VISTAS: An awareness of a range of time, events, or subjects. A broad Mental View.
September 28

Is your heart heavy laden with anger;
are you wounded by the pierce of a word
that was spoken with thought unregarded;
are you hurt by the things that you heard?

Do the sun and its rays all elude you;
do your eyes never light in a smile?
Are you plagued with a need to get even;
are your feelings as bitter as bile?

Then it’s time to let go of emotions
that afflict your mind and your soul,
and it’s time to start mending some fences,
with forgiveness your ultimate goal.

You may think that it’s hard to accomplish,
that your pride is too great to give in,
but the one who hangs on to resentment
is the one who never will win.

For the person who is the big winner
and the person who’s learned how to live
is not one who harbors ill feelings
but the one who has learned to forgive.

has your body ever been so ware out, from walking more than your share of miles, from lifting more than possible, from the constant beating that over exertion and extended hours cause from time to time...and then when you finally get to sit...a sign appears. a rainbow wrapped in a golden glow...and all of a sudden peace comes to you. that is when you thank god for blessing you.

talking in circles going in directions that are not directions of the the senses but inner paths away from the natural and normal being of life as that of the people who follow inside

the river flows carrying away the thoughts of the wind

1999

Trust?
What is trust?
How is it defined?
How is it given?
and when is it broken?

Faith?
What is faith?
Is it a belief?
A wishful dream?
Where is it found?

Love?
A heartbeat in the wind?
A pounding within?
A feeling undefined?
Why do we need?

1998

Will the lesson be learned
What will the price be
Children lose so much
by not having the knowledge of life
experience speaks but only to oneself

Golf is a game in which you yell ''fore'', shoot six, and write down five.
