Lately, I do a lot of shopping. Meaning: I drive from one store to another hoping to find bread, beans, disinfecting wipes (for basic household clean up), toilet paper, paper towels, multi-surface cleaner, and butter. These are all items that have been disappearing from store shelves, along with pasta. Pasta. I already have pasta. Everyone … Continue reading Target Vs. Walmart
Whoa, why so morbid? It is just a beer. It's not my favorite, and practically my least favorite beer. I prefer a tasty German or Austrian beer - even Japanese biru. But Corona...? Not my favorite. It tastes watered down and weak - bland. Oh, yeah, I actually meant the coronavirus. I was looking over … Continue reading Will I Die from the Corona?
This is from my chapter on music in my Intermission Poetry collection. I love the outdoors and used to spend my childhood hiking through canyons and rocky plateaus, running down gently rolling hills, or hanging out on the edge of a cliff after exploring a small cave. It was nice growing up backed up to … Continue reading Music – Like Poetry
What is poetry to you? For me, it's lyrics of a song. I always speak my poems out loud and listen for the music behind the words. If there is no music, then there are usually no words. When I met the love of my life I said her soul sang to mine. I don't … Continue reading Where? Another Bit of Poetry
Avocado Toast We’d eat avocado toast in our pajamas Say I love you and mean it We’d walk along roads never walked before We’d see things in the sky only for our eyes I remember when I thought the world was always open Always free to visit But now I am not so sure I … Continue reading Avocado Toast – A Poem
It’s All Gone I am standing outside Speaking in the cold Watching my breath As it coils and dissipates Into the air Phantoms of ice and smoke The cool sky evaporates Breath no more Words spoken are gone Never existed Never heard The air takes my meaning It’s all gone When did we last talk? … Continue reading More Intermission Poetry
As Barry Gibbs once asked, "How can you mend a broken heart?" Well, its not very easy. Here's two poems on this Sunday from my Intermission Poetry collection. Plus, I've added three song widgets along the side bar. (Oh wait, I added five songs.) I hope you like the songs. Just a small bit of … Continue reading Sunday Poetry & Emptiness
This song by Post Malone, Circles, gets stuck in my head. I'm placing the version with the lyrics because it helps to understand the emotion behind the song and why it latches onto my mind. https://youtu.be/0sca9FP6zl8 I kept hearing it play on the radio and it makes me cry because it reminds me of life … Continue reading Songs I Can’t Get Out of My Head
I've been watching news and pundits for awhile now. I've been listening to politicians and I've even worked for politicians. But that's not what I want to talk about. Let's not talk politics...yet. (Yes, there was a debate and I'll talk about that later.) What I overwhelmingly hear from all politicians and pundits is that … Continue reading Our Worth – Something to Talk About for Christmas
When I was very young I would go to my little church and just sit up in the loft up by where the baptismal pool was and talk to God. That was my thought. Was I talking to God? Did God listen? Do you think God listens more intently while in a church? Maybe if … Continue reading Do You Find Church Comforting?
