Earlier this month, I made my best-ever trip
to Costa Rica and returned to Florida feeling on top of the
world. It was a beautiful, sunny day and I gave the cab driver
directions to where I live on my 46' houseboat in a luxury,
gated marina. As soon as I stepped out of my cab...
My World Turned Upside Down!
That's because in the early morning hours just
before dawn on that same day, my houseboat had sunk. The staff
at the marina managed to get a salvage crew on an emergency
basis to raise my houseboat up out of the water and get it
floating again. So far, there has been no satisfactory reason
given to me as to why my houseboat sunk. It remains a mystery.
Since that boat was my home, just about
everything I owned was in it. Now, of course, it's all been
destroyed. From the smallest possessions like my photographs,
CD's, video tapes, audio cassettes and books... to bigger
items like my computer, fax machine and exercise equipment...
to larger pieces including all my bedroom, living room and
dining furniture... everything.
I've always traveled light to and from Costa
Rica. You see, I actually keep a small, second set of clothes
there so I won't have to pack much for my visits. Unbeknownst
to me, what I put on that day preparing to fly out of Costa
Rica (a pair of socks, a pair of underwear, a pair of
trousers, a belt and a shirt) would pretty much be all I would
have left in this world. In short...
I Was Pretty Much Wearing
Everything I Owned!
I do not consider this a tragedy. No, a
tragedy would be if my fiancée said she really didn't love me
and we weren't going to be together any more... or... one of
my children had been in a serious accident... or... some
grievous misfortune had befallen somebody in my "extended
family" whom I love very much.
My loss may not be a tragedy but, it is a
massive inconvenience. If there were an "inconvenience
scale" with ratings from 1 to 10, I'd give this situation a
Anyway, I've since managed to get a bare bones
wardrobe, another computer, and even an apartment. (I have to
have some place to lay my head at the end of the day.)
Needless to say, I'm struggling endlessly to put some kind of
order back into my life and to reconstruct it to a semblance
of what it was before my houseboat went down.
Just imagine if you and your family had gone
out for dinner only to return home to discover your house had
been gutted with fire. That's more or less what I am
experiencing and trying to cope with this month.
Why do I tell you all this? Is it merely to
"sing the blues"? No. I'm writing this to let you know there
is not going to be a March, 2002 issue of The Gary
Halbert Letter. I can't write it because I'm simply too
occupied with everything I mentioned above... plus... all the
preparations I'm making for my upcoming "Patches of Light"
seminar. Which, by the way, is only a couple of weeks away.
But, I did want to write all my Subscribers
and tell them briefly what has happened to me and give them
all the low-down on the seminar. I felt that perhaps some of
you may have just learned at the last minute it will be
possible for you to attend my seminar. If that's the case,
here's the information you need:
|My "Patches of Light"
Seminar will be held at The Renaissance Orlando Resort
(obviously, in Orlando, Florida). It's located at 6677 Sea
Harbor Drive (next door to SeaWorld). You can book your room
by calling 1-800-468-3571. Be sure to tell them
be attending the "Gary Halbert Patches of Light Seminar"
because Theresa has negotiated a very special room rate for my
attendees. The Renaissance can hold that exclusive rate open
for reservations until Wednesday, April 10. The seminar
will start at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, April 19 and will end at
approximately 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 21.
Now don't you waste a single minute feeling
sorry for me. I always knew life sucked... and my houseboat
sinking with all my belongings...
Is Just One More Proof Of The
Validation Of That Reality!
