Doing Laundry

Doing Laundry

      I haven’t aired out all my dirty laundry. There are certainly more soiled sheets. But, they have nothing to do with love.   Domesticated, we met online and thought, There is a possibility we can press, into each other’s arms and discover love.   I have a lot of washing to do. […]

Adventures in China: A Photographic Essay, Part I

Adventures in China: A Photographic Essay, Part I

During the last nine days of July, 2015, my girlfriend Nina and I went on our first “an adventure of lifetime” trip to China. Now that her kids are grown up and out of the house, and we both near fifty years of age, it’s time for both of us to truly enjoy our lives. […]

There is Nothing Wrong With Falling in Love

There is Nothing Wrong With Falling in Love

There is nothing wrong with falling in love. Especially if you have failed before. I can tell you this with experience. I have failed and failed yet came back. I have seen my house flooded and ruined. Have seen the boards warp and rot. I have seen the doors fall off, And I can tell […]

Love as You Imagine

Love as You Imagine

    How come it’s never like you imagine? You imagine waterfalls and walks on the beach. You imagine milkshakes and banana splits, and then you get a suffering prickly bush.   How come when it rains the buckets opens up? You imagine singing and dancing with an umbrella. You imagine skipping around the puddles, […]

Across the Street from the Christmas Tree

Across the Street from the Christmas Tree

      The rain came down for days. The river flooded the entire park. All that was summer and fun, Went mucked under water with mud. We watched a mobile home float, Away with a half open blue cooler, A dumpster, canoes, coffee tins, A Big Wheel, and broken styrofoam. Yet, just days before […]

Until You

Until You

This had nothing to do with you. I needed a flower.  I was overcome by death. You were not on my radar. I looked elsewhere to no avail. And then there was you. And, for some strange reason, It was all about you. You are the teacher that bends, melts, and learns to become one. […]
