UPDATE lV...Since the posting of UPDATE lll, John had gotten out of prison and went back in two days later. He just could not stay clean. He is out of prison again. He is now in a drug rehab. So it is happening again...

I will be praying for him...I am trying not to get my hopes up for the sake of the kids. They love him so much. Meth is a very evil and powerful destroyer. But is has not taken the love for him away from the kids. They just will always love their daddy. Of course they…

Art Hopping Good for your Heath

Heard on GMA News today:

Socializing is so good for your health that if you don't it is the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day! .... Perhaps those who smoke don't have much of a social life and if they went to ArtHop they would smoke 15 ciggies less per day!!!!

Better yet: Don't smoke, go to Arthop, live long and prosper.

latitude and longitude

Alas, distance is anxiety personified in elements

Distance crosses through the four chambers of her heart

With words of sorrow and distress, the first heart chamber

screams of the curse and mourns the dawn of a potential victim

who longs for a different latitude and longitude than her own.

she flows her way through the winding streams

Just to lye next to him ..

the second heart chamber watchs helpless and hauntingly

trying desperately to squeeze together the… Continue

the sand drifts whisper across the dunes

as the sea bellows back with an exquisite answer

sun glints and stings the sand with truth

and the emptiness of me carries the melody through my core

i am nothing but a discarded shell

would you scour tide pools if that's where i was to be?

or is the vastness of the sea casting doubts on you as well?

an alabaster tone rings true

my feet are hanging over the edge for you

sand coarse's questions through the… Continue

beautiful tragedy.

Wasting away til there is no more ...

The way of the world sits still and

waits to see what happens next ..

In her mind the scenes flow with ease

but life itself is broken and sad ...

Her sleepless nights have taken their toll ..

Intentions filled with doubt and fear ..

He is no longer near ..

The paranoid delusions give her

heavy heart reason to sigh ...

As the blood pumps through her veins ...

Her mind searches for clarity

among what… Continue

lost & found

Stars falling from heaven

To land at their feet

Waiting for the wish

That blinded the sun

Yellow hue becomes darkness

As time surpasses patience

The star sings orange and deep

And burns red with hope

Before turning blue ...

From the cold stark existence

without you ...

Willing devastation from possibility

Pale star of nature

Will surmise the reality .

Her colors will rise & fall ..

Until night comes to see… Continue

Off to Dreamland ..

Off to dreamland where the grass grows black and the tree wither and twist in the dark sun and I finally rest and sleep upon the hilltop of a midnight moor. As eyes close I awake to see myself content with unconsciousness. I set out towards the moor .. The sky is patent white spotted with grey-blue clouds that shape the world we live in.

I pass upon a wishing well and upon reaching it I ponder which wish i will toss down it's gullet. The coins of dreams show thru the iridescent water.… Continue
