Random Thoughts

A combination of time and thoughtfulness is slightly delaying the progress of season 2. I feel I need to be much more deliberate with what I write these days. Even though we don’t mean them to be, what we choose to share in such a forum is to an extent indelible to the reader. As... Continue Reading →

Lessons

There are some things that only experience can teach us Lessons only time can offer   However the challenge, when taking advise from someone more experienced   Is trying to discern if they have learned the things they were being taught Or if they simply allowed the lessons to pass them by

Afraid For The Future

I’m no politician, no expert, I find the whole thing so utterly distasteful & corrupt that I try to stay away. I live my life the best I can (most of the time), enjoy myself & try to make a small positive impact in the world. Yet at times it is hard to ignore it... Continue Reading →

What is going on?

What is going on? It’s a question I should ask more of myself than I do. As it stands, it comes up only occasionally, fleetingly. Things have changed over the last year, not for the better. What things? The intangibles inside, the things that were “fixed” before, or so I thought. 2015 was an odd... Continue Reading →

Remind Me

.   If everyone is right Who is wrong?   If everything is true What is false?   If everyone talks Who listens?   If nothing makes sense Remind me what the point was …….    

The Start – Again

Oh hey look, writing, yeah about that … I’m not going to sit here & talk about how I am going to get back on the blogging train, I might, but I can’t make promises right now. Somehow, someway I’ve found myself in a strange place. When I started the blog it was in a... Continue Reading →

Rosé Sky

Morning delight, a shared masterpiece Between the Father & his children Given to a father and his daughter   What could it be? Is Monet at work in the sky today? Maybe a wild party in heaven left Rosé spilled on the sky   Possibly it is a caring gift, a pick you up for... Continue Reading →

Write Again

What happened to writing? I asked myself this question the other day, sadly the answer is I’m not sure. Somehow over the last few months or longer it has taken more and more of a back seat to other things. That in itself is not really a problem I guess, I mean yes I do... Continue Reading →

2 Years!!!

The craziest thing happened yesterday I got a notification on the WordPress app that my blog has now been up for 2 years. 2 years! From a guy that thought he had nothing to say. It has been quite the ride, a lot has happened in the last 2 years, I have changed a lot... Continue Reading →

The Skeptic

Thousands gather to honor the Lord Healing is suggested Then healing is claimed Can it be real? Could it be true? Why do you feel nothing? Is this all a sham A trick to try and make you believe? Really? How arrogant are you, that you could think that this is all about you?  ... Continue Reading →

Wrangling Time & Making Music

One of the challenges we bloggers face is time, if you stick at it for any length of time, there will come a period when having enough time to write your blog become sparse. That goes for any form of creative expression, unless you are fortunate enough to do it professionally. I have been through... Continue Reading →

Broken male culture – part 1

I don’t recall now exactly what the trigger was, but at some point back in December I wrote 3 poems on what I call broken male culture. Rather than just throw them on my blog I had been intending to write a couple of pieces to book end the poems. Well, intending has taken a... Continue Reading →

Favorite time of year

I love this time of year, it has always been special for me, but after 11+ years in Texas it is becoming even more so. Coming into fall (even though we still have triple digit temperatures) makes me happy because it means our summer is going to eventually end and there is the (somewhat distant)... Continue Reading →

Prayers for OKC, I am numb

Thinking about what vacation writing to post today seems a little redundant. How can I celebrate a good time when such awful news is coming south from our neighbors and friends in Oklahoma? I pray for all those affected. My mind cannot, maybe will not, comprehend the pain this tragedy has caused. Parents without children... Continue Reading →

Vacation Journal: Day 2

Vacation Journal Day 2 The day started much earlier than I had hoped for, I was woken up before sunrise by the energizer bunny. She reminded me of how I had said we would watch the sunrise on the first morning, although it was ok if I wanted to go back to sleep. I begrudgingly... Continue Reading →

Vacation Journal: Day 1

We left home fairly early, around 07:30 to set off on the 5+ hour drive south to Galveston. The drive was pretty uneventful, Houston drivers are as bad as always. We stopped at Bucky Beaver's for jerky, because, well, that’s what you do in Texas. Once we made it onto the ship we dumped our... Continue Reading →
