The stillness of a warm Spring Day.


Sunday, March 29, 2009


It reminds me the way snow starts falling slowly at first, then more and more.

The first tendrils of smoke were like small clouds drifting by but as the day grew longer it was more and more.

The night seemed oppressively dark and just wrong… like there was evil upon the wing...

The morning brought darkness and despair... What could it be that the desert was dark at midday?

Was the apocalypse upon us? Yes it was we found out soon enough, some mad man decided to play God and he smote the earth with wrack and ruin…

While flying up north later that day I witnessed the Apocalypse first hand…burning pools of oil soiling Mother Nature’s fine landscape…

Soaring immense clouds of smoke filling the air blotting out the sun…

As if the world were closing its eyes to hide from the shame of what a man had done…

Days passed and no relief… the rains came and the world was covered in black oil coated drops… Mother Nature wept.

Note: This poem is for the men and women of many nations that dared to stand up for the little guy. It is about the smoke created by the oil well fires set deliberately in 1991 by a sick and demented madman. The picture was taken during midday flying into Kuwait international airport the second day of the Ground war. So as you can see it is dark as night and a sad sight to see. That is an oil well burning on the ground, one of the many that were destroyed by a madman.

Today while walking thru the woods of White's nature preserve in Litchfield CT , i came across this tree stump with all these new pine trees growing out of the old stump and it caused me to think about life springing forth from death. Last year about this time my life came crashing down around me, and now a year later, I am happier, saner, more relaxed than I have ever been. I don't miss my old life but I sure do enjoy my new life. Thank you my friends who have helped me see the light along the way, So here is to you Shake and Kathy, Rich n Laurie

To me what Love is about and what it is like

Love seems to sneak up on you. It is this warm feeling that surprises you. The person you are in love with, seems to be in your thoughts all of the time, when you close your eyes, she is there, when you are sitting in the darkness staring into the distance, she’s there. When you watch the sunset and the stars begin to appear in the night sky, and that high lonesome moon rise, you wonder if she is thinking about you. In the lonely cool before the dawn you think of her. When you hear certain songs or a watch a scene from a movie that both of you loved or read a book that touched both of your hearts, you think about her. You think about her laugh, her smile, her voice, the way you felt when she touched you. You think about the way you felt when she touched you. You think about the look in her eyes when you tell her that You love her. One day like a sudden storm, you realize that this person is a part of you, the best part; this is the best feeling in the world.

Todays Wine review

Today's wine is Crane Lake Pinot Noir: A California red, so as we all know if I am posting about a California wine, then it has got to be good.
My thoughts are a great nose, smooth long lasting finish, just the right amount of tannins without being harsh and a great value at less than the price of a Combo meal at a fast food place!
Try this one and you will not be disappointed!
