One Life’s Measure

>> 3.22.2012

If the measure of a life
     is gauged by the moments
that steal our breath,
     then my life has a full measure

What stutters my breath;
     what extent does my life encompass?

Capturing that elusive word
     when writing, gazing upon
the endless dance of stars
     painted across a midnight sky,

the melancholy susurration
     of wind in the trees, a pas de deux
of wood and flame, tracing
     the arch of your brow, savoring
your exhalation upon my nape

and the arpeggio of our love
     and life together.


Quote for the Day

>> 3.14.2012

Two very different quotes today - the first was sent to me by a friend and I love it, so thought I would share. I find both of these quotes to be timely in today's climate.  I hope you enjoy them both.

'Whatever you give a woman, she will make greater.
If you give her sperm, she'll give you a baby.
If you give her a house, she'll give you a home.
If you give her groceries, she'll give you a meal.
If you give her a smile, she'll give you her heart.
She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her.
So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of sh#t.'

“As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there’s a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.”
~ William O. Douglas

Thank you!


New Blog: The Foolish and the Dead

>> 3.07.2012

Over the past few years, I've noticed many changes in our country and in the world about which I have definite opinions.  There seems to be rampant misinformation and outright falsehoods being put forth as fact instead of opinion, blatant disregard for civil rights, a regression in attitudes as well as many things that just plain piss me off.  With that in mind, I've begun a new blog so that I have a separate location for my commentaries, opinions, and even some rants.  

The new blog is called The Foolish and the Dead,  I currently have an introduction post up and will soon have my first topic posting.

I hope you will stop by my new blog, read and let me know your opinion.  This location will continue to be my journal of creative writing. 

I look forward to hearing from you.  Thank you!


About This Blog

The name for this blog was inspired by a quote by Nietzsche, below.

"Dancing in all its forms cannot be excluded from the curriculum of all noble education; dancing with the feet, with ideas, with words, and, need I add that one must also be able to dance with the pen?" ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I plan on this being the start of an incredible journey of discovery and creativity. I invite you to bring your pen, and come dance with me!
