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

Hold on to what is good even if it is a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe even if it is a tree which stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do even if it is a long way from here.
Hold on to life even when it is easier letting go.
Hold on to my hand even when I have gone away from you.

Just my luck Aunt Flo decided to come visiting again, and with her the awful headaches that come with her as well. Not feeling well and certainly not thinking well today. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day.

2003

I wasn't going to ever write here again, I wasn't going to put it in words what or how I feel because I know there is no reason to, however I find that sometimes the words that I never speak must be put in place to remember where I have been, so maybe someday in looking backwards I will have the sense that I have gone somewhere

2002

words seemed empty when the silence continued.

2001

true love is a longing, desire, yearning
to be with that one person who makes you feel
alive, happy, complete
true love does not come from guilt nor obligation
it comes from within and cannot be predetermined nor denied
it may only come once, or twice

2000

I find that a friend is something you have become
I find that a friend is what I need the most
I find that a friend is the answer to happiness
I find that in you

1999

the sun cannot warm the earth today
winter has come and the heat is gone

1998

The winds blow in a tornado of thought
emotions spin, then spiral downward
feelings that can not be explained
a deep pain within my chest
a hurt with no basis
confusion reigns
turmoil in life
choices right or wrong
emptiness
sacrifices
where does it begin
when does it stop

1997

Life's road has had so many potholes,
I have tripped and stumbled
many times along the way.
But I always pick myself back up
and go on my way.

So today will be no different
I will just dust my rear off and try again
I know I can make it through anything
As long as I try my best
I know I'm not failing me
