Gainesville is about 60 miles north of the DFW area. I like to do day trips when I can and I felt cooped up after our historic snowfall here so I made a return trip to Gainesville only this time with a camera. You can enter from the highway directly… Read full post »
Nobody wins. Such is the price of Silence."
My grandfather said that just before he died. He was talking to God. I was just a kid from the city hiding in the barn just… Read full post »
I'll write a lovely poem for you!
May I motor in your car?
I'll sing your praises as a star!
I keep a blog on the internet,
It's sure to change the world I bet!
My words are the way to worldly riches!
Tests hearts of bended branches,
Here's a few pics from our winter storm here in DFW.
Who am I?
The one true leader for these times
Who am I?
A uniter, not a divider
Who am I?
The agent for change that must happen
Who am I?
A practical man who knows the real solutions
Who am I?
A dreamer of people's hopes!
Who am I?/… Read full post »
Now, it's easy to come up with a final line of five syllables. What's hard is finding one that's relevant to a heartbeat, personal and yet universal. I can't finish this. Maybe I need to finish me… Read full post »
of two souls;
Tenderness lost in the wind;
Broken heart remains.
There once was a time when a grown man could squat down in the grocery store in front of a small child and say, "Hello, little girl!" and the mother would say, "What a nice man!"/…
Well, you dope
Keep saying it's the only system!
Poverty is our evolution
Well, you dope
Human greed does all the fixin'!
But if you say love is perfection
Don't you know I'm gonna stomp and pout!
Don't you know it'll never
500 years ago the most dominant force on the planet was religion. Wars were raged and lives tortured over whose version of God was correct. (Of course, this still goes on today, just in a different form, in case you're tempted to feel morally superior). Kings were obliged to… Read full post »
"I'll write something lighter next time." - Dr. Spudman44
The good doctor issued this near apology recently for his Friday Fiction piece on a potential Iraqi suicide bomber - some would say a not very entertaining subject! But this one small incident speaks to a larger issue/… Read full post »
I went to visit the great Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth today. The Kimbell is one of the finest small museums in the world. "The Cardsharps" by Caravaggio (on whom one day I'll do a posting) is my favorite piece/…
I don't know why I feel compelled to post this at this time. Maybe it's because I identify with the lead character somehow. Maybe it's because I feel her fate. Maybe it's because I feel yours.

Many years ago there lived an Emperor who was so exceedingly fond of fine new clothes that he spent vast sums of money on dress. To him clothes meant more than
I've always found the idea of an art school amusing. To me, it's sort of like having a school on how to be a Japanese warlord. It just happens, it can't be taught. Sure, you could/…

I had surgery a couple of months ago on a place no fiber processing mammal should have to endure. For that privilege I've been required to pay an endless series of bills, one of which for $750. I wrote out a check, painfully parting with my ill gotten gains and… Read full post »

America is losing the "war on terror" - as expected. We have not won one battle, nor are we winning on a single front, nor does it look like we ever intend to. (Some will falsely claim we have "won" in Iraq. Reality is we lost by the sheer fact/…

Left in a discarded rush;
On the ground
There's a feeling
See their icy breath;
And on every street corner you'll see:
Screaming yells, funky smells,
It's eviction day in the city!
Time to die, suicide/
2009 saw my entry into Open Salon where I rode a wave of emotion to heights I hadn't been in years only to crash and burn to become the hollowed out shell who stands before you today. Now I'm running in the wilderness surrounded by wolves in shameless wolve's clothing waiting for… Read full post »
