We have to look inward to find the peace within us and then let it radiate out, much like a ray of light, and touch those around us.

The Greatest Gift.

And while we spoke of many things, fools and kings, this he said to me: 'The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return.'



Eden Ahbez, 1908-1995

American Musician, Songwriter and Poet







With an anguish only the greatest romantic can know, I have loved without love being returned, but have been left with with its lesser kin, to be liked in an abundance, has been returned while faun's and naked fairies danced at my feet and those… Continue

BreakFast

Light glittered off the huckleberry syrup decanter sitting on the shelf in front of me, on the mantel above the grill, while cars passed and fractured the light coming through the large cafe windows behind me.



I sat at the counter, nor really out of choice, but because all the booths were already full when I walked into Oliver's Cafe at noon today.



After being greeted and receiving a large mug of black coffee and looked through the menu and ordered the "Big Breakfast" an… Continue

The Winds of Change

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

8/14/2009



You are feeling the Moon's fragmenting tugs as she first pulls you one way and then another. You might try to disregard your changing emotions, but now you don't seem to have a lot of control over what you're feeling. Let the whimsical winds blow as they might; attempts to alter their direction are fruitless. Take detours and scenic routes when possible, for your experience widens once you step off the beaten…

Haiku - 2

The rooster crows twice
Fingers of light touch the house,
Painting the walls white.

Haiku

Dark gray is the sky
Water droplets fall from high
Spotting ground once dry.

Going the Distance

10,000 steps is where I began and little thoughts eased their way into my mind.



Common threads:

Life

Work

Tread Mill



Seeming endless cycle, but does come to an end:



Birth and Death

Hire and Retirement

Beginning to the End



Like a hamster running on his exercise wheel.

Round and round she goes---Where she stops, know one knows



5,000 steps—Half way there and the tally for the journey reads something like… Continue

Sangria Summer

The summer sun is coming on with a vengeance for being sequestered during the winter, which must be true because temperatures are holding between ninety and a hundred degrees. Salty sweat keeps trickling into my eyes, which makes them cry without any effort from feelings inside.



I think they call this type of summer a "Sangria Summer" which I have from a great authority and directly quoted from me. Not being Spanish, obviously I've always had to pretend, so I put on my best cotton… Continue

First Crush

I saw her for the first time sitting alone on a swing, both hands gently gripping the chains that supported either side of the swing, while she swung lazily back and forth a few feet at a time. I moved closer and stood at the swing next to hers and asked, “Is it okay if I sit here?”



She looked up with her dark lashes half covering her chocolate brown eyes and smiled. Her white teeth flashed at me and replied, “Yes.”



For a moment I could not move, as her eyes swallowed mine… Continue

The Bard

The bard, Barracuda Bob,

Once a hero of mine, could

Categorically claim

To spout perfectly putrid perturbing

Poetry all the time.



It wasn’t his way out wacky words

Which made him this hero of mine.

It was the courage to commit

His callous crimes,

That made him shine.



Standing slightly slumped with

Loose, lewd, overlapping lips

Laboring he blew raspberry kisses

At anyone who happened to walk by.



Then with a… Continue

Walking Thoughts

I started walking today---a new habit I am trying to develop. I let my treadmill take me places I’ve never gone before. It is amazing what the imagination will do.
