..June 2004  New York..

I turned 30 years old last month. I treated myself to a crepe filled with raspberries and nutella. A treat, considering I gave up eating red meat a week before. It’s been 4 weeks since I’ve bitten into a hamburger. I sat at a candle lite table in a late night French Cafe yesterday and watched my friend chew a steak. A third of the way through her meal I asked if I could get a whiff of the steak. It was well done, the way I like it. The right shade of brown with a little char on top. The vapors of steaming grizzle smelled tempting. I could taste it regardless it wasn’t in my month. My eyes disappointed to see my arm slide the plate back across the table. I noticed she didn’t cut her steak with the same vigor after my sniff. Either I had converted her to my cause or my nose got to close to her sirloin. I don’t know how long I can keep eating french fries without the hamburger.

I’ll see you when the water in the Thames turns cold…

..July 2007 New York..

I’ll see you when the water in the Thames turns cold and your in the mood for a night time swim. I miss you my friend. It was fun.

Weeping Willows Against the Layered Gray Sky

..July 2007  New York..

My words don’t get noticed in Battersea anymore.  I was waiting for you on that corner in Knightbridge with a picture frame under my arm.  Went to Hyde Park, didn’t notice the cool drizzle when I was with you.  Now I only remember the weeping willows against the layered gray sky.  I hope your wearing a tiara when you swim in the Thames.

“… the kingdom of the blind…the one eyed man is king…..”

No words can better describe the world any better than these 12.  Much of it is our fault.  We have to suffer from our poor decisions.  We get what we ask for.

June 2007..

A tv poll has reported 60% of Americans disapprove with the direction of the country.  I don’t feel bad.  These are the same people who voted this roster of goons into power.  TWICE.  I wonder what they are thinking?  And the way it looks, if they elect the “Nasty Little Man,” 2007 will look like Pleasantville compared to hisapproach to life.
