Beautifully put and I concur

Posted on Sun, 31 Oct 2021

Beautifully put and I concur with your conclusion. We are on this one way train, but we can make transfers while it rides with understanding there is a finite amount of track. I loved your outlook, to look ahead and let the past remain as is. I...

This ending did not

Posted on Sun, 31 Oct 2021

This ending did not disappoint. Loved the justice doled out to the two guilty parties and absolutely loved the mausoleum opening to John to enter into that white light. There is a scene at the end of the movie "Ghost" where the guilty friend is...

Perfect Halloween reading..

Posted on Fri, 29 Oct 2021

Posted on Thu, 23 Sep 2021

Your poem is very nostalgic

Posted on Wed, 29 Sep 2021

I still like to listen to the songs of my best summer days cranked to the decible levels of max, but maybe that's because I blew out some part of my eardrums back inmy teens and can no longer hear the music unless it is pumped up to high volume,...

Posted on Sat, 11 Sep 2021
