nothing much to write about today, went to the dentist and got my teeth cleaned, took a trip to Auburn and cleaned out the car, then later in the evening I had to go to mom's and take her to the drugstore to get her pills, took Nelson down to Steves to run a bit , and it certainly wore her out, I really need to get to places where she can run more. but I really don't know where that will be.

today I missed you so bad, why in hades can I not get you off my mind, I thought I would put your picture away with the move, but nay I have not. why do I think that you ever think of me, and why does it matter after so long. I wonder if I shall ever find the love that we had.

at times it seems as though the days just spin so fast that one looks like the other, it is only with careful observation and reflection that one realizes that each is unique and different from the other. the same may be said of people as well, sometimes you have to look beyond what you perceive.

Do we care to carry the dreams
to live within our minds
to hide from the pain, the hurt the fear
Do we care to carry the dreams
that bring an inner peace
a soothing of the soul
Do we care to carry the dreams
where nothing can harm
no fear of the unknown
Do we care to carry the dreams?

1998

When the journey ends
will I know that it has come to a close?
Will I continue to search
for that unanswerable truth
that makes life such a mystery
and love such a ruse?

Correct me if I'm wrong - the gizmo is connected to the flingflang connected to the watzis, watzis connected to the doo-dad connected to the ding dong.
