I need to make a choice on what I want to do with each of my websites. Do I ditch them all and begin anew for 2006. Do I redo and re-edit everything, I know I’m not happy with The Mystery Manor, and I’m not happy with Love and Stuff. The Inner Muse has always been a test site so I guess it’s okay, and then the Vistas which is the meat and the true home of my Web-site, has grown stale and really needs a complete, redo, specifically in the coding to become valid xhtml. Gads the thought of redoing that site wears me out, but there are many things there that truly are near and dear to my heart.

What Should I do?


Friends are God's way of taking care of us


Today the Verse Vista has been transposed

Tomorrow will be the Vault..and slowly but surely I will get it all converted to the new format, although as of yet I haven't decided if I really like it or not, and how user friendly it is. I do know of some issues with older browser compatibility, but not sure about screen resolutions and other factors that may affect the look and behavior of the pages. I wished I were smarter, or I could learn better than I do. Sometimes it is so frustrating being mentally challenged with something you really want to understand and know.


Work was insane, people every where, and as soon as you could clean up one of their messes two more were being made. There was just to much to do and not enough time to get it done. Time went fast, then it was time to come home to my lonely house, a sort of safe haven but yet a sort of prison as well. I long for a day when I can once again live life the way life is to be lived, with love and laughter, sharing and smiles, maybe it will come and then again maybe it never will but yet I must have hope.


I lay in my bed tossing and turning, knowing I need to sleep to get through another day of work, but all the faces of those I have loved appear laughing at me for being a fool to believe in love. laughing at me for loving, laughing at me for wanting to be loved, knowing that I will never be as good as all those other's out there, knowing there is no one for me.


The only time you don't fail is the last time you try anything -- and it works.

Alan Jackson playing on the radio,
I'll go on Loving you.
But it ends someplace
and it seems that place is now

The song changes
Good Night Sweetheart, Sleep Tight, Wherever you are
and the song ends,
a finality hopefully it will be soon

Another song
My Baby Loves me just as I am
How I wished that were true


Today I opened my E-mail and found this beautiful gift from Kelsey. So I thought I would devote today's entry to her Lovely Art Work. If you think you would like to see more of Kelsey's art work, just click on the picture and you'll be transported to her featured homepage.
