A brief explanation of why I chose the above picture...given a choice I've always chose the road less taken, if truth be told to be accurate the picture should be me with a backpack and a machete hacking my own path through the woods we call life

(to the tune of  "Summertime")

and the weather is humid
and I'm sweating like heck
and misquotes are coming
one is biting my neck
I'd rather be indoors
with my AC
and maybe a cold six pack

Spring is here.......finally
Winter clothes
put away for awhile
grass is green
trees are budding
and the dandelions
are well doing
what dandelions do
the geese are back
with little ones in tow
but so are the seagulls
doing what they do
which I wish they won't
but even in the best of times
a little rain must fall
but as of right now
take the bad
with the good
and in balance
the good wins out
and at least it ain't winter

Music how oft' to you I have run
you have been many times my safe place my solace
I embrace you I cover myself within your warm embrace
Regardless of what  the world....life
may throw my way in your arms
how often have I found refuge
and also the answers I seek
To you have I so oft' run
and you always seem to know what I seek
whether classical, liturgical, or even rock and roll
and if I don't find the answers I seek
I always return relaxed, and with a new perspective
and can return to my world, my life, renewed

The time is late
the darkness
like a shroud
covers the last light
of the day

my body yearns
for rest
for repose
for sleep
and rest

but the mind rarely agrees
if not the cares of the day
my imagination
often refuses to rest
until it's travels are complete

or the unresistable
power of sleep
finally wins
and the imagination
lays dominant....for a while
