Sometimes I think of what might have been if things were different for me and for you or for her or him, how the ending may have been if it would have been a different time or a different place, and yet I know that it was never meant for that to be or it would have been, just as you and I know this to be the truth.

the trip home began today. we should have left a bit earlier in the day than we did but oh well we didn't. I saw some magnificent scenery today. strange how the mountains change so much over Arizona, New Mexico and into Texas. How anything survives in such a dry place is amazing but yet I learned from my couple of days in Phoenix the desert is very much alive.

Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life.

Looking through the glass
hidden behind reflection
Silently watching
Love shall come
from someone


Sweet summer bliss, lost within his kiss
My thoughts have carried me while the thoughts of you have been buried
no longer will you haunt my dreams


A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him.
- David Brinkley -
