and from a divorce when he was 3, we didn't get to see to much of him and me.
we rode horses, and camped and fished. Not near enough, not enough times to make up for when we lived just a few blocks apart.
i remember "his weekend daddy" when throwing him and sister up into the air in the pool.
You never can estimate the loss of time spent when you separate from your wife, and children.
It's painful all the way around. He is great with people, and funny, he can sell and is creative. a photographer sensitive to the eye for art and the emotion of life. He's in a relationship and happier than I've seen him in years so I'm glad of that.
i am not at home tonight, and don't know that i can go home again....not to that place where the weight has become and tipped the scale to unbearable.
Eighteen years in my parents home, the 17 moves in life, followed by 20 years in yet another home, off goes the light. A whole new shift in survival and sanity says go yet into another sphere of unknown. Take the jump, look for what can not be saved, then look again, before looking away.
Nothing is right. I have to make far reaching decisions that will be helpful though the picture doesn't seem right just now. This is when you look to heaven for a direction.
If I could write and paint for those books, then I would be happiest,
There is an audience here, imagine my stories and novels for sale.
Over 100000 page hits in the past year. Would you like to buy a story from this writer?
I might have to pull that down.

The couple walks along licorice of a sidewalk where to the left is fire raging from streetlights. To the right is the mountain ridge and icey lake with lights and a tree whose leaves are nearly gone.
The woman takes the man's arm as he gazes into the firelight. The muddles of puddles of color make our eyes pan from side to mid range, to side. The colors more symbolic, and far reaching as our eyes gaze with a wonder at the artist's creativity. The man's suit is black with white hot reflections, nested is the woman's jacket.
The light's reflect across the ponds ice. The fire fades to the skies,
and I wonder where is my woman tonight.
and so the day began with my China Doll, before meeting my Mover Shaker friend back in Indy from China and headed for a Chinese Church.
My friend showed me his heart of courage and shared all his exploits of fight and failure to the projects that propel him today.
The church I attended 8 years ago prior to My Love's arrival here one night in Columbus Ohio. We had known each other for six years and there was no holding back. It was on...and it was in her eyes I would see heaven on this earth caught in glimpes of a grace and beauty elicted from that helix of fire and smoke only two lovers make.
Today I have witnessed the struggle of my friends and my basketball team mate and bible study colleague led me back to where my mind and heart need to be, in the game.
The lioness of the family cheered the Colts as they won barely another game. She put me into a perspective that I could hear and understand.
She has done all she can, I must be the man.
I listened to a suicidal friend be calmed by the phone call of an acquaintance who needs her nursing help, lifting her from agony to
a placid place. Inviting her into a life now touched by Parkinson's j
I heard as my friend was framed from a car theft and put into a
Georgia jail for two years, keeping close to God to save his sanity.
He gave me the message and put out his help on a project rooted in despair, he didn't care. He will give me a hand to help.
Sometimes he said to look at the blessing, before the fire. I remembered a lesson that occurred to me over ten years, when you should go a week without a negative thought. You frame everything into the blessing learned and that keeps everything in a positive outlook.
So it has been a day. I listened and I learned once again. That we will have strife, pain, and sh_t but there will be glory in return.
The lion and the lioness
The lioness teaches her cubs to fight. To play and hunt.
Protector of her young.
She would scale a sheer embankment to save one who had
fallen and is splayed in the dirt crevace supporting the baby's body.
This Thanksgiving I'll be with my Mom. The grand matriarch that she is and always will be.
We'll be eating out so she won't have to cook. It will be at a family place that's been around almost as long as she has.
I look forward to it with a bittersweet heart. Thankful she will just be there for her health has taken such a slide
in the recent couple of years.
It doesn't seem to affect her drive and verve for life. Every boy with a doting Mom is very lucky. I am trying to find the picture of her with a pencil skirt with me on her lap and a bottle in my mouth. She has the expression that she has just hit the $400,000,000.00 lottery......looking at me. I have the expression that I dare not take my eyes off this woman who seems possessed. Her possession is me, and she has always been a supportive
one, even though she can yell and swear at me like Vince Lombardi, her humor is that of Lucielle Ball.
They say when you lose your parents you feel very alone. My Dad was a wonderful gentle man who I lost in 2000. The loss of Mom will be something I cannot fathom. The relationship is close, but not too close.
She has let me fall on my face, and her comment on my choice of women has been: "you sure can pick 'em". I will try to be better this time.
She was a stunning super model in a local department store when I was just a kid at L.S. Ayres. She was a disc jocky who played rythme and blues on WHYT readio under the name of Donna Jane~DJ the She Jay. Then she became sales professional selling air time for a radio station and had publishing background. She always said I could do whatever I wanted and I listened to her.
I am not a young man as society would see me though I am told I don't look my age, guess I don't think in those terms. But I know about how this economy is and it's not pretty. I have been the pointed target of age discrimination by 20 somethings twice in the workplace to EEOC vintage.
I am thankful for Mom, beyond words for all her Love, for there is nothing quite like a Mother's Love. Dad's is tremendous and such a model of
a gentleman true to the core and strong.
Life must go on.
