Friendship is a blessing.
It's the best you have to share.
The talents and the wisdom.
The capacity to care,
whatever needs arise.
It's making sure that
others know they're special
in your eyes.
Friendship is a blessing.
And to all who have a friend
it's one of the most precious
gifts that life could ever send.
- Emily Matthews -

2006

The colts won today, can't say they did much to impress me, but a win is a win no matter how ugly it was getting it. Tony Stewart won the race, and his car wasn't even running when it crossed the finish line because he had ran out of gas, again a win is a win no matter how you get it. Besides that nothing else has gone on today. Steve came and got the 50 out of the garage and took it down to the corner. I'm ready for bed and it's only a little after 8. I got to go to the dentist tomorrow, I'm sure not looking forward to that, but it has to be done, so will do it and get it over with.

2004

fall seems to be beginning to show some of her colors, I recall the years past and the walks in the park, through the trees, and time at times I wish I could bring back, but I guess that is what memories are for, they are for saving for when you no longer have what you did.

2003

they swarmed, they scanned they counted they left it was late

2002

in a land of upright trees
where the sky is blue and the words are true

where true love not passion
are the in fashion

where dreams of forever
are one of life's endeavors

in the land of fallen leaves
where some still believe

where hand in hand
woman and man still stand

where the truth lies
and no one can deny

in the land of what was is
where love given was his

2001

It seems as though life had changed so much in the past couple of weeks, I wonder at my feelings with all that has happened.

2000

dreams of what
dreams of where
dreams of who
dreams of why
dreams I hope to try

1999

My life has had many meanings, many paths, joys sorrows, and laughs

1998

tinkling bells chime in the wind
trees scream their scarlet colors
a coolness in the air
star less night
haunting sights
October comes
silently from the night
