Look Up

With only a few droplets of water I cup in my hands not to spill
I'm grateful of what little I do have and not dwell of what I don't
I look up to see beyond the sky of what might come
For the future will bring things that bless us all

If it doesn't, I will bear with what is delivered and carry on

Merry Christmas

May this day of Giving and Love
Encourage you to slow down and enjoy the simple things
May this wonderful day touch your heart in a special way
Wishing you much Peace, Love and Joy
That spreads out into the New Year and throughout your Life

Have a very Merry Christmas to All
And a Blessed New Year

Damaged Angel

We are all Faulty with Imperfections

This is what makes us all Beautiful

Good vs Evil

So, in the month of December the Devil has been trying to sabotage me.  He cut the lines in my pick up's transmission the first week, leaving me to stall out in the middle of busy intersections.  He snapped my break lines the second week, running me off the road as it was the only way for me to stop.  Then, the Devil decided on the third week to jack up my front end Ball Joints trying to break my axle and tear my wheels off, attempting to force me to a collision.

After the Devil sucked large amounts of money out of my wallet getting it all repaired, on the fourth week the he decided to blow out my front tire because he didn't succeed the first three weeks.

Where there is Good, there is always Evil
You cannot have one without the other

When Evil tried ever so desperately to overtake control of my Battered and Beat Up Forsakenly Departed pick up, Good prevailed.  The Angels were always by my side, guiding and protecting me.  One has to think of something good that comes out of all this.

There's one week left...  Keep the Faith!

Christmas Memories

Moving the calendar back approximately 65 years ago as I'm getting into the Christmas spirit.  This photograph taken by my late Grandfather or Grandmother of my Great Aunt Emma and Uncle Al on Christmas morning in the late 1940's early 1950's.  My Great Aunt is looking stunning as she always does.  She was notorious for easily sweet talking a Police Officer out of writing her a parking ticket.

My Great Uncle just past away last year at the ripe age of 94 who was the President of the Empire Can Corporation in New York.  I'll never forget the night of my Brother's wedding when he let me drive his brand new Lincoln Continental Town Car.  That Beast was longer than the Queen Mary and  drove as if I was floating on air.  Talk about having white knuckles while gripping the steering wheel.

It's these memories that I treasure so much and puts in perspective what life is all about.  Family and Friends and the fond memories that go along with them,

Ghost Train

The morning rain gently falls upon the Autumn leaves and the pitter-patter sound of the delicate drops emanates along the westbound tracks leading no where.  The heavy grey clouds block the rising sun, stifling the bright colors Mother Nature provides and an abandoned train car sits motionless on an otherwise out of operation railroad.

I walk along these lonely tracks that echo the sounds of colossal Locomotives of the past.  Ghost Trains loom before me as I imagine two hundred tons of steel forcefully Barrel-Assing by with a rumble so defining that it shakes the Earth.

The smell of rotting wet leaves and coal burning infuses the air, ventilating through my nostrils, filling my lungs.  I gasp and cough briefly before exhaling the fumes as it all dissipates into thin air.  In a blink of an eye, the Ghost train vanishes without a trace leaving only a memory of how great it once was.

She Weeps in Sorrow

In the early morning of the Night
When the Moon is still shining Bright
She appears descending down the Stairs
In hopes that her family will be There

They went away many years Ago
And somehow she will never let Go
The family mansion where they all Dwell
A tragic fate no one dares to Tell

She weeps in sorrow forever Now
Never knowing who, what where or How
No understanding that she left Too
All the reason she's still feeling Blue

In the early evening of the Day
When the Sun is about set Away
She disappears assending up the Stairs
Knowing that her family is never There

A ride in the forest can lead you nowhere
But that same ride can make to be the best Adventure ever

Climb in and enjoy the ride

Boat in the Woods

How far would a Boat Row
If a Boat could Row
No one would Know
How far a Boat could Row

It would be quite a Show
To see a Boat Row
Then we would Know
That a Boat could Row

One thing we Know
It would be very Slow
To see a Boat Row
If a Boat could Row

But we all Know
That a Boat cannot Row
No matter how Slow
It just won't Go

Devils are Angels

If you believe in Angels
Then for sure you believe in the Devil

The Devil is as real as an Angel
For once the Devil was one of God's favorites

The Devil does not have horns
The Devil is not fiery red as illustrated

The Devil can be beautiful
As beautiful as an Angel

The Devil is an Angel that has fallen
The Devil is around us as the Angels are

Beware the Devil
For you might mistake it as being an Angel

Skating with Angels

Don't weep at my Grave
For I am not There
I am skating with the Angels
Skating in Mid-Air

Skating in the Sunshine
So Playfully
Skating with Angels
So Wild and Free

Angels are our Friends
Forever we Skate
Come skate with Us
Here we will Wait

Don't weep at my Grave
For I am not There
I am skating with the Angels
Hoping I'm in your Prayer

Lock it Up

Every once in a While
We lose our Religion
Taking it out on Those
Who don't deserve It

Now take all your Anger
And stash it in a Locker
Spin the Combination
So no one can crack It

Release all your Hatred
Go hide it in a Catacomb
Deep within the Tunnel
So no one can find It

I know when you find Peace
You will feel so much Better
I know when you find Peace
You'll write "I Love You" in a Letter

Go out into the big World
And share all the love you Have
Passing it all Around
So everyone can feel It

Share it with your Brother
Share it with your Sister
And hug all your Friends
Let them all embrace It

Every once in a While
When we lose our Religion
We still carry the Love
Though we may not show it

I know that you found Peace
You now feel so much Better
I know that you found Peace
Writing "I Love You" in a Letter

Stand Tall

We Stand Tall
Among the Angels

We Stand Tall
Without Standing on Someone

We Stand Tall
When Kneeling to Aide a Friend

We Stand Tall
Being a Victor

We Stand Tall
Without having Victims

Stand Tall

Spineless Soul

In the cupboard you hide as you dismantle the World around you
For when you are out, your spineless soul is too meek to express your true colors

Yet, your hidden fury rages only when you are not seen
Show yourself, face the World and endure what is coming

Sunday, December 4, 2016



You're feeling the sensation of the World whirling around you as the floor is shifting, tilting and being pulled out from underneath you causing you to lose balance.  When standing it feels as if a Ghost is deliberately shoving you causing you to have to grab onto things to keep from falling.  Looking up makes the ceiling spin like a fan and looking down looks as if the floor is sloped and you're sliding down.

Nauseousness kicks in making you feel the need to vomit.  The mere sight or thought of food is so torturous that it heightens the nausea.  As your World rapidly spins faster and faster, Tinnitus happens, making your ears ring with defining sounds while your eyes twitch swiftly for a moment giving you Double Vision before it stops.

So after to increase the discomfort you are already going through is a Migraine headache that elaborate the dizziness and nausea.  Your body starts to shiver as you break out into a cold sweat and your gag reflexes trigger making you feel like vomiting again.  Your lose of coordination from being off balance makes you feel like you're sliding downward causing you to drop things.

These are all the symptoms of Vertigo that fortunately I never experienced.  However, my Wife is going through this as I type this and it appears to be hereditary as her Mother suffers as well as her late Grandmother.

I am the wall that keeps her from falling!

Painted Smile

And when I see you, there is always a smile on your face.  Though, it hides how you really feel deep inside.  Filled with pain and despair yet, wanting the World to know that everything is just fine.

Been Daydreaming

My apologies for not posting the past week or so for there has been much to do with trials and tribulations in life as of late.  Not to worry, all is fine and I'll be back in the swing of things before too long.

Tis the Season when it all happens and we try to get it all done at once or perhaps it's when everything happens at once.  Who knows...  Hell, I don't even know what day it is anymore.  He He!  Just have to stop and daydream now and then to ease the rush of life!
