There seems to be no sun today. I sit on my couch, sniffing and sneezing and staring out at the snow covered yards. Gun metal grey clouds above the barren street today. A car or truck passes every now and again as they dance towards there destination. Everyone has somewhere to go...something to do. There are no destinations anymore. Only resting points between trips to the next resting point. They all hurry on with the theory that their destination is more important than yours. Their purpose trumps yours...makes yours unworthy. With more money...a faster car...more things...we gain the appearance of being happy. But what have we lost?

"Damn!" Cliff finished his ice cream cone just as he spotted the drips on his red sweater. Licking the tip of his thumb, he brushed at it trying to get it off his large belly. He walked along the path watching the people. Compared to most, he was over dressed. The arm pit sweat stains grew by the second. The splash of water hit the beach just south over his right shoulder. Children giggled as they had their first chance of the spring to play. A brunette in hot red shorts sped past him on roller skates. Her pale skin winked at him from under her white halter top. "Too skinny," Cliff whispered. "That can't be healthy." He saw a shock of red hair over his right shoulder before he felt her run into the back of him. The female scream made [Read more...]
Drifting home tonight as the wind a flurries push me on my way. Sign ahead says Newmarket is ahead, but I'm not convinced that is where I want to go. The Moon is in hiding tonight. Considering how bright it was for Solstice, it probably needs to recharge. Took the dog out a week ago, and it seemed as though she was mimicking the sun. Perhaps it was flirting. She was showing her bright feathers to reinitiate the chase across the sky. It was wonderful feeling her light across my face. Feeling her looking...and I cannot decide if she looks up at us, or down upon us. Either way, we should give her a show to make her smile and grow even brighter in the night sky.
Going to retread over something tonight. I have talked about this on previous blogs...before I *ahem* evolved and found WordPress. Evolution versus Creationism is the age old debate about the big bang or the forbidden fruit...God created Earth and Heaven or some freak cosmic accident. Were these the only two options, I would firmly see evolution as, easily, where we came from. However, I always have seen a third theory as one that could explain the possibility of both. We are not initially from here. I first heard this theory, probably fifteen years ago...and, for me, it potentially explains both the gap evolution cannot yet quite figure out as well as the story of Adam and Eve. Think about it.

I still see her face, beautiful as day... - Sting, The Hounds of Winter "Let's talk about the elephant, shall we?" He sipped from his beer. "Elephant?" Derek was not as large as the tank behind the bar, but he was big. African American with a near buzz cut afro hair. He wore a red tie over his black shirt and slacks, but even the loose shirt could not hide the impressive shoulders and chest underneath. "Cliff, come on. You buy two seats on an airplane. That makes you an expensive date for a woman." Cliff chuckled as he gulped and almost lost a mouthful of beer onto his red sweater. "You have such a way with words." Derek smiled at him as he picked up his beer with one hand and sipped. Glancing at his watch he returned his [Read more...]
Was not going to be online today, but I am sitting alone with the Doberman in the car as my date for the day has gone into the barn to check on her horse. The Doberman is not happy. I am feeling much better. Still have to cold but this morning is the first time in four days I have felt well enough to go out. Called my kids this morning and they got flooded with gifts (as predicted) by their mother. That's only the beginning as they will be off to their her parents later today as well. That type of excess that they are going through today always bothers me. Not much I can do from here. I guess this is the punishment for picking badly on relationships. I miss my kids something awful this morn...but I am scared to think of the mess I would [Read more...]
"You have any wheat beers?" The question surprised him as she did not look like a beer drinker. He watched the bartender, a tank of a man in a black vest over his white shirt and red tie. The bartender mumbled an answer. "I'll have one." She held up one finger. Her green eyes smiled from under her pageboy red hair. Her pale skin was slightly rouged by her makeup. She wore the infamous "little black dress" over her ample bosom and long black nyloned crossed legs. Stiletto heels adorned her feet with one on the bar's foot rest. The diamond on her finger was almost too noticeable. He watched from his own bar stool, unobserved. He dusted a crumb off his red sweater and glanced down at the burger in front of him. His belly was sore as [Read more...]
It is 23:45 and I'm waiting for my meds to kick in. Thanks to a cold or something I picked up at the office on Monday, just was not in a writing mood at all today. Back on my horse tomorrow, though... Or as my old fav cliche goes, save a horse, ride a cowboy. A little too cold for my cowboy hat at the moment, but the stallion Percheron and other five horses in the barn will appreciate the break. Tonight's sleep music is a mix between Fleetwood Mac's Behind the Mask...the one were they replaced the stoned Lindsay Buckingham with two guitar players...and the Foo Fighters' In Your Honor (note, the missing 'u'), Disc 2. Fleetwood Mac has this uncanny knack for song writing. With or without Buckingham, everything they did grows on me if I [Read more...]
