It's kind of strange, that today I traveled to Bryan, a place I think of often but haven't visited in years. I wouldn't have gone today but Paulie needed a ride home, and Mat wanted Prime Rib so we went. I must admit the meal was wonderful, and I'm not much of a steak person but gads it was good.

tired that was the day
the long drive
the long hours
sleep was quick and fast

2003

I wonder at the silence, the cold shoulder but yet the interest in what I am thinking, and how I still feel, the thoughts I do not speak are the ones that need to be discussed, but yet the hidden ears may never see.

2002

I seem to be torn between my heart and my head
I seem to be pulled between what I need and what I want
I seem to be bound and yet free
I seem to be thrown to the wind
I seem to be confused in where or what or when or how
I seem to be wandering aimlessly without purpose or use
I seem to be here but not
I seem to be searching for answers that are not
I seem to be looking for what is inside
I seem to be weak and lacking in inner strength

I seem to be?

1999

Smiles and sunshine
Love and laughter
Hope and happiness
Kisses and kindness

1998

Shivers
it's cold
and
lonely
Standing
on the
outside
looking
in
Seeing
their laughter
and
their
happiness
Speaking
their love
to
one
and
another
Sharing
their thoughts
planning
the
future
Sometimes
I wish
it
were
me

1997

A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
