"If you want happiness for an hour...take a nap.

If you want happiness for a day...go fishing.

If you want happiness for a month...get married.

If you want happiness for a year...inherit a fortune.

If you want happiness for a lifetime...help others."

2006

A sort of lazy day, the last day of vacation officially, now it's the weekend, oh great now what do I do with these days, there really isn't anything to fill them, but hey I have them anyhow. the music uptown is really loud as they celebrate the days of summer in town, the blue light parade past the house was kind of neat to see. Mat is here, but not in a good mood, seems Cheyenne kind of made him mad by smoking, but she was mad because the coach was here as well, and lord knows none of us like him. Well nothing exciting today, but it was a day in my life just the same.

2004

It's funny how a change in routine can either cause major chaos or a pleasant sense of achievement. Maybe I need to work at changing things more often and forget the routine

2003

sometimes I dare to dream and when I do I become sad

2002

the midnight hour has just passed. I am thinking of the sunshine, the roof, the moonlight, the moments we shared.

2001

it hurts to be me
there is so much pain with no visible wounds
there is so much grief with no sorrow or death
there is so much in me

2000

the melody pulled me toward your arms
the tune caused me to sway in my resolve to stand alone
the music so sweet the touch sweeter
the song played on in my memory forever

1999

Someday
Eyes closed
Dreams
Fantasies
Happiness
and joy

1998

Silent winds fill no sails
Quiet seas move not a ship
Tranquil currents allow us to drift
into an aimless motion
with no direction
Flowing as the sand
With the tide
From shore to shore
into the unknown
with no anchor

1997

We must always tell what we see. Above all, and this is more difficult, we must always see what we see.
