The keys that open friendship's door
Are in your hands and mine
There's a key called understanding
Fashioned from a rare design;
For this quiet understanding
That is passed from friend to friend
Is what makes a pleasant friendship
Keep blooming with no end.

There's another key most precious
That can open friendship's door;
It's called love and we must use it
Each day, more and more
For if we give ourselves all freely
Ever seeking for the best
Being blind to faults of others
Then true friendship's been expressed.

Man is the weather getting really nasty, it’s a freezing rain out there mixed with snow, and they are saying we could get up to 8 inches of snow by the time this front passes through sometime tomorrow evening, I hate the thought of having to drive to work in it in the morning, I’d rather stay snuggled in bed with Rup Rup beside me.


"Physical courage, which despises all danger, will make a man brave in one way; and moral courage, which despises all opinion, will make a man brave in another."

I'm trying to determine if the new layout will work, not sure it will and then I'll have to try something different, also with the planned changes other changes as well, thinking maybe I'm wasting my time writing here all these years, maybe it's time I give it up.


too busy
too many things to do
too long
too many miles between
too many roads
too many endless hours
too many
too much
too long


Sometimes the sadness sinks in so deep the head pounds just to let you know your still alive.

Where was my heart
lost in thought?

Where have I been
invisible to him?

Where will I be
unknown future to see?


People seem to enjoy things more when they know a lot of other people have been left out of the pleasure.
