"In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted."
- Bertrand Russell -


"Time and money spent in helping men do more for themselves is far better than mere giving."
- Henry Ford -


"Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins."
- Mark 11:24 -


upside down that is the way things seem to me right now and I wonder if and when they will ever be right again. I'm thinking likely never


I'm sick and tired of feeling the way I do, I'm sick and tired of not having a life, work and home are not life, but life alone with no one to share it with isn't either. how in the hades do I go beyond this point. I hate being here, I hate everything about my life as it is now. and knowing there is no one there to care or able to change it, I must somehow make that change but how?


the choice was given and made
now it's time to move forward
to somehow learn trust again
to somehow believe in someone once again
to somehow find what I am missing in life


if I were to love you
If I were to give to you
If I were to be as I am
If I were to see you as you are
If I were to know the answer
If I were to love you and only you


Money is good for bribing yourself through the inconveniences of life.
- Gottfried Reinhardt -


Lost in thought
of what life has brought
Pleasures and pain
Teardrops and rain

Lost in Thought
of what I have sought
Dreams and joys
Nightmares and toys

Lost in thought
of what time has bought
Love and loss
heartache and cost


So many different shades of gray
I long for the days when it was black and white
where the questions were simple
and the answers easy

A deeper Shade of white
or a darker Shade of black
A rainbow of colors
or a chance to see

My heart knows great love
for the answers to be solved
I long for the day that
the colors abound

Where are the greens and blues
the scarlet and yellows
Where are the violets and roses
the oranges and limes

A deeper Shade of white
or a darker Shade of black
A rainbow of colors
or a chance to see


To accomplish great things, we must dream as well as act.
- Anatole France -
