VISTAS: An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects. A broad Mental View.

It is only when they go wrong that machines remind you how powerful they are.

2006

Well i think I am finally getting closer to getting this entire section of the Vistas converted to the new layout, only about 10 or 15 more pages to go, plus a few new poems in the Classic poets section and it will be time to move on to the next Vista to convert, I still haven't decided which one it will be, but I am sure by next weekend I will. Nothing exciting happened today, Mat worked on the GTO, and Nelson was a sweetheart all day so nothing to report on that front. Gads I have an exciting life.

Do you wonder when you see a star
if I see the same thing from afar?
Do you wonder if your thought
can be heard or bought?
Do you wonder if your tear
can be seen this clear?
Do you wonder when I speak
that you could peak
Do you wonder if I sing
hoping the phone may ring?
do you wonder?

A man reserves his true and deepest love not for the species of woman in whose company he finds himself electrified and enkindled, but for that one in whose company he may feel tenderly drowsy.
- George Jean Nathan -

to the sunshine I send my wish to shine upon me once again
to the darkness I send my hope that you shall leave me
to the days of yesterday I dream that someday you shall be truly gone
to the dawning of the morrow, I pray for peace, love and life

spaghetti, whiney fights, he did she did, he won't she won't, mommy mommy, and fake eyelashes silence the tears, and quarrels, Shrek, and pleasant conversation, hours later the memory lingers but the house returns to silence and I to my world of isolation, and unfulfilled dreams. the silence is so loud at times

2001

to the East my thoughts linger and lay

2000

I want to forgive and forget, but only one of the two seems to come to my heart right now, and that is the forgetting, how or when will I get over my feelings of anger so that I can forgive?

1999

Set upon the wind, with no direction but my own recourse, resulting in a feeling of trepidation and fear of the unknown passages within thy mind. A journey into the unknown avenues of life, leading to many mountains to climb and to overcome, but yet with faith and spirit I shall overcome.

1998

Sometimes I sit and ponder many ponderous thoughts
so many things to question and explore
so many possibilities and solutions

Like why does the sun raise in the East instead of the West
Like why one person loves spinach and another hates it
Like why do brothers and sisters fight

so many questions so many different answers

1997

The advertisement is the most truthful part of a newspaper.
