VISTAS: An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects. A broad Mental View.

I cannot change the way I am,
I never really try,
God made me different and unique,
I never ask him why.

If I appear peculiar,
There's nothing I can do,
You must accept me as I am,
As I've accepted you.

God made a casting of each life,
Then threw the Mold away,
Each child is different from the rest,
Unlike as night from day.

So often we will criticize,
The things that others do,
But, do you know, they do not think,
The same as me and you.

So God in all his wisdom,
Who knows us all by name,
He didn't want us to be bored,
That's why we're not the same

Woke up in the middle of the night sick to my stomach, thought I'd try working but only made it about 3 hours before I just couldn't do it anymore. I'm wondering where this flu came from, since I didn't know the bug was going around and I haven't been around anyone who has been sick..hmmmm

"To laugh often and much; To win respect of intelligent people and the affection of children. To leave the world a better place. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson-

today I shall shut this puter off, take a break, find life and return tomorrow.

2003

have you ever wondered if you would have made a different choice how different your world could be. One thing I have learned in this life is no matter what the choice is there is always good and bad, and the ability to determine when it is more bad than good to change the choices made is the most valuable of lessons learned

I had a dream
of everything in my heart
the hurt, the pain
and the desire for a new start

there was no failures
there was no past
there was only now and things to come
there was only things that would last

Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.

He is leaving again, is it another lie or is it the truth this time
Where does he really go
Should I give him my trust or shall I follow?

Sometimes I wonder what I did wrong in raising the boys. How did they all come out so differently. When do they pass that age of being a child and become a man. I can't hold their hands through life, so I won't try. They must follow their own path. Knowing this and accepting it is the hard thing to do however.

Life's road
Forever winding
changing
Like the wind

Life's road
Watching it unfold
unraveling
Like a worn sweater

Life's road
Highs and lows
Building mountains to climb
and burning bridges to never cross again

1998

Quiet, Peaceful, Tranquility

1997

There is danger in both belief and unbelief.
- Phaedrus -
