"Passion, though a bad regulator, is a powerful spring."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson -


the journey is marked by cuts, bruises and scars
the path is bent, curved and forked
the steps go forward then retreat

but no matter the trails we converse
no matter the route we take
it all ends in the same spot, the one given us at the start.


"I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it."
- Thomas Jefferson -


"And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last."
- Revelation 22:12,13 -


This Sunday found me on my way to San Diego just to see the ocean. the border of Mexico loomed to the left on the way there and on the right at night A line of lights told us where it was and the border patrol reminded us of the problem illegal immigration really is.

Looking at the area, there is no comprehension of what would be so bad to cross such a desolate terrain in searing heat to come here to America.

The Casino we visited on the reservation was a sure highlight of the trip. Consealuo and the napkins, or the cheesecake that wasn't cheesecake at all but ice cream cake and seemed to be never ending. I laughed so hard, something I haven't done in such a long time.


another night spent with family
a day of new experiences for the younger generation
a day of recollections
sharing stories and tales of younger years


My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.
- Thomas Paine -


When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
- Lao Tzu -


Storm upon the horizon
Sheets of rain approaching
Wind and Trees fighting
and then it passes


Thinking of you bringing me wildflowers in my sleep
soft kisses placed upon my cheek
I felt your fingers trace a slow path along my neck
A smile touch my lips
You whispered I love you
My dreams were sweet.


The essence of health is inner balance.
- Andrew Weil -
