2006

it seems that with nothing ever changing in my life I have few words to write, so thus this is it for today.

2005

ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
FOUR. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
FIVE. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight.
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
NINE. Love ! deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives.
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly.
THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.

2004

I have a headache today, I wonder if they will ever leave me

2003

it is beginning to feel more like home at least the one room I am allowing myself to make mine..it is strange it is all mine but yet I'm not willing to expand beyond the same small space I occupied in the little house. I wonder if I will ever move outward and utilize all that I have

2002

the maze went on forever, in circles we walked, and weaving to and fro the exit finally appeared. and then on the drive home, the debate on rather chocolate cows really exist and if not how and where does chocolate milk come from. the innocents and the belief in things that only children can, brings back the reality that sometimes we look at life to seriously.

2001

We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.

2000

upon the sky of black I gaze, I see, I sing, I cry
upon the hidden stars a twinkle, a glitter a wink
upon my heart lays the future, the past and the burden
upon my soul comes the cry for more and fear of the unknown

1999

As the mountains reach for the clouds kiss, and the sky's tears. I find I too reach for you, the unknown and the unforeseen. As the rain falls upon the beaten earth, cleansing, washing away the soil, giving life and rebirth. I find I too have began a cleansing, a rebirth of thy inner self.

As each breath taken, sustains this life. I find each moment holds the same life preserving substance, each moment spent drives the desire to continue on to the tomorrow and the unforeseen promises it holds.

1998

I want to tell you a secret
a burning desire tells me no
I want to share with you
a part know one else knows

But fear holds my words
for I know once spoke
it would change things
and I may lose

If I whispered in the dark
how much you really mean
would it scare you
would you run from me

I wished I could reveal this secret of my heart
and I wished I would know your reaction
how you really feel
deep inside

Do you think you could Love me
with all of your being
as I do you?
Giving me that feeling of endlessness?

Would you treat me tenderly
sparing nothing for life in theory
but in the mind where souls connect?

1997

Because things are the way they are, things will not stay the way they are.
- Bertolt Brecht -
