NOT WHAT IT SEEMS

NOT WHAT IT SEEMS It is not my job to please all the people all of the time. In fact, Knot and Nautical takes me in a different direction. If I could, I would run away, disengage, and better yet, pretend I didn’t hear what you said, and...

NO WAY - LOVE DAY

NO WAY – LOVE DAY You love me. And I love you. But one of us is gone. Gone The Way of Day Dreams. Head on the pillow and mind on romance, and can it be true, tomorrow or today will come and go, and nothing changes. No You. No Me. No Nothing....

love to talk

I LOVE TO TALK There are times when you do things and you don’t know why. Mostly when I was younger, everything was like that. Now, I am more extroverted, and I know myself and bring out the best in me. And the difference between being shy...

Close Enough

CLOSE ENOUGH In recent days, I have found myself splitting time with Winter and Flu and Recovery. Swine and Flu and “What-Can-You-Do-Albert?” I look in the mirror and I ask myself, “Am I getting through to you. Changes are required.” And that...

rAIN eCCENTRIC

RAIN ECCENTRIC I may be wrong. I need a refresher course. Been out of the school of life too long. Some body gave me a free ride. Tested well. Had attributes and got a lot of good add-on reviews by the Co-ed’s. This is how I tell it, what...

NEW SUBJECT I thought you and I could do it. Rocket Ship to the moon. Under heavy pressure to find meaning in my life, and I didn’t have a degree in making the other guy a lot of money. And beyond that, nobody was teaching me what to do....

FAST TRACK

FAST TRACK I wake up in the morning, and want you back. And have a ritual for preserving the identity of you in me. Now that seems strange to say it like that: “The You in Me.” And to continue on out the back door, down the winding...

We All Do It

WE ALL DO IT I love blogging because it allows me to go public with my private life. To me this is the best, that I can show up and do the unthinkable. Of course this will take some clarification and some of your time. I am here to report a...
