Lean on me, my Darling
In your times of need.
I will always be available
Your request I will ever heed.

I'll be here forever for you
All you need to do is call.
When you're feeling lost and alone
I promise I will never let you fall.

Everyone has times in their lives
When they face a dark, stormy day.
Their comfort comes in knowing
Someone is waiting not very far away.

So, lean on me when you need me
As I sometimes will be leaning on you
Together we can change those dark clouds
Into skies of crystal, clear blue.

Well round three at the dentist went okay, thnakfully only one more time and that tooth should be done for good. Nothing much going on today, been watching a goood movie on tv tonight. The name of it is Hidden Places.


"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."
– Ralph Waldo Emerson -


I began work on the landing today, It's truly been a bit fun stripping the old paper off, revealing some surprises and yet none of concern which in itself is a surprise. I looked at colors, I want red and gray, Mat says no red so maybe me and him will have to duke it out. It seems strange living with someone else in the house again, but a welcome change, the little bit of conversation when he is here is good for me.


the day after, running just wanting to have it done and over with so the week could end. Not as bad as it could have been but not as good as I would have liked it.


winds of change
sorrow that cannot be gauged
the soul fills with rage
as the time comes to turn the page


In all it's color, the world seems huge, so huge it could swallow me


I wonder where the future lies


I used to dream of days when the sun shone upon your face
and we could sit back and relax from the rat race
a slow steady sort of pace
wrapped in leather and lace
making our own space
and surviving in this hellish place


Have you ever wondered something but you did not know what, where or when, like I just don't know but I wonder?

Have you ever tried to make your mind totally void of any thoughts? Is it possible, for if you think black then you are still thinking.

Have you ever heard a song and thought why didn't I think of that before, or what a way to state your thoughts from that moment in time?

Have you ever tried to confound and confuse by using words with no meanings but just as fillers for a space in the conversation?

Have you ever been so lost you were sure you would never be found and that maybe being found wasn't what you really wanted anyhow?

Have you ever?


A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature to stop speech when words become superfluous.
