Buds and bugs break out.
Sun, rain and warmer weather.
Spring is almost here!

My American Journey (installment 2)

I was born in Gallup, New Mexico. A coal mining town. A railroad town. The two go hand in hand.



Historically, Gallup was a community of hard working, hard drinking immigrants who lived right next to the huge Navajo Reservation. It was built because of the huge coal reserves there, and named for the paymaster, whose last name was Gallup. People would say "I'm going to Gallup" when it was time to get paid. The name stuck. Bobby Troupe mentioned the town in his famous song, "Route 66". I… Continue

You look at my soul
And take a piece when you do
Because I trust you.

Twilight wind blows fast,
Pushing cold and dark through me.
Inside there is light.

My American Journey (installment one)

I recently returned to California from a month long jaunt through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and Colorado. And then back through New Mexico and Arizona. A big loop that took me out of the Los Angeles area on Interstate 10 and returned me via Interstate 40. All this in an '83 Toyota van (the very first year Toyota made vans for the American market) with 188,000 plus miles on the odometer. Of course, the odometer stopped working years ago.



When we speak of… Continue

Hurry! Hurry! Rush!
Finish that and then do this!
What? No coffee break?

She chases, I fall.
Tumbling down together
We fall into love.

Come to your Senses







To me, being in a wild world with so many sights, sounds, odors, tastes and textures is a little like walking down dusty paths of a renaissance festival and being bombarded with the scent of apple dumplings and roasted turkey legs while my ears buzz with pan flutes and tambourines, all as I’m…

We cannot go on.
You have become abusive.
Winter, leave here now!

Hold fast to fast fasts.
Grip tight rapid not eating.
Don't you love English?

The Mad Hater's Tea Party

This started as gibberish just for fun. Turned out to be satirical.

Enjoy...I hope

The Mad Hater's Tea Party



Would you like to come to my tea party?

I’m serving folderol and mashed malarkey

Heaps of frippery and frothy flummery

Do you think that this is dumb of me?



There’ll be lots of frivolity at my tea party

Sliced and diced on beds of triviality

Petty petit fours and arguing S’mores

And nobody doesn’t like Sarah Lee…oops, I…

Scrubbing kitchen floors,
Changing sheets, doing the wash -
NOT domestic bliss.

You define yourself.
You want to change who you are?
Say it and you have.

Novel



Okay, so I didn't get around to finishing my novel during NaNoWriMo in November, but I like the idea so I'm going to continue to work on it, slowly but surely. Here's chapters 1-8! Enjoy, comment, critique, etc. Thanks! The formatting of the blog entry is being weird, so sorry it changes colors and then fonts at the end. :)…

The desire is strong.

Dark ecstasy wrapped in foil.

I need chocolate!

I got physical,

But an uphill at the end?

Did it anyway!

I LOVE YOU I DO-stephen dijoseph

LYRICS


the first time I saw your face
I thought it was the best in the
whole human race!
Right then I decided to establish my place ...
right there next to you...


So I proceeded to make my move
I felt very confident and pretty smoov
people could see that I had a groove
as I headed straight…

She gave me a lot:

Her pink jeans and humor genes.

I miss my Momma.
