"Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It's the sure footedness that comes with having proved you can meet life.

2003

again my thoughts must be carried upon the wind, for heavy on my mind has he been, I still haven't put the pictures away, the gifts or anything else, and deep in the night I think or things we discussed, of things that we shared, and how one could be understanding and the other not see how it really was, I wonder where and why things got twisted around, why the third person couldn't understand there was no malice nor deceit, no threat, I believe maybe it's because no one can understand how it was between us two, how much it could have been if it were allowable, and how much it wasn't because of the line and the knowledge that it cold not be crossed.

Once again I have noticed my thoughts walked upon, who is doing the walking, that is what I wonder, have wondered for so long, who is the one who I talked to though the e-mails, who's words were spoken to me and whose feelings were really conveyed...how many lies were in there, and why have they been?

No matter what and no matter how anyone else feels, my love for him will always be here in my heart, and nothing will ever take that away from me.

sometimes a person must take the time to stop and reflect on all that has come to pass, and what the possibilities of what is to come. There also comes a time when it's time to stop being cautious and fly with the wind.

things turn around and around
don't give more than you can receive
don't take more than you can give

2000

Will the tears ever stop
Will my heart ever find itself capable of giving all ever again
Will I find peace at last?
Soon

1999

The wind is blowing
changing things
whispering
calling out to me
guiding me
giving me a new direction

1998

Rain,
a cool repast
soaking the spring ground

Wind
an angry interruption
drying the soil

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
