Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.

2004

It's very cold and frigid. The wind blows with a vengeance.

2003

sick today, slept most of it away after work, actually slept it all away once I got home, thankfully it was a slow day at work and I didn't have to move much.

2002

I've been busy working on the site, I am beginning to wonder if I shall ever get all the old stuff here, and when I do if I'll be so wore out from doing it I won't want to add some new stuff, not that I haven't added some new stuff along the way but something major. I wish I could just get one area done, but I find I stick with one area too long I get bored with it, and want to change the lay out again. Like I did the verse area today. I am hoping that the brighter backgrounds in this area will motivate me to not write so depressive.

I realized while the copying and transferring of the old entries into this new format that, man I'm a very depressive person, I also noticed that when things in my life were going relatively good I failed to write much at all. One of my resolutions this year was to write more, to be more open with my thoughts, and not be so evasive with open end suggestions of what could have been, what could be and what is.

It's been a fairly quiet day. but it snowed, the first real snowfall of any account this winter, and definitely the first one of the new year. I should go out and clean my walk, but as I'm still feeling a bit under the weather, I think I will wait until tomorrow to do it.

I feel sort of content I guess would be the description I would use. I have a new picture of a smiling face sitting on my desk top and when I look into those blue eyes I know, that someone is thinking of me and I don't feel so alone.

Dear Friend;

Today is your birthday, I still recall
Even though I haven't heard from you since fall,
I wish you happiness on this, your day
For Joy and Laughter to be yours, I pray

Happy Birthday to an old Friend

1999

A darkened window pane
A distorted reflection of thyself
Casting it's spell of wonderment
I stepped closer
Searching for the person inside the refraction
Moisture had formed, tears or a cleansing?

I reached out to feel, was it real?
The reflection answered with a coldness
A wall of separation
Denying to feel or to be touched
Searching with in thine own eyes
Not an answer came

1998

I sent a message to a friend
It said Count your Blessings though out this day,
for tonight I want a full report.

I'm tired today, and my thoughts are really tangled. Which way shall I turn. I think I will sleep upon it.

The first duty of a man is the seeking after and the investigation of truth.
