here as they were making it out to be. thank goodness!
