  1. Please pray for my sister who died this morning...may her next journey be one of great peace and joy
  2. Best wishes to all those with it. May they recover, be strong once more, and be in harmony...
  3. In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. — Lt.-Col. John McCrae (1872 - 1918) Let us pray for peace
  4. This fascination I believe carries on into the 'entertainment' of violent movies, tv shows, and such. The same people who are aghast at crime in real life, so often embrace it as a form of entertainment in the media. I try to understand that but no luck so far...
  5. Well written RevRainbow...I spent countless hours with my friends doing much the same when I was young...we had a vacant lot nearby with a couple of holes dug out where they tore a house down. We used it as trenches for our WWI battles..
  6. O our Father, the Sky, hear us and make us strong. O our Mother, the Earth, hear us and give us support. O Spirit of the East, send us your Wisdom. O Spirit of the South, may we tread your path. O Spirit of the West, may we always be ready for the long journey. O Spirit of the North, purify us with your cleansing winds. american indian - sioux
  7. Many prayers to them. May they be well and strong soon...
  8. May their next journeys be ones of peace and joy. May the families be at peace and free from suffering...
  9. I think the fun went out of Halloween once adults got into the act....somewhat like little league...
  10. Alos the birthdays of 2 great poets; Dylan Thomas and Sylvia Plath
  11. To me, it might be like that Twilight Zone episode where the little kid knows what you are thinking and can send you to the cornfield...no thanks
  12. Why do many people find the concept of I to be so negative? I believe that I is only negative if it is coupled with I want, I demand, etc...What would replace I?
  13. I would rather appreciate art than contemplate it...
  14. I am one with my father and the universe. I am one with mother earth. I am one with everyone within the reach of my voice. And, in this togetherness, we ask the divine intelligence to eradicate all negatives from our hearts, from our minds, from our words, and from our actions. And, so be it. babatunde olatunji - 1927-2003

  16. May Robin be well soon and free from pain...
  17. 3...I remember taking a vacation with my parents to visit my aunt who lived in Miami Beach. I remember using water wings in the hotel pool and visiting my aunt's house. She had two or three white poodles...Strange, I do not remember anything about my aunt and uncle though...
  18. Out in my back yard I hear you calling me In your throaty roar That cuts through the Thick air of a country summer Running past the house With the peeling paint I race down the road As fast as my legs allow Arriving just in time to meet you The ground trembles at your feet Your glorious carriages roar by To exciting destinations unknown Now I stand at our old rendezvous The wood and steel highway is gone Only a few piles of rocks remain Tossed aside in the weeds You are gone, never to return Like the little boy who used to meet you here
  19. If I am happy Or if I am very sad Crickets chirp, birds sing ---- Saw Jack Kerouac's Old house that is close to mine It is just a house ------ Yellow butterfly A life measured in moments Ah! Too free to care
  20. May she recover her well-being and find peace...
  21. I am currently reading Jack Kerouac Selected Letters 1957-1969 by Ann Charters
