Wrapping in blankets
Of familiarity
Wards off chilly new.

Darkened wispy clouds
Veil the reddish setting sun.
Feather painted sky.

Mother and Daddy,
Both long gone are with me still.
Ghosts and memories.

A door that is closed
Can be opened once again.
Doors make holes in walls.

A Portrait of the Day





She wakes with a start this keeper of your mother , father, sister, brother. She stumbles to the bathroom still in half slumber. She runs the water in the tub lost in thought and no thought at all. Running on auto pilot of scrubbing and brushing and dressing. She walks to the car mumbling about about a forgotten lunch on the table or misplaced homework assignment. The dark silence accompanies her to the car. She fiddles with the radio readying herself for the long ride.

Okay, Relax

Okay, relax. It's my choice

to fly by the seat of my pants

and my voice

will carry me places

emerge and emote,

emitting exuberance all the places I float.

So, relax. Stay ethereal.

Just this side of dilereal.

And know that in matters

that really do count,

where there is love,

love will win out.

Where you go isn't large.

It's the paths that you…

I-25 song



She closed the French doors

and stood by the mantel,

Grabbed the fire poker

whopped him on the head.

Found a roll of duct tape,

bound him up…

Dark whispers to me.
Unseen breezes caress me.
Night is my lover.

What the hell happened?
I think my head exploded!
No, wait - just my hair.

The Chocolate Train









Trains have always fascinated many. Runaway cabooses, passenger cars filled with drowsy diners, or boxcars brimming with wild hobos, transporting all far off to fragrant destinations. Yes, there’s something mysterious about a good train ride.



A few years ago, we took the famous Colorado Narrow Gauge Railroad excursion from Durango to Silverton-fifty-two miles of the San Juan scenic byway. The choices varied on how… Continue

a Texas music legend in the making

I found my old ear-training/sight-singing classmate, Adam Carroll, through, you may have guessed, Facebook, listed as a favorite of another musician. I…

Heart and Soul

Journal writings usually reflect some monumental event of importance to you.

Each one of those events will evoke emotions within you. Sometimes,

they are things we are grateful for and sometimes, they are things we

grow from, I call them the soul of our writings. These are the special

things that make your heart sing. Let me give you a few examples here

from this journal.…

Will you be gone very long?
Can I come along?

It's getting harder
To play the macho guy part.
Can I drop the mask?

Two Very Special Men

My beloved father was killed in a freak helicopter accident when I was 10 and a half. The "halfs" were so important at that age. Only 2 weeks before, he had flown his helicopter to my school where I was attending summer school. He landed on the play ground, came in and told the principal he was taking me for the day. My classmates were so jealous. All of the teachers called recess so the kids could see the helicopter. Off we went for the adventure of a lifetime! There I sat next to my daddy…

Father's Day

Father's Day



One of the earliest memories I have of my father was when we were on vacation in Colorado in the early 50's. Several hours after leaving the motel that morning headed west I

suddenly discovered I'd left my stuffed monkey – Zippy- back at the

motel room. After screaming and crying loud enough and with enough

juvenile authority I…
