I see your in my thoughts, now I wonder am I in yours as much as you are in mine? You walk these pages more than once a day, you leave your mark still to this day, and I have to ask why? Why after all this time. I'd truly like an honest answer not a circle of words meant more to confuse than to resolve the question that I ask. But knowing what I know, I will never know the answer for honesty of the heart is much harder than being honest in other ways. Don't you agree?


“We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.”
– Carlos Castaneda -


I hate that I waste so much time doing nothing, somehow I have to figure out how to put meaning back into my life, somehow or someone to do something for. To give me motivation to go to the next day and to see what can come from it instead of hoping tomorrow never comes.


if I could journey into the place of peace, where the yesterdays were gone and the tomorrow all that was then I'm certain that I would find the joy and happiness each one of us deserves. so beneath the cloak of time I bury the days of ago, stored in a memory that in time will return


Sunshine, do you ever come to read what I am thinking? Do you know that I am thinking of you and I question the silence, who is keeping silent and who is the one that is pulling the strings in the game this time?

The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' but 'That's funny...'
- Isaac Asimov -


In retrospect dreams again begin to come to mind
a wanting and a desire to find the missing piece that will make me whole


Time passes by so swiftly
in a blink of an eye yesterday has disappeared
replaced by today
I remember as a child thinking tomorrow would never come
and now that it has I wish for yesterday


It is best to do things systematically, since we are only human, and disorder is our worst enemy.
- Hesiod -
